Kim Kardashian West uses gorilla snot in her hair.

Long-time Kardashian hair stylist Jen Atkin has revealed the wonder "weapon" behind the 35-year-old's super sleek S-wave hair is the Mexican-made Moco de Gorilla, Gorilla Snot Gel.

The beauty expert - who has also tamed the manes of Chrissy Teigen, Katy Perry and Fantastic Four actress Jessica Alba - posted a hair styling tutorial video, including her recommendation of the unusual product, to her Instagram account.

She captioned the post: " Don't miss our "perfect blowout in a hurry" tutorial on @kimkardashian 's app! I show you how to use my secret weapon !! link in my bio (sic)"


According to the brand's website the beauty bargain, which is only $3, it is essential for sleeking flyaway hairs with "Gorilla Strength" and holding "anti-gravitational" updos.

Meanwhile, Jen - who is fast becoming an Instagram sensation - doesn't rely on snot to keep Khloe Kardashian's locks looking perfect.

One of my fave looks!

That's because, Khloe has an extensive collection of hair extensions which she uses to constantly change her hair length and style.

Writing on her website, Khloe shared: "I love to play with lengths, so I have lots of variety in my extensions. I also colour code the extensions by putting a drop of nail polish or using a marker on the clips and that corresponds with a colour code I've marked on my Polaroid. I clip my extensions into a pant hanger and blow them out that way."
