Eva Mendes could no doubt afford the priciest haircuts, but she still hits up Supercuts from time to time. Not only that, she broadcast her appreciation for the mall chain to her Instagram followers.

Mendes posted a photo of herself draped in a Supercuts cape with fluorescent lighting overhead.

"Ok this is a terrible angle but thought you guys would like to know that yea, I stop into @supercuts every once in awhile," she wrote. "Y que?!" ("Y que" translates to "So what?!")

The whole thing might seem staged, but Supercuts clarified on Twitter that her post was "#NotAnAd". (Related: Eva Mendes Shares the Fitness and Beauty Tips That Keep Her Looking So Damn Glowy)

An even cheaper option, coconut oil is another of Mendes' favorites. "I'll just leave it in my hair and put a shower cap on it and sleep with it overnight," she told Byrdie. "I stay away from the scalp; it's not so much a scalp thing for me, because I tend to like a drier texture with my everyday hair. I go after that beachy look, but obviously, that can leave your hair feeling unhealthy, so I really like this coconut oil trick." She's totally on to something: Coconut oil has conditioning properties that can make hair more flexible and resistant to breakage. (See: 5 Natural Ingredients That Can Work Wonders On Your Hair)

Dry Shampoo (Buy It, $7,, telling ABC News that it's a "great product and so inexpensive!" Another one of her tricks: She relies on scarves as a solution for bad hair days.
