Hi, I'm NaturaLocs, a music teacher from England UK.
When and why did you decide to go natural and/or start locs?
I decided that locs were for me in Nov 2011 and entered 2012 as a new natural. I think locs are beautiful and I needed a change. Locs will signify my transition from a negative past to a positive future.
What method did you use to transition to natural hair and/or what method did you use to start your locs?
I started wearing kinky twist extensions for about 2 months and cut my hair down to a TWA shortly after. My locs were started with comb coils.
What is your favorite way to style your hair?
I like wearing head scarves and throw in occasional flat twists when shrinkage isn't against me :)
What are 3 products or tools you cannot live without?
I couldn't live without water, olive oil and baking soda for a good cleanse.
What have been some of the challenges and rewards you've experienced with going natural and/or cultivating locs?
Social confidence has been a challenge recently, it's hard for people to understand why you'd have such "rough" looking hair by choice! I've been inspired to change other aspects of my life and have become more self aware.
What advice do you have for anyone interested in going natural and/or growing locs?
