“[My mom] used to put oil or mayonnaise on the bottom half of her hair before she would shower. That way, when she would shampoo, the soap wouldn’t strip the bottom of the hair and dry it out, making it brittle.”

Awesome, right?

We’ve known for years that mayo or oil can be used for a variety of things – like softening cuticles pre-manicure and soothing dry skin – but we never expected an A-lister’s top tip would be so simple.

It’s the latest in a series of moments that have propelled Blake to the top of everyone’s “girl crush” lists. Not only is she nailing the whole maternity style thing, she’s also become a bonafide editrix with the launch of her lifestyle website, Preserve. It’s no wonder Ryan Reynolds can’t seem to keep his hands or eyes off her when they’re out in public.

The Gossip Girl star is clearly a catch – with a cool coiffure at that.
