Sanaa Lathan’s Hair Growth Journey From Bald To 2021

Sanaa Lathan hair growth journey

It’s been 3 years since Sanaa Lathan did the big chop, and her hair has come a long way.

Sanaa went bald for her role in Nappily Ever After, a Netflix romantic comedy based on a novel written by Trisha R. Thomas, and has been showing off her hair growth with a few selfies here and there.

Her big chop was done at the end of 2017 and in September she posted what she called ‘her reveal”

Check it out:

Then a year later in October of 2018, she shared this selfie:

After a ton of protective styles and a whole lot of care, Sanaa shared this selfie in March 2019 just 5 months later.

She even went straight in April 2019:

In February of 2020 Sanaa celebrated two years since chopping her hair with a cute ponytail and bangs.

She wrote this caption:
Can’t believe it’s been 2 years since I shaved it all off. It’s been a long journey and I definitely have a new appreciation for my natural hair.

BUT I do need help though. It definitely ain’t easy! 😅 Thankful I have amazing people to help me take care of it. Check out Kim Kimble’s youtube tutorial for this natural twist-out style. Coming soon

and shared this picture:

This is December 2020:

You might be wondering what her update is for 2021? The truth is, we aren’t sure, sis is always rocking a protective style and she is yet to give us a peek at her natural hair today.

This is her braided style shared this month on Instagram.

So what’s her secret? We would say her hair growth was pretty normal for three years. We would also venture to say, Sanaa wears a ton of protective styles and keeps natural hair manipulation to a minimum.

But since it’s not a secret, Sanaa shared what worked for in her last hair update. She said:
3 years after shaving it off. Protective styles, braids, and almost no heat.
