Over the weekend, Michelle Obama celebrated her 57th turn around the sun as fans from all over rushed to social media to send her some birthday love. The Capricorn queen took to Instagram to thanks all the well-wishers and shared a selfie showcasing her beautiful natural hair.
The former First Lady works her angles in this candid, black-and-white selfie with not a lick of makeup on. In the caption, she encourages fans to lead with care for themselves and others. “I know this past year has been difficult for us all on so many levels,” the caption reads. “So I just hope you all are taking care of yourselves and finding joy in the smallest moments. Love you all. 💕”
Obama’s curls are on full display in this photo, and we are loving every moment of it. It looks like she may be a few days into a wash-and-go with the extra frizz on her crown. She looks pretty casual with her medium-length hair unparted as it falls past her collarbones. She embraces all the frizz and volume that make natural hair so special.
Since the Obamas left the White House, we have seen Michelle wear her natural hair a lot more, especially within this last year — and every time, we are in awe of the gorgeous coils. Unfortunately, she hasn’t yet given us the 411 on the products she uses. But if one day she does decide to drop the wash-and-go tutorial on Instagram, we will be right there watching eagerly.
