Scandal star Kerry Washington has decided to show off her natural hair in stunning new photos for Allure.
The pictures made a lot of noises online because they conveyed a message that not everyone is ready to embrace.
With this photo shoot, Washington is asking people to embrace their natural self. Part of this means promoting natural hair as something to be proud of.
One person, who is happy with the direction she took, shared: “Yall commenting about edge control obviously missed the creative direction & vision for this shoot. And the reason y’all wishing for edges like hers is because she is not smothering her edge in an alcohol-based product.”
Another supporter added: “Wow… I am appalled by some the replies giving about this amazing pic of #kerrywashington. She has the grace to reveal her all natural beauty and glow to the world…in the same day, can transform to multiply her ratings(no matter how you feel!) on television and receive her rewards. With her inspiration in this pic, She makes me proud to be a black woman in my wisdom!”
Washington should be applauded for keeping it real.
