There’s Becky with the good hair, then there’s Rachael Finch. The model, presenter and former Miss Universe Australia recently joined the L’Oreal Paris Botanicals family as its newest ambassador and it’s a no-brainer given her luscious locks and down-to-earth personality. We sat down with Rachael to chat about haircare tips, daily routines and life lessons.

What made you want to be a L’Oreal Paris Botanicals ambassador?
Being passionate about health and wellness makes you very conscious of not only what you are putting in your body, but what you put on it. I love L’Oreal’s commitment to using the purest and most ethically sourced ingredients in the Botanicals range. A lot of the hero essential oils that make up the range are ones I use in my day to day life already.
Why do you love the Botanicals range?
Aside from the superior ingredients, the Botanicals range is a well thought out product that ticks a lot of boxes for me with 98% natural origins, recycled packaging and it is vegan based. There is a product in the range that caters to every challenge my hair has from hydration to styling, also the fragrances are divine!
Which range is your favourite? (And why?)
I’m currently loving the Ginger & Coriander Strengthening range– I use this range to combat the constant strain on my hair due to my work schedule. The Ginger & Coriander strengthening potion is a wonderful leave-in treatment to help with daily styling. Just a few drops on the ends of wet hair does wonders.
What’s your go to product in the range?
My go-to is the Lavender Hydrating Therapy Mask. Once a week there is nothing better than a relaxing bath, cup of lemongrass tea and a hair mask to help soothe and revive tired hair!
Do you have any tips and tricks for keeping your hair luscious and healthy all year round?
A huge part of healthy hair starts within, so every day I fill my body with nourishing food and I also take collagen regularly to improve my hair strength as well as my skin. I tailor treatments to my schedule as well as the season. In summer I find that the Rose & Geranium Radiance Remedy keeps my hair soft and looking shiny, especially post beach swims. In winter I love the Argan & Safflower Nourishing range for hydration. The Argan & Safflower Dry Hair Nourishing Potion is great for on the go.
What’s your morning routine?
I like to start the morning very much the same way every day - I truly believe it’s what sets us up for a successful day. Dom is my human alarm at 6am.. we have cuddles in bed then go downstairs to take Simba out for a walk. I use this time to breathe deeply, get fresh air in my lungs and take a moment to be thankful. I drink a big glass of water with fresh lemon followed by my collagen coffee then smoothie! I get the kids fed and dressed, then head upstairs for a relaxing shower!
What’s your favourite quote?
If we don’t make time for our wellness we will be forced to make time for our illness.
What’s your go-to snack?
Cookie dough protein balls from my program, Body by Finch. I make a big batch at the start of the week and even freeze some for a frozen treat!
What’s the best life lesson you’ve received?
Patience in life and having gratitude for my blessings. My kids and husband Misha teach me this every day.
