Our favorite part of celebrity interviews is when they spill their beauty secrets, especially when those secrets involve DIYing at-home hair remedies on the cheap. Celebs, they’re just like us! In a recent interview with Byrdie, Zoe Saldana let us in on one of her favorite little tricks for natural highlights, and it’s probably in your liquor cabinet. It’s…RUM! Zoe is a woman after our own hearts!

We’ve toyed with the idea of putting alcohol in our hair before; beer, in particular, is famous for giving you bouncy, shiny hair — and goodness knows that when it comes to hair color inspo, champagne just can’t be beat! But rum just makes sense, you know? Especially given Zoe’s Dominican background!

Zoe tells Byrdie:

Welp, we were already planning on stocking up on some rum for our delicious summer beverages, so we might as well just sprinkle some in our hair while we lay out by the pool!

Zoe always looks fierce and her hair is continually on point, so we will definitely be taking her tip to heart.

Have you ever put an alcoholic beverage in your hair?

It really works when it comes to lightening your hair and softening it up! Just remember that alcohol can be drying, so after you’ve laid out make sure you wash it out thoroughly and use a deep conditioner to keep those ends healthy. You can even find a special deep conditioner that is special for blonde hair to keep those fresh highlights looking bright and beautiful!
