The Orange Is The New Black star loves to experiment with hair pieces and says she usually keeps her natural hair in cornrows for easy maintenance.

"I live in wigs, and having a product to take care of my wigs is essential," Laverne tells Refinery29.

She adds, "I've recently committed to oiling my scalp daily. I keep coconut oil next to my toothbrush, so I brush, floss and get it done."

Laverne also reveals that she used to be afraid to stand out, but now she loves to try different looks and styles.

"For many years, I would hide parts of myself. I would think that no one wanted hear, see or experience certain parts of myself in fear of being rejected. But now I'm at a point in my life where I want to embrace every shade of the Laverne rainbow," she says.
