Loc Appreciation Day, Lagos 2014 - More Details

Hello there,

I'm really excited, so so excited that I hope to give away all the information in my head without getting distracted. I'm going to try to calm down, sit with my back against the chair and share what Loc Appreciation Day is all about.

Loc Appreciation Day (L.A.D) is an initiative of youtuber Qochemist conceived in 2011; it's is simply a day set aside to appreciate locs. L.A.D is celebrated every 4th Saturday in June. It serves as an opportunity for Loc Heads to share in on there hair journeys, maintenance tips, find the right products for locs and most of all celebrate our crowns.

L.A.D 2014 will be the fourth year anniversary of this very interesting and easy to catch-onto initiative and I'm very happy to be hosting a meet up in Lagos, Nigeria. Loc Heads in London, Boston, New York, Altanta and Conneticut will be meeting up too. It's worldwide baby!!!!

What to expect from L.A.D Lagos.

- A short video - "What are Locs?"
- Panel discussion featuring Locitude, Celebrity loctician/hair dresser Jatto, and a loc sister with waist long locs.
- Vendors with loc products you would never have been able to find in Lagos.
- Maintenance tips
- Styling tips
- DIY tutorials
- Product tips
- Giveaways
- more, more and more.

The event promises to be packed with information and loc excitement like never before.

I'm guilty of starting a loc conversation with every Loc Head I come across, L.A.D 2014 is the place to have the conversation we've all been longing for.

One last thing, for all the creatives out there you can participate in the L.A.D 2014 Logo Contest. Submissions have to be made before the 19th of May, 2014. Watch embedded video below for details.

7 Locitude #LocInspiration Hair Styles for Short Locs.

Hello Loc Heads, This one is obviously for fellow loc heads in the awkward phase of their locs. The awkward phase is usually sometime around Day 1 - Year 2; when your head is full of scalp after a fresh re-twist and your locs seem too scanty, when your hair unravels after a fresh re-twist before you say can say Jack Robinson; when you think water is your worst enemy because it's preventing your locs from forming; when you are having a bad hair day and you feel like - Oh God if only I could get my hair into a ponytail it would do. I can go on and on... but instead I present you with 7 Style Ideas for short locs. #LocInspiration no. 1: Loc loops or Loc petals. Reminds me of a cropped hair cut, this style looks classy and elegant. Can be worn to an event. It's also neat and can help with a more serious/subtle look. #LocInspiration no. 2: Pinned Up side. Even though it is just pinning up one side of your locs, it always make a difference. A touch Style. You can use ha

To Free Form, Semi Free Form or not.

Hiya, My Locs would reach the 6 year mark this year and as you may imagine I'm getting a bit bored (Yes, I get bored too). This time I'm not thinking to cut them, I have considered colour but not sure I want to commit to being 100% diligent with the silk bonnet, daily moisturising and fear that my locs may thin out from the colour in another year or three. This time I'm thinking to Free Form or should I say Semi Free form or Not. Ladene Clark If you don't already know, Free Form is a method of getting locs by doing nothing to your hair. You stop combing it and the hair mats itself. I'm of the opinion that this is the one true state of locs and they are beautiful. I retwisted my locs over 8 weeks ago, March 28th to be specific, in an attempt to Semi Free form; which means I stopped retwisting I just wash, condition and oil them. Then I try separating them at the roots so that I maintain existing loc strands and here's my observation so far.

A Decade of Locs - Who am I?

Hello there, It has been more than a minute on the blog and social media generally, I know; but I won't bore you with promises of not going missing again 'cos I have been as unpredictable as 2020. As unpredictable as I can be, I realize I have an ability to follow through eventually. So, I am hanging on to my strengths rather than my weaknesses 😊 and writing this post.  For as long as I can remember having my locs, I have always imagined that one day when my locs are long enough, I would take a picture rising out of the ocean with my hair as my top covering. I have spoken a lot about this over the years.  Fam, I did it!!!  On one hand, my boobs cooperated, they chilled on sagging and my locs eventually caught up. On the other hand, I also wanted rock hard abs, more like a tummy as flat as a drawing board while that didn't happen, my tummy is not an eyesore, right? I sucked belle. I tried, honestly I really tired. Unfortunately, I won't be sharing the topless pictures a
