A Natural Progression

Melanie's journey into locs began a quarter of a century ago, and it all started with a simple desire to embrace her natural beauty. "Oh my gosh, so I think it's been about 25 years ago," Melanie reminisced. 

At that time, it was a natural progression for her. She decided to let her hair be, allowing it to grow out and transition into a more authentic representation of herself. "My hair was natural. I was growing it out. And it's just a natural progression," Melanie explained.

Embracing The Journey

When asked about the difficulties she encountered during the early stages of her locing journey, Melanie's response was unexpectedly serene. "The hardest part? It wasn't necessarily hard for me," she revealed. Melanie's journey seemed to flow effortlessly, and she attributed this to her mindset. 

She acknowledged that some people might find the shorter stages challenging, but for her, it was all part of the journey. "I don't know if it had any particularly hard stages," she mused.

The Beauty of Liberation

The best part of locing, according to Melanie, is the freedom it brings. "Not having to worry about everyday cares. And the beauty of it," she enthused. This liberation from the constant demands of styling and maintenance allows individuals like Melanie to embrace their natural beauty and authenticity fully.

Locs in the Workplace: A Unique Perspective

Melanie's experience in the food industry offered a unique perspective on how locs are perceived in professional settings. While some may face discrimination or bias, Melanie's experience was different. "I worked for a hotel for many years," she shared.

Melanie wore handkerchiefs on her head instead of traditional chef hats, but she never experienced overt discrimination. Perhaps her unwavering confidence and resilience played a significant role in deflecting any potential biases. "I didn't experience that outwardly anyway," Melanie noted.
