LOVE Island’s Yewande Biala revealed her natural Afro hair after being criticised for wearing wigs.

The 23-year-old scientist took to her Instagram Story to explain why she rarely shows her natural hair as she insisted that she is proud of it.

In the snap, Yewande is sitting in front of a mirror at a beauty salon.

The photo has been taken from behind and shows the Irish beauty’s natural hair in all of its glory, but she has concealed her reflection with an emoji.

She captioned the post: “I’m aware and I’ve seen all the comments that I should have had my natural hair out for my last post.

“My hair is 4c and I PERSONALLY find it hard to manage without heat! I don’t like putting heat on my hair!

“My schedule is busy and protective styles suits ME!

“I love my hair and I’m not ashamed to have it natural… My black is beautiful!”

Type 4C hair is tightly coiled and has a high breakage rate.

Yewande was praised for her honest post on social media, with one fan tweeting: “Them people need to chill the f*** out! Having 4c hair is no easy task to maintain!”

Another added: “It’s her hair, she can do whatever the f*** she wants with it. I was natural with 4c hair for about four years, I know how much time and effort goes into maintaining in daily.

“If it doesn’t fit into her schedule, it doesn’t. Simple as that.”

A third wrote: “She can do what she wants, I swear people just want things to moan about.”

Yewande was a fan favourite during her time in Love Island but was unceremoniously dumped from the villa when Danny Williams ditched her for Arabella Chi.

The star is currently still single but earlier this month, it was reported that booted contestant Sherif Lanre had asked her out on a date.

She has also been romantically linked to Casa Amor hunk George Rains, with the pair growing close after the series ended in July.
