“The first black bachelorette…Pantene celebrating black hair! It’s a good night for African American women.”
In case you haven’t heard, attorney Rachel Lindsay is making history on The Bachelorette this season as the show’s first black lead. Her first episode aired on Monday night.
During the show, Pantene decided to air an ad that celebrates
“strong, beautiful African American hair.”
The ad features black women of all ages, hair styles, and skin tones celebrating what makes their lovely tresses unique.
“We are proudly born with hair that grows as strong as a storm, and doesn’t conform to a beauty norm that isn’t our own,” the narrator of the ad says. “So many wrong things are said about how it grows from our head, but to think that beauty is only sleek or wavy is crazy.”
The ad was released in March and made waves before when it aired during Empire.
