The Best Gift.

 Kai Lee writes:

I was inspired by my mother losing her hair to chemotherapy due to breast cancer. She gave me the greatest gift next to life. Freedom! This has changed my life and my career goals.

I’m sharing this because I want women that are scared to go natural to realize that you are still beautiful. You just must unveil it!

The Best Gift.


The Best Gift

False Lashes, Make-up, Wigs, and Weaves are not a necessity.

It is my choice.

It does not rule me

Does not Make me

I am beautiful

My gaped teeth

My beautiful hair

I love my hair………..

I am blessed with my curls and turns

I cut it June 2012 during a time in my life that I did not know my own self but, someone that was
likened to an alter ego was known as Sheena.

Every piece cut was

Years of pain

Years of lies

Years of acting

It was like uncovering the true woman inside.

I cut and cut and cut and cut untll I cut 16 inches of hair!

As I cut…..I cried.

As I cut….I laughed

As I cut…I became angry

All of these emotions I slowly began to strip away.

See…I never knew me!

Why? Why did this happen to me?

How could I do this to my self?

See…..I never knew the texture of my hair. It was like being enslaved for over 20 years. Forced mentally to lie to myself and be somewhat of an actress everyday!

Now I am Free!

I can breath!

I am healthy!

I am finally Me!

I am done fighting with my hair to be straight

To be slicked down

Breaking it, Shedding It, Perming It, Killing It!

It is a work of art

I can braid it

Pick it

Twist and dread it

So many choices!

No one’s curls are like mine.

June 5, 2012 the day I fell in love with my self

The day that nothing else mattered but my soul and smile

The day that I let go of Sheena.

She is still there

But, now I walk with head straight and tall

I am an African Queen

I am beautiful

I am unique

I am head strong

I am fearless

I am a cut from the rest!

I am not what you want me to be!

I am me!

Thank you Mother ….You lost your natural long hair to chemotherapy June of 2012. You never lost your crown and glory…You will always remain a Beautiful Queen!
