“There’s not one woman in America who does not care about her hair. But we give it way too much value,” said Davis.Ā “We deprive ourselves of things, we use it to destroy each other. We’ll look at a child and judge a mother and her sense of motherhood by the way the child’s hair looks. I am not going to traumatize my child about her hair. I want her to love her hair.”

Davis also toldĀ EssenceĀ about her husband whom she deems a blessing from God. “I asked for a husband who was emotionally available, someone who was older, someone who maybe had a family before,” explained the star. “I likeĀ older men. Someone from the South. Someone who loves God more than he loves himself.”

Julius and Viola wed in 2003. They adopted Genesis in 2011. She is their first child together.
