Connie Britton reveals secret to perfect hair: Feminism

Connie Britton’s hair is the stuff of legends, or at the very least the stuff of tumblrs and gifs.

But is that all the actress, formerly known as Tami Taylor of “Friday Night Lights,” should be asked about in interviews?

“It’s not what’s on my head; it’s what in it,” the actress says after finally revealing that “feminism” is her hair secret in a recent commercial parody video.

Written by her “Nashville” co-star Laura Benanti and co-produced by Ashley Van Buren, the video was made for the The Representation Project as part of the #AskHerMore campaign, which encourages reporters to ask women questions that speak more to their accomplishments than their looks.

“When used regularly, feminism has been known to produce amazing results,” Britton boasts before name-dropping landmark achievements in the feminism movement like Title IX and the 19th amendment.

The short and hard-hitting satire on shampoo advertisements also includes a disclaimer that says that feminism includes side effects such as “closing the wage-equality gap” and “the wisdom to ignore angry rants in the comment section of this video.”
