Every day, more and more women are forgoing “creamy crack” in favor of their natural tresses, but imagine what a bold statement it would be if the First Lady, Mrs. Michelle Obama, showed up on the scene with natural hair.
One talented Photoshop designer took that visual from imagination to semi-reality with the photo we see here of the FLOTUS rocking a fierce head of big, bold curls that set Twitter on fire. Blogger Curly Nikki swooned over the image shared online but the more people fell in love with the natural fabulousness, the more this sentiment popped up: “it’s gorgeous but America ain’t ready.”
As much as we hate to admit it, it’s true. If the hair that naturally grows from black women’s heads is said to be inappropriate for the workplace, I can only imagine what would be said about it inside the White House. Sigh. At least with this pic a girl can dream.
Do you think America’s ready for a natural-haired FLOTUS?
