While she might be a makeup mogul now, where Selena Gomez tends to make beauty headlines is her hair. She didn’t land a Pantene deal a few years back for nothing. From trendy curtain bangs to a vintage shag, the singer isn’t afraid to mix it up—and she looks incredible every time.
From the looks of her Instagram though, she’s been keeping things constant since the pandemic started. In most of her photos her hair is her natural deep brown, and she’s rocking her waves. Perhaps, like many of us working from home, she’s been taking this downtime to get her hair in tip-top condition.
Recently on her Instagram story she gave her followers some insight on the product she’s been using to keep her hair looking and feeling great. “My hair has been feeling so healthy because of my girls @incommon” she wrote on the slide, accompanying a photo of her holding a bottle of In Common’s Magic Myst.
The brand was created by celebrity hairstylists Nikki Lee and Riawna Capri and is beloved by celebrities like Hilary Duff and Emma Roberts. The brand calls the Magic Myst “vitamins for your hair,” and it’s basically an all-in-one product that “enhances, strengthens, and restores your hair’s unique balance with repair and hydration.” It seals the cuticle to repair and prevent damage, and can be used as a detangler, heat protector, or curl enhancer.
This isn’t the first time Selena Gomez has lifted the curtain behind her hair routine. In 2016, the singer told Vogue about her dedication to deep conditioning treatments. “One of the most important things for me is my hair,” she said. “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 conditioner on overnight sometimes—I’ll wrap it up and let it sit.”
She also revealed that she was “addicted” to Pantene’s Air Spray. “There’s no alcohol in it, so I literally just coat my hair in it before I go on stage,” she said. “I do my dramatic hair flip, and I just coat it. It doesn’t feel like it’s damaging my hair, I can tell.”
