Actress Raquel Lee has been lighting up the screen since she was nine years old, starring in such shows as Nickelodeon’s Amanda Show, the voice of “The Gross Sisters” on Disney’s “Proud Family and on Kevin Hart’s Real Husbands of Hollywood. Now, the natural beauty is starring alongside Lil Duval, DeRay Davis and Snoop Dogg in her new film Grow House and looking fabulous while serving up loads of hilarity. 

We caught up with the beauty at a recent screening where we learned the beauty (who became a new mom last July) does her own hair and makeup and prefers to rock her own tresses. “I just add a few clips ins to give it some body,” she said.

Read on to find out more about her beauty beat and what products she swears by.

How her routine has changed since becoming a new mom.
“Lately, I’ve been trying new stuff. I’ve been going natural since I’ve had my daughter. For some reason, she gave me some spark with my hair.”

Her go-to product when its natural.
“I use Marc Anthony curls. It does your curls wonders! I love how nice my curls turn out.”

And, when it’s straight.
“I wrap it every night and then touch up my edges with Vonte Styling Wax. It works wonders.”

How she avoids heat damage.
“I like Moroccan. The oil works really well. You only need a small amount. It keeps my hair from drying out and protects it from the heat.”

On her overall hair care routine.
“Hair is a big thing for me. Since I was a kid, I’ve been acting and it’s always been important for me to have a good hair system. My hair schedule changes depending on the style. When I wear my hair curly, it can last for up to three days. I wash it with Moroccan curls shampoo and conditioner. I then use Marc Anthony’s Curls to moisturize and define my curls. I always like to use oil in my hair once my curls dry to keep them shiny.”
