Evelyn Lozada has no problem switching up her fashion but the changes extend to her hair too.
The star of VH1’s “Basketball Wives” on Tuesday uploaded a photo rocking her natural curls to her Instagram account.
Further pressing the point of embracing her roots — both with her tresses and her heritage — the star shouted out her Puerto Rican heritage in the pic’s accompanying caption.
“Fire in my eyes, love in my heart, passion in my soul ❤️🇵🇷🇵🇷🇵🇷🇵🇷🇵🇷🇵🇷,” Lozada wrote July 2.
Fans eagerly praised the star’s look in the comments section.
“Dem f–kin curls sis FUEGO!!!!!”
“Evelyn…Your So Gorgeous!”
“Y them banging curls on your head 🤣😍”
“@evelynlozada 😍😍😍 your hair is goals 😍❤️”
While Lozada’s natural hair is what fans are focused on, during a recent interview, Lozada was more focused on something she mentioned in her caption: her connection to Puerto Rico.
As she visited “The Angie Martinez Show” a week ago, Lozada explained she conducted an ancestry search two years ago and found her maternal grandfather in Puerto Rico after she hired a private investigator. Her grandmother had run away when she got pregnant and so Lozada’s grandpa never got the chance to know the star’s mother, his daughter.
“Basically, my grandmother had a baby and she goes to where [my grandfather lived] and was like, ‘This is his child,’” Lozada explained of a photo her grandmother showed her then-teenage grandfather of the TV star’s mother. “So she hid the picture, never said anything to him for a long time but she kept it so before she passed away is when the picture came out, and he finally saw a picture of a potential child that he had.”
In the photo, however, Lozada explained that her mom looked as if she were a boy. So when the family sent a male member of the clan to where Lozada’s grandfather worked, grandpa said he knew he had a child somewhere in the world, but thought he had a son.
“I’m big on family,” Lozada said. “So even for, [my son] Leo’s family tree, for him to be able to have that information, just for him to be able to see his great-grandpa. I love that. When we found him, it was such an emotional moment. I’m bawling, girl! I had the ugly cry.”
