On Wednesday, it was announced that Sofia Vergara of Modern Family fame is the new spokeswoman for anti-dandruff standby Head & Shoulders. The actress claims that she grew up using the brand, as did (almost) her entire family -- they'll star with her in a commercial for Head & Shoulders that will premiere in early 2014. In a release about her new endorsement, Vergara said the following: "I am excited to be joining a new family. Head & Shoulders has been a part of my hair care regime and my family’s since I was young. In fact we joke that eight out of nine Vergaras use it; and there are a lot of us.”
The star is no stranger to endorsement deals -- she already has huge campaigns like CoverGirl on her resume -- so we're not that surprised she's inked something with a haircare brand. However, we're a little suspicious of Vergara's claim that she's used Head & Shoulders in her beauty regimen for over 20 years... So, we did some digging, and to our knowledge, she's never once mentioned Head & Shoulders in an interview, but she has name-checked the following haircare brands:
While we can't say we've been loyal to one hair product or brand for our entire lifetime, we're just genuinely curious as to whether or not Sofia actually does use Head & Shoulders. Her hair is really gorgeous, after all.
