I think all locs wearers know this feeling all too well. Waiting for your hair to finally loc and grow in length. Watching the slow but exciting process of your hair naturally forming into its own thing. Patience to get through the "awkward" phase to celebrate in the "awesome" phase.
Not surprisingly this patience transcends into every part of your life if you allow it. Loc/natural hair journeys can change you life in the best ways and it's all by just accepting your hair for what it is, a beautiful mass of temperamental awesomeness.
