Solange Scolds Natural Hair Police

Solange

Whether she likes it or not, Solange has become the celebrity representative for the natural hair movement ever since she made the big chop a few years back. However, the natural hair police have recently taken to the internet to express their disdain for the current state of Solange's growing afro, insisting via comment threads that she needs to do a twist out or that her 4c curl pattern looks funny.

Always one to speak her mind, Solange fired back on Twitter.

"I’m only going to say a few things. I cut my hair ALL off 4 times in my life all for very different reasons….I only reiterate this because this is nothing new for me. This 4th time did not define me, just as it had not the previous 3 times. I've never painted myself as a team natural vice president. I don't know the lingo and I don't sleep with a satin cap…However, I did notice when I picked out my hair, I kept seeing feedback about needing a "twist out". Connnnfesssioonnn: I HATE twist outs. Correction, I hate the way they look on me. SO I end up always picking them/steaming them out."

The DJ and Carol's Daughter spokesperson continued on to say:

"Look, all I’m saying is. My hair is not very important to me….so I don't encourage it to be important to you. I’m very emotional today (involving something else), so I’m letting the momentum of that help me to express the fact that…I don’t want to talk about no damn hair…..no mo."

Going natural has (obviously) become a very political action to some, while to others it is mainly a lifestyle or beauty choice.
