I AM Who I BE

The Born This Way episode was so much fun, my twitter account has been blowing up ever since I wore the “No Weave” Tshirt! Everyone wants to know if that was my real hair and what was the reason behind the Tshirt! We thought it would be honest and funny for me to wear that Tshirt, a lot of ethnic women are not comfortable with or proud of having kinky or curly hair or they’re hair is so difficult to deal with they just wear weaves. I wear weaves on the show to protect my mane, I LOVE MY NATURAL HAIR, but at work I would have to put heat on it everyday and I don’t wear relaxers to keep it straight. I have naturally curly hair so I would never want to put chemicals in it. Next question: was that my natural hair? No, it was a weave we just curled up to look like mine (shout out to the hair department LOL) We were filming three episodes that week and it takes 2 hours for me to take my weave down and wash it and 4 hours to put the weave back in! No time to take a weave down and put it back in, continuity put us in a tough position! So we just curled it up! But I did this blog because I thought it would be cool to show what my natural hair looks like! Just like the day I posted my Au Natural “No Makeup” for the Seventeen Magazine Body Peace Council! I believe in loving yourself no matter what and accepting those things you can’t change or even working on those things you don’t like that you can :) That’s why I loved that Pretty/Unpretty mash-up that Lea and Dianna did. It was so honest about how we women feel about ourselves sometimes. I always try to remember. We are all fearfully and wonderfully made! I hope this blog puts some questions to rest LOL! BYE!!!!!
