Hello. I am LV. Although my sister Coco and I are often mistaken for twins, I am actually the oldest by 4 years. My hair was relaxed for over 20 years before I decided that enough was enough. I received my last relaxer in May 2005. I chopped all the relaxer off in July 2005. My hair is now 100% naturally nappy!
I started this website to document my hair journey. Looking at other natural women’s hair albums helped me decide to take the plunge and cut the relaxer out of my hair. I wanted to return the favor to someone else. I’m hoping that someone who is still undecided about whether or not to go natural will run across this website and see something that inspires them to let go of society’s standard of beauty and get in touch with God’s standard of beauty.
Who am I as a person? Well, I’m a wife, mother, daughter, and older sister among other things. I’ve been a stay-at-home mom for almost a decade. I am the proud mom of a son, who I’m currently homeschooling, and a daughter.
Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, I graduated from SDSU with a BA in Psychology and again with a MSW (Master in Social Work degree). I lived in San Diego CA for 11 years before relocating to Tennessee.
