This past Friday, February 28 marked the end of Black History Month, and Love & Hip Hop Atlanta newcomer Bambi decided to show appreciation by giving fans a look at her roots — literally. Known for rocking the latest in wigs and weaves, the reality starlet gave fans a glimpse of her natural coif to close out the month.

Since it's the last day of black history month I'm showing y'all my nappy natural hair. You guys remember when I got this cut ... This is 6 months of growth,” she captioned a side-by-side photo of her short ‘do and her natural hair’s current state. The aspiring rapper added, “I would share With y'all a product I started using 4 months in, but they ain't send me no free s— yet.”

We have to admit that is some impressive hair growth, but we’re actually not that shocked that Bambi’s got quite the mane under all those extensions. Her new co-star, Rasheeda Frost, also has a ton of hair that she too keeps under wraps with stylish weaves and extensions.

Excessive exposure to light, heat, and chemicals can definitely damage natural hair, and with these ladies constantly in the spotlight — especially from the camera crew following them during the filming of their respective shows — it’s imperative that they keep their hair protected. And well, a wig and/or weave allows you to change up your style with minimal effort.

While we’d very much like to see Bambi rock her natural hair more often, we’re definitely digging the ombré curls she opted to flaunt for her birthday, Saturday March 1.

“#BamDay 3/1 #BlondeHair jus cuz I feel like having fun!@lanathestylist did dat,” she captioned the photo of her new ‘do.

Looking good, Bambs, and happy belated birthday!
