The hair of Tracee Ellis Ross should have its own spot on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It has its own persona and we demand that it gets its day on the big screen as well. Have you ever seen her in weaves, have you? Me neither! Although she admits to have disliked her hair earlier in her natural hair journey. Something about having too much hair…She will not dislike her voluminous hair. Not on our watch.
We all want to know what magic she does to her hair in order to make it so big and bold. In 2015 she spoke to Glamour Magazine, revealing her hair care journey and her experiences through this thing called life. She had the following to say:
She used to call a certain phone number, in the morning before school, 212-977-1212, which was the weather, and she would wait to hear the percentage of humidity in the air. If it was over 60 percent, she would not wash her hair!
She stated, “ I think, if anything, my hair, has been such a journey for me, a journey of self-acceptance, that if my journey and me sharing my journey and the things that did and didn’t work offers anyone the inspiration or the courage to find that for themselves, then I feel like my journey was not for nothing.”
She emphasized and emphasized again that the number one trick to maintaining her curly hair is hydration. The more hydration, the less the frizz and the longer she can get out of a natural style.
“My journey toward self-acceptance has been a lifelong thing and will continue to be a lifelong thing; it’s a daily journey. I’m not out here trying to pretend that I’m anything other than I am. I’m not pretending to be somebody else, and I have no intention of putting up or out a front that I’m a perfect, unflawed being.’’
