The secret to great hair just might be washing it with a bottle of Coke
Some of our favorite things here at Hello Giggles are Pinterest beauty hacks and celebrity beauty secrets. So, when the two come together, it’s kind of the greatest thing ever. We’ve experimented with everything from avocado and honey facials to coconut oil makeup remover, and we can’t wait to try the latest hack that’s making the rounds: a Coca-Cola hair rinse. It comes well-recommended, too. Model and actress Suki Waterhouse swears by it!
“I rinse my hair with Coca-Cola sometimes,” Waterhouse told Us Weekly. “I don’t like my hair when it’s washed—it’s fine and limp—but Coca-Cola makes it tousled, like I’ve gone through the Amazon or something.”
We’re inclined to trust her—girl’s got amazing hair. But for definitive proof, we turn to beauty blogger Ellko. Once she heard that Suki Waterhouse swore by the Coke hack, she had to try it for herself.
Ellko’s hair is long and straight. She poured two bottles of Coke over her head, showered and blow-dried. And the results were pretty workable!
“It feels… not crunchy, but dry. Like, it does when you use a salt spray. Obviously there is some texture. My hair has some waves in it that it didn’t have before. And it’s fine by me!”
There you have it: If you’re looking for a new hair hack to try, go grab a bottle of Coke! It’ll leave you with a more textured, beachy bed-head look. Bonus points if you find a “Share a Coke with Suki” bottle.
“I’m excited about it. It’s different!” Ellko concludes. “And it’s cheap, because it’s Coke.”
