Minnie Driver's Easy, Natural, and Affordable Secret for Keeping Her Curls Soft and Supple

You don't have to drop big bucks to have beautifully bouncy curls that behave

Driver's frizz-free, perfectly coiled curls were on display at last week's premiere of "Red Carpet Trail"
Minnie Driver is one of very few Hollywood women to have always worn her curls with pride (*cough Nicole Kidman, *cough Jennifer Aniston, et. al.)

The "About a Boy" star, 44, who's British but, like Rihanna, was raised on Barbados, has sidestepped the unwritten "it has to be straight" Hollywood hair mantra for her entire career, preferring to go with what nature gave her rather than wrestle it into submission.

Sure, but lots of people (myself included) have curly hair that never seems to look anywhere near as frizz-free, healthy and "un-thirsty" as does Driver's.

And, while the Oscar nominee may, like many of us, have bathroom cabinets overflowing with paychecks' worth of curly hair products, the one she swears by isn't even found in the hair care aisle. It's coconut oil.

"Every two weeks, I cover my head in coconut oil and I leave it on the whole day, the mom to 5-year-old (similarly curly-headed) Henry told InStyle. "I just put my hair up and wear a cap or I pin it all in, [then] when I wash it out that evening, it's left my hair so soft -- there's just nothing I've found that's better. My hair drinks it all up."

Since, like most of us, Driver can't go through every day with oil-drenched, pinned up hair, she does have a favorite line of products: Ouidad.

"They're specifically for curly hair, and they are the best products I've ever found," Driver gushes. "The Define and Shine Gel Cream is magical -- it has no silicone or buildup, it's just brilliant."
