Best Of The Week

The Obamas

I don't know how much of this is staged, being a Kenneddy stan and watching shows like Scandal have made me very cynical as to what the White House projects as a loving, married couple. I mean JFK was giving every woman within a one mile radius of Hyannis Port and he and Jackie slept in separate rooms but in public they looked like the perfect family. I don't even want to get into the mess that is the President, his wife and Olivia Pope on Scandal.

So yeah I know these things can be manipulated but unless the Obamas have the ghost of Paula Strasberg herself coaching them, I don't think its possible to fake the love and affection these two project constantly. They are so beautiful to watch and I can't lie to you I got a little misty-eyed looking at these pictures. Like how many years have they being married and he still looks at her like that?



















Adorbs!

Baba God do it for your girl.

Love and light xx

ps. Can someone please tell me what relaxer MObama uses? This is a burning question because her hair stays laid and it can't be the work of Dark & Lovely.

    1. Didn't even know they've been married that long, that's truly beautiful.

      Scandal is nutsville, Olivia and the Prez's relationship is not my cup of tea at all, its a bit too intense.

      Haven't been able to catch Season 2 since I moved back, blame it on struggle internet

  2. I thought about the exact same thing, I wanted to do a post on Mrs. O's hair, because I am dead certain she has some tracks up in there, I have looked at various styles. When its curled, when its straight, when it is pinned up, I'm positive she has some 8 and 10 inch tracks up in there, not even Mizani relaxer can do that.

    1. You think? I don't think so though, its not like her hair is extra long, it just looks really healthy and shiny and ish, never dry.

      Mizani is good? Never heard of it

  4. First Lady Michelle Obama is natural and does not use relaxer. Her hair is washed, blow dried and flat ironed : ) And I have to add that anyone can achieve that, just take good care of your hair and deep condition it often : ) Love your blog!!

    2. Ehn? Chill o, that is not natural hair at all at all. If she had natural hair you'd have seen it in its natural state at least once, plus she'll never flat iron it all the time, it'll kill her hair. Its def relaxed, look at her edges, not a kink in sight.

      I'm trying to achieve healthy relaxed hair and MObama's is def an inspiration.

      Thank you! Love you!

    3. Sorry i have to disagree with you there. My hair is natural. I don't use relaxer, My hairdresser flat irons/presses it then uses a straightener. And it comes out looking just as beautiful. No one believes it's natural.
      Because it is flat ironed and straightened, when i wash it, I just blow dry it and put it in a pony tail and it still looks relaxed.
      We don't need relaxers to achieve that look i assure you.

      Wish i could send you a picture of my hair, you won't believe it is not relaxed. I stopped using relaxers 5 years ago.

    1. Somebody somewhere needs to kidnap her stylist and make him spill. She has edges for days, mine are all burned up. Maybe its because she doesn't do weaves though......

    2. Daks, my cousin moved to the US and i saw her for the first time, 7yrs after she'd been living there, and I had to ask her what weave she had on, cos hair was about the same length as Michelle's, healthy and bouncing all over the place. Had to check her scalp for tracks, and it was indeed her hair. She told me she thinks the weather had helped and that besides, she used a particular flat-iron that was recommended to her for Black people's hair(not Oyinbo people's flat-iron oh -those were her exact words). Anyway, Daks give Creme of Nature a try (the improved formula in the Orange carton with Coconut and Sunflower oils (see link below) cartonhttp://www.cremeofnature.co.uk/nature/products/relaxers.html
      While i admit that everyone's hair is different, but it made my hair come back from the disaster that one other "cartoned" relaxer had turned it into. That particular Creme of Nature line made my hair so sleek, healthy, shimmery (more than shiny oh)just after the first application and it was so dark, people thought i dyed it. I have since gone natural since 2010 as i do whatever i like with my hair, depending on the brainwave that i get (low-cut, natural, relaxed, dreads), and like the Anon who said she flat-irons her natural hair and it looks like Michelle's i agree. I get my natural hair flat-ironed occasonally by a professional (Bankole in Wuse II, Abuja), and honestly, I feel like a Peacock each time its done cos its soooooooooo Beaurriful :) (sorry for the long epistle)

      Delete
    3. I really think being abroad does something good to your hair, mine really blossomed when I was living in the UK and I'm just hoping and praying it stays the same.

      I used Creme of Nature for a while as a teenager, there was nothing spectacular about them but judging by your comment they seem to have stepped up their game.

      I'll check it out.

  18. Loooool! The comments on this post got me rollinggg, no jokes...and im @ work, lol.

    The Obamas love cannot be fake, otherwise when I find out, I'll sue them for making me feel emotional like this. I ADMIRE them sooo much. Even if its fake, if that made a man or woman love their spouse more, better! Btwn, I'm in LOVE with Oliva Pope, that has to be my best series soo far. I thought Revenge got me, but Scandal it is.

    As for her hair, I can say a good hair stylist can do it all. But natural hair? Mbanu, I dont believe at all. @Anonymous, we need to see pictures, lol.

    There are men like Obama in Nigeria biko, even better sef, lol. @ Least my husband :D (A girl is allowed to dream and pray that it all comes to pass abi?)

    Lol. Great post Daks! You've made my day :)

    1. My dear ehn, I've been laughing with you.

      I really like Scandal but sometimes it feels a bit rushed, not as fluid as Greys Anatomy but the storyline is snappy and interesting though. Shondra is always dependable.

      I swear! That hair does not look natural in the least, I really find it hard to believe. If it sis then kudos to her stylist because I don't know how you can make natural hair look that smooth.

      I know there are :)

  19. It will be a shock if this love they portray is fake. i personally doubt it.

    ps. mizani hair products are very good, been using it for a year and one people always think i have extensions but i think their products work better depending on your natural hair texture. i ordered mine from the states cos it's very dear in the uk.

  23. I can attest that her hair might be natural and might not revert to it's kinky state. I've been straightening my natural hair for a while now and whenever I wash it, it doesn't go back to it's afro stage. I honestly miss my fro sometimes

  24. I've used Mizani in the past. The problem is that they dry my hair really bad and my hair starts to break. You can try design essentials or Nairobi relaxer. They are a lot better. I just started using Phytorelaxer. It's quite expensive $60 at sephora. It's supposed to be less harsh on the hair, organic, blah blah. So far I like what it's doing to my hair. Maybe you can try it

  25. Mrs. Michelle Obama's hair is all natural, as well as both of her girls. All she & her hair stylist do is strengthen it. In other words, she doesn't use perm in her hair or her daughters. Hope this helps. P.S. I used to think she's using perm too but I read an interview from her hair stylist & he said no, it's natural. His name is Johnny Wright, u can google him.

    Yes natural baybee... Even if Mrs O's hair is natural I am sure she softens it somehow (not just deep conditioning) or something or is she mixed race??

    Love the blog as always..xx
