For many naturalistas, Tracee was a shining example of how they wanted their hair to look when “Girlfriends” debuted. The actress was always rocking her God-given texture and slayed. She has been rocking her natural hair since she was 13 years and her mum was her inspiration.
To be able to see other women that have their hair like me, it gives me a sense of belonging, and I love that is a part of television now. “I’m loving the natural hair movement. It’s really encouraging and is expanding the definition of beauty.” Tracee said
She rocks her natural hair on red carpets, interviews, movie sets and photo shoots.
She is the definition of a true naturalista who looks naturally fabulous!
So you see that having and wearing your own natural hair does not make you less successful.
