Locs We Love: 23 Women Share Why They Started Their Loc Journey

I started my Loc journey before Christmas. This will be the 6th-ish time that I’ve had locs. I actually thought I wouldn’t be able to have them again. So, this journey is my new beginning. Last year my hair was thinning due to bad health. I was diagnosed with atrial fibrillation three years ago. I had an erratic heart rate that would not respond to my first two (or maybe 3) ablations.
