Will freeform locs style your way?

You’re curious about choosing the freeform loc method for your hair, but the thought of your not styling the way you expect or plan is holding you back. What do you do then?

I started my journey 17months ago with shoulder length hair. According to this pic, my hair is still at shoulder length, but to be honest, my hair experienced shrinkage during the loc process and shrunk up to my ears.

So, if you can imagine an additional 5″ from where you see my hair now, that’s the closest approximate to my true hair length to date.

 

When I decided to start my freeform journey, I had no clue what I was doing.  Not to mention my hair.  Aside from it’s appearance and challenging  of my self confidence, I wasn’t really concerned about the head as a whole, only the front of my crown was where I paid most attention.  

The front of my hair took over 8 months to take an appearance of some kind.  It was nothing like what I expected.  After seeing all the amazing and beautiful style options of those that went the “manipulated” styling route and seeing how defined their locs fell, I was tempted to make some efforts of my own to make my hair take on a particular type of  appearance.

I was reminded, by Spirit and purpose, that this journey wasn’t about my SELF, it was about my faith and belief to see what MY SELF, can do on it’s own if I just left it alone.

Here I am today, as a mature, unmanipulated loc woman. To present and exhibit to others, what your hair can do on it’s own when you leave it alone, but cleaned!!

So let’s start by eradicating the elephant in the room. Where have I been, why no updates to the blog?? Trust me, there is a story and a reason behind it all, but for today, we’re going to get into me and this loc journey I’m empowering on HIGH!

Grab yourself and drink and sit back and enjoy the video. Leave me a comment on what you think and I’ll take it from there. Bless always.

However, before you prosper upon those great rewards, you will have to endure the stages and experiences both good and bad that come with living a lifestyle as a freeform dread.  As the book of life quotes in scripture, “many are called, few are chosen”.  The same goes with un-manipulated freeform dreadlock journeys.  Your hair isn’t receiving monthly, bi-annual hair treatments, or re-twists. A constant question mark ? will haunt your crown that will leave others questioning “why don’t you re-twist your roots?”.  Working through and excepting this stage takes some time  (A year into my own journey and I’m still feeling it).


Today, the dreadlock community is wide and grand.  Support for others is great and kind,especially on social media.  Knowing for sure, this particular type of loc journey is for you is most important.

Checking short locs for odor

Let’s be honest, dreadlocks especially FREEFORM are given a really bad wrap based soley on their appearance. It’s not fair to those of us that want to maintain a healthy maintenance schedule for them.

I started my journey a year ago now, and because my journey is “un-manipulated” I have to discover my own ways to keep them together, happy and healthy.

You know the dress is going nowhere, right?

Aside from long hair and high heels, the dress is number one form of identity for the female.

So you’re here to see what I have to say about the dress and why it’s not going anywhere, right?

I’m going to get straight to the hardcore facts. Some of you may disagree, only because you’re opting not to accept TRUTH about this society and world we live in.

What is “this” world I’m speaking of? Well, from biblical times, it is written that the world was created for man to be fruitful and multiply. Make plenty of the land and multiply yourself with the woman. Man took  those words and applied his own spin  to doing so. How? with SEX.  SEX runs the world. Many would say “Girls run the world”, in a way we do. Just about everything of this world is created from a cosmetic concept, which is what  the woman responds  to.  If it’s not “pretty” we don’t see it.

The man was built to chop and carry tree bark, make boats, fix cars. That’s what their strengths are for, but in their weakness, the man  likes to lift “light” things, like skirts, dresses, bed sheets, her  hair, her legs . Those things will never change. He likes the dress, it turns him on. The wonder of what’s underneath it, will stimulate him forever. (I like the wording on this sentence.) Anyway It’s true!!

Want another truth?  The dress or skirt is the most hygiene friendly form of clothing for the woman.  It allows air to pass through her “beneaths”  and ventilate her “goodies” naturally. It’s my personal preference for this reason.  Plus I think they’re beautifully feminine when clothed upon our bodies. The dress compliments who we are, ladies.  It doesn’t matter if the sun is shining or rain is pouring.  We are beautiful.  Enjoy your summer, girls!

Bless!

The “shut up about beauty” woman

Who doesn’t like to receive a compliment once in a while? After all a compliment is a form of praise you’re doing good for yourself and society.

Where I get lost, is how does a woman who receives a compliment go from a smile and a humble thank you, to thinking she’s the best thing next to sliced bread?

I believe the mindset of the one who thinks she’s everyone’s T-bone steak is a prisoner to worshipping  “beauty & the beast”.

As a freeformed loc’d woman, with a HER manifest. Our beauty is measured through actions. Don’t be mistaken we wear cosmetics also, but the essence of beauty comes from within us. Not from face value.

Your discussions with a freeform loc’d woman with HERLOXX manifested within, explor and seek edification in everything she does. When I say everything, I mean everything.

As a wife, she views her husband as HER King, and her children as the perfect creation of her love with her husband.

As a woman, what’s best for HER health, is her main focus. Being a healthy, supportive spouse HER focal point daily. Exercise, keeping those joints soft and pain free.  You can’t tell me this type of woman doesn’t sound “perfect” in human form, already.  Let’s continue.



HER friends, are true. They carry HER values, beliefs and honor them in their own lives and relationships. There’s no competing for the best dressed, sexiest or visually attractive.

Helping, teaching, advising is where HER beauty resides. There are no discussions on how they look. Whether they’re considered beautiful beings from a strange eye. The compliment is received and the work continues.

In a HER manifest, I use animals as a analogy for understanding. Especially for the women to gather and understand HER self.

The pigeon and the eagle/hawk, are both birds but very different. One settles on the ground and flocks with each other in groups of many. They eat anything you throw at them and keep going.

The eagle/hawk however, doesn’t flock in groups and forget about seeing them hovering on the ground. They’re elevated high on a mountain or in a tree. You have to literally hike to hunt them down. They eat fresh food only.

Women from a HER manifestion, live a life like the eagle/hawk. It takes just as much work from within to live that lifestyle. It’s not easy, but its achievable.

Just like the book of life I quote, “Many are called, few are chosen”.

Just me and my blog

Today, I’m excited and I think finally put together with this whole blog journey I’m on.

I consider some of us are chosen to explore our unique paths. No matter how many attempts we make to jump on the train and jump off again due to confusion and poor judgement call, we can’t turn our backs entirely on them.

For me, this blog was one of them. I think I mentioned in my first post, this was my third attempt at this.

I’ve watched many videos about blogging and how and why so many fail. Why do I continue to watch and listen to this guidance? Why can’t I just drop it and keep looking for the next best thing? The reason I believe, this is my thing. Now, tomorrow and on-going I have to do this.

The craziest thing is, I’m loving it. It’s new, immature like a child, but it’s my baby. I love it. I love my blog. Folks out there, love their cars, some love trees and their pets. I love my blog. I hope you come to enjoy visiting it too.

I just had to say that here, as a mini testimonial. Now back to business.

How does something so cold, make you so hot?

I’m not sure if its the sexual stigma connected to the ice cream why its not a preference for me on hot days.

As a woman in tune with social media and her own personal sexual etiquette, the ice cream cone topped with the multiple colored scoops of ice cream  gives me a sense of awkwardness in public.

As a freeform dreadlock woman, some of us carry ourselves to a certain standard of living. To be sexy or enticing outside of my home, doesn’t work for me. Not because I don’t know how to be sexy in public. Trust me, that isn’t the problem.

How I love my husband is personal. What I do with the things I use to share my affection with him is personal and he respects and appreciates that about me. So for me, whether I’m alone or walking past an ice cream vendor, most times I opt out of getting myself an ice cream.

I never understood, how does something so  cold, melts and drips, then gets sticky when dried become so sexy and hot, especially with a woman?  Even describing it, like that, sounds erotic.

I believe in truth, the woman was created in beauty for man from the beginning. Anything she does, he will see as beautiful. Even licking the ice cream from a cone that’s dripping with  melted cream.



In short, ladies we need to understand our strength and magical powers over the man and not try so hard to get their attention with false beauty tactics. You’re a natural beauty in their eyes from Day 1.

Stay blessed.
