Growing up, I’ve always been surrounded by the idea and culture of relaxed hair – it was something “grown” girls and women with natural hair would graduate to when they’re mature enough. I never really liked that idea of relaxed hair growing up, but I knew that as I was getting older, I would have to make a decision on what I was going to do with my hair (because I can’t have my mom combing it in cornrows my entire life).
When I started university, I explored artificial hair, which somewhat alleviated my natural hair maintenance issue, however, I was never 100% pleased with how my hair looked at any point of time.
At the beginning of 2021, I was introduced to Microlocs and I almost instantly fell in love with the idea of them. To me, they were the ultimate solution to my problem. I was sold with the images I saw of people in their 1-2 year loc journeys and wanted to start mine immediately.
TLDR; Being introduced to microlocs literally allowed me to discover hair freedom. I am now able to freely grow my natural hair healthily and I’m no longer afraid to get my hair wet! I’m truly loving the growth process and I can’t wait to see my growth within the next year.
(I wish I started Microlocs earlier!)
Thank you Locsurious!!
