I love going to the movies. Entertainment, popcorn and good company, what’s not to like? A few months ago I found myself in the cinema watching the very funny and talented bunch in Think Like A Man.
Gabby Union was adorable, Meagan Good was fabulous, Kevin Hart was hysterical and even the cameo by Morris Chestnut had me swooning (but I’ve had a girly crush on him forever).
Anyway what struck me in that film was how odd it was that even with the natural hair movement in full swing, Hollywood still insists on remaining relaxed, straightened or weaved up.
I mean of course you have a few celebs who have gone with the natural trend but by and large you have to admit that the African American women gracing our screens night after night tend to keep their locks on the sleek smooth side.
I’m not going to get all political with this post, my views on relaxed hair and the right to choose are already out there. Having said that, without a doubt, natural hair looks like it’s here to stay so I would have expected a few more celebs to be rocking their curls and kinks by now.
You may be surprised to learn that 69% of our readership is either already natural or transitioning (even though this is firmly an equal opportunities hair care website). So I thought it was about time we had fun and got to see what some of these celebrities would look like with natural hair. Who knows, it may nudge some of them into taking the plunge!
Now don’t shoot me when it comes to the choices of hair texture that I chose for each celebrity. It was all very unscientific and there are so many different options that I just went with what I actually wanted to see.
So with a bit of Photoshop magic, let’s begin . . .
