The short answer is yes! Tina Turner has even confirmed it on several occasions. The story goes that in the early Ike & Tina days she went to have her hair bleached and as the hairdresser took the bleaching cap off, Tina's hair came with it.

So she started to wear wigs and liked having instantly long hair and could have whatever style she wanted, so she continued to wear wigs even after her hair grew back. She still wears wigs to this day.

Tina is not bald as many people say. She has natural hair like many other black women. There are a few photos on the web that show Tina without her wig, looking radiant and naturally beautiful.
