Kim Kardashian-West’s Secret for Scoring Uber-Healthy Hair Is the One Thing You Never Thought to Try
You can accuse Kim Kardashian-West of a whole lot of things — being flashy AF, a bit catty from time to time (see her live Tweets from sister Kourtney’s birthday party), or making questionable marketing choices, for instance — but love her or hate her, the one thing you can never accuse Kim Kardashian-West of is having brittle, damaged looking hair. In fact, the 36-year-old’s locks are as shiny and sleek as they come.
If you guessed it was a wig, like sisters Kylie and now Kourtney are prone to wearing, think again: Her hair stylist admired her handiwork from the mother of two’s Ellen appearance on Instagram yesterday, saying, “MILF talk with @kimkardashian. Can we talk about how hot *fire emoji * she is RN?…(and yes that is Kim’s hair and yes it is THAT healthy.”
The hair guru gave Refinery 29 the scoop on what she’s doing to keep her client’s locks in such tip-top shape despite constant styling, and while some of it simply comes down to using top-notch products and tools (Atkin favors Ouai Hair Oil ($28) and the much-lauded Dyson Supersonic Dryer, which can be yours for the low, low price of $400), she’s also got a rather unique and genius tip we never would have thought of.
Instead of ingesting all those biotin-filled hair vitamins (the most powerful way to get a healthy hair boost, according to the celeb stylist), Atkin says she crushes a Ouai Dry Hair Supplement ($28) up for a homemade hair mask from time to time instead.
All you need to complete your mask are some egg whites to mix with the supplement — an avocado, olive oil, coconut oil, or beer will also do the trick.
From there, simply apply to the hair and leave on for the recommended time (Atkin says egg whites or beer should be left on clean damp hair for 30 minutes, then rinsed, while avocado is just 15 minutes and a wash). Oils can be left for 15-30, though they’ll likely require more than a single wash to get out.
Seriously? That’s it? Why didn’t we think of this?
