If you’ve spent hours during this early campaign season wondering what the secret behind Donald Trump’s seemingly logic-defying blond hair is, here’s a new year’s treat for you: Stylists and insiders are talking!

“He uses a weird bottle of hairspray. He tried to give it to me once, as a friend. It’s bigger than the biggest can of beer,” a former political adviser told the New York Post. Meanwhile, someone who worked on the Miss Universe pageant with Trump is putting money on the specific product being CHI’s Helmet Head (“Donald loved the smell”).


Through it all, the politician’s been adamant that it’s all his hair, and another claimant says that it’s true, though some aid was involved.

“I think it’s all his hair…through transplants,” New York City stylist Louis Licari told the paper, revealing that he spotted the Donald in the offices of a transplant pioneer in the early ’80s.

If you’re looking for the person responsible for his mane shape, search no further than his right-hand lady. In a 2004 interview with Playboy, Trump said he trusted the cutting of his locks to then-girlfriend and now-wife Melania.

“She’s much more artistic than my hair would indicate. But she believes that if you like something the way it is, you should leave it. She doesn’t fool with the hair,” he said, also pulling back the curtain on his daily routine. “I get up, take a shower, and wash my hair. Then I read the newspapers and watch the news on television, and slowly the hair dries. It takes about an hour. I don’t use a blow-dryer. Once it’s dry I comb it. Once I have it the way I like it—even though nobody else likes it—I spray it and it’s good for the day.”
