Taraji P. Henson, AKA Cookie Lyon, keeps us glued to the TV Wednesday night’s to see her over-the-top character on "Empire." We also find ourselves glued to her Instagram page to get glimpses of her natural hair, which is usually in cornrows and covered while she’s working. Gorgeously long and healthy she decided to feed our hair envy with a few shots of what looks like loosened pin curls tousled and shaken for an even more dramatic effect.

Taraji captions the pics, “#healthyhair #naturalhair #tossedbyme and we are loving the volume and movement that her natural hair has. Her second pic is a teaser with a top with lemons (An Ode to Lemonade, maybe?) her hair is still tousled and free looking more like relaxed hair than natural but that’s the beauty of natural hair ladies…it is so versatile!

We see you Taraji and we are loving those care free curls. Wanna replicate this look? Start with straightend hair and either add pin curls or flexi rods. Loosen and tousle or shake for a dramatic and sexy effect.
