Ciara is “so proud” of how her hair has grown back following a disastrous chemical treatment.
The Goodies singer is always one to watch on the red carpet, and since launching her career in 2003, has built up a reputation for her glamorous ensembles and eye-catching hairstyles.
Recently, Ciara has ditched her long extensions for her natural tresses, and on Sunday (28Apr19), she uploaded a video to Instagram showing how she can now tie her hair up into a ponytail.
“The first time I got a relaxer when I was young, it took out my hair. I was devastated. I never thought my hair would grow back. So proud,” she captioned the video.
A relaxer is a type of cream or lotion typically used by people with natural curls which makes hair easier to straighten by chemically “relaxing” the strands.
In the video, Ciara teased fans that she would divulge all of her hair “secrets” at a later date.
The clip has quickly racked up over 1.8 million views, with fans praising the star’s decision to embrace her own hair instead of experimenting with wigs or hairpieces.
“Long hair don’t care,” one user wrote in the comments, while a second stated, “Because we’re not meant to get relaxers Queen our hair texture is meant to stay in its natural hair state #teamnatural.”
Another follower suggested that Ciara’s new look is all down to her settled home life, with the 33-year-old having been blissfully happy since marrying Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in 2016.
Together they have daughter Sienna, who turned two on Sunday, and she also is mum to four-year-old son Future from her on again, off again relationship with rapper Future.
“Her hair is long because she got rid of all the negative stuff,” they insisted.
As part of the promotion of her Beauty Marks album, which is set to be unveiled in May, Ciara also posted a make-up-free selfie to Instagram last week, and encouraged her followers to do the same for a project celebrating the new record – her seventh studio offering.
