Freeing the Natural Me

I'm entering the once known, but never completely understood knowing it. Does that even make any sense? Let me explain. I'm talking about my hair and how I'm ditching chemical altering on strands. I'm in the process of just letting majority of my hair be low maintained, but I still straighten certain areas weekly, which sadly enough is causing damage to my partial 6-month post BC (big chop). Partial BC I say because, a hairstylist begged to relax my edges and a smidgen section of my sides... I gave in once again, I should have just said now again. It's a fight to remain natural and happy when theres people opposing of it.

Now to the unknown that I want to be properly in a relationship with: my curls. I think in July/August, I want to ditch all extensions and see how I'd look without having long hair. Will the way people see me now see me differently? Will I still feel feminine? I'm so curious and excited to face the newly short-haired Kinky-curly natural me.
