i am loving my journey, but yesterday i must admit i was feeling like i was having a BAD hair day. I think i was just having a case of being impatient!!!! i WANT locs NOW!!!.
Its only a month, so not much progress my hair just looks a mess, when i looked in the mirror yesterday, i felt even uglier than usual, i know this is all the stages of having locs and i am going to stick with it, but the hair on my head doesnt look nice at the moment, even hair bands/scarves do not improve "the look".
I am not really fashion concious but i guess i didnt really know how much my hair effects my day... As i am semi free forming i guess my hair looks untidier than normal, so its something i just have to get used too, and others around me, i know my sister who has dead straight natural hair doesnt get it, or her best friend with long relaxed groomed hair and the mums at my son's school, i have noticed the stares...its not their fault really, they have NEVER seen anyone grow locks, so i think they think im just going through a rough patch or something, so i guess im just finding it a bit hard going through this process alone, no one seems to get that my hair is supposed to look like this for now, it will look different in a year or so time(hopefully) but with 11 months to go before a year is out, i wander if i am going to crack?????
i dont think so but its definately going to be a bumpy ride.
