Ever wonder what goes on behind the closed door of Eva Mendes‘ and Ryan Gosling’s bedroom? Turns out, there’s lots of coconut oil—in her hair at least.

In a recent interview with Byrdie, Mendes spilled all of her beauty secrets, from her genius makeup applying tricks (like never skipping blush on the nose) to her secret behind that shiny, bouncy hair (seriously, do you see that volume?).

The actress’ easy all-natural hair hack? Overnight coconut oil.

“I’m a big fan of coconut oil and using it as a treatment,” Mendes explains. “I’ll just leave it in my hair and put a shower cap on it and sleep with it overnight. I go after that beachy look, but obviously, that can leave your hair feeling unhealthy, so I really like this coconut oil trick.”

For first-timers, she suggests trying it on your ends first to see the benefits and then go from there. Using coconut oil as a beauty product isn’t exactly a new technique, but hey, if it helped her land the ultimate Hollywood dreamboat—sign us up.

Now that you’ve got your hair Gosling-approved, try out these other all-natural beauty products for your glowy-est summer yet and then complete your beachy look with these stylish, sporty swimsuits.
