4. "I feel like the hair cutting thing" In response to Reply # 3
is an old wives tale. I'm sure some folks are actually going through stuff and feel like changing the hair is part of it. but what about all those folks that don't cut their hair and are dealing with life?
it goes back to why I grew my locs. it wasn't for style...fashion; yet, the realm I was in. life was different for me back then. It was like, my period of enlightenment lol. After about 10 yrs and significant changes in my life, I cut them shorter. Let it grow again...cut it shorter again. I didn't grow it again just kept the same style for 7 more years. Then I "picked" them out.
so yeah. To answer your question. I don't believe I can go in a new direction when I'm holding on to the same hair. That hair held burdens. Its becoming for evident to me that I'm no longer the same woman.
