Hey subscribers and visitors! I’m always on the look-out for conversations around the web about natural hair and commercials/advertisements. It’s a good sign that people continue to talk about this great topic. Natural hair has been and will remain relevant. Today’s feature for my Mondays Around the Web post comes from the blog, Hairscapades.
In this post, Shelli highlights an Infiniti commercial with a natural hair bride. Her comments about the commercial are interesting: “As many of you know, I’ve been natural for 12 years. When I see comments that more natural women are in commercials now … I often think, “They’ve always been there.” But, I think that “seeing” natural hair in the media is like seeing the car that you drive, you never notice how many of them there are until you “own” one yourself”

But tell me, is natural hair in the media simply a function of noticing more women in the media because you are natural? Like Shelli suggests, “I think that “seeing” natural hair in the media is like seeing the car that you drive, you never notice how many of them there are until you “own” one yourself”.
Or is there more to it than that?
Let me know your thoughts,
