Hey guys, am pretty new to the locs life but I am already noticing some shocking things. Come to think of it, the more you are used to something, the less likely you might be at noticing some things because you have gotten used to it. I thought to write this post before I get accustomed to this newness.
4 things that will shock you about locs.
- 1- You will be shocked by the amount of people you will inspire with your locs. I know so many people who are considering the locs life but are scared, unsure, worried etc. Seeing you with your locs draws them one step closer to taking that plunge. I have 2 friends who have decided to get their hair loc’d since I loc’d my hair.
- 2-Have you heard the myth that black peoples hair do not grow. Well get ready to bust that myth with your locs. Pictures are a great way to capture change. I am still shocked by how long my sisters hair is just 3.5 years into her locs journey.
- 3-Everyone’s loc journey is different and we get ‘loc’d for different reasons. I know many people have loc’d their hair because they want to reclaim their time. I have always loved spending time on my hair. I find it therapeutic and creative to do my own hair. I never thought that spending less time on my hair would be something I would enjoy . I am still shocked by how much I am enjoying not spending time on my hair. It has made the little time I do spend on my hair even more precious and special.
- 4-Finally, the biggest shock is how much less hair I lose when I wash my hair. While my hair was an afro I thought it was pretty healthy but could never understand why I would lose so much hair during each wash. Barely 7 months into my locs journey and I am losing less hair and loving it 🤗🤗.
So these are the things that I have noticed and been shocked by so far.
Are you on the locs journey, do you agree? Anything you have been shocked by that should be added to my list.
