Jada Pinkett Smith Reveals Her Natural Hair While Out on a Run

Avatar • Aug 31, 2011

Charissa says;

I spotted these photos on MediaTakeOut.com and I thought Jada’s hair was awesome! I know the pictures aren’t the most flattering since she was caught working out, but I love how thick her hair is.

The pictures aren’t flattering but I love it nonetheless! That’s a lot of hair! What are your thoughts ladies?

Come on! This is NOT jada’s real hair.
This is a “natural” wig or weave.

What is this site’s definition of natural?

Hater! I’ve been doing hair for 15 years, as well as being a black woman with hair past my waist. Hair like this is possible with good genes and great maintenance. Maybe u should stop hating on women like Jada and take care of ur hair (which I doubt is this nice). Black women kill me, accusing some of us of lying about our hair because yours looks like black cotton on your head

Was there any need to speak to her that way? All you’re doing is ‘hating’ as well. You could have just said that it was her real hair and explained/shared how one could attain it. For your information I’ve got ‘black cottony’ hair which I love! I’d appreciate it if you stopped using such terms to refer to type 4 hair negatively. This is a black hair care forum in which our natural textures are meant to be celebrated, not stratified. Thanks.

What’s worse is the fact that a hairdresser said that — including the ‘good genes’ criteria. I sure hope my daughters never come across a hairdresser like her.

True. Jada has ALWAYS worn her hair naturally. She just happens to have a naturally loose curl pattern although in this pic, her curls looks a bit stretched out probably from a blow dryer.

and that caption about no wedding ring (which i know is mediatakeout, not bglh)…but many people don’t wear their wedding bands when exercising especially when running because your fingers can swell. stars in general seem not to care about wearing their wedding bands. it’s treated like fashion jewelry, sometimes you wear it, sometimes you don’t.

Exactly! I don’t wear jewelry when I’m at the gym! I do weight training and having weight pressing the metal on my fingers hurt; plus it may damage what I’m wearing.

I also put in my hair up on top of my hair to keep it out of the way of my workouts; most people I see at the gym do…

Wow, that sounds so vain! I’d be insulted if I stood before God with someone vowing to spend my life with them for better or worse, and then they turn around and treat the ring that’s a symbol of our love and devotion to ourselves and before God like fashion jewelry. People like that can afford to have a big rock for vanity purposes and an elegant band with an inset diamond. …But then again, it’s 2011, I’m probably by myself on that one.

Anyhow, great article Clutch, and I enjoy all of your articles too, BGLH!

The ring is a symbol of your love. It’s not love itself. So it really shouldn’t matter what you do with it as long as you are honoring the vows you made.

No, your love for your husband is a symbol of your love. A ring is a piece of jewelry. My husband and I have been married for three years. We never wore rings. You know why? Because we don’t like wearing rings. You people need to get over yourselves and judgement.

So, It wasn’t just me who noticed the filler or whatever it is in her cheeks while watching her show. Her cheeks are weird looking. I think its some kind of filler like Juvederm or something.

Her hair’s great, though and she has always rocked her natural even back to her rock band, Wicked Wisdom days.

A direct quote from a May, 2011 interview with celebrity stylist Marcia Hamilton, who has been Jada’s hair stylist for the past 4 years: “My fave style that I’ve created for Jada was the “Euro Bang. This was created with a full weave then I cut a bold, sharp fringe to frame her gorgeous eyes.”

I don’t know why some people believes because you are natural, you don’t wear pieces etc.….

And again celebrities do use pieces, extensions, wigs etc… to switch up and protect their hair and even everyday (some)people do so.

I dont know the jury is still out on Jada’s hair being all hers. I remember when she appeared( i think on the cover of Essence)after having really really short hair and she then all of a sudden had this long hair(she was advertising for Carol’s Daughter when it first appeared on the scene) I dont know but Ive always thought it was a fushion weave or something. Whatever the case she wears her hair exactly like this all the time. I love the look on her though.

She looks great and that is all that matters. Glad I am not in the spotlight like her. We all know that black women can and have long hair. My hair is a lot longer than hers and I get tired of people asking me if my hair is real. Not all black women wear weaves or wigs.

sorry, Ms Pinkett, Smith is of mixed heritage, like so many other of our famous folk. Jada has rocked all levels of hair-dos and don’ts, but her own natural hair is that oil and water straight wave kind. this IS her own hair. her hair grows fast, unless she cuts it. if you want to see early jada long hair…see her in the movie ‘The InkWell’.… she wasn’t well known then, but she was already an accomplished actress. and the ‘cotton hair comment’ was definitely out of place here. i laugh because we still say good and bad hair, like School Daze, but i… Read more »

Some of the comments that were written here are depressing. We are at it again — ascribing greater value to a certain type of hair. Jada’s hair is not superior to Whoopi’s nor to Nina Simone’s. Let’s pass the small issues and pat each other back’s for being the best we can be.

Is this really necessary? We see a photo of a celebrity doing something healthy (working out with her friends) with her hair down and curly, and instead enjoying this positive representation of a woman (whether black, white or other) we fall into the same ignorant and counter productive discussions of good hair, and miscegenation.

Jada Pinkett Smith is from Baltimore (as am I) and is well known here. Both of her parents are Black. Perhaps some family members many generations back were not, but most every Black person can say that. Quoting wikipedia does not prove a point as wikipedia is widely known to often be inaccurate b/c they gather information from other internet sources. (Doesn’t everybody know that?) I checked wikipedia for myself and it stated that she is of mixed ancestry but it did not specify what side of the family.

I thinm you have the issue witb Wikipedia backwards. The issue isn’t that people cite other sources (since thats how academics write papers, you know), the issue is that it is open source, meaning that ANYONE can edit it. Wikipedia has gotten significantly better since it was first established at moderating and letting others know when an article and entry on there is questionable. Things have changed in the last decade and though Wikipedia is not perfect, it has improved since the early days when no one could trust it. Either way, sources say she’s mixed.
