  • You don’t know

    I kind of get upset when people yell/tell people they can not blame their childhood for problems they may have - just shut up and take responsibility and get over it.

    Now I wonder does that same person yell/tell people you can not give credit  their childhood for problems they may have - just shut up and take responsibility and get over it.

    IF YOU ARE GOING TO TAKE THE CREDIT BE READY TO TAKE SOME BLAME TOO. Just saying

  • "BE FORTUNATE MIRRORS DON’T LIE AND DON’T LAUGH"
  • Thank you so much for sharing your beginner dreadlock story with us Khadija. Many people are afraid to begin their loc journey. As your submission will show, it is more than just the beginning of a new hairstyle, it is the beginning of self discovery.

    To see how the submission will appear in the Don’t Dread Dreads: The People Speak Project go to http://dreadlockpicturesneededforbook.blogspot.com/

    My name is Khadija, and I’m from South Carolina. I am one month in on my loc journey. I’m twenty years old, and for years I’ve wanted dreads. Being a biracial women I’ve always dealt with negativity  from others when it came to my thick natural hair. A year and a half ago i finally gave up chemical relaxers, and went natural. Starting my dreads is the the best choice I’ve made when it comes to my hair. Everyday my locs lay a different way which is teaching me to be happy with what i have. Before starting my locs i would hear people complain about the “ugly phase”, or how they hated their young locs being fuzzy. Now that im going through my journey i can honestly say i love all these phases others complain about. I like when a dread sticks up, or is extra fuzzy some days. I have shrinkage galore, fuzzy stray hairs everywhere, and untame locs sticking up. Watching my babies grow is helping me accept myself, and to not care what others think. I started my locs myself. I retwist about once a month minimum, but when i do i’m the one to do it. I treat my locs like plants. I started them, and i will care for them continuously. 

  • Happy and thankful the queen submitted her photo for my book project. Just beautiful. There is something special in the eyes of people who wear locs.

  • I wear locs because my people wore them before me. When I began to see success in my life that also brought some of the most difficult times. I honor my people with growth and continued progress.
