When I started my locs, the last thing on my mind was how long my hair would get. I was happy when it was long enough to finally put in a ponytail, but starting locs just to have long hair was not my thing at all. But apparently there are folks out here starting locs just to fulfill their life long dream of having long hair like a white girl.
Look, it’s not my place to tell anyone why they should start their locs, BUT dang y’all, Don’t let “long hair like a white girl” be your move. If you want long hair for fake reasons, then just sew or glue a weave in your head and leave locs to those of us who actually appreciate OUR ancestry.
And for the record, locs that are too long can cause spinal and muscle issues. When ever my locs start to feel too heavy I pull the scissors out quick. I’m not sacrificing the health of my neck trying to be cute and you shouldn’t either.
