Well, that was quick. Kim Kardashian ditched her braids earlier than expected and declared that she was back to “reality” in an Instagram post on Monday, January 11.

“Back to reality,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 35, captioned a photo of herself with her signature long, flowy hair.

Kardashian had been keeping her hair in tight braids ever since welcoming her second child, son Saint West, with husband Kanye West in December. Last month, during a livestream on her app, she said that she would keep the braids “for months.”

Merry Christmas everybody! Good night!

In one snap, she revealed that her daughter, North, was rocking a matching style.

“Merry Christmas everybody! Good night!” Kardashian wrote alongside the pic of herself with 2-year-old Nori, who also had her hair in braids.
