Michelle Obama Sports Her Natural Hair


In the eight years of her husband’s presidency, Michelle Obama wore her hair in may different straight styles as First Lady.

We have never seen her hair in its natural state until now. Recently a photo surfaced on Twitter of Michelle wearing her hair pulled back into a ponytail with a blue polka dot scarf and wearing sunglasses and a gray tank top. “This is the picture I have been waiting on for like 3 years. COME ON NATURAL,” the original tweet, receiving more than 35,000 retweets and 98,000 favorites, read.

It is great to see a former first lady embrace her textured hair when we live in a society where black women can be discriminated against for not conforming to “traditional beauty standards”.
