I have always had thick, stick straight hair. I took its health for granted until it was damaged from a crazy curling iron shooting a movie that will go unnamed. And the clumps that fall out after having a baby—those did one over on me, too. I made a hard switch from seeing long hair as the easiest to put in a ponytail to having the best artists in the world using my hair as a sculptural tool.

ON HER BEST HAIR MEMORIES

Jen-Garner-Good-Hair

I have some killer hair memories—there was a black Oscar de la Renta at the Oscars that Adir (Abergel) did with a swoopy bang. There was a really simple wavy look in a white Gucci dress at the Golden Globes. But my favourite is when Adir has me ready for a day of work and my hair is a version of my own—but with more body, more texture and more life, in general.

THE SHAMPOO:

Virtue_Full_Shampoo

Virtue Full Shampoo, £36

Virtue was instantly a game changer. I had never had a product make such a difference so very quickly/my hair felt lifted and full. And the smell! It’s amazing. I alternate between the Full Shampoo and the Recovery Shampoo depending on what I need (they’re self-explanatory).

My favourite shampoo and conditioner, without a doubt - Virtue Full. Ok sometimes I like the Recovery and sometimes I use Full. But those two by Virtue Labs - best I’ve ever ever used. I know people say you should rinse when you’re done but I do not. No ma’am.

the conditioner:

Virtue_Full_Conditioner

Virtue Full Conditioner, £38

on cuts and colours

Adir Abergel or Chris McMillan cut my hair - I know - lucky me. Tracey Cunningham has coloured it forever. Unless there is something specific I’m getting ready to shoot, I just leave them to it - they know what I like. I’ve had some grey hairs show up this last year - there are probably way more than I even know, but Tracey quietly colours them. That’s ok, I’ve earned them, they’re welcome on my head.

the tool:

Harry_Josh_Ultra_Light_Pro_Dryer

Harry Josh Ultra Light Pro Dryer, $349

I use Harry Josh’s hair dryer and the STOTTS detangling brushes - we have them brushes all over the house. They’re not available in the UK though, so grab a few next time you’re stateside.

the supplement:

Vital_Proteins_Collagen_Peptides

vital proteins collagen peptides, £25

I’m not a huge supplement taker, but I stick two scoops of this into my morning smoothie. Unflavoured, it doesn’t alter the taste of my smoothie and I’ve definitely noticed a difference in the strength of my nails and hair.
