captioned ‘Crown Act Be proud of your crown #iamnotmyhair #hairjourney’, the video begins with Pinkett Smith recounting how she felt some ‘definite remorse’ and saying ‘Being a black woman and dealing with hair in Hollywood, in this age I’ve come, it was the look of your hair’ European as possible is always the thing.”
“It was really challenging, you know, because I loved my unruly, curly hair,” she said. “But nobody wants that.”
Instead, the “Matrix” star said she’ll have to style her hair in ways that don’t “feel natural” because she’s “trying to play the game” in Hollywood.
For magazine covers, it’s often a request from Pinkett Smith to have her hair “straight and flowy” which “wasn’t really what my hair liked to do.”
“So I had to learn how to have the courage to go, ‘No, I don’t,’” she said. “And that’s why I feel so free today—I don’t give two crap what people think of my bald head. Because guess what? I love him.”
