DIY

Do it yourself….that’s what Youtube and Nappturality are all about, you know empowerment. I have honestly ran into more people who have started their locs on their own than who go to a loctician. But I am sure when I do the math more people go to the barber shop or beauty salon so what’s my point. My point is this, it is good to have the desire and skills to do it yourself but never forget about the talented ones who dedicate their lives to the art form.

Veronica every time you do my hair new and different people compliment your work. This time a I got a compliment from a woman in her 60s, how cool is that. I figured it was all because of you so why not tell you. There are those who can visualize my length and they ask me am I going to let my hair grow as long as possible. I say almost always say,”No.” That’s not so important to me as much as having a style that I like. In variably, those who are closest to me are quiet about my journey, except for Naturaldisiac. They don’t say anything one way or the other, good or bad. They aren’t supportive or non supportive. Your artwork has done that. They are lookers though, just silent. Your talents have transformed me and encouraged me to be patient on this journey and accept myself over compliments. Compliments are nice and they help but they aren’t required. They make you vain and dependent. I would not pin my journey on the attention of others; that is not what this journey is about. It’s about self discovery and an internal strengthening of one’s ideals and ambitions. Something about this journey has told be that. I appreciate your skills, I appreciate you.

I didn’t post any pics because I wanted to show some growth… So I will post them after my next retightening.

Peace.

On your mark…get set…

Go! When did I become a runner? Answer: When it rains? Today for the first time I found myself running like Carl Lewis over the courtyard because the rain was getting my unlocked hair wet. I was hurdling curbs and bushes like it was a track and field event . It seemed like the only thing that got drenched was my head. Though my shirt was wet, just mildly. Regardless, I forgot my umbrella (though I rarely carry one) and didn’t have anything to use as a shield other than my books for class. I didn’t know that I was that guy who cared about what the rain would do. But, I was.So anyway, when my head got wet it itched like hell. Too funny, I will scratch it some if you were wondering. OK I will a lot who am I fooling!

My Loc Buddy…

First off how is she going to come into the game after me and lock before me! She was swearing this was the case and I was in complete denial. I was saying how could this be. I mean she ain’t Ceilie from the Color Purple. Though she claims she has hair as nappy as hers and I am yet to see it. So when she was raving that her process has begun I felt like the loc gods has overlooked me and blessed her instead.[sad face turned into Megamind] Let me tell you had that happened I would have been like Cain…or like Predator and blew this piece up and that one bud she was though she had! Thank you Veronica for saving all of mankind from another end-the-world movie because I was going to make it! As for you…Naturaldisiac…chill, put your seatbelt on and enjoy the ride!

Getting to know you…

I have just recently started touching my hair and being sort of normal with it. For some reason until my last visit with Veronica I had this badge of honor that I would not touch my hair under any circumstances. I don’t know why other than I figured that when my stylist cleans my hair she really handles my head. She really get the trash out. She let me in on a little secret (I am probably the only who didn’t know this) but for as long as my hair is dry it is pretty durable. Now that was some news that I needed to hear because I was walking around here using everything but my hands like I was playing soccer thinking I would interrupt all that was going on. .Futher proof (to myself) that I am new to the game! I am rubbing Fantasia Hair Polisher Olive Moisturizing Shine Serum through my hair these days. It has help with the itching so things are good.

Freshness Date: 11/10/11

I’m so fresh I am so clean! Yeah! I saw Veronica on Thursday. She did the thang. We watched ‘Juice‘ and talked about the progress of my hair. All looks good from Dr. V’s perspective. She had a plan for those loc bandits on the backrow. They were running the block but got a curfew now! Something tells me their locked down.

Next visit she promises to have ‘Set It Off’ on the tube. Special request…from yours truly. Got to set it off for the holidays! Even though Queen Latifah was da man! lol…There were some good scenes that I liked in that movie. It’s going to be good. You have to love a loctician who has whatever movie you can think of ,but that the greatness of V.

Here’s the freshness sealed on 11/10/11. I likes!
