do I love this girl and her hair! Standing ovation from me for keeping true to her hair style choice in an industry where 24 inch Brazilian weaves rule! I first highlighted gorgeous Kenyan actress Lupita’s hair on this blog in this post back in September 2013.

Kenyans and Africans at large were first introduced to Lupita on the MTV Base AIDS Awareness Series “Shuga” that first aired on the continent in November 2009 the first two seasons were set in Kenya and the current season is set in Nigeria. Lupita had a starring role in the first two seasons her character was called “Ayira” and she still wore her natural hair short then just like she does now. I read an interview where she said she cut her hair in her early twenties and has always worn it short ever since. The talented Yale graduate also wrote, produced and directed a documentary on people living with albinism called “In My Genes” in 2009.

Did I mention that she is Kenyan like me; my claim to fame LOL:) But seriously though all claiming aside you can’t help but be proud of this girl and how far she has come. Way to go Lupita may your star shine even brighter!
