Beauty Confessions from The First Lady Michelle O

October 5, 2015

There’s a pretty vague interview circulating around the web about Michelle Obama’s beauty secrets. It’s hard to tell who she was speaking to when she said she relies on headbands to keep her hair tamed; possibly Glamour Magazine. I’d like to think she wrote in her personal diary on the subject of beauty, then just shared it with anyone who wanted to read it.

Dear Diary,

The world wants to know what is up with my hair. Well….

“I use headbands. I try not to do anything additional, because with black folks and perms, that’s where your hair’s on your pillow. So I tend to just slick it back.”

Hummmmm ??? To be continued……

Dear Diary,

“I don’t do the 4:30 anymore. I’ve been going to a trainer because I’m not disciplined enough to work out on my own. A lot of free weights and cardio, about two hours.”


“I love French fries, I like a good burger, and I like pie. And that’s OK. I would be depressed if I felt I could never eat the things that I love.

“There are some great bakers here. If you like pie, it will be there always – at every meal. So for me, it’s about setting up new boundaries. I had some challenges with that, but I’m balancing out.”
