Hi everyone! I've been thinking about getting locks and even have someone scheduled to come over this week to start the process but am now getting a little anxious about getting locks. I'm hoping some of you may have some thoughts for me about this whole thing...
Here are some of my concerns:
what if they really turn out looking horrible...in other words, what if he actual locks themselves look bad...not sure anyone can help with this, it's just my fear!
how much maintenance is involved in the first 6 months, until they hopefully lock up? do I have to sleep with something on my head at night? how messy will it look? I do realize that my hair will not lock up until months later but just wonder about the process itself and how much maintenance is involved.
How will sweat (I'm trying run for excerize) and being on the beach (sand) effect my hair? Anyone have these experiences?
Sorry for all the questions but I am starting to get some doubts about doing this. When I look at other locs, I love how they look and I would love to have them but I guess, I'm just getting nervous
The other worry I have is, my 3 yo dd is not very happy about my decision to get this done. She doesn't know what dreads are (she didn't want to see pictures of them) so I think she has this image of me changing so drastically. I've tried to talk to her about it but she doesn't really want to talk about it. I feel bad b/c I think she really doesn't want me to get these done and I worry about how she will respond to my new hair.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
