The power and versatility of Black hair is immeasurable. It can stand up. It can sway. It's curly and it's straight. It conveys moods. It makes statements. But actress Issa Rae knows that you can be just as powerful without it. In this episode of ESSENCE's "The Coloring" — an animated video series that serves as an expression of Black Girl Magic — Issa tells us a story about the time she dared to shave her head bald...and how it transformed her life in a big way. This is the coloring of Issa Rae.
