Confessions of a KINKY chick…

Who would have thought that my straight and narrow ways would change? My love of the traditional or what is considered normal would be thrown out the window! All sorts of cliches floated around my head ” Life is short”,”Take the bull by the horns”, “Just do it”. You have to understand that in my mind I have always associated straight with beautiful. As a child I remember the hair pulling, pain and crying every time my hair was touched. Who would want that again right? Then Bella was born. This bright eyed beauty with wild curls… What was I going to do? I tried my best to tame it and then she asked.. “Mom can you make my hair straight like yours so I can be beautiful?”. My heart was broken. My 4 year old felt her cults were not beautiful and it was my fault! At that moment I took a vow to learn to love my hair and teach my 4 year old that curly is beautiful. If I didn’t accept my hair how can I teach her to love hers? So I did it THE BIG CHOP is complete and I love it! Now to start playing with my TWA( teeny weeny afro)
