Check out my piece on AfroPunk— my lock confessional.
I regret using the word dread actually— because as someone pointed out— there is nothing dreadful about having locks— so yeah— the terms locks is more accurate!
The cover photo in the article is of Yagazie Emezi (© Mambu Bayoh ) - one of my natural hair inspirations— I believe she has either yarn braids or a Senegalese twist style in the photograph.
Excited to try out new style in the next months— I think I may go for the yarn braids next *excited face*
P.S.- please take at look at Mambu Bayoh’s work, http://www.mambubayoh.com/, really captures the essence of what I feel is natural beauty— the essence of culture— aesthetic!
