Mermaid Hair, Don’t Care

My hair is so long now, I can’t even fit it into a head shot anymore. Seems wild that it’s been 20 years since I started growing them. 16 years as a blonde Ras. Currently my locs are past my ass. When I throw my head back, the ends tickle the tops of my thighs. It’s sooooo much hair allyuh, it takes a quarter of a bottle of shampoo a pop to get the job done. My parents thought I was going to be bald forever… and when I did start growing hair, it stayed short and picky for years. Then real #mermaidlife began for me and my hair was constantly chewed up by the sun and the sea, so I sported bald heads and little Afros for most of my childhood. Now though, I have a FULL head of hair and it STILL makes me start when I realize my hair is tickling me in weird places. #MermaidHair #DontCare #dreadlocks
