Cardi B is the biggest female rap star in the world. And yesterday she went viral, after showing fans her natural hair.

"Look at my hair. This is dead-ass my fucking real hair," she says, the sound of a shower running in the background. "Yes! Lemme wash it." But before presumably shampooing and conditioning, she says, "Wow, I'm so proud of myself," Cardi wrote on Instagram.

It’s wash day for the Bronx rapper and before she scrubbed her scalp squeaky clean, she gave us a view of her voluminous, wavy hair.

While looking beautiful au naturel, she was pleased with how much her afro has blossomed over the years.
