So today I went and get my first loc style. The experience was really gratifying. Mostly because this was an area that I had not gone before and had some reservations about. Like I said in the previous post, I should have no shame for who I am naturally. This journey has been a spiritual (mental) one of self discovery. In that vein, I have thought long and hard about things that are important to me as it relates to my hair and overall appearance. So entertaining a style specific to my culture makes me feel great! I plan to get several more styles in the future. Insert :-)!
