I spent my day drinking wine naked, painting, and blasting Erykah and Lauryn. This is the outcome, the lovely Loredana.

You have any tips on loc maintenance? Also any directories I can look into?(YouTube, Tumblr page, etc) long time follower btw. Plan to show MUCH more support.

Maintaining dreadlocks is very different from maintaining other natural hair styles.

Your maintenance routine will vary depending on the age of your dreads and the method you used to start them.

The two most popular methods for starting and maintaining dreadlocks in natural black hair are twisting/palmrolling and latching.

=> here there is a great article about the two methods https://www.knattydread.com/pages/maintain-dreadlocks


FEW TIPS FOR HEALTHY DREADLOCKS

1- FIND A GOOD LOCKTICIAN

A locktician that can give you great advice and recommend healthy products. Make sure you feel comfortable with her or him and have a real conversation about your hair objectives and your desired look.

2- KEEP YOUR LOCS CLEAN

Locs thrive in a clean environment. When you are first starting locs, water actually helps to loc your hair faster. Once you are fully locked continue to wash your hair on a regular basis. Cleansing is a part of any healthy hair care routine.

3- MASSAGE YOUR SCALP

It stimulates hair growth. You’d be surprised how the simple act of gently massaging your hair at night for about 5 minutes, will really help you achieve the beautiful locs you desire.

4- MOISTURE YOUR LOCKS

Give your locs the moisture it craves, starting from the scalp, down to the tip of the loc. Be careful to avoid products, such as creams and heavy waxes, that can cause build up in the loc. Use oils such as Olive oil to start with as you gain more knowledge about locs.

5- DON’T RETWIST YOUR HAIR TOO MUCH

If done too often it can start to create breakage and thinning at the root. Your edges are especially sensitive and prone to breaking off, so just be careful, you don’t want your hairline to lean back.

4- SLEEP WITH A SCARF

Locs tend to shed a lot, and protecting your edges and your scalp is crucial. A silk night cap helps keep the moisture in your hair and scalp, as well as protect your hair from pillow friction.

5- EXPERIMENT !

Try different ways of cleaning, oiling and styling your hair. Everyone’s hair has different textures and no ONE technique will work for everyone

6- USE NATURAL PRODUCTS

There are a lot of products out there that are made with just chemicals, and/or “natural” ingredients mixed with chemical ingredients that will strip your hair of its natural oils that is needed to hydrate, moisturize and grow. Natural ingredients, still give you the same benefit as any of the chemical based products but with no side effects

7- BE PATIENT

Locking your hair is a journey and it’s a little different for each person. Some people’s hair locs faster than others. Thicker hair tends to lock faster. But if
you take good care of your hair then the growth will come. So don’t get discouraged.

8- ENJOY YOUR JOURNEY

Don’t compare yourself with others that are in the in their loc journey. Locs is a process. Take your time and enjoy your hair.

Hiran had been to the museum many times, however, this was the first time he grabbed a map. Confused by the lack of proper directions, Hiran wondered how tourists managed with these lackluster instructions ( or maybe the Montague Captain knew a better way of navigation ).

“So this is how locals feel,” he thought aloud, to no one in particular. 

 My loc journey began 14 years, inspired by the lack of skilled barbers in the area I was living at the time. Never knew that I would enjoy ever stage of this journey, from small knots to the length of my back, strength, spirit, and history are embedded in these locs.

 Goals, aspirations, and personal endeavors can change when life happens to us. I co-founded an event-planning firm in Toronto and maintained a commercial/modeling career as well. When my mom in Florida suddenly got ill, I left Toronto (and quite a few of my possessions) temporarily to be by her side. The Divine has a way of allowing one life event to aligning our souls’ purpose, or cultivate a clearer perspective.

 My primary goal is continue my participation in the healing love for my mother as she recovers to greatness. I aspire to evoke the spirit of care, selflessness, and patience she so richly instilled in us while we’re on this path. Yes…I’m modeling still, and events will be there, however seeing God increase in this space has enriched me greatly. We are achieving success together…day by day!

“Why do I succeed?

I succeed because I am willing to do the things you are not. I will fight against the odds. I will sacrifice. I am not shackled by fear, insecurity or doubt. I feel those emotions…drink them in and then swallow them away to the darkest of hell. I am motivated by accomplishment, not pride. Pride consumes the weak…kills their heart from within. If I fail…I will get up. If I am beaten….I will return. I will never stop getting better. I will never give up…ever.

That is why I succeed”

No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, show up, and never give up. Every champion was once a contender…

Your vibe attracts your tribe .:.
