The Daily Dish Top Chef

Padma's Favorite Way to Use Coconut Oil Has Nothing to Do with Cooking

The #TopChef host reveals her biggest secret to perfect hair.

By Jocelyn Vena

One of Padma Lakshmi's most recognizable features just so happens to be her long, beautiful hair. Unsurprisingly, food is a major key to the Top Chef host's healthy locks. And much like Kyle Richards, Padma's daily routine is a lot more accessible than you might think. 

How to Watch

Watch Top Chef on Bravo Thursdays 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

"You have to get a lot of protein. You have to eat a lot of eggs, a lot of lentils. You don't have to eat a ton of red meat, but you have to eat right [and] get nutrition to your hair, to your nails, your skin," Padma revealed to The Daily Dish. "I also do oil head messages, maybe just twice a month. And then I'll braid my hair and sleep on it, so it gets super conditioned. I'll just use regular oil, like coconut oil or jojoba oil. And I just use a good shampoo."
