Transitioning your crown from processed to natural is a big deal. When we’re surrounded by brown celebrities with long, glamorous tresses, it only reinforces the idea you can’t be sexy without a head full of 30-inch Yaki hair extensions. Which is precisely why these stars and their healthy halos are such a breath of fresh air. Rocking the natural look, these women remind us that our own curly crown can be just as hot, without ironing out our kinks and curls.
Not only are there endless ways to rock our coiled strands—locks, braids, cornrows or a funky fro—but there’s something about embracing the hair you’ve been blessed with that does wonders for your confidence.
These celebrities have got the natural look down and have inspired us to keep on the organic path no matter how many times a bad combing session has us reaching for the relaxer kit.
Of course, there’s nothing wrong with weaves, wigs and relaxed hair, but after years of seeing black women having to conform to a certain image in order to be accepted, it’s liberating to see how far our collective hair journey has come.
