I really like this video because these were everyday women rocking natural hair no makeup or nothing. This is something you never see on video.

Wow! That was so beautiful and positive! It's so nice to see black men showing respect to black women, especially black women with natural hair. I hope to see more love directed at all of us in the future.

Super!!! That was the best! Perhaps now the world will begin to see natural hair as the norm and perm hair as something unusual. Well....at least a step in the right direction. Thanks CN this made my day!!
