I Want Locs!!!

Did I tell you all that I am thinking about locing my hair?? I'm about 70% sure that I want them in, like, next week! I may just try them myself to see the look, then take them out until I am ready. Najahface breaks down some different ways to start your locs here!

This portion was cross-posted at Scandalous Beauty:

Yes, it's true. I want to loc my hair! I have been thinking about it for months and months now, but haven't officially expressed my feelings about it. But, as the days go by, I constantly check out locs of all shapes, sizes, lengths and colors. I even re-watched videos of myself in twists just to make sure that I was comfortable with the look. I want my locs to be about the size of my pinky finger!

I have had such an awesome time during my natural journey! I haven't had a relaxer since 2005!!! There are a ton and a half of options for natural hair, and I haven't done a tenth of them. But I just love, love, love the locked look!!! I must have it!!! I will probably procrastinate and not get them done for a few more months, since I already bought those huge tubs of Miss Jessie's Baby Buttercream andQhemet Biologics Amla & Olive Heavy Cream. That stuff was NOT cheap, so I will NOT loc until I use them entirely! To be on the safe side, I'll probably keep my hair twisted more often.

Doesn't Lauryn Hill look amazing in the picture? Billy B. was the face beater, clearly.

I just saw some pics of Goapele the other day and I said to myself "locs might be a good look". I am insterested in how yours will turn out! Keep us updated.

Locs are serious! My cousin wanted locs so she had her hair braided with yarn first to see how it would look. She decided against them after and went for a relaxer. =/

Hey! Do you know that I love your videos on youtube? I was searching for videos by black women who can show us how to do great makeup. At first, the only ones I found was of white or asian girls. They were good, but not what I was looking for. Now I found your channel and you are amazing. And everybody can do great makeup with your help!

I'm right beside you on this one. I have been a loc 'stalker' for the past few years - checking out all the loc YouTube videos and sites etc...

I set a hair-length goal for myself - past shoulder length with twists - when I accomplish this I'm sure I will also loc - of course I will be closely following your journey :o)

Awww I am so happy to catch up on your blogspot. I'm even happier to read that you want to loc your hair. I don't wanna knock the ones who have started theirs on their own but I think you're making a wise choice to seek a loctician to start em'. Oooooh weeee I know you are gonna love em' and I can't wait to see em'!
