If you follow my posts, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of researching and reading opinions about hair online. After researching many celebrities with natural hair, I’ve stumbled over a few opinions about the possibility that most celebrities are natural. There isn’t any way to prove this opinion, but it doesn’t hurt to talk about it and look at some examples. Earlier on in my writing, I wrote about Amber Riley. She is the Glee star who consistently wore wigs on the show and on the red carpet. She revealed on the show that her hair was natural and later went on tumblr to show her fans that it was a true depiction.
I’ve recently saw a few write ups about celebrities now going on tumblr and Instagram revealing their natural hair and showing fans that under the wigs and weaves, they have luxurious and long natural hair. Raven Simone was another who mainly wore weaves until she started rocking her mini fro. Tyra Banks didn’t show her natural curls until she did a segment on her show on the Chris Rock documentary, Good Hair. Celebrities that you wouldn’t think were naturalists are naturalists. Women like Nicki Minaj, Toya Wright, Angela Simons, Taraji P. Henson, and Gabriel Union are. Many of them use the same reasoning that with hiding their natural hair, they are protecting it from the constant changes that come with a face-paced lifestyle.
