It's an understatement to say we're big fans of Connie Britton. She's responsible for bringing two of the best fictional Southern women to life on TV, is incredibly devoted to her anti-poverty work with the United Nations, and, not to mention, looks amazing while doing it all. And you don't watch Connie on TV for more than a few minutes without marveling at her stunning hair. Her long, thick strawberry-blond hair is the stuff of Hollywood and Nashville legends—there's even a Twitter account and a hashtag (#conniebrittonshair) devoted to her envious locks.

Naturally, any woman with hair of her own would be curious to know Connie's secret. We did some digging to see what secrets from her hair-care routine she's spilled over the years, and believe it or not, Connie is surprised by all the attention her hair gets, which can only be true when you actually aren't trying that hard.

This Connie hair fact seems true, considering she told Good Housekeeping she "actually neglects it." The hair gods undoubtedly blessed Connie: She said she doesn't wear extensions, and her product routine is relatively simple.

Since she knows her hair is on the dry side and doesn't get greasy very easily, Connie only washes her hair twice a week or so. When she does, she's a fan of shampoos and conditioners from Kerastase and Wen. She swears by a leave-in conditioner from Privé, which she uses after washing her hair to keep it hydrated.

The one thing that isn't all-natural about her hair is its gorgeous color. Connie says her hair is naturally a "mousey brown," and she's been wearing some version of her current red for a long time. It certainly is an excellent match for her skin tone.

Take heart if you're hopeful that any of Connie's hair secrets could work magic on your own locks. Before she was Tami Taylor or Rayna Jaymes, Connie Britton didn't have her signature long auburn waves. In this photo from college, Connie has a classic 80s close-crop haircut that is adorably sweet on the college co-ed but far from her now well-known glamorous waves. Sometimes it just takes some time to figure out what works for you.
