hello all! give me a hand????
We do have the introduction forum for everyone's stories, but I guess some stories have been buried.
1: I started my first set with wax and a salon. It was a disaster. My hair melted off my scalp. That's a longer story.
I have always liked how locks looked, but never really say myself with them. Then one day, I started studying Rastafarianism. I also was in the process of quitting smoking weed and doing other drugs. I decided that I wanted to take my vegetarianism and love for the earth further. I wanted to show how in tune I felt with nature by letting my hair grow as it naturally wanted to. I heard a beautiful story about how the longer and thicker your locks were, the easier it would be for Jah to pick up your soul when you die. I don't believe in any of that anymore. I am a self proclaimed Molecular Spiritualist. But I still like the concept. And I still want to allow my hair to be natural.
2: My father believes that I am trying to look black. He doesn't talk about it. but he is a racist bigot. He never minded when I had mohawks and dyed hair. My mother thinks I am too old for them, but thinks that if I want to have them, I should let her pay for me to go to a salon and have them "done" neatly. My aunt and a cousin think that they will make me go bald. And my grandfather thinks I am too old for "funny" hair.
So, luckily strangers love them. It's only my family that has a problem with my hair.
3: Your locks look just fine. That's exactly what they should look like at the stage they are in. Don't worry about it at all. Those loose hairs need to be there. Don't touch them, and don't do anything to the roots. If you want them to be healthy and last a long time, you need to just wash and separate them. Any maintenance you do will weaken them.
4: I believe that there is a trading post in the shops page. You can take pics of your art and post them there
