'Empire' Star Taraji P. Henson Praised for Knowing How to Make Twist Outs with Her Natural Hair

Taraji P. Henson stuns with her natural hair and vows to keep it that way.

Two years ago Taraji P. Henson took a stand and chopped off her hair. and vowed that she would never straighten it again

And the truth is that the short and chic look suited her, and emphasized her exotic beauty.

“I’m not straightening my hair again.” Taraji P. Henson

FROM SHORT AND SLICK TO EXHUBERANT CURLS

But of course, Taraji's hair grew, but she kept her word and instead of straightening it, she has nurtured her gloriously exuberant natural curls.

“ What we’ve been told, ‘Your hair is nappy.’ It’s not nappy, it’s curly. That’s a curl, that’s a coil. That’s energy leading up and I was like, we need to convey that message because I see a lot of girls, natural, is it for fashion or do you really understand what that is?" she said. 

As her hair grew Taraji experimented with braids, detachable ponytails and wigs- but underneath it all, is her crowning glory, her natural hair.

Taraji is so committed to her new look that she will soon be launching her own hair care line.

“I can’t wait to share my hair care system with you. #TPHBeauty coming VERY SOON!!!” she wrote.

THE GLORY OF BLACK HAIR
