For those who have been dreaming of locking your natural hair but keep postponing that wish, this is your sign.
Several reasons and stories have deterred women from locking their natural. Back in the day, wearing a dreadlocks was a major reason someone could be denied a job opportunity but now, men and women who wear dreadlocks with pride have broken the stereotype, especially in the corporate world.
