Coffee Coloured Tresses brought to you by the letter K

This month not only marks my anniversary of becoming natural, it has also been one year since I decided to create this blog and it is only right that I introduce myself (finally) and let you see a glimpse of the person behind the blog.

1 Year Anniversary Giveaway

This day last year I took up a pair of scissors and began snipping, it has been one of the best decisions I have made. It was not without obstacles, trials, and days of complete frustration. Am I where I expected to be length wise? No. Thickness, sort of. But I'm happy...really happy actually. I can't make my hair be what I want it to be but I love that, it's like an extension of me. Lola (yes, I named my hair) and I have our bad days and our good days but I couldn't see it any other way.

My Journey- @ my 6 month mark I had a major set back, around my 9th month or so I cut 2 inches of scab hair off

 To celebrate I am having a 1 year anniversary giveaway!!!

I'm originally from Brooklyn, NY and one of the things that I miss is the creativity of the individuals out there. Don't get me wrong there are creative people out here in Arizona I just find you have to search for it. In NY you just walk out your door and it's all around you in fashion, stop into any train station and you will find break dancer, singers, saxophone and guitar players. Undiscovered artists on the sidewalk, people beating buckets like they were drums...I can go on and on. This inspired me on what I should do for my giveaway. In your most creative way answer this following question....

Why did you become natural? 
Why have you decided to transition to natural hair?

Poems, rapping, singing, art, spoken word, where ever your mind takes you. Just be you, everything else will shine through.
