#ConfessionsOfALocdGoddess: What do Your Locs do for You? 

I’ve been watching some loc videos and getting lots of wisdom and encouragement and came across this question: What do your locs do for you?  I decided to give my answer a try lol.

When I first started my locs, I did not have a very significant story behind them, or specific goal I wanted to achieve with them.  I knew that I had reached my point with my natural hair, and was looking for something new.  I had wanted locs for years, but never had the courage to take the step.  When I decided to grow my locs, I felt like I was becoming someone new.  I have become a more confident person.

Everyday I notice more and more people joining the movement and it makes me happy to see that for whatever reason, someone has decided to make this choice. In recent years, I have also seen men and women who are not African American, decide to loc their hair.

We Should Be Grateful for Her Survival

…With little to guide her, except fidelity to her own experience, she documented the survival of love, loyalty, joy, humor and affirmation, as well as tragedy in black life. Who could help wondering what would have been the difference in Zora Hurston’s life and career if there had been a large black reading public, and […]
