Doja Cat says she’s ‘never felt so happy’ as she shaves head and eyebrows: ‘I’ve never liked having hair’

has shaved her head and and has been candid about the happiness she feels over her decision to make the change.

The singer, 26, whose real name is Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini, debuted her transformation on Instagram Live on Thursday. She told fans that she decided to shave her hair off because she felt like she “was never supposed to have hair anyway”.

“I, like, don’t like having hair. I never liked having hair. I cannot tell you one time, since the beginning of my life, that I’ve ever been like: ‘This is cool,’” Doja Cat told her followers directly during an Instagram Live, which has since been on Twitter. “I just do not like to have hair.”

The rapper’s decision to shave her head also stemmed from her frustration with wigs. She noted that she used to work out in the hair pieces, which would then “start sliding and peeling off of my head”.

“I’d be working out, but I couldn’t focus because I was more concerned with how I looked and how my hair was doing and how to keep it adhered to my scalp,” she continued, adding that she can’t believe it took her this long to “be like ‘shave your f**king head’”.
