- These locs are not perfect. I mean I don't want them to be perfect perfect but I do want them to be a certain way and right now they do not live up to expectations. I feel like these are more of a test run set. Hopefully I will learn alot with these so my next set, whenever that will be, will be healthier, I will be more knowledgeable on what works on my hair and they will be more aesthetically pleasing to me. I know, it's early days yet with this set but that is how I feel. Maybe I will want them bigger, or smaller. In all, this set is the set to teach, the next set will be to implement what I've learnt with this set.
- I plan on going into politics in Ghana at some point. I'm young and have plenty of time to change my mind but right now, that is what I want to do. Heck I want to be the first female president (I've worked it out, it will be circa 2044 if everything goes according to plan) Ghana is progressing, slowly though and for this reason I don't plan on running with locs. The country can handle a natural president but I don't think they can handle a locked one. I honestly feel that is asking too much LOL.
- I was only a loose natural for two weeks. I see so many pictures of BEAUTIFUL loose afro hairstyles and really want to rock them at some point. Seriously. I want to be that cool mum with big hair that is on POINT haha. I imagine taking my kids to school and having the pupils stare at me in the car park in awe. Yeah, I'm vain. Shoot me :P
So, yeah. Only three reasons but I feel very strongly about them. Hence, these locs will not be permanent. I may change my mind in the future. If I do, I will let you know. Should I decide to take them down, I'm not sure how I would do it. For some reason I want to shave my head to see what I would look like with a low cut. At the same time taking them down seems like an interesting concept; I wonder how much length I would retain, what state my hair would be in. I've seen pictures of some people's hair after a take down and it looked so ratty, I felt they should have just cut them off. THEN AGAIN lol transitioning would be a really cool idea. I mean, I also want to try out that look where the locs are only at the back. Think of the styling options that would give!! *sigh* Listen to me. The locs aren't even mature yet and I'm already thinking about how to take them down. Shame on me.
