Kinks and all

Just say NO

My crown is my glory.

Thick locs tell a story.

From the roots to the tip you can get to know me.

I’ve learned the beauty of these napps

And through my care I found myself perhaps.

I was always insecure about my hair and got made fun of in school because of the “beedie bees” on the side of my head. I did really know how to comb or style my hair correctly. When I got old enough I was able to get a relaxer and was soooooooo happy!!  My hair was long and thick and I thought I was too cool for school lol  I liked doing different things with my hair, such as wearing braids, weaves, shirley temple curls etc. But I would NEVER dare wear it natural…so I thought:)

 

Its crazy how a persons hair can tell you alot about a person. Most of my life I tried fitting in and being something that I am not. When I was close to graduating college I went through a sudden change and wanted to find myself… that was when the surprising desire to go natural came about! I had it styled in bantu knots and loved it!

 

I notice that in the beginning stages I got strange looks from people. But suddenly I was confident in myself that I didnt care what anyone thought anymore. Being natural has taught me to be myself. I got tired of frontin and looking like everyone else.  I just wanted to be me!  I am the girl that would wear flip flops and tank tops with holes in my jeans-  No makeup and a big smile on my face. It feels good to not worry about my hair getting wet in the rain, or spending tons of money every 6 weeks to straighten my new growth, ugh…

 

It feels good to show the world the REAL me:)  Kinks and all…
