Rochelle Humes just showed off her natural hair for the most heartbreaking reason

Let's all show our support for Rochelle! ?  

With the year almost coming to an end, there are tonnes of celebrity hair transformations happening. However, you might not have expected this one: Rochelle Humes is going natural (and it’s for the best reason!).

The star doesn’t often change up her hairstyle and is often spotted with sleek strands, yet now she’s bidding farewell to her heated styling tools and finally embracing her curls. And guess what? She’s become our latest natural hair hero for it!

This is what has inspired Rochelle Humes to show off her natural curls

#GoingBackToMyRoots ?My four year old little girl Alaia has been telling me for a while that she doesn't like her curly hair, at first (as us Mums do) I didn't think it was a big deal. Once I realised this wasn't a phase I asked her why she didn't like her curls. It broke my heart when she told me it was because she didn't look like a Princess, and I quote "I don't Mummy because Elsa and Rapunzel have long straight hair". It then dawned on me that maybe this issue started closer to home because, all she has ever known is her Mummy to style her hair straight, when in fact mine is naturally curly too. So moving forward into the New Year I've decided to finally embrace everything that makes me ME. She is already over the moon that we have 'matching hair'!! My curls are a far cry from what they used to be but, I'm hoping with less heat and a little TLC they will come back to life. So this is for you Alaia-Mai, Mummy's hair IDOL ??? #curlslikeus

We’re used to seeing the 28-year-old wearing her chocolate brown locks straightened for TV and award shows, but she unexpectedly took to Instagram to show off her natural curls. Alongside the gorgeous selfie, Rochelle shared the inspiring reason behind her decision to embrace her natural hair’s texture – everyone take a moment to read her message!

Yep, rather than putting down straighteners for a day, the star detailed in the post’s caption that she wants to go back to her curly roots for good. Why? For the sake of her daughter, Alaia-Mai, of course!

Editor’s tip: Thinking of going natural yourself and want to make your natural coils pop? Then try using the TIGI Bed Head Foxy Curls Contour Cream! This nifty product defines curls and controls frizz, leaving your locks looking their best.

Rochelle explained that her habit of straightening her hair, as well as a lack of hair diversity in films, has made Alaia-Mai not like her own hair. So, in an effort to show her daughter how beautiful curly hair can be, the star will be flaunting her own from now on (as she rightfully should!).

As much as we love Rochelle with sleek strands, we fully support her decision to go natural and can’t wait to see her slaying the pineapple. Bring on the curl revolution!
