"Honestly I am a shy person," Ryan Reynold's wife told the mag, "My hair is a safety net for me, so I love to have it down and full and relaxed."

"Often you see people on the red carpet with tight updos, but that makes me feel stiff," the blonde added of her preferred hairstyle.

To achieve that "full and relaxed look," the Gossip Girl alum told the magazine she applies a deep conditioner hair mask (she prefers Kerastase Reflection Chroma Captive Hair Masque) to wet hair, doesn't rinse it completely from the ends, and then places her hair in a ballerina bun on the top of her head to let it dry.

The 26-year-old also credits applying extra virgin coconut oil to the ends of her hair before shampooing.

Despite having a minimalistic hair care routine, The Age of Adaline actress doesn't slack when it comes to fashion. In fact, she admits she's "not happy wearing sweats, because I love dressing up so much."

"I liken myself to a little girl having a tea party at the house all of the time," Blake told the mag. "I actually dress up more in my home than I do walking down the street just because it is so much fun to play dress up."
