Jordana Brewster was "really scared" of dying her hair.

The 36-year-old actress has admitted she avoided changing the colour of her long locks because she was terrified of the outcome, but the star has revealed after recently experimenting with the hair product she is now "really happy" with the final look.

Speaking about her beauty fear, the brunette beauty said: "I was really scared to colour my hair but I did it recently and I'm really happy with it."

And the 'Furious 7' star - who is known for playing Vin Diesel's on-screen sister Mia Toretto in the racing series - has hinted she felt she needed to add "depth in tone" to her tresses because of her acting career.

She explained: "Especially with TV, your hair colour needs some depth in tone. I love the Shu Uemura Moisture Velvet because it keeps my hair from looking dry or ashy. Sometimes I'll style it myself, but I do go to Drybar in L.A. a lot."

And Jordan - who is married to Andrew Form and have sons Julian, six, and four-month-old Rowan, both born via a gestational surrogate - is always seeking ways to add texture to her locks.

She said: "Since I work out regularly, if I get a really good blowout, I'll just use the Ouai Dry Shampoo. Or I'll just leave my hair wet, put it in a loose low bun, and I get texture that way. Living in L.A., you don't have to do much."

Meanwhile the Panama City-born star has revealed she regularly turns to her mother Maria for beauty tips, because her parent is "more pristine" than she is.

She explained to Into The Gloss website: "My mom is Brazilian, so I would say that's had an influence on who I am, beauty-wise.

"My mother is more pristine than I am in terms of her looks--if she doesn't have any makeup on she'll put on dark glasses, but she'll always have makeup on in front of my dad. She was a model, too, so I defer to her on all things that involve skincare."
