I've been wanting them forever. Not all over....just 3-5 locs that pop out. These locs will probably be covered by other locs. I still want to go to work, church and social functions without people going,
"OMG, she's got purple locs!!!!! Does she smoke meth with her rocker boyfriend? Oh wait...is she a lesbian goth? Does she know she can't have a professional job with purple locs? OMG!!!!!"
And I ain't hardly exaggerating. Y'all know people think crazy things about a) people with locs and b) Black people with crazy hair color. Not that I care but I don't want to have to pop off on anyone and end up in jail. HA!!
Anywhoovers....I kinda want to do this after I go to my loctician next week. I just know she'll discourage me from doing it. She'll scare me with horror stories. Wait....how do you even bleach hair? I'm soooo afraid to do that. Never mind that I was using developer like I took a cosmetology class on hair color. Technically, I shouldn't even be afraid.
But still....I don't want to be running on the treadmill one day and one of my locs go sliding. Wouldn't that be hilariously awful? So yeah. I gotta call my professional hair friend and see if this is even possible.
I blame Chescaleigh. I was finally over the hair color obsession and then she had to go and post this.
Granted she posted it several moons ago but still. I blame her for being so fabulous and awesome and making me not feel out of place for wanted purple locs. And did she really have to respond to my tweet with suggestions? I hope I don't find any "How to bleach your locs" tutorials on YouTube. Because if I do....
I don't know', y'all...I'm kinda hoping this idea goes away. Or maybe I should just do one loc. Or the tips of one loc. What's the worst that could happen?
Dun dun duuuuun!!
