After sharing her experience, Zendaya growing out her natural hair seems so relatable, and we love her even more!

Oh, the things we’ve done to our hair when we didn’t know better. The curly-haired among us can agree that before we started to embrace our texture, we absolutely tortured our poor strands with chemical relaxers, blow dry after blow dry, and flat irons that were probably set too high. Come on, nobody knew anything about heat protectors back in the day.

The process of embracing your curls is a long one and requires patience and restraint. Most curlies choose to avoid heat altogether, or at least until they hit a growth milestone. Who knew that under Zendaya’s wigs, braids, and fabulous protective styles that she was going through her own natural hair journey?

According to the star’s Instagram caption, she’d done the #HeatBreak and has even been experimenting with new natural products. Yasssss, Zendaya!

There’s no better feeling than seeing even the tiniest bit of progress on a hair journey. It can take months for natural curls to reappear after repeated straightening. It looks like Zendaya’s regimen is paying off, so kudos to her!
