Web users are praising Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian Sr. after he revealed that he applied to a Facebook natural hair group so he can learn to care for his daughter’s hair.
Alexis shares 1-year-old Olympia Alexis Ohanian with tennis champion Serena Williams.
Obviously, caring for the hair of a Black or mixed race child is very different from caring for the hair of an Asian or Caucasian. But Alexis isn’t letting this make him shy away from his responsibilities as a father, instead he’s keen to learn about nappy hair.
He took to Twitter to write:
Just applied to join 4 private Natural Hair facebook groups. I hope they don’t auto-reject my application when they see my profile photo
I told them it was to keep getting better at doing my daughter’s hair.
Twitter users have expressed hopes that he will be allowed into the group while some have promised to teach him hair tips if he isn’t allowed in.
