THE INSPIRING REASON KERRY WASHINGTON WEARS HER HAIR NATURALJanuary 1, 2018
Kerry Washington is keeping it real as far as her beauty regimen.
The Scandal star has opened up about how wearing her natural hair has been a way to inspire her children.
“I like to wear my natural texture, especially now because I have children and I want them to know that their hair is perfect as it is,” she told Allure. “They don’t have to change it or straighten it. They can, but they don’t have to.”
She also broke down the facts of how looking impeccable like her character Olivia Pope is not something that is attainable in real life.
“There’s someone who follows me around all day long [on the set],” she added. “Like, literally follows me to make sure there’s not a single hair out of place. This is somebody’s full-time job. Then someone follows me around to add powder so that I never look shinier than I’m supposed to.”
It takes a village to have it handled like Olivia Pope.
Props to Washington for being honest about Hollywood’s insane beauty standards.
