Have you heard about the latest video taking the internet by storm? It’s a catchy little song from the folks on Sesame Street, praising the beauty of natural hair.
‘I Love my Hair’ was written by Joey Mazzarino, head writer of Sesame Street, after he heard his adopted daughter complaining her hair didn’t look anything like the long, blonde hair of her Barbie dolls. His daughter Segi, originally from Ethiopia, was unhappy with her natural hair, which inspired Mazzarino to write the song’s empowering lyrics.
“I just want kids to know their hair is beautiful,” Mazzarino told ABC News. “I just hope little kids, little girls, see this and really feel positive and great about themselves.”
