Oprah is not the only one who loves bread. Madelaine Petsch, known for playing Cheryl Blossom on Riverdale, believes bread can help you out when you’re in a bind. Case in point: on a recent vacation, Petsch needed to put her hair up. With no scrunchie in sight, she reached for the next best thing, a breadstick.
She ended up sharing the moment on Instagram Stories, where she wrote, "Can't find a hair tie? Use a breadstick." She also decided to use the breadstick appropriately, setting her hair in a tasteful bun. A while later, Petsch shared a selfie from a Prada event, showing that she traded the bun for a braid. One can only assume she had gotten hungry on her way there.
Of course, the benefits of bread for your hair go beyond simply serving as an accessory when you’re in a pinch. Bread contains important carbohydrates, which are essential for healthy hair. If your diet lacks complex carbohydrates, your body may begin converting stored proteins, like a muscle, into energy. This can take a toll on your kidneys and liver, causing various problems, including hair loss.
Petsch’s love of all beauty/bread trends runs deep. She also includes in her beauty regime Bioré® Baking Soda Acne Cleansing Foam, which cleans with a gentle foam to clear and prevent acne without over-drying. “I triple-cleanse,” Petsch says. “You’d be surprised. One wash does not get all the makeup off. I dare you to wash your face one time tonight, then try to use a white tissue—put some liquid on it and wipe it off—and see how much makeup is still left on there. It’s disturbing.”
As for Petsch’s favorite bread, she loves pumpkin bread but only if it’s vegan. “Being vegan keeps my body fueled and running smoothly,” Madelaine told People. She says she's been "plant-based" her whole life. She swears by an energizing, “clean, non-processed food diet,” which averages 1,700 calories a day.
Her diet includes oats made with organic oats, almond milk, chia seeds, cacao nibs, and raspberries in the morning, an apple with almond butter and scoop of Macro Greens powder with water as a mid-morning snack, a spinach salad topped with cranberries, walnuts, chickpeas, brown rice and green goddess dressing for lunch, an afternoon NuGo Slim Crunchy Peanut Butter Vegan Protein Bar, and a broccoli “steak” with vegan cheddar "cheese" with a side of brown rice and black beans for dinner.
She also stays very hydrated, drinking 11 to 13 500 ml-bottles of water a day. But wait, no bread?
