Kinky! Kute! Kurls!


Kinky! Kute! Kurls! have taken over the world!  I see many African American women and others who are so in love and 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. 

I fell in love with my Kinky, Kute,  Kurls…

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 was so afraid to see what was really underneath all those years and my silly behind decided to transition during the summer months (SMH). I can recall nightmares longing for that good Ole perm, but I stuck it out and Viola! Kinky! Kute! Kurls!.

Transitioning Summer 2012

 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.

 I realized that many folks will love you today and hate you tomorrow, so why in the world would I want to base my self worth or self identity on how others view me. I also found that in while walking into my season of change and growth revealed true friends and those who call themselves loving me or befriending me (I regrouped). I told a girlfriend of mine that, “If they (meaning anyone) are not able to accept the change and/or growth with in you, then the journey between the two is over. It’s time to find a new traveling partner” They will either hate it or love it! For those who stay the same day after day and year after year are stagnated in the mental and spiritual, which in turn springs forth over into how one may look outwardly.

Through 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. Man it feels good to fall in love with my Kinky, Kute, Kurls.

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