Recently we have seen a few celebs embracing their natural hair; Thandie Newton been spotted embracing her shiny curls at a fundraising gala at the Sadler's Wells Theatre in Clerkenwell, London. The actress revealed she decided to stop straightening her hair in a bid to discourage Ripley and Nico from feeling insecure about their natural curls. Thandie told long time friend and make-up artist Kay Montano: 'I didn’t want my daughters to judge their beautiful curls.'  The British star, 39, said she stopped using chemical relaxers typically used by black women to straighten their locks after seeing comic Chris Rock's documentary film Good Hair. I watched Good hair, after I had decided to go natural and I was glad I made that choice. I will recommend people to watch it (Good hair) it’s very good and funny. She added: 'the stigma with some black women seems to be that "nappy hair" (natural afro hair) is almost as bad as loo roll trailing from your shoe. 'I've always let my daughter’s hair be wild and scruffy... when they were papped in the States I had remarks about how I don’t take care of their hair. The truth is I choose to keep it that way. 'When I see hair that’s been pulled, stretched, brushed till bullet smooth I just think "ouch". I have my limits mind, sometimes I have to beg Nico to let me tidy it up for fear of her looking like she’s been neglected!'. The bottom line is embrace you hair either natural or relaxed as long as you’re comfortable & happy with it, that is what matters.
