Cycling’s golden girl Victoria Pendleton is ready to race...glamorously

Victoria Pendleton is Team GB‘s track cycling star and today she starts the race of her life to win gold at the London 2012 Olympics.

The 31-year-old is a dedicated sportswoman on the track but that doesn’t stop her from wanting to look glamorous as she races.

I like to have painted nails when I ride. I like the saying, look good, feel good, go good and I definitely thinks it makes you feel more confident,’ she explains.

Of course, one of Victoria‘s greatest challenges is taming her frizzy hair because wearing a helmet and training outdoors means her locks are affected by heat and humidity.

I need a haircare regime that helps fights friz,’ she says.

‘What my hair needs the most is moisture to keep it smooth and sleek, so I always leave in a hydrating conditioner after washing – which I do most days.’

To get your hair ready to shine like Victoria‘s, try Pantene Smooth & Sleek 24h Frizz Fighter Conditioner, £4.69.

VP‘s on great form and we hope she’ll be whipping that helmet off and swinging her lush hair around on the podium when she collects her gold medal.

Fingers crossed, everyone.

Go, Victoria!
