Mama June shows off her new hairstyle and says 'this is the new me' after being 17 months sober from drugs and alcohol

MAMA June showed off her new hairstyle and said “this is the new me.”

The 41-year-old shared a photo of her makeover after being 17 months sober from drugs and alcohol.


June- whose full name is June Shannon- took to her Instagram Story on Friday to share a snap of her voluminous long blonde hair.

The Mama June: From Not to Hot star donned a large smile as her hair cascaded past her shoulders in loose curls.

Alongside the snap, June wrote: “This is the new me and I’m loving it.”

The caption concluded with June called the makeover “self love.”

TROUBLED PAST

The TV personality’s journey to self acceptance has been a long time coming.

Back in 2019, June was arrested on drug charges, including possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia charges in Alabama.  

She was arrested with her boyfriend Geno Doak, who was charged with third-degree domestic violence, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.  

It is estimated that June spent a staggering $900,000 in a year on drugs. 

The couple eventually went to rehab, while June’s daughter Lauryn- also known as Pumpkin- had to take in June’s youngest daughter, Alana Thompson, 15. 

Since leaving rehab, June and Geno moved to Florida to focus on their sobriety.

Despite their arrest happening back in 2019, Geno previously told The Sun that he could be facing up to five years in jail. 

The 45-year-old confirmed he was "unfortunately" facing jail time while exclusively chatting with The US Sun.

Geno added that he felt "very concerned" about the prospect of going to prison.

JUNE'S MAKEOVER

June's new hair isn't the only change she's made since getting clean, as she also had work done on her teeth.

The TV star previously underwent dental work at the Beverly Hills Dental Lab in November last year.

June, who had $40,000 worth of veneers fitted into her mouth, previously insisted she broke her teeth "chewing ice" and not because of her crack addiction.

However, she slammed the "f***ing nightmare" of a dentist and claimed they botched her teeth in June.

While talking to The Sun, June said she "don't know" if she was going to sue dentist Dr. Tom Kalili for $35,000 after demanding that money from him because she claimed to be left in pain over the procedure.

"He has been a f***ing nightmare," June declared as she listed the procedures she had done that day by a different dentist and showed off the new veneers.

She said: "I'm still swollen, I spent $19,000 to get these temporary [veneers], by the Our Dental Group in Beverly Hills, and they did my work in September.

"They're only temporary, so hopefully I'll be able to get a permanent soon."

June added: "They broke the temporaries they put on in September, but the Beverly Hills one (Kalili) is the one who did them poor and left me exposed at the top.

"But luckily the ones who did them in September, I had to pay $12,500 just to get this temporary made, so I would not go back to Georgia exposed."
