Why did you loc your hair?

Many people comment on my locs and ask why do I style my hair this way.  Although they say dreadlocs or dreadlocks,  ‘dred’ is a shorten form of dreadful and those of us who style our hair this way understand this terminology and original thought behind this choose not to call our hair style dreadful, instead we say locs.   About 10 years ago, I wanted to wear my hair in its natural state and remove the chemicals from my hair.  This all went along with my seeking to be healthier.  A few years later, I found out that wearing my hair loc’d have spiritual connotations and benefits.  In my post ‘Raw living whole foods’, you may remember me mentioning that I separated myself to Yah.  One of the ways to separate one’s self to Yah is by loc’ing your hair which is included in the Nazarite vow found in the Bible book of Numbers 6:1-9.  Wearing locs provide a unique look that can convey so many different, positive messages all at once: style, cultural heritage, spiritual awareness and/or Yah’some Living.
