I confess. . . I’ve been holding out on you. For the last six months, I have been working on my natural hair, but not sharing my progress. Primarily, I have been dealing with my health and trying to stay well and fit. In addition, I ran into issues with my hair, and it was falling out pretty badly. If I touched my hair even a little, I would end up with hair in my hands. This was not good. A year ago, I was under tremendous stress and my health and wellbeing were under attack. I was not well, lost a lot of weight, and it also resulted in the hair loss.
I am happy to say that life has changed for the better! I am happier, stress free, and continuing to work on staying healthy and fit. In the meantime, I decided my hair needed a break from any type of manipulation, so I made the transition into locs. It’s what I’ve always wanted, but wasn’t quite sure I was ready to do especially working in the corporate arena. Now, I am in business for myself and that is no longer an issue. I can be ME!
I am proud to report that the four-month transition is going well, and you are the first to see (besides my family, of course)! NO MORE HAIR LOSS either, and it’s growing fast! I admit that I have not gone out of the house with my locs exposed yet, as I am waiting for more growth and the ability to create different styles and updos.
