Donald Trump is finally coming clean on one of the more enduring follicular mysteries of the modern age: his hair.

In an interview with Rolling Stone's Erik Hedegaard, the real estate tycoon-turned-reality star, who is considering a 2012 presidential run, offered a lengthy explanation for how exactly it is that his hair comes to look the way it does everyday.

"OK, what I do is, wash it with Head and Shoulders. I don't dry it, though. I let it dry by itself. It takes about an hour," Trump said matter-of-factly.

In the meantime, he reads the papers and watches TV, counting Fox News and "Morning Joe," among his favorites.

"I then comb my hair. Yes, I use a comb," Trump explained. "Do I comb it forward? No, I don't comb it forward."

Pushing the "flying wing of his hair back," Hedegaard wrote, the reality star revealed his hairline, which has been the subject of speculation for years.

"I actually don't have a bad hairline," he declared. "When you think about it, it's not bad. I mean, I get a lot of credit for comb-overs. But it's not really a comb-over. It's sort of a little bit forward and back. I've combed it the same way for years. Same thing, every time."
