Jason Momoa is famously hot. He was the hottest guy on the first season of Game of Thrones, even with all the eyeliner and my love for Richard Madden. (House of the Dragon is really lacking in that regard.) He has a great bod, a great face, and a great head of hair. But the latter is no more. Jason shaved off his long, luxurious locks and documented the change on Instagram. But he wasn’t just doing it for the ‘gram — he did it for the environment. Specifically, to minimize his use of single-use plastics.
Jason Momoa is showing his love for the environment by shaving his head!
The Dune star, 43, took to Instagram on Monday and toasted “new beginnings” by getting his famous locks chopped off.
“Aloha, everyone,” he began in the video, before he added, “Hand me those braids.”
As he held two long pieces of cut braided hair, Momoa proceeded to talk as clippers made mulch of his shoulder-length hair.
“Shavin’ off the hair… doing it for…” he said before pointing to the newly shaved side of his head. “I’ve never even felt the wind right there!” he added.
“Doing it for single-use plastics,” Momoa continued. “I’m tired of using plastic bottles, we gotta stop, plastic forks, all that s—, goes into our land, goes into our ocean.
“I’m here in Hawaii right now, and just seeing things in our ocean, it’s just so sad. Please, anything you can do to eliminate single-use plastics in your lives. Help me, plastic bottles are ridiculous… we’re going to keep going — oh, man. Love you guys. Aloha.”
Even without his hair, Jason is and always will be hot. Like, of course he’s hot with a shaved head. He still has that face and bod and vibe. I see Jason’s point too. His long, beachy waves probably required a lot of maintenance. Guys with short hair can get away with just shampoo, but he definitely needed shampoo and conditioner, and probably a lot of the latter. Maybe with a buzzcut he can just use bar soap on his head now too? He’ll definitely still be showering because he did weigh in on that terrible discussion and he’s not one of those proudly dirty celebs. Single-use plastics are bad, but also hard to avoid completely. I admire him for making this commitment, though I couldn’t make it myself, which I’’ve said in many other posts about shaved heads. With my hair products, I do try to get the biggest bottles possible so that I’m using less bottles (and also wasting less money on expensive conditioner that my hair chugs). Good for Jason. He’s hot and he cares about the environment.
