Jennifer Aniston has some of the most famous tresses in Hollywood, which the actress says she always found funny because when she was younger, her hair was a "challenge". Twenty years after she made "The Rachel" the go-to hairstyle for women all around the country, Aniston says she can't believe it hung around for so long, especially since it's difficult to maintain.

"When Chris (McMillan, her stylist) would style it my hair would be great, it would look gorgeous. But then when I was left to my own devices, it wouldn't look the same!" she said.

At the time--when Friends was at the height of its popularity--Aniston loved the cut. But once she realized how difficult it was to style on her own, it got old really fast. She kept the cut less than a year before she started to let it grow out, she says, but other women hung on to it and McMillan was in high demand for a long time because of the style.

"It was all anyone ever wanted to know about, all Chris ever got asked to do. I liked it at the time, but I started to grow it out after about eight months. But it just wouldn't die," she said.

Aniston recently surprised fans when she revealed that she only washes her hair once every 2 or 3 days, but says it's made possible by Living Proof products, which she endorses.

"I don’t get a lot of product build-up with Living Proof and my hair doesn’t get dirty straight away. I wash my hair with No Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner. And with PHD Styling Treatment I can air-dry and style my hair in 10 minutes, when it used to take 25 minutes," she said.
