We can always count on Zendaya to give us some real talk, especially when it comes to beauty. The 20-year-old actress has been an open book about her struggle to embrace her natural curls after a lifetime of a love-hate relationship. And if her latest Instagram is any indication, the starโ€™s commitment to learning to love her natural look has truly paid off โ€” and it looks damn good.

โ€œWhen you’ve spent the past however many years growing your damaged hair back, avoiding heat, wearing wigs and trying every natural product in the world and you finally see a little curl pattern comin back…#yeslawwwwd,โ€ Zendaya captioned the mirror selfie, which shows her curls looking lush, voluminous, and thoroughly envy-inducing. But if you still have questions about she got there โ€” or what she did in between โ€” let this new video from her official website shed some light on the subject.

The catโ€™s out of the bag: When Zendaya isnโ€™t wearing wigs, weaves, or extensions (which, as sheโ€™ll tell you, are all different things) to change up her vibe, sheโ€™s using water to keep things natural. Yep, her shortcut to getting those springy curls is just plain old H2O. Howโ€™s that for a beauty secret?
