Cardi B Reveals The Secret Behind Her Long, Luscious Locks

It's big Rapunzel energy for Cardi.

Celebrity News

Cardi B's hair is growing and flowing and she is giving up her hair secrets. The "Money" rapper took to Twitter on Nov. 13 to give fans an update on her hair progress.

"So I've been so consistent with my hair mask routine and drinking alkaline water, and look how much my hair has grown! I was so scared of my hair falling out after my son's birth because I'd been growing it for years now, so I made sure to keep up with it and I actually gain hair," she tweeted.


While many people praised her, she also received backlash from folks who believed that her long hair was simply due to genetics. The Bronx-bred artist is Dominican and Afro-Trinidadian.

But in typical Cardi B fashion, the star clapped back and tweeted, "ItS gEnEtICS! No it's proper hair maintenance. I have a hair texture that requires lots of love and maintenance.This pictures show my hair from childhood, high school & adult hood and since I started takin care of my hair the right way it has grown TREMENDOUSLY!"

She further elaborated on her hair journey on Instagram by showing her hair growth from her childhood days to now and made it clear that she wanted to inspire others with similar hair textures that they too can grow long and healthy hair.

"Why everytime I post my natural hair I hear 'you're MIXED you're supposed to have long hair'?" she wrote, "That's not true and very misleading. I been posting pics of my hair journey for years and being mixed don't mean your hair is always long and curly, that wasn't my case."

Further along she wrote, "I want women of color with tighter curl patterns to know that you don't have 'BAD HAIR' there's no such thing as bad hair. And 'good' hair don't mean a certain texture. ALL HAIR IS GOOD."

She ended her post by writing, "Check out my pinned story 'HAIR DAY' and I can't wait to show ya more of my hair care routines."

It looks like some fans took her advice as they began sharing videos of themselves doing Cardi's DIY hair mask.

The hair mask includes avocado, eggs, mayo, banana, argan oil, castor oil, and honey and according to Cardi and fans who tried it, the results are amazing.

The star also said that she uses the mask on her daughter Kulture's hair.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.

Have you ever wondered how some people tend to get over breakups easily, and others have more of a difficult time? The zodiac signs are always telling a story, and the story of love is written in the stars. Some signs naturally follow their emotions more and live by the heart.

'Abbott Elementary' Proves That TV Can Build Community

The first time I thought about how art could be a form of community building was with HBO’s Insecure. The dearly departed comedy series created and starring Issa Rae provided audiences with more than just weekly laughs over the course of five years, but it also created space for other Black artists and entrepreneurs to thrive-- from all the Black businesses that the show has collaborated with to the Black music artists that the show has put audiences onto. It even created opportunities within entertainment journalism for many up and coming Black journalists who got their start by reviewing the show or hosting after shows unpacking the mess that went on in the episode.
