During her eight years and being the first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama made many contributions to the cultural and political realities in her own style, supported the superiority of girls in school and university, the poor classes, fought against racial discrimination, gave up the long sleeves that distinguished the clothes of White House women, and snapped shoes Flat. All this while she is forced every day to straighten her hair to get rid of its natural appearance, as curly hair for an African-American woman.
She is one of them
as much as Michelle's transformation was confusing but he was expected, because she is the first lady even if the first black first lady had to come with so many freedoms for women like her with curly hair, but last month Michelle attended the New Orleans Festival to talk about some advice on Marriage, and talking about her 21-year marital relationship with a partner she loves and respects.
What most impressed the audience was her hair, which appeared curly for the first time directly in front of the audience, after she appeared on the cover of "Essence" magazine in 2017, and again in peeked photos of her on the beach, all after leaving the White House.
She spoke frankly of having to adopt a different hair nature from her hair, and a strategy to emerge while she was in the White House as the first lady. Describing what she experienced as a "very frustrating reality" about her role as a black woman in American political life, she tried to appear like the white people who they only saw and marveled about the presence of a woman of the same color in this place, but she lived a suffering that they knew nothing about.
In her meeting with the festival, Michelle reiterated that her struggle is not only the struggle of the first lady, but the struggle of every black woman who goes out into the public domain because the world sees her only through the different way in which her feeling grows, without regard to her status in work and promotions, and despite their qualifications, all because of poetry Scheduled and curly.
After the festival, Michelle shared her image with curly hair with his golden ends on Instagram, and this image was the first time that many people saw Michel's new look.
Trapped in the prevailing
know Michelle a lot about the nature of her hair, you know that the most misleading stereotypes about black curly hair is that it is clean, and unprofessional, and its owner is not polite. A long history of attacks against black natural hair has turned it into a stigma for accompanying it to such an extent that whites are not the only ones practicing discrimination, but that the idea has penetrated generations of black women to judge each other.
At a time when her shiny, smooth hair was in the White House to become the talk of many, early pictures of Michelle appear in her educational stages with curly hair and shrinkage with less density than the current.
About that, Johnny Wright says her private hairdresser for more than ten years that Michelle was using the hair straightener between 2008 and 2015, until she succumbed to her hair treatment with Keratin, which gave him a shiny and thick look later, and as a way to reduce her hair's heat exposure, fast styling, and repair damaged .
These were the last years in which Michelle wrote her book, which was quickly released to become one of the best-selling memos of all time, as readers found themselves in the stories of the little black girl who grew up in south Chicago, one fact that Michelle knows is how rare millions of stories read A black woman, and for this she chose to be honest in telling the details of her life during the presidential period, especially this angry woman who received many punches with her and her husband to reach the White House.
Let the hair be natural.
Michelle’s enthusiasm for the nature of her hair has shown an example of girls seeking to accept the ripples of their hair around the world in the past few years on social media pages.
This soft pressure of millions of girls who decided to leave their hair untouched caused the Governor of California to sign a bill last month that prohibits employers from discriminating against people with natural hair, so that there will be a law that protects black women from what they have suffered for decades, and become Rasta Narrow curls, curls and a Bantu knot are well suited for work and attending formal meetings.

This afternoon, I was thrilled to visit with @CocoGauff. When we talk about the potential of our young people, we often think about it as some far-off promise, years or decades away. But the truth is they have so much to offer us right now — something we all saw a few weeks ago at Wimbledon. Coco is a wonderful young woman who's showing us that we don't have to wait to see what the next generation can do.

And in New York, a bill with new human rights principles was passed, since last February, and it has become racial discrimination targeting people based on their hair or hairdressing at work, school or public places, and people who have been subjected to this trend to court and fined the perpetrator, whether a person or A company 250 thousand dollars.
This confirmed a recent study of the "Dove" skincare company for two thousand women between the ages of 25 and 64, across the United States, and working in office jobs to reveal the reality of the impact of corporate social standards, unfairly to blacks in the workplace.
It says that 50% of black women are more likely to be dismissed from work because of their feelings, in the event that they get to work, and women reported that they are more likely than white people, by 80% to change their natural hair to meet social norms or management expectations.
