It is unclear where or when the picture was originally taken.
During a 2015 interview with the Root, Michelle's hairstylist, Johnny Wright, said the former first lady has been "completely natural" for years. He also hinted that Michelle would set down the straightener when she went on vacation.
The Obamas were recently seen vacationing at a private island in the British Virgin Islands after former President Barack Obama handed over the White House to current President Donald Trump in January.
A photo of Barack kitesurfing with billionaire Richard Branson also recently went viral on social media.
The Obamas were also recently spotted vacationing on a beach. Michelle appeared to be wearing her hair braided while Barack donned a backward ball cap.
"Obama's on vacation with the hat backwards. He's never coming back," joked one Twitter user.
The Obamas have kept a relatively low profile since leaving the White House in January. Michelle has been making a couple surprise visits to students at Washington, D.C., schools, and the couple has signed a lucrative book deal with Penguin Random House publishing company, The Huffington Post reported.
