With beauty heavy on the brain, the star admitted that she had to give up her purple tresses for a good reason. “The constant color was damaging to my natural curls,” Justine shares. “To be honest, purple is not even my favorite color. I just liked the way it looked.”

Well, we can definitely empathize with Justine! Like it or not, coloring your hair consistently can cause breakage, hair loss and even mess with your natural curl pattern. When it comes to the health of our tresses, we will happily ditch any style that gets in the way of a healthy mane.
