Hair chameleon Cynthia Bailey takes a brief break from her weaved up style to share an honest moment about her natural hair care journey. Earlier this week, the “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star shared a snap (which has since been taken down) of her natural hair in ponytails, before gushing over the importance of keeping your natural hair healthy and strong.
She captioned the image, “Taking a much needed weave break! I try to do this every 3 months but I am usually too busy working & traveling to commit. This is what my hair looks like right now. As you can see it is growing but my leave out (WHICH IS DYED BLOND TO BLEND IN WITH MY BLOND EXTENSIONS) & edges are a little stressed damaged. I just washed, conditioned & put it in 2 ponytails. AirDry not blow dry!”
She added, “I love changing my hair up & weaves and wigs are the quickest ways to get different looks. However, I always want to make sure my natural hair is strong & healthy. I highly suggest taking a weave break ladies! Even if it’s only for a couple of weeks. I’m going to try to do 2 months. Found some great wigs for work that I can take off at night to get me thru. Just wanted to share. The hair struggle is real”
Bailey joins a long list of stars, including Porsha Williams, Beyonce, Gabrielle Union, and Erica Dixon, all of whom have flaunted their natural coif via social media. Got to give it to her; we appreciate the honesty!
