We all know that growing locs can cause some anxiety. Often, we compare our locs to family members, friends and sometimes the internet. For some reason we expect the same or a similar outcome. I can guarantee you the stages you will endure but I can’t guarantee the timing of these stages.
Some of us are starting to see a few strands of grey hair here and there and the panic sits in easily. Let’s start with a little back story about grey hair. Grey hair is a hair strand that no longer produces pigment. The hair strand becomes coarse and in some cases, unruly. They can be difficult to color and simply a pain in the neck.
This is a very interesting topic for me. So here is the deal. “Baby hair” styling has been around since the 1920’s. Josephine Baker as a flapper girl made this famous. Although, I did read that women were styling their hair like that in Spain and Portugal back in the day. I don’t know much about that so do your own research.
