Black Hair in the White House

This evening I decided to straighten my hair for the first time in 4 years. While working through the knots, I was struck by a very familiar moment…

“Damn this girl’s hair.”

I heard my mother’s voice as I sprayed the ends with detangler and ensured that each strand had just the right amount of luster’s pink lotion. It made me think. Does Michelle Obama brush Sasha and Malia’s hair in the mornings? If so, does that mean that Michelle Obama’s voice can be heard in the White House cursing their hair? Awesome. But then again, maybe that’s why her mom moved in to the White House with them.
