I Tried Selena Gomez’s Hair Routine and Here’s What Happened
From winning the Woman of the Year award, producing award-winning TV series, 13 Reasons Why, to her hit single Wolves and advocacy for Lupis – there are many reasons to love Selena Gomez. Beauty and brains, there is no doubt that this Hollywood starlet is a woman we look up to. While not all of us can be Selena, there is one this we can try to emulate—her gorgeous hair.
To try to recreate the magic that is Selena’s hair, we scraped the internet for every Selena hair-related article we could find, and collected the best tips, tricks, and styles this beauty uses. Watch the video below to see how we fared with Selena Gomez’s hair routine.
USE A LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER FOR EXTRA SHINE
We all know that Selena has an eternally beautiful mane, but what’s her secret to the shine? To achieve the healthy sheen Selena’s hair is known for takes a lot of TLC. From hair masks to oils, it is all about giving your hair the nutrients it craves. Here’s what she had to say in a Vogue interview:
“One of the most important things for me is my hair. I’ve always been about my hair, and I love that my mom and my nana taught me how to take care of it myself. It goes through a lot every day, but I try to keep it healthy. I have to admit; it can get a little dead on the ends. I like to leave the conditioner on overnight sometimes—I’ll wrap it up and let it sit.”
We tried this out ourselves with a natural leave-in condition and a simple french braid for some added texture. Simply spritz a couple of drops of the leave-in conditioner and disperse throughout the ends. Then follow this tutorial on creating the perfect French braid. If you’re leaving this treatment in overnight, we recommend using a scrunchy to avoid any weird creases on the braid.
HAIR EXTENSIONS FOR RED CARPET VOLUME
Ever wonder how Selena can change up her look so quickly? In the last couple of months alone, Selena has sported everything from short bleach blonde locks to long, dark, glamorous waves. Her trick to these seemingly overnight transformations? Hair extensions! Although some celebrities are more open about it than others, hair extensions are an amazing way to add volume, length, and color to transform your hair in just minutes—nothing to be ashamed of. In an interview with Cosmopolitan, celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin said:
“I’m a really big advocate of stopping extension shaming, it’s nothing to be embarrassed about, and I think more women should talk openly about it.”
To recreate Selena Gomez’s infamous voluminous red-carpet waves, we added a full set of Luxy Hair extensions and then using a curling wand to add some extra texture.
