Elsewhere, she admitted to another fan that she didn't expect her hair to look so healthy. "I wasn't expecting that at all," she confessed, adding, "It's actually healthier than it's been in a longgggggg time."

"The process is real when you're doing it right. 6 weeks to get all the black of of her ends without damaging it, along with her following my strict haircare regime.
