A few days ago, I shared a Gain commercial with you featuring model Tomiko Fraser Hines.
Here are 2 screenshots from the commercial:
When I posted this commercial, and shared it on Twitter, I never in my wildest dreams thought that Tomiko would check out my post or even comment on it!
But she did, and her message is this:
Hello. My name is Tomiko Fraser Hines and I am the actress featured in this Gain commercial. First, thank you so much to “Natural Hair In The Media” for writing this article. I have been floored by the amount of attention and support I’ve been receiving from the natural hair community because of this commercial. I do hope that you and your readers will let Gain know just how much you appreciate seeing women of color/women with natural hair featured in their ads. I think it’s important they know that by seeing ourselves represented in their ads means more than they probably realize. You can leave comments on Gain’s Facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/Gain. And feel free to give me a shout out there too. : )
I’d also like to invite your readers to “like” my page on Facebook (www.facebook.com/tomikofraser) and to follow me on Twitter (www.twitter.com/GoddessTomiko). I post inspirational messages and much more on both sites.
