Fro Spotting: Adorable Skai Jackson


We decided to dedicate this edition of Fro Spotting to Skai Jackson, the pint sized 11-year-old star of the Disney channel show Jessie. She rocks one of the meanest twist outs we ever seen, and puts many a grown natural to shame with her hair’s fullness and shine. The New York native will star in the upcoming movie The Watson’s Go to Birmingham, alongside Wood Harris and Anika Noni Rose. This tiny natural is definitely one to watch!

    I’m no fan of the Disney channel shows, but I’m lovin this child’s hairstyles!!! She has a spectacular head of hair….kudos, kudos, kudos to her stylist and parents!!!

    Absolutely adorable!!!!! However, why MUST the article offer further division amongst naturals by saying “and puts many a grown natural to shame with her hair’s fullness and shine.” SERIOUSLY? Every single time there’s an article about a celebrity sporting a natural look there’s ALWAYS some underlying negativity. “Is it her natural “natural” hair, is your hair really “natural” if you straighten it, look how long this persons waist length hair is, are you natural if you wear a weave – HONESTLY- just encourage, compliment and move on! God forbid if this pint sized cutie decides to straighten her hair, then there will be an article about how her mother sold her out to hollywoods perception, and how her edges are falling out and ends are chipped off – Just PLEASE stop.

    She looks like a perfect doll! So pretty and sweet. I love edges hanging out! I make a point not to do more than brush mine back a little. I love my edges. But yes the article was written negatively.

    I am 9 years old. Skai Jackson is pretty have good hair and a good actor. That hair is SUPER CUTE!! Whoever do her hair. You Know how to do some GOOD HAIR. Plus skai if your reading this I think Jessie would be better if they should adopt a new child your age . And that will make the show better because the more people that is on the show the more people watch

    I like her hair and I wish I was like her. Sometimes I wish hair could change between processed and natural hair. I love being Black.
