This isn’t a new topic for America, only a new area of focus. Remember in 2015, when men and women in the armed forces, specifically the Marine Corps, were granted “authorization” to have locs if they keep them “neat and presentable”?!

Many people will argue that wearing a wig is a styling option for women that like to “change their hair often”; yet never acknowledge the psychological implications of covering your own natural hair with a wig.
Whether you’ve had locs for years or you’re just beginning your journey, learning from the experiences of others will help you avoid common struggles. I reached out to several Vloggers with gorgeous locs to find out the #1 lesson that they learned but wish they knew in the beginning of their loc journey.
