My Locs Helped Me Find Myself

BlogHer Original Post

2012

In this journey, I learned so much about myself. Wearing locs, especially in the short phase, forced me to own my beauty in every way, which was major in my becoming who I am today. I realized that locs are just as versatile as non-loc hair, and the sky is the limit in what they can do. My mom has come around, too. She even helped me decide to dye the tips of my locs teal two months ago!

While certainly one of the most difficult beauty/physical decisions I've made, growing locs is in the top five of most transformative things I've ever done, inside or out.
