‘I never liked having hair’

Doja Cat shaved her head and eyebrows and was candid about how happy she is with her decision to make the move.

The 26-year-old singer, whose real name is Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini, debuted her hair transformation on Instagram Live on Thursday. She told fans that she decided to shave her hair because she felt she “should never have hair anyway”.

“I, like, don’t like having hair. I never liked having hair. I can’t tell you once, from the beginning of my life, that I was like, ‘This is cool,'” Doja Cat told her followers directly during an Instagram live, which has since been shared on twitter. “I just don’t like having hair.”

The rapper’s decision to shave her head also stemmed from her frustration with wigs. She noted that she used to work out the pieces of hair, which would then “begin to slip and peel off my head”.

“I was working out but I couldn’t concentrate because I was more concerned with how I look and how my hair was and how to keep it adherent to my scalp,” she continued, adding that she can’t believe it took so long for her to “be like ‘shave your head'”.

Doja Cat also acknowledged that she rarely wore her hair naturally and that when she did, it was a “fucking nightmare”.

“You’ve seen me wear my natural hair. I had, like, two times when my hair would be down. I would straighten… There was a moment when it was natural, and I don’t even use natural because I don’t feel like it and it’s just a nightmare, man,” she said.

The 26-year-old shared her happiness with her decision, revealing that she “has never felt so happy”.

“I’m really enjoying this… I’ve never felt so happy… It’s really funny how the effect of getting my hair out of my head has influenced me positively,” she continued.

Speaking directly to her fans and followers, the “Mulher” singer also acknowledged all the things she could do now that she no longer has to worry about her hair, like swimming, surfing and exercising. Another benefit of her new hairstyle is that it will allow wigs to “lay flatter if I want to wear a wig”.

“That’s just better, it’s much better,” he added.

After debuting her new hairstyle, Doja Cat decided to take her waxing a step further, with the rapper moving on to using a razor, shaving cream and a hand mirror to shave her eyebrows on Instagram Live.

Though she seemed pleased with the results, she did notice at one point that her makeup artist had texted her to say they were on their way after realizing what the rapper was about to do.

On social media, Doja Cat fans supported her new look, with many applauding the singer for adopting a hairstyle she is comfortable with.

“I’m actually loving the bald Doja Cat,” one person tweeted, while another said, “I have a complex relationship with my hair and that’s refreshing. She looks beautiful either way and I hope she keeps moving forward with whatever she wants to do with her hair.”

“Good for her! [There’s] something powerful about breaking free from the norm when it comes to hair. Whether rocking your natural or shaving it. I know this is like a weight on her shoulders,” wrote another.
