I’ve calmed down quite a bit but feeling a bit antsy about having my locs for a lifetime. I think for now my goal will be to just keep them until they are shoulder length and then decide what the heck to do.
It is very apparent that I need to return to the latching method because twisting/palmrolling is for the birds. It requires you to remember which direction you twist/roll each time. Again, for the birds. So next week when I wash and refresh my hair I’ll pull out one of those little latching tools. I’ve had one of them for a couple of years. I believe I held on to it since my last full set of locs in 2005. Deep down I must have known that I’d be back. This is what my hair looked like right before cutting in December 2005:
And this is where we are now:
(a whacky shot of my nappy hair) LOL
It is going to be a long journey. But I’m in for the ride.
S/N- I have been with my current organization since September (approx 6 months). The first time they saw me in August I had a curly/kinky twist out. Then shortly after starting I was there with a mohawk/frohawk. LOL. Now I’m sporting curly locs. I’ll be back to post their reactions after the 18th.
