Natural hair is coming back! Just a few years ago, natural hair was for the churchy girls or the uncool people. However, today, we can see that it is gaining momentum at a very fast pace. Virgin hair, as it is popularly called, is the hair that has basically not been altered. It hasn’t been relaxed or blown and it is usually thick, full, and curly. Since the conventional image of beautiful hair hasn’t been like this, African ladies have spent their time and money trying to tame it and make it look straight and relaxed.
However, for some reason, a lot of people are going retro with their hair and Nigerian female celebrities are not holding back. Over the past few years, we have seen natural hair come back. The coolest celebrities are now rocking it on the red carpet and for events, both nationally and internationally.
Here are the top female celebrities that have stolen the show even with natural hair.
