Personal Opinion

Natural Hair in a Swiffer Commercial?!?!

I apologize if the title is confusing but its 100% true. Recently I was watching Shark Tank on Hulu, and I was immediately stopped mid thought. During one of the commercial breaks, I notice that there is a woman advertising the efficiency of their product. I was stunned to see that the woman doing the advertising had an afro.

Not just any afro but the one that’s not extremely large and obviously begging for minority backing. It was an afro of a 4c hair type that didnt seem to have much “professional” manipulation. Why is this so important? It is a staple in the natural hair community to have natural hair displayed on any platform but this is huge. The more normalized it becomes the more accepted it will be as well. If you don’t believe it check it out for yourself.
