Joanna Gaines Shares Pic of Her Natural Hair – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth
Joanna Gaines usually shows off long, smooth waves on the screen, but she does give fans a glimpse into her natural hair texture.
The “Fixer Upper: Welcome Home” star just shared a very relatable photo on her Instagram story that shows how much natural volume her hair has before it’s styled.
“It takes about 1.5 hours to tame this mane. And since it’s an unveiling day, I’ll take care of it, ”she captioned the photo.
This isn’t the first time Gaines has rocked her natural hair texture on Instagram.

In November, streaks of her natural strands were featured in a light-hearted post where she recreated an adorable childhood photo with a missing tooth.
“Not much has changed and I will probably regret this photo, but worth saying again, kids … the world needs who you are supposed to be!” she wrote in the caption.
Former HGTV star and current lifestyle brand mogul, 43, has spoken in the past about the importance of keeping things real on social media rather than just presenting a so-called perfect picture of yourself.
As her fame grew, she said she was tempted at times to just share an idealized view of herself and her family with Instagram followers.
“I could feel insecurity creeping in, and posting a photo was no longer an act of enjoying the moments in life but a calculated decision,” Gaines wrote in a 2019 column for Magnolia Journal. “Everybody I criticized the image for messy backgrounds or a blurry smile. “
Now she values more authenticity on social media and avoids comparing herself with others.
“After all, I am also aware of when the red flags of comparison or fear move in,” she wrote. “My best next step is to stop scrolling and put my phone down. This is much harder for me when I’m not in a great place in my head or heart, but moving on down the rabbit hole never helps.”
