Let's be honest, many people view dreadlocks as "dreadful". I sincerely hope that change is on the horizon. Niyya Tenee, the founder of Locs Revolution, is on a mission to uplift the image of locked hair and as part of that mission she is promoting Loc Appreciation Day on June 28, 2014.
"When I was dissatisfied with myself in any capacity, I would take it out on my hair because it was the easiest target."
"Let's just pretend I'm going for the 'fiery redhead' thing and call it a day."
"I was constantly in pursuit of silky, shiny, blows-in-the-wind, 'white girl' hair."
I had been going to the same salon for 10 years and needed a change, so I made an appointment with the curly hair expert.
The very idea of suppressing the beautiful, intrinsic locks is now a ritual of the past. Today, the trend is to acclimate with the so-called "worrisome curls."
