Johnny Wright, Michelle Obama’s hairstylist, offered his best healthy hair care tips and answered Kmart customers questions about all things hair. Wright’s appearance was part of Kmart’s Share the Word Beauty and Wellness program to celebrate the individual and unique beauty of African Americans and encourage women to nurture their beauty, inside and out.
Below is a short video of what was presented. He’s a huge advocate of trimming hair and mentions that for some Black women our hair will only reach a certain hair length and “to get over it” because it’s simply a part of genetics. According to Wright, you should just add a few pieces of track if you want longer hair. And that’s where I disagree… simply because many Black women CAN and DO grow their hair to longer lengths. The key to reaching your maximum hair growth potential is learning about healthy hair care. I don’t believe that anyone’s maximum hair growth is shoulder length hair!
On another note, the video was funny and I really love his personality. Shedding and how often you should shampoo your hair was also mentioned. Check it out and let me know what you think about Johnny Wright’s hair care tips.
