The red carpet will continue to shine with natural hair divas displaying their God-given roots. Nothing will melt our hearts more than to see more women giving up the weaves and rocking what is theirs with boldness. Embracing one’s natural hair is a powerful image in that it shares that I am fine just the way I am. The stigmas of natural hair are being broken and more of our daughters will see that it is absolutely normal and acceptable.
