Our favourite funny girls from the hit comedy series Black-ish are currently featured in this month’s issue of Essence magazine, once again giving us another reason to love them by utilising the platform to encourage women to embrace their natural, chemical-free curls in an article titled ‘Naturally Yours’.
Tracee Ellis Ross has always loved depictions of natural hair on television series, as she once shared, ‘I think it’s huge that I’m wearing my natural hair texture on ABC in prime time. As Dr Rainbow Johnson on Black-ish, I think my hair is part of the reality of this woman’s life.’
