When I first made the decision to transform to kinky natural hair, I was so nervous. Kinky curls have taken over the world. Furthermore, I see many African American women and others who are so in love with natural hair.

They feel so comfortable with themselves that they dared to be bold and went all-natural. I too have done the unthinkable and saved my roots from the bi-monthly chemical treatment as we call the infamous perm.

I remember when I used to see one crinkle or just a bit of frizz I was running to the hair store to purchase a perm and I was good to go.

After a while, I grew tired of putting my hair through that unnatural process and I just gave up and let my roots grow out.

As I transitioned it was not easy and it darn sure wasn’t pretty (LOL). I looked like Ms. Celie (Color Purple Character) it was a shock to my appearance.

I can recall nightmares longing for that good Ole perm, but I stuck it out and Viola! Kinky! Kute! Kurls!

It took a lot for me to drastically change my appearance but I was tired of trying to fit in with the in-crowd and look like everyone else. I wanted to be me and in order for that to happen, I had to make a decision to accept me for me.

What’s on the inside shines through on the outside, Beauty! is what’s pleasing to one’s own eye”  I was tired of looking and being what everyone else thought I should look or act like.

For the first time in all my young years, I felt beautiful just the way God intended for me to feel and look originally. When I look in the mirror I now see myself and not a carbon copy of others.

For the first time in all my young years, I felt beautiful just the way God intended for me to feel and look originally. When I look in the mirror I now see myself and not a carbon copy of others.

In my journey of becoming me, I find that I look beautiful either way, straight, kurly, kinky and relaxed. I’m versatile, original and unique and there is no one in the world that looks just like me.

I’m finally so in love with ME, the one and only Miss, LIV — Philly BayBEEy
