"Just applied to join 4 private Natural Hair Facebook groups. I hope they don't auto-reject my application when they see my profile photo," he said in a Tweet, adding that it was all so he could acquire the skill: "I told them it was to keep getting better at doing my daughter's hair."

This isn't the first time Ohanian Sr. has chimed in for the issue.
The internet entrepreneur previously partnered with Dove Men + Care to push for a grant program with a $500 award to expectant fathers who weren't granted paid leave at work.
"No dad should have to sacrifice taking leave, and I've been very public about taking mine in an effort to show other men that you can still be an ambitious businessperson while also taking time for your family," he said in a statement earlier this year.
