“Elvy, your hair is so pretty!” The words soaked deeply into my mind because I dreamt of the day someone would admire my hair just like how I admire others. I have young locs, and yes yes yes!
I am in love. I started my loc’d journey eleven (11) months ago; it has been simply amazing.
I wanted to loc my hair from I was in the ninth grade but I was afraid I wouldn’t keep it. After much thought, frustration and suggestions from friends, I finally decided to make the commitment. I finally decided to do it because I really wanted to try something new and I was lazy.
In the beginning it just looked like regularly twist and my friends kept saying that I would pull it out, yeah (because I’m known for my lack of commitment). It slowly began to take form and with much patience I watched it transformed. Whenever I look at my hair; I see the many possibilities rather than the twist that it really is. I want it to be adorable, thick and flowing so I’m giving it my all. Before locs, 90% of the time my hair was caught in one and getting little to no care.
My goal is to have my locs at tailbone length. I want the length so that I can try some the gorgeous styles I see on facebook and Instagram.
I have so much I would like to say about my hair…. But long story short it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. I love it! Now, I patiently await growth.
Next year this time another update.
What fun and new things have you done with your hair?
