Commitment is a big deal to most. Marriage, staying at the same job, finishing a marathon; all require determination and commitment. My hair has been a pledge for the past decade and September will mark 11 years of exploring my roots. I’ve colored, curled, styled but never cut my locs. Strangers have molested it, people have adored it, questions have been posed regarding how, if it’s possible…., if it’s mine. Yes this is all my hair, from my scalp and not purchased. As I think to what the future holds, I can’t help but to consider what the grown up me will look like in another 30 years. Gorgeous grey locs? Don’t mind if I do.
