By the title of this post, you will see that I want to discuss a topic that is […]

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. My locs personally represent my strength and self-confidence. Without these things I wouldn’t have made the choice to get locs; I would have continued to base my decision off of stereotypes and societal views on my choice to wear my hair.
