Nappy Goes to the WhiteHouse!
This past Sunday, 60 Minutes interviewed our President-elect Barack Obama and our soon-to-be lovely First Lady Michelle. There was some heart warming kitchen footage of Barack cutting up some veggies with his daughter at his side wearing some adorable twists. I’ve been watching the 60 Minutes website for a couple of days hoping they’d post the interview, which they did, so that I could try and capture a screen print of Malia (not sure that’s how it’s spelled) in her twists. Ha! They did and so here it is. I’m really tickled cause the cameras rarely focus on the girls and so there are only glimpses of Malia in her twists. I love this shot cause it’s a close up and she’s absolutely precious. Enjoy!
Oh, if you missed and would like to see the interview, 60 Minutes posted it in four parts here http://www.cbsnews.com/sections/60minutes/main3415.shtml
That baby sure is beautiful. I hate say it though, I think the heat is killing her ends. The pictures above was taken from 60 Minutes footage from a story they did on Barack a year ago.
This is a more recent pic of her hair in twists.
You can see her whispy, straight ends. Reminds me of how my niece’s hair looked after repeated straightening. My sis had to cut off almost four inches of her hair… Hopefully Michelle will recognize that as damage and perhaps give her a good cut. However, I’m sure she’ll always straighten and curl Malia’s hair for special occasions or for whatever reason she sees fit. And with my nappy crystal ball, (after seeing that my sis finally broke down and allowed a relaxer in niece’s hair) I even see a relaxer in Malia’s future when she hits the teen years.
Oh well, hopefully that won’t happen and until then, I’m certainly getting a kick out of seeing Malia’s hair in all it’s nappy glory right now, and perhaps for many more years to come.
