"The South "is" Changing"

Pictured here with my Loc'd Up Starbuck buddies. I met Karen this morning and Ron and I probably overwhelmed her with questions about her locks, but we could not resist...they are so AWESOME.

Ron has been on his loc journey now for about a year and his are coming along well.

Karen is originally from Washington D.C and has had her locks for 17 years. After receiving raving compliments from us she shared a story that when she first moved to Dallas many people avoided her because of her locs thinking she was some kind of rebellious sista. Today and 12 years later she gets asked questions about her locks quite frequently and many. many compliments on her glorious mane..

Yeah for us below the Mason-Dixon line!!

Seriously, the South has been on a more steady and progressive pace. This eminent and powerful natural movement is worldwide, leaving those simple minded individuals in opposition to it lamenting in the dust. We are a strong force!!

Wait, I'm confused...there are so many of you locked ladies in Dallas! OR, do you just band together since locks are so rare? ;)

Oh yeah, seems like we are drawn to each other and then it's like we've known each other for years. Funny how natural hair can bring people together huh!

Nice pic. I need some natural friends to hang out with. But my natural e-friends are just as good. That is a good thing that the South is changing.
