Kerry Washington Calls Wearing Her Hair Natural an Act of "Unconditional Self-Love"
Kerry Washington's natural-hair moments have been some of her best beauty looks (2016 Emmy Awards, anyone?), so we are always here for the actress ditching her blowout in favour of curls. Kerry just got super candid about her natural hair, which she says is part of what makes her a good mum.
Kerry has two children — 3-year-old daughter Isabelle and 1-year-old son Caleb — and she's cognisant of the importance of being an empowering role model for them. As the Scandal actress told Today, "You can say to a child they have to love themselves. But until you can embody that truth and live it, what you're saying is much less important. For me, it's about living with as much self-love and self-respect as I'm able to."
One way Kerry does that is by rocking her natural hair whenever she damn pleases. "You want to make sure you're modelling self-love and unconditional self-love. I love myself no matter what way I choose to wear my hair that day. I love my hair," she said. Plus, "Women are so lucky who have textured hair. You can wear it straight or curly."
