Dear Writing Addict,
Hi my name is Rika and I would very much like to start locks. I am 16 years old and though some of the most important people in my life seem to be against it, I have decided that locking is something I want to do. I have considered them for almost a year and now I want to just go for it. But what I would just like to know is how do I decide what size locks I would like to have, what do I need to consider when deciding, and how do I explain it to the loctician once the decision is made?
Congratulations on your decision to become a young loc'd lady! You are trying to flex your independence muscles by choosing your own hairstyle however, some family members might be concerned for you. What I mean is, it may not be about the hairstyle in particular it might be one of the following:
- They might not know the vast array of loc hairstyles you can choose from
- They might not be knowledgeable about locs
- They may fear how others might treat you
Now, you need to choose how you will wear your hair. Take into consideration the type of profession you want when you grow up. Think about the types of hairstyles you would like to rock with locs, the amount of time you want to upkeep them, etc. You have to look through tons of pics online and possible print off the picture of the person's locs you admire the most (if you want to get that size). Remember, everyone's locs are different, and all locs do not grow the same way, in the same size. Also note, that locs tend to thicken up over time!
Here are a few size options:
Traditional Xtra large
I hope this helps honey! Good luck and let me know how it all turns out!
Stay Blessed & Happy Locing!
