    Default Random Lock Thoughts 2019 style...

    An associate asked me multiple questions about my locks:
    -How do I maintain?
    -Is that all my hair?
    -How do I do each one (tighten?)
    -bla bla

    Then went on to state that she perms because she likes versatility. She likes variety of hair styles to compliment her weekend love of canoeing/paddling on the water. Then she says she's just too lazy to do anything with it. I was confused.

    If you have had locks for any significant amount of time-well you get it.....

    -Versatile, check
    -Lazy style, absolutely check
    -Switch-upable-All day long

    I chose to stay in my lane, smile and mention that it's all about perspective. It's been a while since I've had these type of conversations, so it tickled me.

    "Girl, you ain't got to explain nothin' to me." Is what popped into my head after I read this. I remember back in the day when this may have made a little bit of sense.

    Sometimes, I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry.
    It merely astonishes me.
    How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company?
    It's beyond me.

    Yeah, 'cause folks are still ashamed of what comes of their scalp. It seems so lame these days when people give excuses for not allowing their hair to be 'free'. If you want to perm it go ahead, but stop with the excuses.

    Still the same excuses - I was reading something the other day about "Locs are not professional" and I almost set my ABW free... almost
