Becky Reveals How She Gets the Good Hair 


Rachel Roy has largely avoided the press since appearing to out herself on Instagram in April as the adulterous “Becky with the good hair” in Beyoncé’s Lemonade, which she tried rather unsuccessfully to pivot into a conversation about bullying before claiming it was all a bad joke. In keeping with this odd PR strategy, her first major interview is with beauty website IntoTheGloss, and it is about her hair.

The interview, whose URL includes the SEO-optimized “rachel-roy-hair,” does not reference Beyoncé or Lemonade or the phrase “good hair” or the overwhelming public perception that Jay Z cheated on Beyoncé with Rachel Roy—IntoTheGloss’s “Top Shelf” interviews are edited into one long quote—but it does reveal her first job (at Contempo Casuals!), her dentist (“Apa is my dentist, and he’s very chic.”), and a pill she takes that is “filled with greens.”

And of course, her hair care routine, supplemented by photos of Roy touching her hair:

I only colored my hair once, and I regretted it. You really have to make a commitment to maintain it. At that point, I just wanted to know what I would look like as a light brunette, but it wasn’t a good look for me. Now I go to Tracey Cunningham for a gloss, to brighten it, and then someone at her salon Mèche cuts it. On occasion, 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. That’s why I only wash my hair about once a week. I’m a dry shampoo girl because of that. I can get a blowout to last me a whole week. 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.

Well. There you have it, folks!
