It's been since forever since I did one of my sevens. So here's to 7 amazing loc heads who have inspired me to be a better loc head.
I love the world we live in today where you don't have to move an inch and yet you have the world at your finger tips. All you really need is a screen of some sort and internet then you are good to go. Locitude for what it is today was largely inspired by the following loc heads. The internet made it possible to connect and I'm happy to have taken it seriously enough to find one more thing I love so much. My hair.
1. Chescalocs - Francesca Ramsey
Chesca is an amazing woman with a big personality who found youtube as a hobby and fame found her. She describes herself as an actress, comedian, vlogger, graphic designer, consultant and natural hair geek.
She inspired me to learn to do my hair myself. She's really creative and usually funny. Check out her youtube channel for hair videos and you can find other cool stuff she's into here.
2. Bronze Goddess - Shawnda Patterson
The Bronze Goddess is one down-to-earth mother of 3 who looks like a teenager. Her hair videos are fun and easy to watch and recreate. Bronze Goddess inspires me to "babe it up". She always looks amazing, though I imagine her life is not a bed a roses; between caring for 3 kids, she helps people by giving advice through her vlogs called "strawberry letters" and she very recently authored a book "The Dating Game: How to Find yourself while looking for Mr. Right". I love her for being very consistent.
Bronze Goddess describes herself as a motivational speaker, life coach, makeup enthusiast, full time mommy and part time diva. I think the diva part is mostly full time as well :). See the Bronze Goddess for yourself on youtube.

3. Locs Revolution - Niyya Tenee
Niyya Tenee is the founder of Locs revolution, she's is one passionate individual whom I have had the pleasure of communicating with one on one. She helped take Loc Appreciation Day to the next level by organising meet ups in New York. She also coordinates organisers of LAD events worldwide. She has a fantastic persona and a good heart, I can feel it all the way from the other side of the world.
Niyya fancies herself as loc stylist, blogger, vlogger, natural hair enthusiast, event coordinator and works as a public health worker by day. She says more than all of these she's an urban single mom trying to make the world a better place for her son.
She inspires me through her passion. Learn more about Niyya through her website. www.locsrevolution.com and follow her on facebook for constant loc inspiration photos.
4. Jasmine rose
Jasmine describes herself as a lover of locs/natural hair, beauty, fashion, health/wellness and all things feminine. I have learnt a few step by step processes of styling my locs from her and most importantly this babe is neat, OMG! I'm inspired by the neatness of her room. Maybe one day, I'll get my room to look like that :).
Follow her on YouTube or visit her blog. Another thing you should know about Jasmine is that she's an obvious lover of purple.
Love her hair videos called loc chronicles. She also does know how to keep it very real. So for some loc realness check out Koko's Loc Chronicles here.
I actually get inspired by her realness, she says it as it is and when you having those "off with this damn loc moments". Koko femme is with you.
6. Jungle Barbie - Synethia EnnisJungle Barbie is a model from Jamaica who I love for her fantastic and creative loc updos. She's always fab. Always Always. She recently just had a baby and looks great. I'm personally looking forward to her come back.
Warning: You may spend a whole day on her blog. You can also find her on YouTube here.
7. Lyzadora - Tokini Bilaye - Benibo
Lyzadora is a US based Nigerian who's into beauty, hair styling, fitness and makeup. I first noticed her on Instagram and was so proud to find out she's Nigerian. Her hair is gorgeous. This post made me find out a little more about her and I'm genuinely impressed with her work.
Her Instagram pictures inspired me.
This post has turned out much longer than I had bargained for, so I'll wrap it up very quickly. The way I see it all the women above have gone about doing something for themselves and in turn it has inspired me. You never know who's watching and how much you can influence someone else by just living your life. Stay Positive. Wake Up everyday and do something, if not for anyone else let it be for you.
Keep keeping it loc'd with an attitude.
Gat to run.
Your Loc Head,
