Over the summer I *ahem* chopped off my locs. I'm almost certain I let the cat out the bag a while back when I twit pic'ed a picture, but I was trying to hold off the big announcement until the video production was finished. It was so hard not to post more recent pictures in the the public arena because I so wanted to share my new look. In the end, I'm glad I waited until the video was finished, it turned out really well.
Some folks didn't understand why I did this big loc chop, but for the most part, many folks were supportive of my decision. My BFF was very supportive, he filmed, edited and co-produced the entire project. Both the hair cut and the video turned out very nice and I'm quite pleased with both.
For those who didn't know, I'd been growing my locs for a little over two years and six months. I had a love/hate relationship with my locs and the energies I felt were trapped inside of them. Because of that constant inner conflict, I finally decided to just chop them off. Take a look and let me know what you think...
In the four months since my big loc chop I find myself missing my locs at times. It isn't an overwhelming feeling of loss, just a slight feeling of nostalgia, lol. I'm enjoying having my head full of soft swirly curls back though and wouldn't change a thing. Have any of you made major personal changes recently? How did you feel afterward? Let a sistah know!
