What and/or who inspired you to express your natural hair?

Essentially, I was forced into it. I guess some of us have to go that route sometimes in order to make a change. In 2002, I found a small dime-sized patch on the top of my head which was later diagnosed as alopecia. All chemicals were removed about a year later (still reluctant as you can see). I then started with the 2-strand twist for about 8 years but about a year ago, grew bored and wanted a change. (You may not be able to tell by the profile pic but I can revert to my natural hair, in a couple of hours). LOL! :) My absolute desire is to loc my hair by the end of this year and FINALLY do what I've been wanting to do for years. I look forward to meeting everyone and attending one of your meet-ups soon.

Introduction

Hi Everyone! I'm currently desiring to do locs (despite public opinion). I welcome the opportunity of meeting others that are taking or will be taking the loc journey. I would also like to learn more about natural hair and products that are best.
