Check out this awesome video (page 2) of a new Sesame Street character who sings about loving her gorgeous natural hair.

A worried dad—who happens to be a Sesame Street exec—created the brown muppet when his Ethiopian-born daughter bemoaned her natural, "fluffy" hair, wishing instead for flowing "Barbie" hair.

Joey Mazzarino says he wrote the song after noticing his daughter playing with dolls.

"She wanted to have long blond hair and straight hair, and she wanted to be able to bounce it around," he tells NPR's Melissa Block.

Sporting a changing catalog of beautiful natural 'dos, the muppet sings, "I don't need a trip to the beauty shop, cuz I love what I got on top!"

I love this!! I've been singing it all day!! Haha! I wish I would have had this when I was younger.
What a lovely story, nat2rual2! Thanks for sharing.
I love this. I let my niece (7) watch it tonight because she doesn't like her hair. She doesn't see the beauty in natural hair. I've been natural for over 2 years and during this time she has had her fair share of ugly things to say about my hair. It was good to see her smiling while watching the video.
This made me smile.
This song warmed my soul and though i wish i had this song before i relaxed in my younger years, i am glad that an inspiration like this was finally made.
Love this!
