Today before we left to The mountains baby boy’s mom called right before we left like it was an emergency. I asked him what was wrong and he said “mom said not to wear your wig Because your natural hair is beautiful” ⊙_⊙ She’s the cutest!! She is dead set on me looking as black as possible lmao Even when I look lighter in a photo due to a combination of lighting and filter, she’s like “no no white, you Kara (black) baby! No fake hair, curly hair! Beautiful curly hair” She’ll never let me get over it no matter how many times I tell her my hair is not made for winter and wigs are just protective styling. She looks at me extremely suspiciously lmao I love her!~ both her and her son (my fiance) constantly tell me how beautiful I am without make up and wigs I have nothing to hide and I don’t do it based on insecurity (at least not anymore. I finally grew out of it a year ago and enjoy makeup and wigs for a much different reason) But it’s such a great feeling for my kazakh family to love and appreciate that I am a black girl with natural hair ⁄(⁄ ⁄•⁄ω⁄•⁄ ⁄)⁄
