It’s pretty rare to hear of an A-lister in Hollywood fessing up about having bad hair. For the most part, celebrities go on the record about how they take care of their hair, not how they ruin it.

But for Keira Knightley, coloring her hair for years was part of the job description. Only she didn’t realize that every time she assumed the role of a new character and a new hue, she was causing serious damage to her natural locks.

“I have dyed my hair virtually every color imaginable for different films,” the 31-year-old told InStyle UK. “It got so bad that my hair literally began to fall out of my head.”

For the past five years, Knightley has chosen wigs over dye, which she says, “Is the greatest thing that’s ever happened to my hair.”

Add the effects of pregnancy on the hair into the mix and Knightley, who has been rehabbing her hair, has now had to figure out a way to tame her naturally curly locks. “Since I’ve had the baby, it’s become 10 times thicker. So now I’ve finding quite a lot of dreadlocks. Tangle Teezer is the only thing that works for detangling my dreadlocks. It gets rid of the kinks without snagging my hair out.”
