Solange Knowles Responds To Her Hair Haters And Defends Her Natural Afro

12 June 2012 by

Oh, we do so love Solange Knowles. Isn’t she just the quintessentially cool girl-next-door type with a super-stylish wardrobe? She also happens to be the sister of Beyonce AND in with the fashion crowd, more often than not providing the soundtrack to their parties. And don’t even get us started on the fabulous-ness of her 'fro. But it appears that not everyone agrees.

Natural hair blog Curly Nikki posted an excerpt from an interview with Ms. Knowles in the June issue of Essence about her hair secrets and while some commenters responded positively, many, err, didn’t. Comments appeared below the piece saying 'Solange wears ‘natural’ wigs more than she wears her own natural and when she does, it looks dry, unstyled and unshaped. If she’s truly proud of her natural look, she needs to get from under the wigs and work with her own hair. She has much potential, but she’s not using it.'

Cue outraged gasping. La Knowles quickly took to Twitter to defend her hair-do, saying, 'I never painted myself as a team natural vice president. I don’t know the lingo and don’t sleep with a satin cap… However, I did notice that when I picked out my hair, I kept seeing feedback about needing a “twist out”. Connnnfesssioonnn: I HATE twist outs. Correction, I hate the way they look on me SO I end up always picking them/ steaming them out. Look, all I’m saying is. My hair is not very important to me… so I don’t encourage it to be important to you.'

Well, we LOVE the way that Solange so often transforms her locks and hell, she can do whatever the heck she pleases! Plus we reckon her undone hair only adds to her carefree-cool-girl look and it makes a refreshing change from the likes of Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj who are typically trussed up in wigs. Need proof?
