A photo of Michelle Obama wearing her natural hair appeared to catch fire on the Internet as viewers shared their views of the former's first lady's appearance.

The undated photo appeared in a Twitter post on Sunday, showing Obama with her hair pulled back in a low puff, wearing a gray polka dot headband, according to The Huffington Post.

"It's not confirmed exactly where the former first lady is or when the photo was taken ― though Barack Obama is currently writing his memoir in the French Polynesian islands ― but that didn't stop Twitter from having a d*** fit," wrote Taryn Finley, of The Huffington Post.

"Many social media users noted that they’ve been waiting for this natural hair moment for the longest. Others reveled in the glow of Obama's melanin," Finley continued.

Khalea Underwood, of Refinery29.com, wrote that African-American women should feel free to wear their natural hair on their own choosing and delighted in the photo.

"Despite our hopes and wishes, Mrs. Obama opted to straighten her hair throughout her time in the public eye. Until now, it appears," Underwood wrote. "… But I know that it was worth the wait. We have reached out to Michelle Obama's hairstylist and team to confirm the authenticity of the photograph and will update this piece when we learn more."

Others responded on social media.
