A Welcome From Kim Coles!


Hello to all the Curly Girls!!!

Let me introduce you to my fabulous new coils! Now let me tell you the story of how I came to the decision to release them to the world.

What this new look is really all about is a personal journey. I want to show the outer manifestation of the inner work that I have been doing. I am letting go of a lot of things that don’t serve me anymore and hair that doesn’t grow from my head is just a beginning.

My hair has been in micro-braids with human hair extensions since 1991. Prior to that, I had weaves and prior to that, relaxer since before High School. Prior to that... well, I have no memory of what my hair even looked like. When I realized that I hadn't seen my OWN hair in over 30+ years, I knew that I had to make a change. So before my 49th birthday, I got to choppin'! I was scared partly because I did not know what to expect or what products to use. Then, YOU TUBE changed my life forever. There were amazing videos that gave me the courage and the product knowledge to take the leap to become completely authentic… minus color of course. No, I ain't rockin’ gray and kinky at the same time!

Then, I found NaturallyCurly.com and CurlyNikki and I was HOME! I'm learning so much to help me embrace my hair and I'm excited!

You see, as a little girl, I always wanted long, luxurious, bouncy hair just like the girls in magazines and shampoo commercials. Well, I never thought that my hair could do that, so I made it happen artificially. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, but now, what I will focus on is growing my OWN healthy, luxurious, bouncy hair. Well... actually my hair is more springy than bouncy but that's close enough! So, that is what this challenge is all about, getting the know-how and sharing and encouraging each other along the way. I'm still learning and I will share videos and blog posts about what is happening and I look forward to playing with all of you!

Thanks to Nikki for inviting me help co-host this fabulous party. Now, LET'S GET GROWIN'!!

XOXO, KIM

Kim, you look great! Simply marvelous. You look younger and lighter (like something has been lifted from your spirit)! I am so happy for you for being brave and courageous enough to embark on this journey. You are hilarious and I cannot wait to hear your comments as we go through the GOC. Nikki, you should get Kim and Wanda
together for a panel discussion on the wonders of growing natural hair. Now, THAT would be entertaining!
