I am one year being loc'd. My hair was shoulder length again and I couldn't keep up with it so I had to just let it loc. I loved my loose hair but with two small kids and a shrinking budget I just couldn't maintain the kinks like I wanted to. (I'll admit, I had become a product junkie!) So in October 2008 I had my hairstylist perform the most perfect two-strand twist she could do. And that was the birth of my locs today. I have had some ups and downs with them, occasions when I wanted to just cut them all off, tears over the fuzzyness, and moments of immense frustration. But through it all, those trials have solidified my LUV for them!
My obsession with celebrating our hair and finding hairstyles that express our heritage has led to the creation of this blog. I am currently 3 years natural and 2 years into my very first set of locs. Please join me on my journey :)!!
