Laverne Cox has always been one to share empowering messages on self-love ― and when it comes to her relationship with her hair, her approach is no different.
On Thursday, the award-winning actress posted a picture to Instagram showing her posing in a dazzling beaded dress and flaunting her flawless natural hair. The picture, which was taken from a photo shoot in January, shows her beautiful curls styled for a look that she says she was “most excited about” that day.
“I haven’t relaxed my hair since 2011,” she wrote in the caption. “My natural hair journey continues and I want to celebrate that as much as the other looks we rock.”
Cox said that she usually chooses to wear wigs and other protective hairstyles because it’s easier for her to manage, but she still fully embraces her natural hair and also wants “to celebrate my natural hair sisters,” she wrote. “I love you!”
