Nicole Richie has spent the past five years learning to embrace her naturally curly hair.

In the past, the TV personality and fashion designer has been quite the chameleon when it comes to her locks, trying a variety of hairstyles and a range of bold shades, including lilac and platinum blonde.

However, in a new interview with Good Morning America, Nicole recalled how one day she woke up and decided it was time to give her strands a break.

“I had dyed my hair a bunch of colours, and it was great and so much fun, but then it all fell out. I had to cut all my hair off and then I had to really be serious about growing it out. So, I had to do absolutely nothing to it,” she told the outlet. “So, in the process, I had to let my hair go curly. But this moment was really important to me because I would say in the past five years, being forced to not doing anything to my hair, really forced me to take a look at how much I was not embracing my curls and how much of that side of myself I really didn’t like without knowing it.”

Nicole went on to urge other people to consider ditching bleach and heated styling tools too.

“That was a really big moment for me because I was, like, ‘Wait, I like my hair,'” the 37-year-old insisted. “You’ve got to embrace the coils… you’ve got to do it!”

Elsewhere in the chat, Nicole spoke about her new collaboration with doll company Capsule Chix. The Great News star has dialled into her own unique sense of style to create 13 custom looks for the toys.

“You’re no longer having somebody say, ‘This is a doll, this is what you should look like, this is what you should aim to be,'” she shared of the partnership. “It’s really giving whoever’s playing with it the authority to decide what they think is beautiful.”
