Sophia Bush: I want wacky hair!

Sophia Bush dubs coconut oil as a "great life hack".

The 32-year-old actress has always played it relatively safe with her tresses and currently boasts brown locks with blonde highlights.

But if she could experiment, Sophia would opt for a more vibrant look.

"I definitely have ADD (attention deficit disorder) when it comes to my hair - I always want to dye it something wacky," she laughed to People. "The only reason it hasn't been pastel is because if I did it during the season, I'd probably get fired."

Sophia is referring to her current TV series Chicago P.D., in which she plays Erin Lindsay. Her make-up is minimal on the programme as her detective alter ego solves crimes following a drug addiction as a teenager.

In real life Sophia has one particular beauty must-have which she uses on various areas.

"Coconut oil is a great life hack," she enthused. "It's so good for your skin. It's the best hair moisturiser. It's a great substitute for shaving cream. Keep a jar in the kitchen to cook with and a jar in the shower for all the other things."

It seems she's a fan of using oils in her beauty regime, as earlier this year she revealed she uses an oil wash to take make-up off and dubs the product as a "game changer".

She also shared another life hack during her interview with, explaining that she leaves her hair wet after washing it in the morning then gets on with the rest of her routine so it dries as she keeps herself busy.

"By the time I’m turning my attention back to my hair it’s almost dry. I’ll do a quick blast with a blow dryer, a little heat styling if I need it," she added.
