The most-followed person on Instagram Selena Gomez, all-around queen who slays on a daily basis, has been sharing some beauty secrets. You better believe because we have been listening.

Of course, we’d quite like her face and her incredibly body, but if we had to pick something? Her hair. Her thick, ravishing, bouncy hair. We call it shampoo-ad hair – and so do the folks at Pantene, who also thought her locks were lovely enough to give her a role as spokesmodel.

Speaking to Allure, Selena said her big hair care secret is skipping a few washes. She says:”I don’t wash my hair everyday, which may sound gross, but it’s actually really bad for my hair. Some of my best friends actually can’t go more than maybe two days without washing their hair, and for me, I give my mom and my dad all the credit, because I have thick hair, so it gets better the less I wash it.”

“By the third day, my hair actually holds pretty well. It just holds curls better, and it holds product better. It’s so strange, but it actually works. I just use a little dry shampoo, and I tease it to keep the volume up. Usually by day four is when I have to absolutely wash it.”

See.. Our Stars, they’re just like us! As for her favourite products, Selena name-checked Pantene’s Pro-V Hairspray and Smooth Serum with Argan Oil – we hope you’re taking notes now.

As for her beauty misery, Selena told Allure “My chin gets it the worst because I hold my microphone as close to me as I hardly can, because some of my music has softer tones to it. So the chin is always the first area that I treat. I usually put a mask on and a humidifier on my face after my show.”


Selena babes, even with a whole face full of spots, we compute you’d still be head-turningly beautiful.
