Like most Brazilian beauties we know, Adriana Lima is basically a living, breathing glossary of top-notch hair, skin, and wellness tips. And goodness, is she prolific: We've already mentally tucked away gems like using coconut water on your skin for a hydrated glow, working out as a hair growth strategy and adding a little something to your coffee to deter cravings—and still, the hacks keep on coming.

Case in point: Lima detailed her entire beauty routine for Into the Gloss today, and one of the standout elements of her hair regimen involves Instagram's favorite fruit (yes, it's a fruit): the avocado.

"Avocado? For shiny hair? Groundbreaking," you're saying with Miranda Priestly disdain. But hear her out, because the hack goes beyond just smothering the good stuff on your locks and calling it a day. "In Brazil, we'd take our conditioner or hair mask and mix it with avocado and put that in our hair for a treatment, she explains. "It leaves your hair super shiny. I'm not joking!"

A DIY way to soup up your existing hair products? Genius, though we're not surprised by the brilliance of it—Lima's track record speaks for itself.
