Tell me a little about the history of your hair?
My mother permed my hair at age 9. Then I wore Jerri Curls after my perm failed. I wore perm for a long time and during my university years I decide that I would go natural and so I wore braids. Since 2002 I have had locks and I am happy that I made the decision. I feel free because my hair is in it’s natural state and I am happy.
What was your relaxer experience like?
It was a very terrible experience. I would get burns each time I got a perm even when I did not irritate my scalp. I hate hair dryers and I usually spend hours under them.
What made you choose the loc type that you have over any other types of locs ?
I like small locks because I think they look neat.
How long have you had your locs?
What method do you use to maintain them (ex: Palm rolling, latch hook, twisting) ?
Interlocking and twisting
Your loc routine?
I usually wash my hair, deep condition, hot oil, moisturize, either twist/interlock, plait/rod curl.
What are your favorite products?
I like using lots of products from my kitchen that I make but I also use products that I buy. I like Dr. Bonner’s Magic Soap (Tea Tree/Peppermint shampoo), Jamaican Castor oil, tea tree oil, lock and twist gel, Oyin Honey hemp Conditioner, and Natural Shea butter.
Do you feel that your locs are versatile? Why?
Yes I do. I can create whatever hairstyle I want with no limitations or time constraints.
Have you gotten more compliments on your natural hair or more on your relaxed?
Yes, I have. I have gotten so many compliments that I started my own blog (.com) record videos for YouTube (pecadora99)
Any advice for those considering your loc choice?
It’s one of the best choices you will ever make. Locks are stylish, versatile and strong. You will have endless possibilities of harstyles.
