Two Years and Two Months Rainy Day Check-in
Well, it's official - I'm at two years and two months Loc-versary. Today almost slipped by without a mobile phone snapshot. So here I am - I think that I have finally arrived at the phase of nothing but gaining length going down versus branching out. I have a lot more confidence with my locs at all times now. So with that confidence, I have been able to focus on other cosmetic makeup options.
You may be wondering what does lip color have to do with my hair? What does cosmetic makeup have to do with hair? Well, I am happy that you asked. For most of my life, my hair has consumed so much of my time that I did NOT any energy left to experiment with cosmetic application. Also, if you don't have "slamming hair" then it throws off your whole fashion image.
So you can have "drag queen gorgeous" makeup application and your hair is a hot mess, then you still look overall like a "hot mess" despite the extra care that you put in your makeup and clothes. So the shackles are loosed, and I finally feel like I am free. I feel more comfortable in allowing other beauty professionals to offer makeup and fashion tips that actually work for me. Before I felt that tips offered were not becoming to me.
People judge you by many things - car, shoes, watch, purse, clothes, skin, nails, and hair. However, you can be a runaway slave with gorgeous hair - someone will finish shining you up. It is weird to feel that locs equal gorgeous hair, but in my world, my locs have started to put an extra pep in my step. That makes them gorgeous in their own right. From the wind lightly blowing them to the shake they make as I slightly tilt my head. I am loving them phenomenally. Phenomenal hair.
