it made me laugh out loud..enjoy a good laugh!

i love [my] hair

so after seeing this video. i was smiling from ear to ear! if i had kids, i'd totally have them watching this video. i ran into a lady at Starbucks the other night with the prettiest natural. going through transition for the second time is a bit on transitioning hair style number...6??! im loving the experimentation but the more kinky my hair becomes the more my mind is saying: girl you better go get a relaxer!

anyways..i love this video. it's inspiring and it's exciting to know that Seseame Street is promoting this with the kids. i wish it were more like this in mainstream music promoting self love and embracing the naturality that God has given to black women who are, in my opinion, the most beautiful women on earth. enjoy
