Loretta Devine wants you to know that just because she knows the power of a wig, it doesn’t mean she doesn’t appreciate her own natural tresses. The hilarious veteran actress appeared on the “The Wendy Williams Show” Wednesday to talk about the new season of her hit NBC series, “The Carmichael Show.” But the conversation kicked off about hair and the magic of Hollywood after Wendy said, “I recognize you today! A lot of the times I don’t recognize you in the pictures because of the magic hair – we change our hair a lot!”

Devine revealed, “I have about 100 wigs so I can look however I want, whenever I want!” Her look for the day was a dark brown, side swept bob she thinks may have been from her role on This Christmas.

Later on in the interview, she also shared her love for her own teenie weenie afro.

“I can [also] wear my own hair. It’s brave to wear your own hair because people look at you like, ‘what the hell’?’ But, she said, “Ain’t nothing wrong with my nappy hair! I figure that way you’re not wondering what’s under the wig. This is it. It ain’t that strange.”

This isn’t the first time Devine has shared her love for her “nappy” hair. She’s also taken to Instagram to share a “good hair day” with her TWA.
