Whether she’s at work or play, Heidi Klum’s signature blonde locks are always styled with each and every strand perfectly in place. Perhaps she has a particular hair care secret to thank.

On an Instagram story Q&A session earlier this week, one of Klum’s 11.8 million followers inquired whether or not she washes her hair every day—and the SI Swimsuit model’s response was somewhat surprising.

“I wash my hair twice a day,” Klum stated. “I wash my hair every morning, and I wash my hair every night before I go to bed.”

While many hair gurus have convinced us in recent years that washing your hair less frequently is the key to training your hair to be less greasy, it seems that Klum has taken the complete opposite approach.

Another fan used the opportunity to ask Klum if she’d ever consider going back to a bob haircut again, which she rocked circa 2010. “Would look great,” the user subtly encouraged.

“I also think it would look good, but my husband [Tokio Hotel guitarist Tom Kaulitz] loves long hair on me, so for him, I will keep it long,” the 1998 SI Swimsuit Issue cover star said.

Lately, Klum has been wearing her hair in a mid-length shaggy cut, complete with her signature eyebrow-skimming fringe.
