Fitness Guru Massy Arias Embraces Her Natural Curls With The Big Chop

After years of perms, heat and relaxers, she's had enough!

Published December 14th

Fitness guru and CoverGirl model Massy Arias traded in her flatiron and opted to embrace her natural roots. 

The celebrity fitness guru revealed via IG that she always wanted to have straight hair to be like her mom. But recently she decided to do the big chop and is embracing her natural curls for the sake of her daughter, Indi

"I got tired of straightening my hair with heat, perms, and putting my scalp under so much stress being that I have mild scalp psoriasis," she wrote.

When I was 9 years old I asked my mom why my hair was curly and hers straight. I’m sure being a busy mom and having a different hair type than mine, my mom did what she thought was best for her lifestyle. Yesterday I chopped it all off so I can be all natural. Because I am more than my hair! I want indi to understand her heritage and relate to me. I want her to feel beautiful in her own skin. I got tired of straightening my hair with heat, perms, and putting my scalp under so much stress being that I have mild scalp psoriasis. So let’s see how I adapt to my natural hair and see these curls come in. STAY TUNED FOR THE YOUTUBE VIDEO WHERE I’LL BE SHARING THE WHOLE PROCESS WHERE @amenabelledesoleil CHOPS IT UP. What products do you guys recommend? Let’s hear them. I need tons of advice and I’m sure I have lots to learn. Thank you @simplybiancaalexa @sunkissalba for all the advice. To my @mawarriors let’s kill week 2 of our challenge! I spent all day cleaning up, grocery shopping, and cooking. This week I’m so focused to do better than ever!

Por mi hija! Cuando tenia 9 años le pregunté a mi mamá que porque mi cabello era rosado y el de ella era lacio. Yo se que mi madre hizo lo mejor que ella pensó que necesitaba en ese momento y allí viene ron los alisados y tratamientos para alisar el pelo. Ayer decidí cortármelo todo para comenzar una jornada en la cual volveré a mi estado natural. Yo quiero que mi hija se identifique conmigo. Que sepa que ella al natural es bella. Esperen el video donde les muestro el proceso. Llore, reí, y cuando llegue a casa encontré un esposo que le encantó mi decisión y ama como me veo. Gracias @amenabelledesoleil por el corte de pelo y tantos consejos. Esta será una jornada muy interesante. No se nada de cabello natural, así que estaré aprendiendo de mis amigas @simplybiancaalexa y @sunkissalba que ya me están dando muchísimos consejos. Tienen ustedes productos favoritos para pelo natural? A ver? Tomo notas! #hijadecristo

Although Massy is still figuring out how to work with her curls and which products to use, this fit mom doesn't regret this new look at all.

"Yesterday I chopped it all off so I can be all natural. Because I am more than my hair! I want indi to understand her heritage and relate to me. I want her to feel beautiful in her own skin," she shared.

The brains behind Massy's new cut was Amena BelledeSoleil. They filmed a video of her big chop journey together, and Massy plans to post the full YouTube video soon. 

We can't wait to see it and wish Massy luck on the natural lifestyle!
