Celebrities are busy people. It is a part of their life to jet-set around the globe, work for longer hours under spotlights, camera and walk in the red carpet with a purpose to bring entertainment to people. But with all their hectic schedule and lack of time for themselves, they still managed to have their hair looking healthy and perfect.
How are they able to do that? Check out the hair hacks used by celebrities.
Sienna Miller – Tomato Ketchup
Believe it or not, Sienna Miller applied tomato ketchup on her hair under heat for almost a year and a half. This is to restore her hair to normal condition after she dyed her hair red (resulted to pink hair) and brown (resulted to green hair).
How Can Tomato Help?
Sienna Miller is a natural blonde and some hair dyes contain copper sulphate which could change the color of the hair to green or reddish color. In the color spectrum, red and green are two opposite colors and Tomato can help neutralize the copper sulphate’s color.
Warning: It doesn’t always work.
Suki Waterhouse – Coca Cola
Suki doesn’t want her hair to look limp but who would have thought that this famous model-actress uses a Coca Cola to make her hair tousled? Yes, you read it right; Suki is using this popular beverage for her hair.
How Can Coca Cola Help?
The sugar from this drink coats the hair and its residue will give the hair body and volume which will give the hair a nicely tousled look.
Warning: It can cause stickiness and not recommended for sensitive scalp.
Fergie – Olive Oil
Olive oil works great for this singer, songwriter’s hair. Olive oil is a must have for Fergie, especially during tours. She can manage to change hairstyles and put extensions in between songs fast because of this kitchen product. She also loves how it can make her hair feel like silk after she washes it off.
How Can Olive Oil Help?

Zoe Saldana – Mayonnaise
Zoe loves to try out several natural remedies to see what really works and which can really bring benefits to the skin and hair. And she still applies mayonnaise on her hair to moisturize and condition it.
How Can Mayonnaise Help?
