As you may have heard, Blake Lively just recently gave birth to her baby with husband Ryan Reynolds. I just found out today it’s a little girl… and you can only imagine how gorgeous she will be (hello, genetic lottery!). Aside from Blake’s impeccable style (she never seems to put a Louboutin-clad foot wrong!) and sweet girl-next-door persona, it’s her ethereal beauty that often always captures my attention.
I’ve done a little digging and discovered her favorite beauty products and all the Blake Lively hair secrets you need to know…
Blake travels a lot and between all the flights and humidity in different locations, she’s explained her hair can get kind of frizzy and big. So for smooth, shiny hair she swears by regularly using a nourishing hair mask. Her go-to? Blake revealed it’s Kerastase Reflection Chroma Captive Hair Masque. She doesn’t rinse it completely from her hair and then once her hair is almost dry, she puts it up into a high ballerina bun.
Before shampooing, she also adds extra virgin coconut oil to the ends. Blake explained that her mom taught her when you shampoo you’re only trying to remove oil from the roots, not the ends. However, when you shampoo the ends you’re damaging them and it’s really drying. To prevent this, before showering she recommends applying coconut oil on the ends.
Want to know her go-to look for perfect evening hair? Blake said it’s actually a daytime hair look that’s super versatile. Simply slick back your hair in a tight ponytail, then take random chunks, braiding and twisting them.
Finally, it’s not hair related, but I think every gal needs a signature scent! I’m always intrigued to know what a woman identifies as her go-to fragrance and for Blake, it’s all about Gucci Première perfume – she said she wears it everywhere (even just at home in her pajamas).
I’d love to know, have you used any of Blake’s favorite beauty products? Are you keen to try some of her tips? I will definitely be doing this coconut oil before shampooing (such a good idea) and trying that Kerastase Reflection Hair Masque and this Skin Perfection Gel looks fantastic!
