The 28-year-old offered up some tips about maintaining healthy hair during an interview with Byrdie in June.

"I think it’s important to take days off. Whether it’s pulling your hair into a low pony or a sleeker, easy hairstyle, it’s good to not style your hair every day," she said. "I think -- depending on your hair type -- not washing your hair every day helps too, since you’re taking away your hair’s natural oils every time you shampoo."
