Personally, I’ve been trying to focus less on my “problem areas” and really embrace the journey. Despite having loose hairs that have completely escaped locs, some locs with roots that look like it’s been months since they’ve been maintained, and mini afros on my edges (front & back), I have refrained from retwisting—and it’s been hard! Really hard. Which is why I sincerely appreciate the support and encouragement from ya’ll on tough days (our impromptu Periscope chats are the best!) And the tip for headbands has literally been curbing my self-doubt!
