I recently realized I have a passion for natural hair during on my journey toward self-acceptance and love. So much of who I am has always revolves around my hair. It reflects how I feel about myself internally. When I am depressed or stressed, I don't do my hair. If I do look like a million bucks, I feel like a million bucks, even if I'm flat broke. I started documenting my transition on Facebook and it spread to Instagram. I have been amazed at how I have come to love my kinks and curls. I didn't even know how to care for it when a started transitioning. It has been so liberating. I assumed the name LoveLEE around the same time as my transition because I needed to remind myself that I'm worthy of love. The image of women like me is skewed by the media and negative stereotypes. I refuse to confine since of love and beauty to society's standards. I'm starting this blog so other women will know that they don't have to be boxed in either. You are beautiful and flawless just the way you are.

Thanks for joining me.

  1. Very very true. Growing up, my mom would pour coconut oil (like I just gotten out from shower)in my hair and scalp every weekend. While I hated it every single time, I couldnt be more thankful now Ive got strong thick black hair.

  2. LOVE THIS!!! I just signed up on yr FB page…I love my curls but am looking for greater curl definition without having to do so much manipulation. QUESTION: How often do you cowash?
