Reader Email

Hey my loc'd divas....I promise you are just like a sweet lover you know just what to say and when to say it. Needless to say, I have been busy as a bee lately with the debut of my novel High Stakes. I haven't been able to do much posting on here. Its hard to keep this up with all the craziness in my life. Just when I start thinking about giving something up, such as this blog (lets face it, I don't get much feedback on here). So, look at the email I received this morning. Right on time....simply beautiful. Thank you Doreen...

I just wanted to write to tell you I've been following your blog for
probably a year now. For some reason or another, I've wanted to lock
my hair for the past year, but had something stopping me (I was in
China and there was no one to do it, now I'm unemployed and have no
money). However, I was still getting my hair done (I live in Ghana, so
it's really, really cheap) and figured out that getting my hair done 3
or 4 times was equivalent to paying a cheap salon to do it, so I did
it on Monday and I am soooo happy. I feel free. No more going through
the tedium of braiding, washing, unbraiding. UGHHH. And the pressure
I've been receiving to straighten it (even in AFRICA, people hate
natural hair)...I intend to have my hair like this forever and your
blog is a large part of why. So thank you so much for doing what you
do. You're an inspiration to people like me who want to reject white
supremacist beauty ideals and be true to ourselves.


Doreen....thank you again, keep your head up, revel in your Queendom and never let anyone make you feel less than the Queen you are!

Stay Blessed & Happy Locing!

Thanks Shani, I am sticking with it. I have to remind myself that just the mere existence of OTRTQ is helping one sistah out there who is on the fence about locing.....
