As many of us ladies know, our hair is essentially our crown and we wear it with pride. So when it comes time in a woman’s life where the thought of rocking a bald head comes into clear view, it’s one that both exhilarating and filled with doubt. What if I look like a man? What if my head shape is weird? What will my friends and family say? Hell, what will my man say?

Nevertheless, there’s plenty of women that have rocked baldies and looked absolutely gorgeous doing so. In a recent interview, Issa Rae shared her own experience of having a bald head and how it actually changed her life immensely.

In the footage, she details her hair journey, from her mom pushing her to rock her natural tresses as a kid. She even remembers going against her mother’s wishes to not get a perm and her hair falling out. Needless to say, after some time, Issa shaved her hair, used it as a marketing tool to promote Awkward Black Girl and the rest is history.

Press play and watch Issa explain how her baldie changed her life and gushing over fellow naturalistas like Teyonah Parris and Solange.
