“Well, there’s a brand of shampoo that I love called It’s a 10,” Paltrow told InStyle. “It really helps with frizz. … My hair is super frizzy. Why do you think I opened a blow-dry bar in my gym?”

Gigi Hadid

“I don’t wash my hair every day, which is what keeps it healthy because that way it doesn’t dry out. … For baby hairs, I have a face brush from Sephora that I spray with hair spray to push back anything leftover from when I pull it all into a ponytail, but I guess you could use a toothbrush,” Hadid told Into the Gloss.

Miranda Kerr

“It’s a combination of [things], like feeding my body from the inside, and I’ve been using Clear [hair products] for quite some time actually. I have noticed that it makes my hair strong and soft and lightweight at the same time, and that’s something for me that I need. I like it because I feel like it nourishes the scalp, and their whole concept has been that we’ve been looking at the wrong end of hair,” Kerr told The Huffington Post.

“My mom taught me this really great beauty tip. She used to put oil or mayonnaise on the bottom half of her hair before she would shower. That way, when she would shampoo, the soap wouldn’t strip the bottom of the hair and dry it out, making it brittle,” Lively told us.

“For my hair, I don’t wash it every day. We start out with a blowout on day one, then we go into a messier vibe the next day, and then we flatiron it and do a really sleek look on day three since that requires a little oil in the hair. Day four could be a slicked-back ponytail, and on the fifth day is when you wash it. That’s a little excessive, maybe,” Kardashian told Into the Gloss.

“Even if you have a professional doing your hair, if they don’t have a good head of hair to work with, there’s not much they can do,” Conrad told us. “Keeping your hair strong, taking vitamins, not overprocessing [it], and keeping your color [vibrant] are all so important. In the end, I think it’s just about maintaining your hair and keeping it healthy!”

“A main one that I’ve been learning a lot about recently is don’t be afraid to use oils on your hair. I can get very wild hair because it’s this beachy texture, so I’ve been using coconut oil,” Palmer told us.
