Jennifer then added that after a trim from her stylist, who "assessed it like I would assess a patient," they realized that her locks were coming back.

"I have new growth, you can see the fuzz. It's healthier," she added. "I plan to stay the course." She even detailed her routine of abstaining from professional styling, spacing out highlights, using her clip-in pony, vitamins, and leave-in conditioners.
