“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.

THE GLORY OF BLACK HAIR

For Taraji, black women have been blessed with hair that naturally defies gravity, and possesses the volume and bounces so many other women aspire to and can only get through expensive and damaging treatments.
