From Women’s Health
ICYMI, actress Gal Gadot, 35, has pretty darn amazing hair. She rocks luxurious waves in the DC comics-inspired Wonder Woman movies, and her sleek strands make a statement whether she’s on the red carpet or off-duty on the ‘gram. If you’re wondering how Gal maintains such a healthy, shiny head of hair , you’re definitely not alone. That’s why Women’s Health rounded up all of the actress’s hair tips just for you.
To be real, Gal Gadot’s hair routine isn’t exactly low maintenance: “I think I do too much with my hair,” Gadot told Marie Claire UK in 2016. The reason? She uses lots of products and rarely leaves her hair to its own devices. The good news is that most of the items she uses can be found online or at your local drugstore.
“Drugstore shopping gives you the opportunity to try new products without breaking the bank,” explained Mark Townsend, Gal’s go-to hairstylist, in an interview with Today. “The biggest differences in drugstore hair products versus luxury hair products is packaging and fragrance. Luxury lines spend much more money on packaging and fragrance, which is why they are so expensive,” the stylist said.
So, if you’re looking to learn all about Gal Gadot’s (pretty accessible!) haircare routine, you’ve come to the right place. Read on for five of Gal’s favorite haircare tips and tricks. Trust us: Your split ends will thank you.
Gal lets her hair air dry.
Yes, there are tons of cool hair dryers and heated tools on the market nowadays, but that doesn’t stop Gal from letting her hair air dry. “People keep telling me: Don’t wash your hair every day—it’s not good for you,” Gal said in a 2015 interview with Vogue. “I wash my hair every day. But I let it dry naturally.” Whether or not you wash your hair every day is up to you but, like Gal, if you want to give your hair extra love, skip out on the heat when you can and go for air drying instead.
She loves this strengthening hair serum.
And while Gal allows her hair to air dry when she can, that doesn’t mean she skimps out on protective products. “I use Kérastase ampoules day and night,” Gal told Vogue. “Especially when I travel because I get dehydrated and they make the root of the hair stronger.” If you’re thinking of snagging these for yourself, go for it. All you need to do is dab the drops at your roots and then work them in with your fingers for stronger, healthier hair.
Extra gentle shampoo is a must.
“For my hair, I love Shiseido Extra Gentle Shampoo,” Gal told Harper’s Bazaar UK in a 2016 interview. Since she washes daily, it’s important that her cleansing products don’t strip all of the natural oils from her scalp. She’s also a fan of washing her hair with other brands, too. “I like to keep it really clean with Dr. Fischer shampoos,” Gal said in a 2016 interview with Marie Claire UK. “It’s an Israeli brand, very simple, and I love the natural scent.” While some of Gal’s specific favs are hard to find in the U.S., you can still grab some of her beloved brands to try for yourself.
Gal’s hairstylist loves drugstore products.
As noted above, the actress’s stylist Mark Townsend is a big fan of using drugstore products on Gal’s hair. One of his favorites? Dove’s Refresh and Care Dry Shampoo. “This is like having five products in one bottle,” Townsend, a spokesperson for the brand, told Today. “It’s amazing at refreshing the hair and scalp in-between traditional washes, and I spray it on the roots while back combing to really lock in the lift and volume. I always spray it throughout the hair after styling for long-lasting texture.” Are you taking notes? To revamp your greasy couple-days-old hair, get your hands on a dry shampoo from this affordable line, ASAP.
She keeps her hair up when she can.
Gal’s a simple girl when it comes to styling her hair, even if it’s for her red carpet looks. “I like to wear my hair up,” Gal told InStyle in 2017. “It’s very practical and I don’t need to mess with it. Red lips and that’s it!” Ah yes, we love an easy updo for both spotlight moments and for relaxing at home.
Okay, now that you know all of Gal Gadot’s haircare tips and tricks, it’s time to head to the drugstore, grab a few products, and try them out in your own routine! Fingers crossed you end up with voluminous, shiny hair just like the actress herself.
