    Goaple don’t look natural…… But beautiful ladies anyway

    • Nak

      Goapele looks more natural that Marsha Ambrosius. I’m pretty sure Marsha got a perm.

    • gurlwiththefro

      Essence did an article on her about her natural hair.

    • Jack

      Both ladies have straight hair on their heads…. If you’re counting the Goapele’s half fade, you could consider her “more” natural than Marsha. I think everyone has a different definition of what it means to be natural. For me it’s related to texture, one’s hair textures as it grows out of their scalp. For others it’s different.

  • Aliyah

    Having finer textured hair doesn’t mean they aren’t natural or have had a perm. Especially given the fact that both ladies have a white parent. Either way they all look gorgeous!

    • Nak

      LOL. I know the difference between natural and perm, and the variations in hair texture. I’m just very accustomed to Marsha’s hair from back in her Floetry days, till now. This very well may be just flat-ironed, but given that it’s been looking like this for awhile I am under the impression she chemically straightened her hair.

      • Angie

        Don’t be mad she got that good hair.

        • Nak

          LOL @ Angie, I ain’t.

          • JaJaAuNaturel

            What is “that good hair” you speak of?

        • Martini

          Did u really say good hair, OMG healthy hair is good hair. PERIOD

        • . With the plethora of coiches coming on the scenes these days, the voter needs as much information available to them so they are able to discern the good from the bad. Just because some judges offer you the world for next to nothing, doesn’t mean that you will get what you really want. I hope that more voters realize the value of a good judge. You get what you voted for!http : // www .

      marsha parents are both black. light skinned but black.

  • Goapele may have just pressed her hair. It doesn’t look chemically processed to me. Each lady looks lovely :)

    • Sandy

      Goapele relaxed her hair and is growing it out (that’s why she got the fade hairstyle). Read her essence interview where she talks about this (google ‘goapele relaxed hair essence mag’ and the interview will pop up)

    Some people just have to over analyze…..They are all beautiful ladies, natural or not

  • msboogee


  • Coco

    Marsha has admitted to having keratin. However, my twist outs are just as beautiful & I’m a 4b/c. Keep rocking ladies.

    • Nak

      SEEE!!!!! And all I got was thumbs down for pointing out the obvious.

    • Veronica

      How do you get your twist outs to look like that??? I have similarly textured hair to yours and I would love for my hair to look like that.

  • KD

    They all look great, but I especially love Solange…She always has a slamming look and I just love her style..

  • Lauryn

    On an overall style note, Solange is killen the game right now… and, sorry, but I find Marsha’s hair and Goapele’s hair boring in these styles. Not the there’s anything wrong with the style itself, but I’m not feeling those looks on them.

  • Old fan

    Please get rid of the thumbs up/thumbs down function.

    • Kade

      LOOL the irony!! (??? Not sure if that’s the right word) asking to get rid of thumbs down thumbs up function and getting thumbs down…..forgive me I just found this funny, I actually laughed out loud…..anywhoo *looks away whistling*.

  • sasha

    I absolutely love Marsha’s twist out.

  • jonelle

    everyone looks great. i really love the dress Solange is wearing but is it me or does she look old in this pic?

    • Deb

      she just got under eye bags which means she’s probably pretty sleep deprived. I got some big ones right now from studying nonstop for finals *sigh*

  • GoldenFro

    Few things scarier than the comments section of a natural hair blog, whew. Either you like it or you don’t, but these attacks! We all might as well still have perms because, for many, the mentality hasn’t changed. What happened to we’re all beautiful? Ha!

  • Solange’s fro is fierce. She and the other natural ladies are beautiful.

  • CurlyQ

    Solange’s dress is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

  • Reagan

    Willie Lynch mentality is real. This is the reason I left the natural hair group on facebook.

  • Tisha

    I am not feeling Marsha nor Goapele’s hair but Solange looks fabulous from head to toe!!! her fro is so nice.

  • In my humble opinion, Solange is WAY more classy and beautiful than her unfortunate sister.

  • Toya

    Goapele has always been natural, I’m sure that’s a press!! All of the ladies look lovely!!

  • Zelda

    Marsha doesnt have a twist out….thats a curly weave. I also think she has a relaxer or heat straightened it. Im not upset or anything it looks nice…however I think the description of her hair in the article is wrong. Marsha’s hair texture is not fine & silky. When she was in Floetry she had a kinky fro.nuff said
