    Default "But your hair is so pretty"

    Ummmmm.


    Ya'll know i've been considering this loc thing for a really long time. But now I have a break between my swimming lessons for a few weeks and im thinking of taking the plunge.

    But why. oh why. Has every stylist, friend, and family member said to me "Why do you want to Loc? You have such pretty hair, Soft Hair, Thick hair."

    And i'm thinking to myself won't it be all those things... just Loced?

    Help me understand this thinking.

    I also must say these were many of the same folks who told me not to go natural so meh.

    I don't like extensions really and I don't like dealing with loose hair.

    You have to understand that locs are only for nappy-headed folks who can't grow their hair any other way. Also, they don't shine, they always look dirty, they look like they smell, etc.

    </sarcasm>

    People are IGNORANT, even in 2018. From what you've said, it sounds like locs would work for you. Go for it. If you don't like them you can always cut them off and start over.
    Hello, 2021. Glad to see you. Hope you're bringing us goodness and light this year!

    Yeah, but I'm guessing it's a "good grade" (which is what "soft" is code for) and ERRYBODY knows "good hair" can get long.

    I struggle when I hear 'soft' hair. I really do.
    I know that's code for a 'straighter' texture.
    But it's just ignant.
    Talk to me about your install. Talk to me about your tightening method.
    Saying soft means you may need to reconsider your techniques to have soft AND locked hair.


    That's all.


    ***CNG Your hair is growing, it's just busy locking right now. The matrix is the foundation of the lock and takes from 12-18 months to solidify before the hair shoots into a growth phase. #lockon.
