  1. Aw man AWESOME. I love talking about my hair and could talk about it for hours. I am very much connected to my locs, I speak positive about them and to them (much like my granny use to do her Ivy plants). It is all natural and alive and needs love, and helps them grow. I have been natural since about 2005-2006. Went from bedhead, to afro, to cornrolls, to dreads in 2007. My locs(natural) means to me a very deep connection to Africa and my ancestors. I love the freedom we as black/poc can sculpt with our hair. When I went natural it was a major step for me, and I rec’d crap for it as well. Yes our community of black folk can be quite cruel. Unlike some, I pressed on, stood my ground and represented who I am. Love my nappy knots!!!

    My hair is also an extension of my overall body care as well. I work along side a close friend making organic body care products, so when my body feels good and taken care of my hair feels it and vice verse. I dedicate time to caring for my body, head to feet. As a matter of fact just last week was reminded, while at a all organic spa, to remember to thank my feet for all it does. So of course the same applies to my hair. Thank you dreads.
