    Drew Barrymore is one of those celebs who never shy away from sharing her favorite products with fans — and her latest beauty product reveal is a must-have for your hair.

    The actress shared the secret to her stunning locks in a photo posted recently on instagram during the filming of the Drew Barrymore show. In the photo, she stands alongside the founder of JVN, Jonathan Van Ness, holding JVN Complete Instant Recovery Leave-In Serum and a piece of toast. In the caption, she writes: You won’t believe how amazing this JVN Complete Instant Recovery Serum is.

    And if you’re wondering what the burnt piece of toast has to do with anything, Barrymore also provides an explanation. “We used the @cookwithbeautiful toaster and popped in that piece of toast 🍞 with that magic heat protector ONLY on one area… and it DID NOT BURN!

    Van Ness prepped and styled Barrymore’s hair using products from her brand during the show. But before giving him a blowout, he gave Barrymore a quick demonstration using a piece of bread, to show him why a heat shield is needed before using hot tools. After applying the leave-in serum to a section of the loaf, he popped it in a toaster for a few seconds, and the side of the loaf without any product was completely burned off, proving how well the product works.

    “Oh my god…that’s why we use heat shield,” Van Ness said, while holding the piece of burnt toast. “That’s what happens to your hair if you don’t use heat protectant,” he added.

    The leave-in serum is formulated with a slew of nourishing ingredients that work to repair and boost hair’s internal strength. Its key ingredients include hemisqualane, charged lemon protein, and niacinamide, which all work together to reduce damage and strengthen cuticles from the inside and out.

    Niacinamide (also known as nicotinamide) is a form of vitamin B3. “This is also called niacin, which is an essential nutrient for the development and functioning of cells in your body,” said Annie Gonzalez, MDboard-certified dermatologist at Riverchase Dermatology in Miami, in a previous interview for Prevention. B complex vitamins are also needed to maintain healthy skin and hair and to help the nervous system function properly.

    The leave-in formula is also vegan, color-safe, and silicone-free, making it safe to use on all hair types, according to the Brand.

    Sephora customers also love the hair serum, giving it a 4.4-star rating and tons of rave reviews.

    “I LOVEEEEEEE!!!! My hair texture is maybe 3c/4a. This serum works great on my hair,” wrote one satisfied customer. “I use it after washing and conditioning to style a little my curls for a wash and look. I use it instead of leave-in conditioner and it leaves your hair super soft and silky!”

    “This is amazing!! I have long hair and I apply a small amount to wet hair and comb it out,” another reviewer added. “My hair feels so soft and less tangled. Usually my hair is dry the second day after a wash and it’s not when using this serum. Highly recommend!”

    If the hair serum worked enough to save one side of a slice of bread from burning — and impress so many Sephora shoppers — it’s safe to say it’s the real deal. Shop the product and some of Barrymore’s other favorite beauty picks below.
