Kimberly is no stranger to the natural hair community and has been very vocal about how much she loves her natural curls, frequently wearing her fro publicly to red carpet events. Even though her profession requires versatility I love when actresses embrace their real hair and flaunt it whenever the opportunity presents itself. It is even more encouraging when they take the time to share their thoughts on their natural hair, their products and admit to finding the online hair community helpful.
Over the weekend John Q was playing on BET – this movie makes me cry every.single.time – and I found myself staring at Kimberly’s hair. I wonder if she was relaxed and wearing her real hair or if she was rocking a wig, but I quickly determined I much prefer her natural coils to the straight hair. I know natural hair can be worn in a variety of textures which is part of its beauty and attraction, but Kim’s perfectly coiffed medium length curly afro is so lush and perfect!
Thanks Ms. Kimberly Elise for being such an advocate of natural, healthy hair and proving that to be successful in Hollywood down-to-there straight extensions are not a necessity! Definitely celebrity hair crush worth tresses.
