I began my journey with rocs locs ( named after my loctician's sister) by a master loctician in Raleigh. I decided to keep my permed ends because I did not want to go through the "ugly" stage. The more I had to maintain those two different textures of hair the more I wanted those permed ends off. I decided to cut off my permed ends at my 4 week relatching. I have discovered that there is no ugly stage in locking. I am in love with my hair and my journey. Feel free to browse my album and leave comments.
