TV talk show host Tyra Banks posted this pic on her twitter page last week of her real hair which she blurred in Photoshop.

She tweeted:

"Here's me rockin my REAL hair, had 2 blur it so its still a surprise on Sept 8! Who else is sportin their real hair that day?"

Tyra has challenged sistahs everywhere to put aside their slave hair and rock their real hair on September 8 (Real Hair Day) when the new season of her popular talk show premieres.

Although I rock my real hair every day, I feel like doing something different with it on Real hair Day. Maybe I'll shave off one side of my head and post a pic. In fact, ladies, send in a pic if you rock your real hair on Sept. 8, so I can post them!

Can't wait to see Tyra's (and your) crowning glory!

    Unless she is going to rock her real hair everyday does this "hype" really make any sense. Why all the teasing just show your real darn hair when the show airs. She's acting like her wearing her real hair is going to cure world hunger. Some of us wear our real hair everyday... some don't.... is it really that serious... and if so why go back to the weave.

    Whatever Tyra. And Congrats on your Emmy.

  • Charles

  • mizzdallas

    @ Mizz

    Where does one go to see ratings. I can never find them.


    Its not fair to say Wendy is beating her when Tyra show is on hiatus... but you know I love my Wendy so I hope she holds it down.

    @ Sandra - define "real hair". So, are you rocking your "real" hair sans perm, Ms. Rose or your "real" chemically straightened hair?

    All this talk about slave/fake/weave/natural hair is just ridiculous. Rock what looks good on you and be happy and go about your merry way!

  • KaraZ

    I rock real hair all the time, whether it grows from my scalp or from someone else's, it's fugging real 100% human hair... :D

    I was thinking the exact smae thing? Please explain...I don't wear a weave, but I do rock a relaxer, touch-up on Thursday, can I send a picture? Ow!

  • starr

    If its grown from ya head...its ya real hair...thats how i think about

    I agree with isc...its not that serious. Maybe she think its serious cuz of the industry she's in, she wears a weave 90% of time, but thats not the case for some us. I won't be sending in my pic Cuz i wear my real hair everyday...never wore a weave...not braids not extentions. I don't have anythign against weave....but she's making seem like not wearing your real hair is a bad thing. I will admit some people have issues with their real hair...but thats a personal problem. I'd like to believe that there are more people wearing there real hair on a everday i really think its not that serious
