Zendaya Coleman's hair disasters

Zendaya Coleman has had her fair share of "hair nightmares".

The 19-year-old actress admits her stunning locks have not always been that way due to her hair being "destroyed" during her mid-teens.

She shared: "I've experienced hair nightmares. On the first season of the Disney Channel's 'Shake It Up', heat-styling destroyed my hair. I was only 14 years old, and I didn't know how to protect my hair, so it took over two years to grow it back, which really sucked!

"Over time, I learned how to properly care for my hair, and I partnered with Chi because the brand has so many products that protect it. I use the Argan Oil line because it's really moisturizing. I condition my hair every day, and I shampoo it every other day."

And the 'Zapped' star is happy to experiment with her tresses and credits Diana Ross and Grace Jones as her hair inspiration.

She added to PEOPLE magazine: "I am not afraid to have fun with my look. A lot of the styles I wear are inspired by Cher, Joan Jett, Grace Jones and Diana Ross. When people see me, I want them to understand the character that I am that night. I want them to have a moment."
