Solange Knowles has been getting a lot of love for her fashion sense and natural hair, but apparently the DJ has also been getting criticized by some natural hair women themselves. After noticing these comments on her Instagram photos and blog posts about her hair, Solange took to Twitter to address the topic.

"It is a rare occasion that I ever bring the conversation of "Hair" onto twitter or anywhere for that matter. But just wanted to share something...After noticing and pointing out the constant hair comments on my instagrams, someone sent me this ....http://modernemeid.tumblr.com/post/24577741089/are-we-going-too-far-when-it-comes-to-other-peoples," she writes over a stream of tweets.

"I’m only going to say a few things. I cut my hair ALL off 4 times in my life all for very different reasons....I only reiterate this because this is nothing new for me. This 4th time did not define me, just as it had not the previous 3 times. I've never painted myself as a team natural vice president. I don't know the lingo and I don't sleep with a satin cap...However, I did notice when I picked out my hair, I kept seeing feedback about needing a "twist out". Connnnfesssioonnn: I HATE twist outs. Correction, I hate the way they look on me. SO I end up always picking them/steaming them out," Solange continues.

"Look, all I’m saying is. My hair is not very important to me....so I don't encourage it to be important to you. I’m very emotional today (involving something else), so I’m letting the momentum of that help me to express the fact that...I don’t want to talk about no damn hair.....no mo. (AND maybe I’m biased, but I agree 100% with the article I posted…)"

We know how much can be wrapped up in a woman's look or how she feels about her own hair, but do you think it goes too far sometimes? Do you agree with Solange that hair shouldn't be so important to us?
