  1. the bold color thing is interesting. of course i want to dye mine but I’m afraid the bold color gives off the impression that I am not concerned with being taken seriously.

  2. I’m thinking about trying color, but after having an experience with color (when I was relaxed), I’ve sworn off it, so for this year, it’s about health: beautiful, healthy locs that don’t look dusty (and when mine get dry, they look it). My sister even started her locs back in March, after 3 years of being natural/relaxer free!
