Henson, 42, took to Instagram this week to show off her tresses maintained by celebrity hairstylist Dante Blandshaw. Blandshaw, whose worked with the likes of Angela Simmons and Mary J.

The picture shows Henson looking into the camera will a head full of what appears to be natural hair. Henson has long been praised for her signature short cut that she at times hides beneath wigs and weaves.
And while some are praising Henson for showing off her natural ‘do, others are crying foul and claiming that it’s once again, another carefully crafted weave. If this is Taraji’s real hair however, she’ll join the likes of Toya Wright, Nicki Minaj and Malaysia Pargo who have all showed off pictures of their natural, lengthy locks to the masses.
