R&B singer Chrisette Michele may be the latest celebrity to shave her head, but she’s doing more than making a “fashion statement.”
The “Epiphany” hitmaker is standing up for natural hair and embracing her organic self.
In a recent interview after a concert at Albany State University, Michele revealed that she has made a conscious decision to stop damaging her own hair with relaxers and heat, and instead embrace her natural (non-chemically treated) hair the way it actually is – as each strand grows from the root of her head in its purest form.
“I was tired of black sista’s feeling subject to having their hair pressed and straightened, and damaged, with relaxers, and heat. So I wanted to make short and nappy hair fashionable, and let the industry know that there is nothing wrong with the texture that we have been born with. So I plan to grow it out to the big beautiful nappy hair that I have.”
