A Love Song To Our Hair


So today I came across this dope music video while scrolling down my Facebook timeline. It’s called Natural Curly Hair by Benjy Cinco ft Rome D’Carlo. A Facebook friend from my fellowship program posted it because she is one of the natural haired beauties featured. Already winning points for the Bonita Applebum sample, Natural Curly Hair is a summery ode to natural hair and the beauty of black women. It provided good vibes and got me to thinking if there are any other cool songs that cerebrate our natural hair and beauty. After a little research I found a few songs that will give you hope when your naps just won’t do right and your jar of coconut oil isn’t enuf. Press play and enjoy : ).

I Dont Care (About My Frizzy Hair)- Shameless Maya & Friends

I Love My Hair- Sesame Street

Flawless-Beyonce

Beautiful Skin- Goodie M.O.B

Electric Lady- Janelle Monae

Natural- Arrested Development

The Makings of You- Terrace Martin ft. Overdoz & Kurrupt

Fallin’- Pac Div

As a bonus heres a link to a mixtape all about natural hair. What songs make you fall in love with your naps all over again?
