Zendaya Shares Her Best Kept Hair Secret And We Bet You Can't Guess What It Is


While we can all agree Zendaya has bombshell natural hair, like many of us black girls, she spent a long time feeling insecure about her curls, and often resorted to straightening her locs.

"Growing up, I wasn’t very confident in my curls," the actress shared with PeopleStyle last year. "It wasn’t like the hair that girls around me had. And nobody really knew what to do with my hair."

But thankfully, it seems as though she's come a long way and has now truly embraced her God-given tresses.

On Wednesday, the 20-year-old posted a new pic on the 'gram, sharing a hair update with her 37.6 million followers.

"When you've spent the past however many years growing your damaged hair back, avoiding heat, wearing wigs and trying every natural product in the world and you finally see a little curl pattern comin back... #yeslawwwwd," the former Disney star captioned the post.

And you better believe the photo left many natural hair newbies questioning, "How does she get her hair to do that?"

Well, if you were among those wondering, looks like you're in luck. Because 'Daya recently took to her app to share her best kept hair secret, and you won't believe what it is.
