Nicki Minaj Reveals her Natural Hair on Twitter?

• Oct 1, 2012

Nicki Minaj is one of the biggest wig aficionados in pop music today, but apparently she wants us to know that the wigs are optional, not necessary. Yesterday the rapper tweeted a photo of her hair being styled with the caption, “No chemicals. No perm.” The photo shows her hairdresser pulling a handful of long, healthy-looking straightened hair. Click below to check it out.

A couple months ago Wendy Williams made a similar move when she posted a childhood picture of herself sporting long braids, and stated that she’d never had a perm.

While it’s encouraging that so many black female celebrities (including Lil Mama, Toya Carter and Angela Simmons) have healthy heads of un-chemicalized hair beneath their wigs and weaves, it would be nice to see their curls and coils in public every once in a while.

What do you think of Nicki’s photo?

HAHAHA exactly! There’s no face! Where’s the face of Nicki @?! LMAO!!! Yeah, this a real joke lol. And Wendy Williams with her phony @ss will never wear her real hair out in public! She has serious issues with her natural hair! She’s spoken on it numerous times, and said that natural was not for her! Please. But I agree with the author of this story, on why can’t they show their natural hair out sometimes? And lol @ Wendy showing a “child” photo of herself! People’s hair changes from their childhood lol.

Well duh we all know that black women can grow long hair.ok we get it. But don’t say this is her hair if she is not showing her face.If this were say, Cher I would question it, if she were not showing her grill for the cam. Btw I have long hair, my hair is no where near Indian textured, in fact I hate Indian textured hair, I much prefer long hair with some grip, frizziness and kinky curl. But anyway Nicki is not full blooded black, but most of US Blacks are not in AMERICA and throughout the West… Read more »

Cher the singer? Cher’s hair is down to her butt and very straight. She has shown her real hair plenty of times on her old TV show. She’s half Indian, and her hair grows long. She wears wigs only for her concert shows like most entertainers do, but she sure doesn’t need a wig.

Nicki is actually Indian as well. Her natural hair isn’t kinky, it’s straight slightly silky with a sort of beach like wave to it. She is West Indian from what I have understood. Usually I don’t comment on race or nationality, but since you brought it up,just because someone is brown or dark skinned doesn’t mean their fully black, or African descent for that matter, in fact if you take a look at Nicki’s face, the phenotype she most resembles is Native American. Where as Cher looks more Greek. Eitherway, everyone jups on the Native American babd wagon oh and… Read more »

Yo ESMERALDA it was never that serious to go hard on Nicki like that.. she can’t hear you ! And beside even IF Nicki Minaj wanted to be like Lil’ Kim or not she’s still making that paper as Niki Minaj, still has her Barbs.. And what are you doing? trying your hardest to insult a celebrity over a website.. that could honestly care less Let Nicki Minaj Be Nicki Minaj I Don’t See The Issue.. Have You Ever Thought Maybe She Admires Kim? !!!!! Ohh and no perms or chemicals does make your hair grown longer and faster

Chile_Please!
Guest

Please, I agree with Esmerelda, who is entitled to her opinion. Nicki has dissed Kim plenty of times. How are you going to diss someone that you are supposedly a fan of like Kim did to Nicki? And yes, Nicki started that whole beef with Kim, and Kim just gave it back to her please. It’s all petty but it is what it is. Nicki should have just shown her face with the hair if she wanted people to believe her that much!

Colalover

Wow you talk like you know these two celebrites? Lol I can almost 110% gaurantee you most of the hype is just one publicity stunt after anotherbetween lil Kim and Nicki.
It’s only the sycophants who follow such utter, dramatized rubbish put on by attention seeking celebs like Nicki and lil kim.

LOL I spent the longest time figuring out where the picture was of her “natural’ hair.. I had no idea that the random chick with a stripped shirt had it.. hmm wonder why. Not sure what is more stupid this picture or me trying to figure out where it was.

Black folks are so self-centered and exaggerating. They believe their race is so great and that they can have straight, long hair even if unmixed just because it’s pretty. Imagine your girl “Nicki Minaj” and other Black chicks without those wigs, weaves and makeup…

@ Eve, your right it is negative. It is negative to post a pic of long hair with no face in the shot. Afterall, if the person posting it says its Nicki Minaj’s hair then it has to be, right? And, its the only positive way to go, the truth can only be negative.

Now, Eve, I support your right to your own opinion. However, posting your statement in a thread you clearly are not happy with is innapropriate trollish behavior. Why not find your internet happy place and post there? Afterall, it is the positive thing to do, right?

YES YES, of course this is her “OWN” natural hair.

I actually saw this picture posted by Nicki herself on her Instagram. Nicki stated on that picture that this was her hair without chemicals or perm. She has stated many times that she still allows the Dominican women in Queens to continue to care for her hair whenever she is back in NY. From looking at old pictures of her she always had good length to her hair long before she started wearing wigs. I think what she was showing is that she still has lengthy healthy hair without chemicals. Honestly, I also do not see what the constant comparison… Read more »

I am not a fan of Nicki Minaj, but I don’t hate her either. But,how has Nicki Minaj done anything different than any other famous person? She gave the biz a try like countless others and out of pure luck made it. Then she became a judge on American Idol and is selling her own perfume line, just like others have. More power to her for making money, but these days once your famous deals are literally thrown your way. There is nothing beyond signing on the dotted line, showing up when told to and collecting the money.

I don’t understand all the shade and hate thrown at Nicki? I just don’t get it? She’s doing what every other pop star is doing!? She’s created her own disturbing fashion. But she is doing her. She’s an excellent commedia dell’arte. Ikinda dig the theatrical aspect of what she’s doing. I think she’s shown us her unique brilliance. Yes I can see where It’s very pretentious, annoying, but I kind of think she’s going towards being annoying,crazy,unstable,disturbingly sexual.

No one cares how you dress, you proly look sloppy no where near as good as Nicki. Just keep being immature, see how far that gets ya.:-) I can’t stand jealous people, make it happen for yourself, maybe then you wouldn’t have to talk shit on line? Hiding behind a computer screen. I am sure if you told Nicki that to her face she’d kick your target clothes buying butt! Go buy something nice with your EBT card.

Sounds like you are insecure and jealous of her fame beauty and suceess. I pity you. Hopefully you get the help you need. She never did anything to you, so it seems you have an anger issue. So what if she is fake, that is her business not yours. 🙂

I don’t know who whispered horse shit in your ear but that’s not the definition of theater at all. You actually said…“Theater is about being shocking, different, over the edge.” You must be joking! There is nothing at all wrong with going over the edge, being different or shocking but going off the deep end as a steady diet just doesn’t work..for anyone…not the best of them. A person in show business cannot overdo it all the time and expect to be believable. Being shocking is part of your repertoire if you’re good and a versatile actor. If acting and… Read more »

I don’t understand why you don’t think this is her hair. She is not black anyway, but black girls still can have long hair as well.

Besides, she always be more famous than everyone on here.

Onika Maraj (Nicki Minaj) is definitely of *African-Trinidadian descent and *Indian-Trinidadian descent.

Yes, black women can grow long, healthy hair. But it, well at least my own hair, demands a lot of care and gentleness- or else, it will repay me with a galore of naps and tangles. Our hair is wonderful overall. Just requires love and great patience, -ha 🙂

Anaj
Guest

Niki is not African she is of Indian decent from Trinidad

Colalover
Guest

Oh ok I figured she was East Indian, you know how African Americans like to claim every brown celebrity. We have a tendancy to do that. My ex was from Trinidad, he was mostly Indian, but he also had a good percentage of African blood. Proly 20% black. I just know Nicki is not really black. Everyone just wondered why she didn’t show her face. Here’s the thing, the industry fat cats were the ones who sold Nicki as African American when she’s really Indian.

Anaj
Guest

Niki id not of African decent she is of Indian decent (as in India )and she’s Trinidadian. So that’s why she has long hair ok.

Melissa
Guest

Trinidadians are of African descent. Look it up — Minaj is of Afro-Trinidadian descent. And people of African descent can grow long hair.

arusi
Guest

I just had to comment to correct some people. Nicki minaj is a “dougla” as we would call her here in the caribbean. It means that she is of African AND Indian descent or is biracial. I kept reading comments saying that she was Indian. Her facial features also don’t show her being purely Indian.

Colalover
Guest

Thanks for correcting us. In my opinion Nicki Manaj appears East Indian, but I’m sure she has black in her too. I consider her East Indian looking. I just don’t see the West African traits in her? Looking at old pictures without her wigs on, I’d mistake her for pure Indian. But I’m never surprised when someone non-black has black in them 🙂
She’s of average cuteness, nothing amazing.

Eva
Guest
First off, Nicki’s from Trinidad. Not East Indian. Second, Nicki has been Bitting people style since she came on the scene. Why is nicki getting so much hate from people is “Because” She runs her mouth a lot like she have balls. But when someone calls her out on her Bullshit. All of a sudden she plays the victim. That’s why nobody respects her. She is Black. That’s true. Plus, it’s my opinion. So why you care about somebody that doesn’t pay your Bills?. Why don’t you get a Life and stop with this Nicki Being your “Imagining Friend”. Nicki… Read more »

You seriously don’t see any African traits in Nicki Minaj? Her nose is a straight-up giveaway.

Colalover

That is an Indian nose maybe caucasion. Def not West African.

Santoria
Guest

Sure 🙂
One does not have to be presented with West African features in order to be of the descent. Many blacks have features which are various in terms of hair, nose structure, lips, eyes–you name it! We are all diverse. People believe I am a Spaniard, Hawaiian, or some South American Islander. I actually do not know altogether what I consist of, though I am aware that I have a great amount of black within me. Should I not call myself black; I am of everything. I am a human.

Why are black people so obsessed with mixes and what someone’s ethnic origins are????

Rebecca
Guest

Why would you say such a thing? I think almost everyone is concerned of someones ethnic origins…just out of curiosity. A lot of African Americans aren’t entirely AA ya’know!? My best friend had an identity crisis because she didn’t know what she was nor who she was. Some people are mixed with so many things until they don’t know what to call themselves.

Lmina

Everyone is, not just blacks.

Kristy Khan
Guest

I am Trinidadian and as far and I am aware Nicki is mixed race, Afro Caribbean and East Indian.. Dougla as we say in Trinidad which will result in her having extremely long hair. I have seen her mom and her mom looks mixed which will add to her hair being even straighter and longer than usual. I have alot of Dougla friends who all have long .…very long thick curly hair.

JANINE

if you see Nicki’s parents you know that she is definitely part African. She is mixed Trinidadian Indian. And she has indian looking hair. i have seen pics of here as a child. This pic does not look like here hair at all.

The photo mentioned in the article seems to have been replaced with Nicki in a black wig?

How do we really know that’s her?

ohhhhh I believe its her length cause nikki minaj is a Trinidadian by birth and is a dougla (indian/African mix)

Jezebel

Is the question here whether or not Nicki Minaj’s hair is long? Maybe it is or maybe it isn’t. Either way why post a pick claiming the hair shown is yours without your face in it? It proves nothing, afterall. And, to all those unaware, we all came from Africa. It is the cradle of life for all of us regardless of skin color or hair texture.

In my honest opinion is she sucks and shes a Lady GaGa wannabe and I don’t like her either.They are so fake.How do we know if THE PICTURE IS nicki minaj and not some one else?

Really Nicki has so many Characters that we don’t know who that real Nicki is. I feel like she’s hiding something real deep. I use to like her. Then I didn’t like her. But now i feel Bad for her. She doesn’t know who she is inside. So she puts on a Mask to cover up her real self. But people is hating on her for the at that she’s Acting not Feeling.

Nicki Minaj’s real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She is of mixed Afro-Trinidadian and Indo-Trinidadian descent, Maraj being a very common East Indian name.

Trinidad has a very racially mixed population so a mix like hers is not unusual.

Demographics of Trinidad and Tobago

Indo- Trinbago 35.4%
Afro-Trinbago 34.2%
Mixed 22.8%
European Trinbago 0.7%
Chinese Trinbago 0.3%
Other 6.6%

Eva
Guest

Isn’t Trinidad from the West Indies right close to Virgin Island and Jamaica?. If I’m wrong then my Bad. And if she mixed with Chinese then why is she wearing fake Hair. Asian People have too much hair to wear weaves. I should know because I’m a Japanese descendent.

How do we know if that is her hair or not we can’t see her face.

ShayE
Guest
Why is everyone talking about her race? Just because she is mixed does not mean that’s her hair… I know many mixed races that cannot grow their hair past their shoulders. It’s not about race that automatically gives you long hair, it’s your hair care regimen. The question asked about this photo was “What do you think about Nicki Minaj hair?” In my opinion I don’t think that is her. My reason is her face is cut out of the photo. Why try to prove something to us if we cannot prove the photo is you. She also showed another… Read more »
Jezebel
Guest

I agree with you for the most part, ShayE. Race has no part in how long or fast anyones hair grows. But, neither does a hair care regimen. A hair care regimen can make hair as healthy and beautiful as possible from day to day, but it will not determine how long it can get. It ultimately is all about genetics. Check out your family history, I am sure you will find proof in photos of past relatives.

ShayE
Guest

Yes that is so true. Genetics plays a big role in hair growth.

anyone who believes that the head at the other end of that hair is nicki does not possess an iota of common sense! the anonymous person in this picture has long hair, but this is no more nicki than it is me. i’m not saying nicki doesn’t have long lovely hair beneath those wigs and weaves because I don’t know her.

Not necessarily. Weave protects your natural hair and as much as they do changing hair color and styles that hair would be fried!!!!

I have to say if that is her hair it’s really pretty I would just rather see all of it like the part in the middle and maybe she doesn’t wear it out because of the damage it can put on her hair

lol to the people saying they are not buying it may i remind u nicki minaj is originally from trinidad (the caribbean) and is of east indian and african descent like myself which means her hair is naturally curly… my hair is thick and naturally curly (i straightened it out now) and it has grown past mid-back length several times! so why cant she have long hair -.- if a black woman really takes vare of her hair it can grow!!!!

Jay

Being Trinidadian does not guarentee long, curly or even thick hair. People are brainwashed into thinking just because you’re caribbean or west Indian you are suppose to have a certain hair type. It varies from thick and nappy to soft and curly. If people visit these islands they will see all the different hair types and not assume.

lovely
Guest

Um, ms shay.. Why would it matter if her roots are poofy and the rest is shiny? When you have naturally curly hair and straighten it out thats what happens after it being straight for awhile
At least mines..
Especially since when you wash your face, even if you tie your hair up, water gets to your edges
Thus the edges revert…

Karin

Your hair looks so beautiful! i’m jealous, i have straight dark brown hair, shoulder lenght and i can’t make it grow 🙁

Trinity
Guest

Hey Sydney, just to correct you a bit, Nicki is not a dougla as we call it here in Trini. Nicki said in an interview that her mother is African and her father is part Indian and African. Which means he is the dougla. And since she obviously took her mothers looks, well she got her hair too, with a bit of softness to it thanks to her father. However, a dougla she is not. Look at her brother’s hair.

Shay
Guest
That the first thing ignorant ppl say. Race has nothing to do with hair growth. Only ppl that has no hair says that. Regardless where you from, if your skin is dark your black. Ppl gon call it how they see it. The argument is the fact that she not showing her face but wants to prove she has hair. A picture could have been taken from farther distance to show her face, but it wasnt. This pic doesn’t look like your hair. Its shiny on the strands and your roots look poofy and dry. You did not prove anything… Read more »

Ummm, here are all the ways that you are wrong hun. It is really annoying how many people dont understand the difference between race and nationality, so let me school you right quick. Mexican is not a race, it is a nationality. However, black is. You can be Mexican and black. You can be from any part of this world and be black. “Just because your darkskinned doesn’t mean your black dumbass” « Actually yes it does, why? Because that is how racial groups (black specifically)are classified.. Soooo, try educating yourself before calling someone else a dumbass

@D-A… I read your statement and at first I thought you were wrong about the definition of “ethnicity”. But, having read definitions from several different resources I can say you are wrong and right. While race can come under the heading of “ethnicity”, so can nationality as mentioned by “Adara”. And, the term “race” does exist in our vocabulary to strictly to discern between the fair skinned and darker skinned among humanity. I can understand your want to abolish the term and make us all one “human race”,but considering that racial issues are not resolved across the world it is… Read more »

@Jimmy… Is that what the science you speak of is actually trying to say, that race does not exist? In my opinion what this science was trying to do is dispel the myth that dark skinned people are less (or not at all) human as compared to light skinned people. So, yes scientifically there are no racial distinctions. However, as you stated race is a “socially constructed concept”;and it does still exist but solely in this manner.

There is no such thing as ‘race.’ It is a socially constructed concept. It has been scientifically discredited. I think you might mean ethnicity.

Well, all human life originated from Africa. From that point humans migrated all over the world. And, due to the evolutionary process instigated by the environmental factors of whatever part of the world a paticular group of humans their color changed. So, basically we are all black.

race has everything to do with hairgrowth. full black people do not have long hair that can grow mid-back length, lets just say it is rare to find, unlike other races, eg caucasean, indian, latin etc…

Jezebel

@Jo23…Actually, you are misinformed Jo23. Even today, hair types amongst Africans vary, from straight and wavy to thick and densely curled. In fact, Eritrean’s are a perfect example of this variance.

Kasey
Guest
Uh No, Jo23. The reason you most like don’t see many black women with longer hair is that many get chemical treatments which damage the hair. Many black woman however can and do grow their hair long. It has nothing to do with race, it’s how you treat your hair. Example, as a child my hair was down to my butt, then my mom relaxed it and it broke off to above my shoulder. For years I could only grow it an inch or two past my shoulders (plus I used flat irons almost every day). Once I realized how… Read more »

Also if you take the time to look at YouTube, or join natural hair communities you’ll see tons of women who either (i) love their hair shorter and rock their natural hair that way, or (ii) grow their hair out to lengths you (and by you, I mean YOU) never though were possible.

I see that some people are misinformed. I can’t say that the picture is of the celebrity or not and actually I really don’t care but I will say that black women can grow hair long and healthy and it has nothing to do with race. My 12 year old daughter currently has hair down to her butt when it is flat ironed. In it’s curly state, it is big hair just past her shoulders. So please don’t get it twisted people, we black women can achieve long lengths just like anyone else as long as we take care of… Read more »

Agreed. My sister used to be natural and her hair came down to her butt WITHOUT being straightened. We have the same parents (we’re both black American) and she’s dark, and I’m light and her hair has looser curls than myself and is thicker. She got pulled into the chemical relaxing mess and now her hair is shoulder length. I got my hair relaxed when I was little and had no say so in it, but now I am natural and my hair is very coily and thick, but my strands are rather fine. Goes to say race, color, etc,… Read more »

It’s a damn shame that black ppl argue about race being a factor and ridiculing their own own ancestors. This article has absolutely nothing to do with race!! The question is “What do you think of Nicki’s pic?” Im thinking.. “Where is Nicki?” If you google her showing her natural hair, her face is anonymous. And we All…Know Nicki is not camera shy!! Google another celebrity showing their natural hair and you can see who you’re looking at. So for you ignorant blacks talking about race, you need to accept the fact that your black and come back to reality!!… Read more »

Vivian! All your features are black. If they weren’t you would look white or asiAn. Hey guess what you look black to me..stop with the I’m light skin so I don’t look black. Black comes in all colors, shapes and sizes. I’m sure if you took that weave out you would look more black.….Get over yourself

Lol This article was i guess entertaining to say the least..

Cheryl
Guest

Got nothing to do with chemicals either. I am black with relaxed waist length hair and it never grew that long before I straightened it. It’s about you personally and how you care your hair.

Jezebel
Guest

@Cheryl… Yes, how you take care of your hair is factor to some degree. But, a greater factor is genetics. I am not sure of how you are judging why your hair did not grow before getting a relaxer, but there is plenty of scientific evidence that relaxers do more damage than good. Just like when dark hair is dyed blonde, relaxers damage and weaken the hair shaft to create the desired result. So, while your hair is straighter it is not stronger and with repeated relaxers over time will just get weaker.

Ha! Seeing is believing Nicki. I need to see the hair on your head, not from your stylist holding it out.

I never see black females with long hair hate on each other, but Black females that don’t have long hair always hate on Black girl’s with long hair! I don’t understand the short hair don’t care chicks lol! I don’t never see white people go the distance to talk shit about each other hair like Black people do each other. We as black people have to deal with enough with other races hating on us, so that mean no Black people should be adding to the negative comments of people of the same race. Just be better then everybody else… Read more »

to start with I do not think that that is Nikki’s hair.….only because there is no pic of her face.…..and hair grows base upon how we as a person take care of it

Honestly…if I had gorgeous hair I would not be covering it up with crazy ass weave.… I would be rocking my beautiful hair… unless I was hell bent on creating an illusion.…a character that pays my bills. Then MAYBE.… I don’t believe her hair is this long cause she need to show her face and scalp…I am not convinced!

I am in total awe reading these comments from our black women. Is this really how we treat each other? It’s enough the world view us (black women) as ignoranant, aggressive,loud, ghetto…etc…etc so why are we making it easy for them to continue to think this way? It’s sad to hear black women degrade each other by calling them everything but a child of god. A bitch is a female dog, not your sister. Instead of tearing each other down, let’s encourage and love each other. Black is black and your hair doesn’t make you no more or less of… Read more »

Interesting, did someone say africans cant grow their hair mid back? Have that person ever seen a real african rastafarian? Have u ever been to ethiopia? And from what i deduce from all the comment is that, pple think if u are from africa, then u must have a dark skin and a kinky hair, plz its not so. Egyptians are africans, namibians are african.…..

Natashea
Guest

True, but there is also nothing wrong with dark skin & kinky hair. Good hair is healthy hair; kinky, coily, curly, wavy or straight, it doesnt matter. As long as it is healthy its GOOD.

Jezebel
Guest

Well said Natashea! All this bickering about who can grow their hair long perpetuates the stereo type that a woman’s hair should only look one way. It should not matter if your hair is kinky or straight, long or short as long as it is healthy.

Just a thought.…I am not saying that black people cannot grow long hair.…but (1) the face is not being shown in the pic and (2) I am from Trinidad and still live there…just like nicki is and I can tell everyone that Nicki is mixed.…her mother is what you would call African American and her father is of East Indian descent.…meaning his ancestors are originally Indian from India.

alice

It may be more appropriate to say her mother was Afro-carribean or a carribean of African decent since she’s not Amerian.

cher

True

Jennifer

Most African Americans have mixed ancestry so that doesn’t have anything to do with it.

Nicki probably has top beauticians caring for her hair, plus she was basically using protective styles (wigs) for a very long time.

Black women can grow long hair, there doesn’t have to be some exotic mix in their back ground for it to happen, its all about proper hair care.

Elle

My cousin is of the same mixture from Trinidad, they have the same hair texture.

Who’s hair is it? Its a picture receiving the publicity nicki is obviously gaining in regards to her hair. Who cares. Short, long, kinky, straight, as long as its healthy and even if it ain’t its your/her hair.

That picture must be a lie.Unless I see her face and her real natural hair i dont believe thats her.

CJA

I don’t get why people are saying this can’t be Nicki Minaj. as naturals we embrace protective low manipulative hairstyling and if pulling a cap over your head and putting on a wig everyday isn’t low manipulative I don’t know what is. Are we really going to say that just because it’s Nicki Minaj she cant have natural hair? When she was wearing all the bright wigs she was a fake,now she’s natural it’s still fake…my mind is blown!
