I haven't had much luck finding blogs from other mixed race people documenting their journey to locdom, so I figured I'd put myself out there for anyone else's benefit. It's also a forum for opinions on what's happening on (and sometimes in) my head. Keep up with my journey- my hair and my life. There will be random musings as well, as things inspire me.
I am on a journey -like you, I'm sure. A personal journey, a spiritual journey. A journey about passions, growth, and living. I don't have a good memory, but I value my experiences. It's very strange when you realize that you are being shaped constantly, but ultimately only remember some of the reasons why you are the person you're becoming. I find that when things resonate within me, writing about them helps me to better develop my opinions about them, and to remember them. Sometimes, it's the simple act of looking back and reminding myself where I've been that is all I need to move forward with confidence. That's why I write. Thank you for joining me.
Remember when I showed you how my hair sheds? Do you think this is the same thing? Usually when that happens, I have wispy little clumps of hair hanging by a strand from the tip of my loc. This is different...
These are thicker, tighter balls, and seem to be hanging on for dear life! Is the ever-so-talked-about budding? Is it finally happening to me?
If you've experienced this, please help me out! Is this budding or shedding? Do I leave them alone?
