The Best Product For Locking Hair

The Kinky-ier / nappy-ier/ curlier your hair is the faster you’ll see results with this product.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I suggest you take a seat if you aren’t, strap on your seat belt and wait for it….

This product is the best thing nature has to offer, the most effective and affordable to all classes of income. It’s easy to purchase and available in all parts of the earth known to man. I know you are thinking “it has to be WATER” but no you are wrong. It is even more accessible because you already have it, I promise not to keep you waiting for much longer…. But let me just say this when you use it, it is guaranteed to work wonders; not just for locking your hair but for attaining length too. This product is the best, when in doubt use it and you’ll never regret it. Now let me introduce you to the one and only product guaranteed to loc your hair….

Put your hands together for….. “TIME”.

J I hope you are not disappointed, but this is one truth that should be said more often in the hair community. Regardless of the method you start locs with, Time has the biggest role in helping you see results. For instance, when my locs were started in 2009, the method used was very shoddy but my hair locked eventually. Not because of the coffee and toothpaste mix (please don’t ask) or the block of mattress that was used to rub my hair/head aggressively but because Time passed and Kinky hair did what it had to. It Locked.

When you start out locs with the free form method, Time evidently plays its part. Ever wondered why the locking process is broken down into phases?… Starter/Baby locs, Budding Phase and then finally the Locked phase, it is because time has to pass. I’ll move to the interlocking method, whilst results seem immediate, look closely at those interlocked strands, you’ll see a difference between the freshly interlocked part and the part that time has done a number on.

The good thing about locking your hair is that you don’t have to sit around waiting for it to happen, all you have to do is carry on with life and it happens eventually. This brings me to one of my very good friends called Patience. Please don’t be a product junkie, there’s no need. A good shampoo, conditioner, a blend of oils and some patience whilst letting time do it's thing is all you really really need on this path .

If you have scalp issues or need for any other products then it will be wise to discuss with an experienced hair care professional, Trichologist or Dermatologist. Hope you’ve gained a thing or two from this post. Do you agree or do you have a product that tops Time? Let me know, drop a comment if you please.

Last week was ultimate week of Weddings in my life, so permit me to disturb you with a couple of selfies.

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
