Whether she’s wearing her hair up or down, in a bun or slicked back, or even rocking those curls, Jennifer Lopez can do no wrong. So what’s the secret to Lopez’s healthy and shiny locks?
Earlier this year, Hers, a woman-focused well-being brand that offers affordable access to prescription products, shared an Instagram post showing the 50-year-old actress and singer applying the brand’s hair serum to her roots.
"When I was coming up, I didn't know how to take proper care of my hair when I first started working in television and film — I had to learn about minoxidil from my hairstylist! And I’ve been using it ever since,” Lopez said.
At just $20, Hers’s 2% Minoxidil Topical Solution is an affordable product that’s said to deliver a deep conditioning boost to promote length and strength to thinning hair. Minoxidil is a highly effective medication specifically used to prevent female hair loss. It is FDA-approved, and has one of the best safety track records of any hair loss medication, so you can feel safe using it.
For the best results, it’s recommended to apply one ml directly to the scalp twice a day.

According to the Canadian Dermatology Associaton, by the age of 40, approximately 40 per cent of women will have some degree of hair loss ranging from slight thinning to severe female pattern baldness. Hair loss can occur for a variety of reasons, from stress and iron-deficient anaemia to hormonal fluctuations, which can worsen as you age. It can also be caused by damaging hairstyles and products, like texture sprays, weaves and tight braids and ponytails.
J.Lo partnered with Hers in late 2019, while fiancé Alex Rodriguez teamed up the male-focused sibling brand Hims.
“Alex and I are so excited to partner with a company that makes self-care so easy and effective,” said Lopez at the time. “Hims & Hers give people affordable access to high-quality products and doctors, to help you take better care of yourself. And it's all on your time, no matter who you are or where you're from. Because we believe self-care is a right, not a privilege, and everyone deserves to look and feel their best."
Dealing with hair loss can be a challenging experience. In case you’re not willing to go the J.Lo route, deep conditioning solutions like The Ordinary’s Multi-Peptide Serum for Hair Density and castor oil maintain the ultimate solution for fans everywhere.
