Gabby Douglas Fires Back at Hair Critics
Earning gold medals is hard work, and Gabby Douglas would rather focus on her gymnastics than her hairdo.
So when folks began making derogatory comments about her hair, Douglas explained that she has more important things to worry about.
Gabby began, "They have no idea what they're talking about. You sweat and all the gel and hairspray comes out. Even if we did fix our hair, our coach would be like, 'This is not a beauty pageant! Leave it alone.'"
"There's no bathroom. We rotate from event to event so there's no time for them to say 'Representing the USA, Gabrielle Douglas' and me to say 'Yeah, thanks!' as I'm brushing my hair. It's like, come on,” she added.
"It's so disrespectful! I'm not thinking about that. I'm thinking about bringing a gold medal home. I use great Pantene products in my hair. They make my hair silky, shiny and healthy."
