Three years ago–40 months to be more exact–I made the decision to cut off more than a decade’s worth of locs to continue a loose natural hair journey that I had begun back in 1993. I BCed or again to be more accurate, if you have locs, it’s called a Loc Chop. And once the deed was done, I had an “Oh crap?!” moment. Actually it’s fair to say that it’s been more than a moment since all of these months later, I still wonder was cutting off all of my hair the right decision for me at that time?
