We are all too familiar with the Black girl struggle of getting your hair braided. The agony of several hours in the chair (unless you are Porsha Williams) coupled with the process of taking our your own braids can be a total nightmare.
But clearly not for Lupita Nyong'o. The Black Panther star is as humble as them come. She shared an Instagram photo of taking down her braids to let her natural curls lose — and the internet is totally freaking out.
See for yourself below:
The 36-year-old actress captioned her photo, "out with the old, in with the older!" So, if Lupita can take her own braids out, we guess we can too!
We wonder what new hairstyle she'll debut at the highly anticipated Black Panther debut — or the remainder of awards season in general.
