Ready to re-twist?
Anyway, back to my emotional rollercoaster. I've been seriously thinking about combing my locs out. I definitely don't want to cut them because my hair has never been this long in my life. My husband is behind whatever decision I make but I know if I do decide to it, it probably won't be until next summer. I want to comb them out because I wanna see what my texture is like. I never got a chance to play with my loose naps before I locked because I locked about 2 weeks after my big chop. And during that 2 week period my hair was in comb coils, which is how I eventually started my locs. I've been on youtube and nappturality.com and I've seen/read numerous stories of people starting their locks over. My best friend has put me on youtube time out because I spend so much time there. LOL! It NEVER occurred to me to start over or have more than one set of locs (even though my son did it; he's now working on his 2nd set). I always thought I would have this set of locs FOREVER! But another part of me wants to see how long my hair will grow. It's actually been a little bit longer than this (about 4 inches) but I've cut them shorter twice. I regret doing that now. My hair would be mid back or longer by now. I don't know if I really want my hair that long but now that I know how to style it, it may not be an issue. I'm not really sure what journey I want to be on right now so I'm just gonna leave my hair alone for now.
Have you been on a rollercoaster about your hair? If so, what did you do?
