‘Rock Ya Fro Sis’: Kandi Praises Daughter Riley’s Big Chop, Fans Show Support

The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reality star Kandi Burruss and her daughter Riley Burruss are embracing their natural beauty while sheltering in place during the pandemic. 

Recently, Burruss uploaded to Instagram a TikTok video of herself, Riley, and creator Patrick Dallas dancing. In the video, it’s clear that Riley has undergone the big chop to restart her hair journey, and Burruss is supporting her daughter’s natural ’do.

 “So 2 weeks ago, my baby girl @rileyburruss decided to cut all her hair off,” Burruss wrote.

“Her hair was damaged & she wanted to cut it short & start all over. I like her Afro! Thanks for the #bigchop @derekjhair. Sidebar: follow us on TikTok @kandi & @rileyburruss & @patrickdallas_ is k.p.dallas33 on TikTok,” Burruss added. 

Fans took to the Bravo TV star’s comments section to share their support of Riley’s new look. 

“When I tell you I am loving that Afro!!!!!!!! She looks really good!!!!!!”

“Yesss Riley, this hair😍😍😍😍😍😍😍.”

“She could go bald; she literally has the face to pull it off. She is gorgeous!”

“She’s a beautiful young lady. I did the same thing, and my hair is very healthy, strong, and long—under this damn wig, of course 😂😂.”

“Love it! Her face is so pretty💖 Rock ya fro sis👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽.”

“She’s beautiful!!!!”

“I like it too!!!❤️❤️ it will be longer in no time.”

“Pretty like her mama.”

Burruss and her oldest daughter seem to be making the best out of self-isolation. However, while rocking a natural look, the businesswoman and mother of three did admit in an Instagram post on April 2 that she’s been teaching, cooking, and cleaning, which has her worn out. 

“My #RHOA girls doin #NoMakeup challenges with lash extensions, fillers, & filters. I’m gonna keep it 💯 wit y’all,” Burruss wrote.

“I’m lookin tired AF with these dark circles, no makeup, no lashes, hair ain’t done, nails f*cked up… 🤣🤣🤣 This quarantine bs ain’t for me. Teaching school, cleaning, & cooking all day… I can’t take it!!!! This can’t be life. 😩.”
