Looking thru some pics and decided to share some texture shots. As I’m looking at these pics I can find so many things I hate about my hair! I hate the fact that I started my locs with the interlock method. I feel like comb coils would have given me the thicker ends that I wanted. And I shouldn’t have gone back and forth between interlocking and retwisting during maintenance. I can tell exactly where I interlocked vs where I retwisted and I hate that! I also regret the parts; especially the long middle part I made! Last, but not least, I hate the size of my locs! I wanted them smaller. A lot smaller! Matter of fact, I wanted microlocs.
Even with everything I hate about my hair I still find reasons to Love my hair! For one, I love watching the transformation. When you take the time to really think about it, deciding to loc your hair is a beautiful process! My hair has taught me a tremendous amount of patience. It’s also taught me to love myself even on the days where my hair seemed to defy all laws of gravity! It’s taught me to look for my wisdom with each and every gray hair I find thats gently intertwined within my loc.
I actually said all of that without intending to! I guess I said all of that to say this...enjoy your locs for the process they are taking you thru! Your hair may not turn out how you envisioned in the beginning but learn to look beyond the outside and see what it’s teaching you within! As I encourage you, I encourage myself! Keep going!! We got this!!! 💪🏽
