I knew that it would lead to this. What I mean is: I knew that locs were the destination in my natural hair journey. I stopped perming my hair in 2004, and I have not looked back since. But, it wasn't all great from there. From 2004 until summer 2009 I wore my hair in twists, braids, sew ins, wigs...I wasn't perming my hair, but I wasn't rocking it either. Summer 2009 I decided it was time for some changes. No more braids...I wore my hair OUT. In the past, the only time I wore my hair loose was in between styles, but after reading a few natural hair blogs I decided to quit the weave cold turkey. I have had good and bad hair days, but I am fortunate that I am truly getting to know MY hair.
I am loving this locking process! I know I haven't posted in a while...I have been really busy. I wanted to take a minute to tell you ladies and gentlemen what is going on with my hair. I must say that I love it! It is really fitting into my lifestyle. I will admit that there are times when I am not so pleased with my baby locs. But now I am more carefree. I don't stress over it, and I really just let my hair do its thing.
I will style my hair occasionally, but for the rest of the month I am not going to style it at all. I am going to focus on keeping it moisturized and let it be.
I will keep you posted on my hair. Check out my youtube channel for my update videos.
P.S.- My friend blogs with me as well; she recently did her big chop and is planning on locking her hair.
