As the “Blessed” artist fingered through her thick tresses, she revealed braiding her hair gets to be painful. She admitted she’s over the natural hair life and will leave that to her fellow thick-haired girls, according to HelloBeautiful.
“After four, five months of keeping my braids in, ’cause I told y’all I got the carpet hair, I’m finna get a perm,” she said. “Because I gotta get my hair braided, and that sh*t hurt. I’m not doing this again. In one more week, it’ll be [the] one-year anniversary since I had a perm.”
“I’m not finna keep this natural sh*t going. I’m keeping that for the b***hes that don’t have this carpet-a** hair I got,” GloRilla continued. “I’m gonna clock back in tomorrow after I do it, y’all,” she said as she closed out the video.
Natural hair care has become a trend over the last decade, with Black women wanting to leave the harsh chemicals behind. On the other hand, there are women who rock perms and find it easier to manage. Whether you wear wigs, sew-ins, protective hairstyles, or perms, your crown is beautiful.
