I just finished my hair and I decided to share with you all my special ritual. Hairs are like antennas picking up information and programming from the environment. For this reason, I do my own hair. You know how it feels when someone has taken pride in doing your hair or when it is just routine. In fact, the only hairdressers I trusted with my hair were men who had daughters with similiar hair to mine. I truly felt the love when they did my hair. When I was ready for locs, I was also ready to commit to having a deeper relationship with myself. Yeah, I can get deep about anything... "wholistic" is a better term. When I groom my locs I play love songs from a playlist I created just for that purpose. I like to make sure that as I am touching and handling my hair, it is being programmed with love. I noticed a huge difference in my life after I did that.
Today I switched it up and talked to my friend as I did it. We had a positive and empowering conversation together. I even said my favorite womanhood affirming mantra and almost knocked myself out with joy.
So next time you are grooming your hair, be conscious of what you are watching, listening to, and speaking about. You are programming your hair and yourself with all of it. Make your grooming time special and powerful!
