She features in the ad alongside Japanese TV presenter Sando Kondo, who is well known for her head of grey hair.

“In some way or other, these two may have taught us the importance of expressing our true selves,” Pantene posted on Instagram.

“In 2019, We hope many more women will take a step forward towards who they want to be.”

The adorable ad tells baby Chanco’s hair story, and how her mom, Mami Kano, loved her unusual hair and ignored comments from others.

“I’m so surprised by the reaction (to the video), but also very proud of the praises from many countries,” Mami said.

“I prefer to keep her hair long. In the future, I want to try some new arrangements, like braids.”
