What the hell does Sesame Street know about a black girl’s hair? Apparently alot! lol
Sesame Street recently did an episode on loving one’s hair, particularly black hair. The Sesame Street song ‘I love My Hair,’ was sang by a cute little black girl puppet who sported different hairstyles like a cute curly black afro, cornrows, dreadlocks, and barrettes.
Let’s all give a hand clap to Sesame Street because African-American hair deserves adoration too! The little puppett sings ‘whether in a clip or a bow…or let it sit in a afro. My hair looks good in a cornrow…I love my hair!’ This episode and song gives little black girls the opportunity to see themselves and their hair as being special, which is something that they’re usually not given in the media.
Thank you Sesame Street! I Love My Hair!

Hopefully, the ‘I love My Hair’ song will boost the self-esteem of all little girls, especially African-American girls, and make them feel more self-confident about their appearance.
With a movie like Chris Rock’s ‘Good Hair,’ and shows like Tyra discussing ‘good hair’ and ‘bad hair’ in the African-American community, it’s good to see something that celebrates little black girls and all their uniqueness in America.
There’s a reason why Sesame Street decided to celebrate African-American Hair, because many African-Americans view their hair has something that’s ugly and unflattering.

There’s always this discussion about ‘good hair’ and ‘bad hair,’ but where does this negative sentiment come from? Well, probably a combination of places including the media as well as the home. Watch young black girls discuss what they think ‘good hair’ is on Tyra.
