It's a wonderful thing to want to have your natural hair back and having the right attitude is a great start! Wear your favourite comfy outfit so that when you're done you can see the new hair and you both together at the same time
It'll lessen the shock a bit.
Also, I have many half filipino and black friends and they have embraced their curls recently as well so I hope you will enjoy them and learn something about your new self.
Oh and welcome to the forum! ^^
