Embracing my Kinky Hair

Monday, August 24, 2015
I recently decided to comb out my locs, and was able to complete the process within a three week period. 

I absolutely loved my locs!!  And will miss them.  But they were starting to get very thin at the roots and my hair was breaking off.  I tried just about every thing I could do to repair the thinned out roots, but nothing worked.

So I had to make choice to let go of my locs and transition back to my kinky curly hair. I've had my locs for a decade, so I now have to get use to a whole new texture of hair all over again. 

After removing my locs and washing my hair, I saw what a great texture my hair was. So I am excited about being able to try new styles.  One thing I did notice was that my hair has major shrinkage.  So I may try to experiment with stretching my hair without heat.  The style in the photos with my short hair is a twist out.  If you want to know more about combing out locs, check out these videos on youtube.

I will say that I have always loved locs.  Although I was not able to keep them for life as I had hope, I will continue to share and promote the beauty of locs and all natural hair styles & hair types.
