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?

    Would her natural tresses alter the fact that she is smart?!
    Would her natural tresses alter the fact that, her being black is the issue, not her hair?!
    Would her natural tresses alter the fact that, the white America does not care about YOUR hair?!

    The answer is NO!!!!! STOP IT peoplez with this mundane natural hair obsession, and the over politicization of it.

    Please just stop the madness, stop it right this second. Natural, relaxed, locs, shaved, it all comes down to this: IT. IS. JUST. F*CKING HAIR.

    Hahaha right?!? I couldn’t find the word for it but you hit the nail on the head with your post- it is an obsession. Its just sick. Your hair is just that hair, no different from your fingernails and the way you decide to style/ wear them. Are we going to start a short finger nails movement?!
