Dear Loc'd Ladies, This brotha says...loc on!

Yes, I'm using this picture again. I featured it back on this post and it was recently blogged on LocLuv. I LOVE this picture. I'm also loving the email I got from Andrew. Check this out, y'all...

Hey there B,

I'm a guy and I follow your blog...when I can. Its so refreshing to see women who have embraced their natural beauty. The same way you are attracted to men with locs, I'm attracted to natural haired ladies. I think of relaxers as lethal injection for hair, and I believe any chemical that doesn't nourish hair should be banned. That's just me to each his/her own.

Anywho, I'm beginning my first set of locs pretty soon (been growing my hair out for the past 15 months, well more like 7...long story) and I've decided that for the next 3 months or so I'll tame the fro with some manageable braids. I've had them in now for about 2 weeks, and I have to say I'm lovin it. The attention I get from the ladies in the office is nice.

Just wanted to share this with you because I'd been a bit wishy washy about the idea of locing up, that is until I stumbled across your blog. You helped to reaffirm everything I'd been thinking. For me its more than just a hairstyle its our culture and those that disagree I think need a black history/African culture lesson. Anyway I'm running on now. Just wanted to say I appreciate your blog and to tell you keep it up sista and that you have males that read too lol. You energy is warm and positive and its a wonderful vibe.

I love when the guys show love. Thank you, Andrew! While us ladies can compliment each other on our crowns all day, it always feels good when a brotha can show us some love to. We thank you!!! Ladies, if your man, brother, nephew, son or friend are dealing with the decision to loc, let them know that they aren't alone.

Maybe Andrew's post will spearhead more contributing posts and pictures from the fellas. Hmmm, what do y'all think?
