“Why do we let everyone else tell us what we should look like?,” she posted. “How we should dress? How to wear our hair? What we can’t do based on our appearance or the color of our skin? Haven’t ever really worn my hair natural but I’m sick of straightening this magic,. I’m a black girl and I’m hella proud.”

We’ve watched the young star grow up on screen over the past decade styled in primarily blown-out tresses, with soft waves or sleek ponytails. We’re happy to see her come into her own and rock whatever the heck she wants – and right now, she is slaying these textured tresses.  Click through to check out more Insta-pics of her #teamnatural membership.
