Cardi B is known to serve a great hair moment. Her hairstylist Tokyo Stylez is usually responsible for curating the iconic hair moments we adore whether it’s Cardi’s natural locs or added pieces. As of lately, Cardi has been consistent with her at-home hair regimen in an effort to prevent postpartum hair loss after giving birth to her second child this past September with her husband Offset. 

Over the weekend, Cardi took to Twitter to show the progression of her mane. In the proverbial bathroom selfie, Cardi shows her mane. “So I’ve been so consistent with my hair mask routine and drinking alkaline water, and look how much my hair has grown,” Cardi tweeted. “I was so scared of my hair falling out after my son’s birth because I’d been growing it for years now, so I made sure to keep up with it and I actually gained hair.”

But of course, she received some backlash from Twitter with many questioning her hair care regimen as well as her ethnicity. 

“That’s literally her genetics not a hair mask girl” one user tweeted. Not one to mince her words, Cardi replied, “ItS gEnEtICS! No, it’s proper hair maintenance. I have a hair texture that requires lots of love and maintenance.” “This [sic] pictures show my hair from childhood, high school & adult hood and since I started takin care of my hair the right way it has grown TREMENDOUSLY!” Cardi continued while including several pictures showing her hair at various lengths and conditions.

Cardi exchanged a few more words via Twitter before she took her concerns to Instagram. Captioning a photo, Cardi questioned, “Why every-time I post my natural hair I hear you’re MIXED you’re supposed to have long hair? That’s not true and very misleading. I been posting pics of my hair journey for years and being mixed don’t mean your hair is always long and curly, that wasn’t my case.”

“Since I was a child I have problems with managing my hair and a couple years ago I find different methods that work for me and look at my length now. They’ll try to make us believe our hair won’t grow this long it’s not true, “ she continued. “A lot of hair products we used back then wasn’t good for our hair but that’s all we had to choose from also we couldn’t afford to get to the salon regularly, if at all. Now everybody is getting better options, making affordable GOOD products, learning from natural hair YouTube and TikTok about how to care for our hair better.”

“I want women of color with tighter curl patterns to know that you don’t have ‘BAD HAIR’ there’s no such thing as bad hair.” Cardi added, “And “good” hair don’t mean a certain texture. ALL HAIR IS GOOD. Check out my pinned story “HAIR DAY” and I can’t wait to show ya more of my hair care routines.”

This isn’t the first time Cardi dropped a hair care regimen that sent the internet into a frenzy. A year or so ago, she released her avocado mask which also features eggs, honey, bananas, Argan oil, and mayonnaise. Many tried it and gave Cardi’s mixture a great review.
