The world may never know the true identity of “Becky with the good hair,” but No. 1 suspect Rachel Roy has recently shared her hair secrets with beauty site Into The Gloss.
Roy has been in the spotlight since Beyonce’s earth-shattering “Lemonade” dropped in April. While the lyric was widely believed to be a reference to the historically complex relationship between black women and their hair, the witch hunt to find “Becky” was largely focused on the fashion designer after she posted an unfortunately timed, now infamous Instagram of said “good hair.”
Regardless of her connection (or lack thereof) to “Lemonade,” it’s no secret Roy is blessed with undeniably enviable locks. Her secret? Keeping her natural color, limiting washes and indulging in the occasional oil treatment.
Roy told the site she only ever dyed her locks once and frequents Tracey Cunningham’s salon. “I do get oil treatments, where they put oil on your scalp row by row and then massage you for 30 minutes. It’s amazing because my scalp gets dry,” she said, adding that she only washes her hair “about once a week.”
While a blowout can last Roy a whole week, she sometimes opts for a style that’s a little edgier.
“If I get it styled, I like braids or a ponytail. I like it done really high and tight because it gives your face a little lift,” she said.
