Love her locs (and her attitude)

I spotted this lady's lovely locs when I went to visit a client. Her disposition was lovely too! I could not help myself and had to tell her her locs were uber cool and she complimented my twists too. You know how we Napps do! :D

Of course we got talking and I found out her locs are 7 years old. She told me how she went for a job interview when her locs were new: about 2 years old and they "stood up" at that time. Many people close to her said that the employers would not take her seriously with her locs. She made a decision to go for the interview anyway. She had expertise to offer and if the company did not employ her because of her locs, it was their loss. She has been working for the company for 5 years: apparently they took her seriously!

We chatted a few more minutes before I had to leave. One thing I remember is this: she had a big smile on her face throughout our brief chat. I would like to think it was because she was hanging out with me (call me Ms Vain!). Something tells me it was more than that. Her loveliness was from deep within. ;)

Keep it natural (and naturally lovely),
