Taraji P Henson Steps Out with Voluminous Textured Hair


So Taraji P Henson Natural-gate continues!

Back in January Ms Henson posted a photo on her Instagram account of what looked to be a voluminous natural blow out. We declared our excitement at Taraji being part of the undercover natural club, but were quickly checked by readers who pointed to her December 2012 Jet Magazine cover that seemed to feature a relaxed style.

But the questions are flaring up again with photos of Taraji yesterday at the Staples Center for a Los Angeles Kings game, rocking what looks like a natural puff.

I dunno ladies… it looks pretty natural to us!

    I think that all of this discussion about other people’s hair choices is ridiculous. I, for one, have natural hair because relaxers damage my skin. However, more often than not, I have my hair blown out because it makes it easier to manage and is quicker for me since I wasn’t that young girl who stayed in the mirror learning how to style her hair and still haven’t mastered styling as an adult. I much rather go out looking like something with my hair straight than looking a wreck because I don’t know what to do with my hair and tire of the pulled back bun (which, by the way, is damaging to edges).

      This is a hair blog-founded by a natural black woman-if you would like to start a blog about hair and not discuss current celebrity style or other women’s hair choices, then feel free. However, please note, those topics are kinda the point here…Otherwise, it wouldn’t be relevant… Honestly, the title and post were intriguing enough for you to read and participate in the discussion so its safe to assume that it is indeed a good topic to cover. yes?

    I honestly receive motivation from celebs who are in fact natural. They are in a world where beauty is more subjective and constraining. So to make a stance to go natural, remain natural and wear their natural hair is pretty deep. It makes me feel like, if they are doing it, there is no reason I can’t do it. Keep posting these pics. I love it!!!

    I think we misunderstand the relaxed movement as naturalists. Some women don’t go for bone straight relaxed hair and are thus able to maintain some of the curl and ‘puff’ that is typical of natural hair. Let’s give Taraji a break and either vote up or vote down the style rather than trying to determine whether she is on the “natural” meaning not-chemically straightened bandwagon.

    “If it’s growing out of her head then it’s Natural (her real hair) even if the Texture is not. When a woman rollersets or flat irons her natural hair; the hair is still natural even though the Texture is not.”–Natural Kinky Curly-Marie
