Tonight, I whipped out my shears and trimmed off most of these. I did leave a few that I thought would manage to integrate into the locs, but most of them were just crazy looking. I know that "grooming" locs is a somewhat controversial subject, and I'm okay with it to this degree. I do not foresee myself trimming off the random fuzzies along my locs as some do when they groom though.
For now I'm content with my locs as is, but I'm considering having them colored again maybe something more coppery. I really can't believe that in nine days my locs will be ten months old.
