This refers to a period when a naturalistas hair is at a stage of growth that doesn’t easily style or and in some cases is similar to a traditional men’s haircut
Some people choose to dress this style up with makeup and accessories until they come into a lush and glorious fro.
I have no issue with those who do this as i can recall the awkward phase of growing my dreadlocks.
I’m simply of the belief that it should all be celebrated; the Big Chop, the awkward phase, the glorious fro, the unmanageable curls and perhaps the long flowing locs.
Hence the hashtag #LoveYourLength
In producing the promotional images for this post one of the models; namely Francine Russell pointed out its deeper meaning.
Loving your length is about celebrating your now in life; appreciating what you have while continuing to strive for a far off goal.
Until then enjoy these images and #loveyourlength
