A newcomer to the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast, Porsha held her own on the show this season! “I’m glad I did it and survived. The show is just like real life: relationships develop and some of them blossom into actual friendships, and then some of them you thought you were going to be close to, it doesn’t work out. It’s definitely a rollercoaster.”

Porsha knows how to rock voluminous tresses—even when she’s on the go. “I wear 100-percent human Indian hair extensions. I wear extensions because they’re less maintenance when you’re really busy and on the go. It’s also less heat put on my real hair, so it’s protected. During the [TV] season, I have a traditional sew-in [weave] with braids and tracks, but when I’m not filming, I’ll do clip-in extensions.”

When it comes to rocking a weave, Porsha is a pro! “Make sure your hair is clean all the time, and it should be manageable. I don’t use any products on [my weave] whatsoever. I can have the same head of weave as someone else and mine will look totally different. My hair is clean and my curls are flowing because I don’t put product on it ever day!”
