Happy Sunday, I hope everyone has been getting some quality time with their families and with themselves. I took the time to do a little self-care today, and I have been contemplating doing something new to my hair. I've been natural for maybe 12-15 years now.
This page was initially started to document my hair journey and evolved into something new with my daughter's birth. Now full circle, and I am here to discuss hair. Wash days are tough for us with all this hair, and my daughter's head is extremely sensitive. So detangling comes with tears most times. I generally do styles that can last at least a week. After several discussions, I suggested locking her hair. At first, she didn't seem too interested until I began showing her images of women and children with locs. I think she was actually surprised about the versatility.
She decided she wanted to loc her hair, and in preparation for this, she asked to try new styles beforehand. We recently did her 1st set of box braids installed by me, and she loved it. Next up is big bouncy curls. Allowing her to choose her hair journey is essential to me. She has to learn to decide what happens to her body, and I think this is a great way to start.
I am excited to join her on this journey! I've always considered lociking my hair at 40, which is quickly approaching. So in the new year, we will begin a new journey together. Are you going to be starting a new journey? Any tips or tricks from the loc community are much appreciated. 565
