Jeannette Reyes Natural Hair
Reyes wore her natural hair in September 2021. This happened following her being questioned on an app, TikTok why she doesn’t wear her natural hair. She said it was terrifying to wear her natural hair and didn’t know how to do her hair.
After sharing her fears, many women supported her and encouraged her to wear her natural hair. And, some even sent pictures of their natural hair both on Twitter and Instagram. Additionally, some gave her tips on how to take care of and manage her hair.
“Today was the big day. The day I decided to wear my natural hair on air. It started with a question I answered on Tiktok regarding my reluctance (fear, really) of wearing my hair curly on air. I worried I may have shared too much 😅 Then the messages of support, encouragement…and tips came pouring in. Thousands of them. But it was one comment in particular that ultimately made me take the leap (see video for that).
Last night, I announced that I would do the big reveal today (and lost sleep wondering if I’d regret that 😬). And this morning hundreds of you from around the country, including my Philly people ❤️, tuned in to cheer me on and shared pictures of your natural hair on Twitter and here on IG. I’ve yet to get to all of your comments, DMs, tweets, videos etc. But know that I see you and I feel the love. You made this just a little easier for me 🥰
NOTE: I did flexi rods to get bigger and more defined curls and also to blend in my “leave out” from the weave I used to have since that hair has a looser curl. This is also easier to manage for a newbie like me. I hope to get closer to a wash-and-go (with my tighter curls) once I start getting the hang of this thing. I also ad..” she posted on her Instagram account on September 23rd, 2021. Occasionally, she wears her natural hair both on TV and in life.
