Tyra Banks Is Going to Lose Her Weave

Could natural Black hair finally be getting more love in the media? It looks that way. Hot on the heels of Chris Rock's excellent-looking documentary, Good Hair, comes an announcement from Tyra Banks's Twitter feed:

Guess What! I'm rockin' my REAL hair on my talk show September 8th. No fake hair at all! Will be the hair coming out of my scalp! 4 all 2 C!

4 all 2 C, you guys! OK, as much as I enjoy ribbing Tyra from time to time, she's winning me over with this idea. This isn't the first time Ty-ty has shown herself naturally (check out the makeup-free photos in her 1998 book), and it's great to see this down-to-earth side of her. In declaring Sept. 8 National Real Hair Day, Tyra is inviting her audience — both in the studio and at home — to wear their hair naturally. This could be a great thing for the millions of women and girls who are told, either directly or indirectly, that they need to relax, straighten, or add extensions to their natural hair. Nothing wrong with weaves, of course, but natural hair gets so little media love that this development has me stoked. Consider my TiVo programmed. Will you be watching, too?
