PS: What do you do to help your hair grow?
IR: You just have to take care of it. Felicia has helped me a lot. After a while, you just give up. You're like, "I'm never going to have long hair! Just put it in braids!" She has the [Instagram] handle of lovingyourhair, and it's true: she just teaches you to love your hair.
I'm a product junkie and I try different things, but for the most part it's been learning to appreciate it, take care of it. I love experimenting with styles and to be able to show different styles on the show and have people be like, "Oh, I didn't know I could do anything else, and to see you do it, now feel like I can," is great. It's so affirming.
