Not only was the Dominican fitness trainer just welcomed into the CoverGirl family in a truly inspiring way, but she just chopped all of her hair off in the name of her daughter, Indi and debunking the phrase"pelo malo".  

Arias was known for her sleek, shiny and blunt blowout in all her workout videos and photos she would post throughout her timeline. In fact, it's rare to find the celebrity fitness guru ever show off her natural hair, which is why this is MAJOR!

Recently, the hot mama posted the image below rocking her new curly chop while explaining to her followers why she did it.  

 

When I was 9 years old I asked my mom why my hair was curly and hers straight. I’m sure being a busy mom and having a different hair type than mine, my mom did what she thought was best for her lifestyle. Yesterday I chopped it all off so I can be all natural. Because I am more than my hair! I want indi to understand her heritage and relate to me. I want her to feel beautiful in her own skin. I got tired of straightening my hair with heat, perms, and putting my scalp under so much stress being that I have mild scalp psoriasis. So let’s see how I adapt to my natural hair and see these curls come in. STAY TUNED FOR THE YOUTUBE VIDEO WHERE I’LL BE SHARING THE WHOLE PROCESS WHERE @amenabelledesoleil CHOPS IT UP. What products do you guys recommend? Let’s hear them. I need tons of advice and I’m sure I have lots to learn. Thank you @simplybiancaalexa @sunkissalba for all the advice. To my @mawarriors let’s kill week 2 of our challenge! I spent all day cleaning up, grocery shopping, and cooking. This week I’m so focused to do better than ever!

Por mi hija! Cuando tenia 9 años le pregunté a mi mamá que porque mi cabello era rosado y el de ella era lacio. Yo se que mi madre hizo lo mejor que ella pensó que necesitaba en ese momento y allí viene ron los alisados y tratamientos para alisar el pelo. Ayer decidí cortármelo todo para comenzar una jornada en la cual volveré a mi estado natural. Yo quiero que mi hija se identifique conmigo. Que sepa que ella al natural es bella. Esperen el video donde les muestro el proceso. Llore, reí, y cuando llegue a casa encontré un esposo que le encantó mi decisión y ama como me veo. Gracias @amenabelledesoleil por el corte de pelo y tantos consejos. Esta será una jornada muy interesante. No se nada de cabello natural, así que estaré aprendiendo de mis amigas @simplybiancaalexa y @sunkissalba que ya me están dando muchísimos consejos. Tienen ustedes productos favoritos para pelo natural? A ver? Tomo notas! #hijadecristo

She gave details on how she wants to move away from the discrimination many Latinas still struggle with today when it comes to hair. "I want Indi to understand her heritage and relate to me. I want her to feel beautiful in her own skin. I got tired of straightening my hair with heat, perms, and putting my scalp under so much stress being that I have mild scalp psoriasis." P-R-E-A-C-H ! 

See her haircut is larger than just a new look, it sheds the light on the Afro-Latino community, the natural hair movement, and self-love. Ey girl Massy, you lookin' fly!
