James Corden Says He Washes His Hair Every Two Months

James Corden Says He Washes His Hair Every Two Months

James Corden has revealed he only washes his hair ‘every two months’, saying he also tends to be in the shower for no more than a few minutes each time.

Some of us find we have to make sure our locks are washed every single day if we don't want to end up channelling the slicked-back look of Harry Potter baddie Draco Malfoy.

Some celebs, meanwhile, seem fairly content to just leave things au naturel – with Jake Gyllenhaal making headlines when he said he found bathing to be 'less necessary' sometimes, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher recently revealing they only wash their kids if they see 'dirt on them', and Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard saying they simply 'wait for the stink' before bathing their children.

And it turns out Corden is more than happy to go several weeks without running some shampoo through his hair, having spoken about own hygiene habits on The Late Late Show during a discussion about residents in LA being asked to cut their shower time amid water shortages. 


The 43-year-old said: “I’m in and out in three or four minutes. I use soap but I don’t wash my hair. I wash it every two months. 

“That is a true story. I do not think we are nasty.” 


In LA, people are being asked to cut their time in the shower by four minutes to help tackle water shortages in the area, with the average time for residents currently 10 minutes. 

Upon hearing how long some people take, Corden said: “You are joking me... What?

"If that is the average that means there are people in there for 20 minutes? Oh my God!’’ 

When a member of his production team admitted she showered for 10 minutes, he asked: “What are you doing for 10 minutes? 


“How long does it take? I am trying to think what I would do in there for 10 minutes?’”

Corden recently revealed he would be leaving The Late Late Show after seven years behind the desk, saying he feels ‘immensely proud’ of what he’s achieved. 

In a monologue to his audience, Corden said working on the show had been beyond his 'wildest, wildest dreams'. 


He continued: "When I started this journey, it was always going to be just that. It was going to be a journey, an adventure. I never saw it as my final destination, you know? 

"And I never want this show to overstay its welcome in any way. I always want to love making it. And I really think in a year from now that will be a good time to move on and see what else might be out there." 

He added: "We are all determined to make this the best year we have ever had making this show. We are going to go out with a bang. 

"There is going to be Carpools, and Crosswalks, and sketches and other surprises. 


"And there will be tears. There will be so many tears. 'Cause this has been the hardest decision I've ever had to make, it really has. I've never taken this job for granted. Ever. Not once. And…  the fact that you watch us at home. Or you watch us online. Wherever you are, all over the world. The fact that we get to try and entertain you and spend time with you is an absolute privilege for me and every single person who makes this show."
