About two years ago, Sanaa Lathan took the drastic decision to shave her head bald. The talented actress did not get the big chop from a stylist, and she did it as the cameras were rolling for her hit movie, Nappily Ever After.
In the Netflix original film, Lathan’s character, Violet Jones, is in pain and is confused after a bad breakup and decides to shave her head bald.
Recently Lathan took to social media where she happily showed off how her long and beautiful her hair has grown since.
She also explained: “Can’t believe it’s been two years since I shaved it all off. It’s been a long journey, and I definitely have a new appreciation for my natural hair. BUT I do need help, though. It definitely is not easy! 😅 Thankful, I have amazing people to help me take care of it. Check out Kim Kimble’s youtube tutorial for this natural twist out style. Coming soon. 💋”
One fan told her: “WOMAN! GODDAMN! 😁🔥👏🙌🏿👀 Oh wait, we’re focused on your hair… I love it!”
Another woman stated: “Kudos to you, I’m trying, but I don’t know if I can keep up with his natural hair thing. Sigh. It’s a trip & so tiresome! There’s an ugly side that no one wants to talk about because it reinforces the negative stereotypes of Afro-type hair. But, I need a tuck-it-away style fast so I can enjoy “hair” again!”

This observer stated: “Natural hair is a lot of work…Let me go learn how to stretch this 4c enough to do this style. You are doing so good managing it I can only wish to run my fingers through it. 😍💋”
A sixth comment revealed: “Very pretty💕 Which lip color are you wearing, it’s beautiful. Do you both have on the same lippy?”
Lathan is fearless when it comes to her sense of style.
