100 Nappy Hair Stories

100 Nappy Hair Stories is a photographic collage and compilation of 'hair stories'. The women and men participating in this project graciously share their beauty, style and self-expression via images and in the narrative of their own personal 'Hair Stories'.

#1 - Seleta's Story

 

This is my second set of locs. I cut off the first set because I thought I had "good hair" but that changed after the first wash. It balled up like a sheep that hadn't had its wool cut in years.
 
I tried getting it braided for a while, then one day I decided that I couldn't do it any more and wanted my locs back. I had my daughter's friend start them. I took that set out because I didn't want to go through the stage where they(the locs) do what they want to.
 
Then I found the lady with the magic touch Akilah Hatchett-Hall who has been doing my second set for less than year and I'm loving it! I know this time I won't be cutting my locs off because they are for me.
