Nobody Said It Was Easy.....

you know people with locs always tell you how it is now that their locs are fully mature, long, and luscious...but there are very few that will tell you the nit and grit of the journey. then you have some that say things like, 'oh I loved when my locs were your length (short)' but to you (the one with the short locs...lol) this seems like the hardest stage.

no matter what stage you are in before your locs are fully mature i feel that your locs have a mind of its own! i wake up in the morning, thinking that wearing my satin scarf and bonnet would help lay my locs down, they are every which way. at one point it's like they molded themselves into a side mohawk!

it's like my frustrations are almost EVERYDAY!!! i even combed out one of my locs cause i missed my hair in its natural form. it was beautiful, it was coily!!! and i almost contemplated combing out the rest of them. but just twisted it back. even today before posting the video below, i was FED UP!!! but then I jump back to reality and especially after retwisting my hair, I feel a lot better, I feel whole again!

this makes me ask myself why am I growing locs in the first place? not in a way that answering this question will let me know whether or not I should comb them out, but reassurance in myself in knowing why I am embarking on this journey. so I pose a question to you natural hair and loc wearers:

Why are you embarking on your own natural hair or loc journey?

Question for Loc Wearers

Here's a question that I asked on my youtube channel: is it okay to retwist just the front of your hair?
