“I try not to wash [my hair] too much and I don’t style it a lot. I usually let it air-dry, unless it is for a special occasion. I use Phyto products, which are great for conditioning, because I get these terrible tangles at the nape of my neck. They are the bane of my existence.”

“I’ve been very lucky so far. I haven’t had any bad experiences as far as fan encounters. They don’t really recognize me. I think it has to do with my hair. I change it all the time. I like changing my hair color and sometimes it’s just not for a role. Usually, I just do it for me.”

Rachel told Glamour Magazine, “I always wanted pink hair. I wanted to do my whole head, but my hairstylist, Robert, was like, "How about we start small?" I absolutely loved it. I still think about doing blue at some point, but I don't like to change my hair before I'm about to do [a film] — you never know what that character's going to be.”
