Most of us got our curls from our mamas. Some of us are mamas that have passed on curls to our little ones. Maybe you have stepped in to be a mama to a curl. Whatever kind of curly mama you are, this love letter is to you.
Curly mama, thank you for being bright just like my curls. You and my curls are vibrant, bringing a smile to my face on sight. Even in my darkest times, you are light. When I am down, you bring me up. Your bounce is dynamic, elevating others simply with your presence. I love how bright you are, mama and my curls.
You and my curls are vibrant.
Curly mama, thank you for being strong just like my curls. I have feathered and flattened you, tricked and teased you, hated and hid you, I’ve even held you to the flames, but still, you remained. Resilience is your middle name. No matter what I’ve done or how far I’ve gone, you’ve always been here for me. I love how strong you are, mama and my curls.
Resilience is your middle name.
Curly mama, thank you for loving me when I couldn’t love myself. I’ve searched high and low for satisfaction, and you knew all along I had it within myself. You saw there is beauty in all my twists and turns, my frizz and fuzz, way before I ever saw it. Perhaps best of all, when I finally did see the beauty, you didn’t judge or recoil, you embraced me and held my hand as I slowly came back to life. I love how you love me, mama and my curls.
You knew all along I had it within myself.
Mama, you are always with me because so are my curls. Our love is forever intertwined like the tendrils on my head. Who would I be if not for you and my curls, mama? Through all our ups and downs, I wouldn’t trade you for anything – not even straight hair. You are brilliant, enduring, and joyful. My mama, my curls.
