Big hair don’t care!
On May 2, the 49-year-old, who wore what appeared to be a black bra, gave fans a glimpse of her natural tresses as she posed for a series of images. As many viewed the caption-less upload, fans flooded Ross’ comments section with hair remarks.
“Hair, hair, and more hair.”
“Tracee has the best hair!”
“You are a beauty, your curls are a dream.”
“Your hair is gorgeous!!!”
“I love how you embrace your wild self, especially your hair!”
Among the hair comments, others raved over Ross’ beauty. One wrote, “This woman here is the epitome of beauty.” Another said, “That lighting! These photos are gorgeous, Tracee!”
In the past, Ross has been transparent about her relationship with her natural hair. In 2020, the actress disclosed the struggles she faced growing up with curly hair in a post titled “A Tale of Textures.”
She said, “My hair has played many a role throughout my life. When I was a teen, I didn’t understand it so I tried everything under the sun to make it do what I thought it should. The results were not great. Namely, it was fried. But, once I began listening to my hair and started figuring out what it liked, my true curl pattern emerged. By the time I made it onto Girlfriends my hair was healthy and POPPIN. But as I have grown and matured my texture has evolved.”
During the upload, Ross also shared how her hair has changed as she’s aged. This includes, she shared, her hair strains turning gray and hair texture becoming loose because she’d dyed it numerous times.
Ross wrapped up the post by sharing the importance of loving oneself. “And while I’m not ready to embrace the gray just yet,” she said, “I’m sure that will be exciting when I do! I’ve always said that my journey to self acceptance can be chronicled through my journey with my hair. Taking the time to accept, understand and love my hair mirrors the relationship I have with myself. I have grown to love and appreciate my hair in all of its seasons. Because hair love IS self love.”
