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. It took 2 years but my wonderful heart doctors were able to get me back into sinus rhythm. My body finally started to heal.
That’s when my hair started to grow and become thicker. I felt it was the right time to begin my loc journey again. Right now I’m in the “teenage” stage where my locks have a mind of their own. I love it! My hair texture has become softer since my last set of locks. Now my random gray hairs wave proudly in the breeze after they find a way to become uncoiled.
