Hi Nik!


Lately I’ve really been feeling my hair. Each day I am more and more proud of my choice to wear my hair in its natural state. It so me and I adore it! A few weeks ago I went to a salon to get a trim and a blow-out twist which increased my swag a few more notches ;0)

If you could write your hair a love note, what would you say?

Dear [insert pet hair name here],

You are so very awesome! I love everything about you and how you have complimented who I am so very well. There is none other exactly like you and we are a perfect pair.

You have my undying devotion,

    Dear Nappily Be,

    I never thought i'd see the day when i would honestly say i love you! From perms,to cut,to color, to blunt i have taken you through a lot! Now it's time to get back to the roots, take you out more often, wine and dine you. I'm not afraid to show you off or tell me friends about you. I love the way you feel, to the naps and on to the little curls. I promise i will take care of you and i don't ever plan on hurting you ever again.

    With much Love
    Marie!! <3

    Beautifully Natural,

    I can't believe how beautiful you are.The curls and waves that were hidden under chemicals. How you make me smile on the daily basis. we get to meet each day as i plant my hands on my crown an glory for our daily routine of water, leave in conditioner, moisture and to seal the deal our oil. how perfectly you look as i see the reflection in the mirror.

    All that beauty in it's natural state for all to behold. I love me some me now, can't hide behind the creamy crack. I love the way you look and feel on a daily basis.

    I am beautifully natural,

    Beautifully Natural,

    April 30th, i will never forget that day, (THE BIG CHOP). After years of chemicals since I was 12 years of age, I was ready to take my next journey of life my next phase. No longer could i hide behind my hair. Beautifully natural am I. Nubian, queen, daughter of the most high God.

    Peprbronze,

    I do have a question: How and what do you use to keep your hair moisturized. There are so many products and it gets confusing.

  • Bianca Williams says:

    Dear my tresses of love,
    You fought the odds and made it through. Chemicals, pressing combs, and then dying in high school. I never know the natural you ever since I was little. It took going away and being on my own in college to take you in my hands and realize your true beauty. You are beautiful in all forms of curl. I would never replace you!!!

    Love Bianca

  • Kari C (bronzebeachbaby) says:

    Dear BFF,

    I know…I know…I have dyed and fried you over the years. I've neglected you and cursed you and even wished I was with someone ohter than you.

    And you alwasy came back and stuck around…knowing that one day I'd treat you right…hoping.

    And now as I anoint you in oils and learn how to take care of you…to caress you and love only you…You are the one there for me…you are the one growing and thriving and showing me the way…

    Thank-you for your patience and guidance and leading me to my individuality and confidence.

    Sorry it took so long

    Love Kari C (bronzebeachbaby)

  • JWalt22 says:

    Dear kinks and curls,
    I know I've done you dirty for the longest… Relaxers on top of color on top of daily heat… It's no wonder you refused to be healthy…
    But all of that's changed now and I am getting to know you and loving all of your different moods and textures… And I have to say, I love ya!
    Can't wait to see where we go in this journey!!

  • Chrissy M. says:

    Dear Sexy
    Your curls light up a room
    Your fierceness causes heads to turn
    And mouths to drop open
    just to pay you a compliment.
    You make any outfit (no matter how bad it is) look good…
    And you make me look fierce
    I used to keep you locked up
    and tamed to death with chemicals out of a box
    but trusting you to be free
    has given me a chance
    to see I am beautiful just as God made me.

  • KC says:

    Dear Rebel,
    I love you oh so dearly. It is because of you that I stick out in a crowd like a shining star at midnight. You wave, curl, and kink at your own leisure; and though this can be frustrating when I'm not in a peaceful mindset to do my hair, when I am in a "go with the flow" mood you help me create styles I never would have dreamed of!
    YOU force me to do me because no one has hair like ME 😀

    Sincerely,
    KC <3

    Dear HAIRett,

    Thank you for being patient with me. I know I haven't taken the best care of you at the beginning of our relationship but I learned how to love you before it was too late. I'm so grateful that the next years of our lives together will be filled with Moisture, Patience and Love. You're amazing and I'm honored to be taking care of you!

  • Natasha says:

    Dear Nike,

    I remember when I contemplated getting to know you, and taking the leap of faith to transition. I remember when I saw and touched the first little spiral "pop" at the nape of my neck. I remember when you kicked and fussed at the relaxed ends weighing you down. We fought during massive detangling sessions, and made up with weekly (deep conditioning) therapy. We've made it this far and I look forward to growing with you. Thanks for helping me embrace my natural beauty.

    Yours forever,
    Natasha

    Dear Naturally Me,
    Thank you so much for putting up with me and growing for me even when I would force you to straighten your beautiful kinks and coils. Thanks for helping me to see and accept that you are beautiful just the way you are. Thanks for helping me to see that true beauty is real. True beauty is YOU.

  • Gloria D. says:

    Dear Honey Locks,

    You are amazing. You have been so supportive of me, even when I haven't always done the same for you. I love that you are always doing your own thing, even when I try to stop you. You own your style, and so your fabulousness is due to you and you alone. Thank you for making me fabulous with you!

    I love your individuality. I love your large size. I love your ability to turn every head in the room. I love being identified with you. I love that people recognize me in crowded shopping malls because of you. I love you even when you are crazy. I love that you and I work best together when we let our true selves shine through, not when one of us tries to change the other. I love every curl, kink, and precious lock that makes you who you are, and I love the fact that you are still constantly changing. I know you so well, and yet, you are still a mystery, and I love you for it.

    Did I mention that I love you? You're probably used to hearing it, lol, since I'm not the only one that loves you. However, I am thankful that I am the only one that can claim you as MINE. 😉 Here's to the rest of our lives together!

    Love always,

    Gloria

    Dear Lover Locks,
    WOW! If I would've known how BEAUTIFUL, SEXY, and AMAZING you were I would've never let you go. I let people tear us apart, they told me you were ugly and called us names. I gave into their pressures and hid you under that awful creamy crack. I'M SORRY LOVE. After all those years of hiding you under weaves and wigs I was fed up! I knew what I needed to do. So, we started seeing each other, watching youtube figuring out how to make this relationship work and here we are 2 years later going strong! I will NEVER let anyone come in between us again. You are beautiful Thank you for giving me the confidence to be naturally me.
    YOURS FOREVER,

  • Susan says:

    Cotton and curls,

    You are my Kaleidoscope.
    A reflection of all the unique and different facets of who I am. Lights reflecting playfully off of each kink and curl bringing a sigh of contentment.

    You are my armor.
    Fortifying me, shielding me. washing me with a sense of FEARLESSNESS and strength that I was unaware I could even possess.

    You frame my carriage.
    Showing my confidence as I emerge into a room and before my lips have even uttered a word.

    You embody my spirit.
    Introducing me to myself as if for the very first time. Flirtatious and unpredictable.

    You knew who I could be all along,
    I just needed to let you show me…..me

    All my love………….

  • Siobhan says:

    Dear Ms. Fluffy,

    Wow you are amazing, getting me noticed, making me feel on top of the world. Oh Ms. Fluffy, how we have grown. Gray turned to fire red from your lover henna. You and my husband seem to have a true love affair. Oh Ms. Fluffy, how the salon, relaxer and hot comb visits are far, far behind.

  • Lisa Michelle says:

    My Curlicious Curls,

    I fell in love that fateful day in 2004…I never knew I could be so enamored with you. You are my obsession, my infatuation, my passion, my crush. Even when I let you go, I knew you'd return with the fervor of the oceans waves and you did not disappoint. And even when we have disagreements, I know it's because we both want to be our best. So thank you, this hair of mine, for always giving me something to do and a curl to play with.

    Sincerely yours,
    BigHairBrwnEyes

  • Teri says:

    Dear Hair,

    I don't know you very well since I just met you, but I love your uniqueness. You seem to have many personalities. You're soft and curly in some areas and not so much in others and a few shades of grey. Some days you are well behaved and some days you need a time out. I guess that's why I love you, please don't change.

  • Jivelene says:

    To my beloved Curly-Spice,

    During the past ten months of our courtship, you have endured the long and extended culmination of my twenty-one year relationship with a more 'relaxed' suitor. While it was not love at first sight upon our introduction, the conclusion is indeed, love. There are no words to describe your patience and strength, merely that I am beholden by your presence. Only you can make me feel so joyous yet fearful; so exalted yet humbled. Let me sky-write your name in the clouds or chart your likeness in the stars to proudly share our reverence for all the world to see! Forevermore, I am you and you are me.

    Unabashedly yours,
    Jive

    Forever,

    Dear Crowning Glory,

    I’m amazed at how fierce you are. With you I’ve learned to expect the unexpected. I’ve learned to relax and enjoy the ride. I can’t believe that it took me so long to get to know you. When I think about all the years I wasted manipulating and chemically processing you I’m disappointed in myself. Then I realize that we’ve got our whole lives to live and I begin to smile. I’m excited by the possibilities and I’m ready for the journey.

    Yours Truly,

    Katrice

    P.S. Hope you don’t mind when I tell others… “Yes, you can touch it.” I do it because I love the way they react when they realize how soft you are.

  • lyss says:

    Dear Crowning Glory,

    How can I begin to describe the mixed feelings that evaded my every thought a year ago when I decided to transition? It's true, I was scared and confused, questioning my vanity and sanity when I anticipated the Big Chop. However, I found that I never really truly cared for you, cared about what you could provide me with(confidence, pride etc) until I took that first step and I saw your damaged ends fall to the ground. I silently vowed that I would begin to see your importance and take care of you. I would weather the storm of insecurity that came with such short hair. I'm sorry I doubted you. I realized within 5 minutes that I was a changed person and I felt more aware of myself. I realized with each day that I held my head higher and smiled more. Whether it was my subconscious making up for lack of hair or realization that I didn't need really need it to be me, I found myself in these last 8 months and I look forward to a lifetime of ups (i.e. fierce twistouts) and downs (i.e. endless hours of twisting).

    Keep Truckin' Glory, your ever faithful servant,
    Lyss

Keep you in more protective styles, and most important of all, do my absolute best to keep hubby distracted whenever he views the transactions on our debit card, in order to avoid the dreaded side eye when he sees how much we've spent on hair products.

    Dear Miss Thang,

    We need to talk. You're breaking my heart the way you seem to ignore my efforts to help you grow and flourish. Meanwhile, I'm breaking your ends trying to mend you into perfection while constantly trying to make you into something that you're not. We've been stuck in the same predicament for the past 7 years, so lets change this. Your different, carefree and unpredictable and I enjoy those attributes about you. I want you to know that you mean the world to me and I'd love to see us work this out and grow together. While you grow long, I'll observe and educate myself about what makes you happy. No matter what I will always love you unconditionally.

    Dear lovely,

    I know I have kept you locked up for the past six weeks (as part of a 2-month grow out challenge, I have had my hair in a sew-in), I never knew I could miss anything so much. Even after the first two weeks without you, I was in agony. I know that this time apart is the best for both you and I, but it hurts my soul to miss you this much. I will be seeing you shortly, in about two weeks, and I have never been so excited in my life!! I know that you will be healthy, strong, shiny, (and getting your 1st henna treatment) and i am beyond elated!!

    See you soon my love,

    I'm so glad that I finally got to know you for myself. I'm so glad that I didn't keep going by what people thought you should be or how they think we should look together. I'm so glad I gave our relationship a néw,fresh,healthy start. I really believe if I keep giving you the love and attention you've been drying out and dying for for years that we will grow together. I love the new us and the people will talk regardless of what we do. Our relationship is so natural.

    I know it hasn't been the easiet journey. We are in this together and I will never give up on you.

I am learning to listen to your needs and not just my own. Just when I question what I'm doing, you show your beautiful coils and it is at that moment I realize the Reward will always be greater then the Struggle. IloveyouRudy!

    My dear tresses,
    I know we've had our ups and down but you have been with me through thick and thin….literally. Even though you sometimes drive me crazy, i've grown to adore you in all your kinky, curly, coily glory. You are the finishing touch to an edgy outfit, and a perfect accessory all year round. I'm really so happy that we have gotten to know each other better. Looking forward to you sticking with me on this crazy journey.
    Much love,

    Dear My Special Friend,

    I love you so much! I know I tell you that everyday, but I wanted to make it publicly known that you are truly the love of my life right now. I don't know why I kept you hidden for so long! Thank you for bringing out the best in me, and for boosting my confidence to levels I didn't know existed. I will always remain faithful to you.

    Much Love,
    Barbara

    Dear Curly-Q,

    I wish I could explain what took me so long to realize your beauty. I'm sorry for the drama I put you through and promise to pamper you forever more.

    You belong to me!

    Dear curls,

    Everyday we spend together is a new adventure in love. We've had our ups and downs our twist and turns and you still come bouncing back in that irresistible way you do. You compliment me like nothing else can and it gives me pride to show you to the world. Thank you for being patient with me as I learn how to take care of you the way you should.

    eternally devoted,

    You fine thang, you,

    We've been together for a couple of years and things have been serious from day one. I knew this wasn't a fling from the time I laid eyes on you. I love to pamper you every time I get the chance and I must say that I'm sprung…just pleasing you, pleases me! Every time I fail to give you the attention you need, the surprise of water and oils perks you up every single time. It's like nothing ever happened and you reach for the heavens again…which makes me smile. I vow to give you my tender loving care whenever you call for it.

    Hello Hair (aka Tete Boullete 36),

    It's ncie to meet you. You aren't nearly as crazy as you were made to sound. I grew up thinking that you were tough, that you ran away and made me a bald baby for a few months, and that you were useless without a relaxer. But I'm so glad that we met!

    We've gone through puffs, flat twists, braid-outs, and we just reached another milestone – a bun! This journey has been interesting but worth it.

    Let's keep growing !

    Another chance you have given me and I will make it work. I'll treat you right giving you the love and attention I neglected to do oh so long ago. The trims will come often, The comb will be wide toothed and it will glide through you with a tender touch, for you are delicate but strong. I love the way you coil up at the end of my twist.I love when your strected to your fullest length or when your a shrunken diva. You're soft like cotton and coily like a spring. Your beauty has no limits and your styles no restrictions. I am blessed to have you adorn my crown, my lovely coily kinky hair.

    We’ve been through some hard times but we’re getting closer. I’m so glad that I made the decision to go on this journey with you. Getting to know you really has been an amazing experience that I will never regret.

    P.S…I forgive you for that rebellious stage you went through. I’m sorry I threatened you. It won’t happen again.

    My Dearest Nala,

    Yu are big, soft, and beautiful! I can't believe it took me 22 years to finally see you. I look forward to growing with you over the years. I don't know if you realize the effect you have had on my style and confidence, but it is tremendous! Others may not understand our love affair but it's the most pure and vulnerable feeling ever. I promise to never abuse you again! Now…we just need to work on how we respond to this New Orleans humidity!

    Love Always,

    Dear No Longer Stranded,

    I know we've had some challenges…split ends, uneven layers. I blame myself for most of it since I didn't know how to treat you. I'm better tho right? I'm giving you all the goodness you will ever need now (henna, moisture, natural oils and sulfate freedom). I'm so proud of how far we've come!

    In spite of our differences, you are growing and flourishing! I look forward to many many years of you running down my back.

    Love,

    Dear new and improved tresses,
    Who knew?! I certainly didn't expect to loooove the way you make me feel every time I twist, pick out, or define your curls and kinks. Why did I wait so long? Thanks for being so healthy, thick and life changing. Smoooches!!!

  • Jamika Kirk says:

    Dear Kink Kirk,

    I'm so happy we are finally together. I want to say thank you for being strong when random people come by and touch you (in clubs, museums, stores, etc). You are so nice to them and me (especially me, by going by in style so easily). Moreover, thank you for telling me when you need oils and moisture. I have never had such an intimate relationship with you before we went natural. You have truly given me a sense of self and I realize that I do not need all that other to be beautiful. I will continue to enjoy our time together as we grow and learn on this journey called life.

    I love you,

    J. Kirk

    P.S.
    You really make me who I truly am today. 🙂

    Dear Shunnie,

    You have brought me pure joy these past 10 months. Where have you been all of my life?! I am sorry you were bound in chains masked by severe damage and hair abuse. Since I found you, I want to share you will everyone. I accept you baggage, fairy knots and all. Your psuedo-sandy locks make me smile and I yearn to caress your kinks. Mommie Love you and I promise to take care of you.

  • Raffy says:

    Dear My Wild Curly Shnookums,

    What a blessing you are to me! Please forgive me for underestimating your sexiness as a teen, and trying my hardest to hide your natural flair. From your ability to curl tight, to your more relaxed modes due to a little help from your flexi friends, you make me who I am. Even in this 100+ degree Texas weather, you stand your ground and flee the frizz! If I could I would grab you a box of chocolates and take you dinner, just to show you how much I appreciate you. If it were not for you, I would look like her. (And we all know we never want to look like another woman…period).

    Hugs, Kisses, and Smooth Conditioning,

    Dear Indie (Yes, that's my hair's name),

    I know it was a long time coming. I neglected you for so long by allowing stylists to put that creamy crack in your hair, then using all that heat to make it so "pretty". I'm sorry for all the years of abuse, for being embarrassed to show your true beauty for all the world to see.

    All this time wasted! But now I can see how beautiful you really are and how wonderful you can be. Sure you get your attitudes at times and I'm starting to figure out when you want to be pampered and when you'd rather just be left alone. But I love every single thing about you, even that side of you. I love that one day you can be all cute and pretty and the next be edgy. I love that I can wear you everywhere without feeling threatened by rain, wind, humidity. My fingers dive into you to touch your softness and your coils to the point you're probably sick of my fingers. But it's just to show my devotion to make you look good.

    I promise that I will never neglect you again and I will do my best to make you shine to the world.

    Love,
    Marion (aka BraidsnTwists)

    Dear Bella,

    Now looking though pictures of us when I was liittle girl, I saw how long and thick and healthy you were before a perm came between us. Twenty years of breakage and shedding I just couldn't take anymore. Untill my little girl came into the world and reminded me how beautful being natural is. Now we've been on a two year jounery of getting to know each other again, and I will never let you go again were in this for the rest of my life. I love you to much to ever part with you!!

    Rocking out with you Always,

    Dear Crown/Bff,

    How are you?! Hope you're not mad at me. I KNOW I'm not that good of a friend all the time. I neglect you sometimes, and frankly, sometimes I do you dirty. But you? You stick by me no matter what. You make me look good, whether I've been good to you or not. You start conversations with cool people, and for the mean muggers, you stare them down!

    I can't believe that I used to act embarrassed about you. But,well… lets face it, you ARE a little gangsta.You do what.ever.you.want.Full stop. Period. You stand up when I want you to lay down, you wind up and spring forward when I want you to relax. Absolutely, gangsta… and now, I know that's something I should admire. Why should you sit down if you don't feel like it? You are a little schizo too. I mean in the same humidity you can either shrink back or swell up.Let's not even mention all the different kinds of strands you have, my schizo boo. Quite frankly, I can only ever guess what you're going to do, but I love you so much! You're always there and making me look good! I'm going to try and be as good to you as you are to me.

    Love,

    Hey Beauty!,

    I know I know… but I can't help myself; you're GRAND! I figured this time I'd write you a note instead of sneaking up behind you with love taps throughout the day; I know sometimes you just don't feel like being touched. BUT THATS NEITHER HERE NOR THERE. I just wanted to tell you that I was soooo proud of you yesterday. I was so proud to have you by my side… er- top(?). We shined together in front of all those people; I elegantly explaining the purpose of my research and you giving me subtle bounces of encouragement. Thanks for telling me about that shea butter that needed to be rubbed in more in the back (i know i get a little overboard with sealing those twist of yours the night before a big day!). OH OH OH! And there was some one starring at you yesterdayyy!!! He was a cutie too. He was way in the back, with the white linen shirt. He told me that you looked effortless… EFFORTLESS.. who says that anymore! I think you two would look good together. Sooo, i'ma just go 'head and hook that up for you. K!?

    P.S. We're still on tomorrow for our weekly pamper session right?

    – Yours

    I can't believe your braid out today. Every time I passed a mirror today, I had to do a double take to make sure it's really you. Sorry for the repeated touches and fluffs. But you are too gorgeous and I can't help myself.

    Hey Girl,
    When I got on the metro yesterday and someone said "Oooh somebody smells good" I knew it was us. I was tickled pink because prior to going natural I had resigned myself to thinking that the best we would ever smell would be after a fresh perm. Who knew we could walk past folk leaving behind the light fragrance of coconuts and berry smoothies? I didn't. I was so proud of you. I know you were too. You stood a little taller all day. I saw you. You go girl!

    I have treated you like a step child for the last several years, from weave to braids, to quick weave, dye jobe every four weeks, followed by touch ups every three. You have stayed strong and have been here for me trhough thick and thin(literally). I am so proud of you and I am so grteful that you chose to stay with me.
    Now that we have begun our new journey together, I look forward to repaying you and giving you nothing but TLC to show my love, affection, and gratitude towards you. I will never mistreat you again.
