The real tea is that.Porsha did not shave her hair off. In an interview with Essence she shared this:

“I really didn’t expect anybody to believe that I had actually shaved my hair,” 

My natural hair is pretty short because I’m playing Connie in the play, Two Can Play That Game. [My hairstylist] put a wig cap on me to put a full lace wig on, and before he did I snapped a shot and posted it.”

August of 2016 Porsha did get herself a cute pixie hair cut

Porsha says she is natural under all the wigs and that’s how she protects her natural hair. However, she also shared that she relaxes her edges.

  1. It makes you exactly what it is. Natural in the back and relaxed around the edges. Period. As long as you feel beautiful and achieve the look you’re going for AND still maintain healthy hair, who truly cares!

  2. I’m not even gonna lie and say I’m natural. I do believe in relaxing my undercut and edges while I rock these braids.
