Beyoncé Knowles-Carter is showing off her long, healthy, real natural hair and just how well her Cécred hair care line works on her natural hair. The Grammy Award-winning singer posted an archival video to her Instagram on Sunday, dubbed “Cécred Wash Day” by Beyoncé and many others, to share her wash day ritual using the products and send a message to fans. She starts off the video saying, “Now that Cécred is known for the quality and what it does for your hair, I think it’s about time I show y’all what it does for my hair.”

Beyoncé also made sure to address any criticism about her own hair saying, “The sigma and misconception is that people that wear wigs don’t have healthy and long hair. That’s some bulls*** cause it ain’t nobody’s business.” Beyoncé first launched her acclaimed hair care line Cécred on February 20, and it boasted of strengthening and soothing all types of hair, as well as protecting it from damage. While many fans flocked to buy the products, some folks worried about the singer’s own natural hair journey and use of the line.

God always has the final say!” said the Yonkers legend, who was also nominated in 2021. “Thank you to my fans all over the world!

He scored the winner against Barcelona in El Clasico on Sunday, taking his tally to 17 goals in La Liga this season. Bellingham also helped Real Madrid beat Manchester City on penalties in their Champions League quarter-final last week.
