Salma Hayek is sharing her brilliant beauty hacks.

In an Instagram Reel posted Feb. 28, the actress, 57, gave fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse of her getting-ready routine.

“We don’t gatekeep hair tips here,” Hayek wrote on Instagram, with a video of her DIY trick for concealing gray hair.

“Look at all this white hair,” Hayek begins the clip as she runs her fingers through her hair to show her grays.

“So, what is the secret? How can you cover it sometimes without having to dye it?”

Hayek then shares her at-home hack.

“So, when I am on my own, I just put mascara!”

The star — who’s wearing a robe that repeatedly opens, causing her to have to close it on a number of occasions and also censor her video — then pulls out a tube.

“Just go like this,” she says as she demonstrates swiping the wand through her hairline, “and all the little rebellious ones that stick up, they not only go black but they stay flat.”

Hayek then adds that she’s got another secret up her sleeve, courtesy of her hair pro.

“But today because we have an amazing hairdresser working with us who’s going to show us a different trick.”

Hairstylist Miguel Martin Perez mists a root cover-up spray on the star’s hair and in seconds her grays are black again.

“See, I don’t have to be [dyeing] it every three weeks,” Hayek says.

The star also adds that she’s more than comfortable with her natural hair.

“I don’t mind it,” she says. “But sometimes the people you’re working with … they do mind.”

While it was unclear what Hayek was getting ready for, Martin posted the Reel on their Instagram page with a caption that teased more will be revealed.

“All about the secrets #besthairever @salmahayek #bigproject #bighairbigdreams coming soon.”
