Sooooo…. as we like to say, I did a thing.
After 6 years, 9 months and 3 days, I made a very big decision.
On 12/13/2020, I cut my locs off.
Shocking to some, it was a decision I had been contemplating for a long time now; and the year I’ve had prompted a much need change in myself.
I’ve gone through a lot of highs and lows with my locs. For a long time I loved my locs and what they meant to me. They made me feel confident, sexy, all of the above. But somewhere down the line over this past year, I sort of lost the spark that I once had for them. I downgraded somewhere from love, to just “like”. I also started to see more and more people with shorter cuts and styles and began to want to feel something different.
After everything I had gone through this year, I felt the desire to start over. I’ve been through therapy, and in true fashion of redefining myself; what better way than to change up my style by starting with a brand new haircut. You know what they say; “a woman who changes her hair is about to change her life.”
I hope that much for me is true.
So, while my hair journey won’t be related to locs anymore, I still will post about a new hair and beauty journey related to me rocking a brand new short tapered look, and how I’ve had to revert back to my old school natural hair staples…surprisingly, it’s been just like riding a bike so far! Lol.
I hope you all will still stay along for the ride, as I document a new and improved hair journey. I can’t wait to see where we go from here!!
