Don’t need a trip to the beauty shop, ’cause I love what I got on top

First the HIV-Positive character on Nigeria’s Sesame Street, now this!

This made me think about Larissa’s post, when she talked about Nneka and mentioned how pervasive chemically straightened hair is. I think it’s wonderful that Sesame Street is sending the message that keeping your hair natural doesn’t have to be a political statement or unattractive in any way, it can just be because this little girl’s hair is straight-up awesome (except, you know, not straight).
