Pantene has tapped the once hidden beauty benefits of the Cassia plant and the clearly apparent beauty of Padma Lakshmi to launch the new line. Cassia is a naturally derived ingredient which, like Padma, is native to India. Benefits include softer, shinier and stronger hair.
Padma, most popularly known as the host of Bravo’s Top Chef, is additionally known as the first international Indian supermodel and an award-winning cookbook author. She joins a long list of Pantene spokespeople including Maria Menounos and most recently, Stacy London. She will appear in new national television advertising this month, and the photo above is an exclusive behind-the-scene shot from her advertising shoot.
