While Nicki Minaj is obviously not averse to posting revealing photos to Instagram (see: Halloween pasties, spring collection pasties, a majority of the selfies she posted in 2013), the series of photos she posted yesterday was not merely for insight into how she showers (though that's valuable knowledge also, IMHO). The photos were multipurpose and well-executed: They grabbed your attention because she's shirtless, and clearly she's still off wigs/ into her natural hair. Also, these photos announced that *drumrollll* she might have a new line of hair-care products coming out. Most of my Instagrams are like, "Look, I have a friend." I need to step my IG game up, it seems.
Plus I got new hair products Coming out so I gotta show u guys how well they work. Lmfao

YUP. These photos contain way more than a topless woman. Let's break it down.
Her Minajesty is not simply taking photos in the bath to show off her bod—she's documenting the process of relaxing her hair for the first time in four years. It's a BFD. On Twitter, Nicki replied to inquiring minds, saying she made the decision because drying her hair takes too much time. Nicki also wrote that she wouldn't be hiding it under a wig, so prepare yourself for more of this.
According to her own tweets, she also has new hair products coming out, so she took to Instagram to demonstrate how well they work. Look at how long here hair is! While Nicki has a line of wigs (and a $30 million lawsuit filed against her by her former "wig guru"), this is her first foray into hair care. It's no secret that Nicki is extremely skilled in promoting her own products, so we're sure we'll be seeing a lot more about her new line soon.
