Lovely Locs

Embarking on my natural hair journey many topics have come up in conversation. In many conversations it has been dreadlocks. Which most people feel comfortable referring to as locs or dreads.
I find that people with locs can’t be classified in the natural hair category(don’t attack me just yet). When one decides to take the route to growing and attaining locs, it takes much more strength and dedication. I find these people to be thee most liberated.
Hair in its most natural state is woolen and locked. No manipulation,the beauty of how natural and free their hair is able to form. Locs are amazing!
Form a new category LOCS. We can no longer associate persons with dreadlocks as apart of the natural hair community. We shall call them something more meaningful.

What is natural hair to you?
What are locs to you?

Until next time….
