Interview Spotlight: New to Locs?

We’re back Loves!

It is my mission to talk to as many of you who embrace your curls out in the world.  I will stop and talk to educate myself on healthy and lovely hair, no matter how he/she chooses to wear their hair.

This week I spotted a *Naturalista at my busstop on my way to work who is in the beginning stages of loc’ing her hair. I find it interesting.

* For all intensive purposes and protection of privacy the interviewee will remain anonymous.

Read on…

NH: Hi there, wow look at how great your curls look

*Interviewee: Yeah, I’ve just started loc’ing my hair. A lady started the locs and its just started. The curls in the back are loc’ing faster than those in the front (showing the tighter curl patten in the back).

NH: Do you mind if I take a closer look at your locs? Can I touch one?

Interviewee: Sure. Go right ahead.

NH: Do you mind me asking why you decided to transition to locs?

Interviewee: I’m adopting two little girls and it did not take me long to figure out I’d be spending a lot of much needed time doing alot of hair. The locs are lower maitenance than my afro or twists.

NH: That makes perfect sense. So, what products are you using?

Interviewee: I am allergic to bees wax so have to use a product (name I don’t recall). I have it in my phone. I’ll share it with you.*Don’t worry the Interviewee shared pics of the product that she uses (left frame)

NH: (Taking pic of product on phone). Thank you for your time.

My thoughts:  I’ve never heard of anyone being allergic to bee’s wax, but any product that states no animal testing or harsh or harmful chemicals used deserves taking a second look.  However, I no longer purchase beeswax. It’s a sealing product which doesn’t necessarily allow the hair to breath.
