She’s going all natural! On Thursday, Aug. 9, Debra Messing showed fans her natural hair on Instagram and they were living for it. Debra stripped off her makeup to debut her curly locks and glowing skin in one of her most beautiful selfies yet.
“My hair in its natural state,” she captioned the photo and fans could completely relate to the actress’ frizzy ‘do. “Hey, that’s what my hair looks like too!! Yay!! #iamnotalone,” one fan said and another mentioned how brave it was for Debra to showcase her natural beauty. “This gives me courage ?I wake up everyday with that hair. You’re still beautiful.”
Debra, who often wore her hair straight on Will & Grace, has embraced her naturally curly locks before. On Tuesday, June 19, she posted a video of herself trying to tame her thick hair on a hot summer day. “Went curly today because — as all curly girls know — humidity + straight hair = disaster. But yay! It’s really, finally, summer,” she wrote in the caption.
Growing up with frizzy hair in Rhode Island was not easy for Debra. She previously mentioned on the Today show that she felt like “an original” because she was “literally the only girl in the school with curly, kinky hair.” But instead of hating what made her different, Debra learned how to use hair products to always keep her ‘do looking stunning.
“The turning point for me, I think, was learning about products and trying to make it not frizz… I found that the ponytail on top of the head at night was a miracle worker because it would kind of start to loosen the curl a little bit,” she shared. “I also learned about curling irons and doing just the top layer of it. Those are my tricks.”
