tbh idk why i get so many questions about hair seeing that i’ve only been loc’d for a month and some change

meanwhile, llxydcvmby has had locs since utero so direct all future questions to him

no need to thank me Lloyd, no need to thank me

all locs are different and unique to the wearer

hey

sincerelytamaraa asked: I want to loc my hair! I've been looking for locticians in my area, but there are very few here in Arkansas (as you would probably imagine). I know that I'm definitely gonna try to at some point in my life. I'm not sure what exactly is holding me back though. I have a few questions. Do you ever miss your fro? What made you decide to maintain your locs yourself? Did you have hair-styling skills before you started locing?

Hi :) I love questions so keep ‘em coming :D

Do you ever miss your fro?

No, I’m so over the fro thing. I’ve done it (seen here) and SMH. The amount of work I had to put in to keep it clean and healthy was ridiculously time consuming and UGH UGH UGH NO. If decide to become a loose natural again, I’m wearing a super low cut again for the rest of my life.

What made you decide to maintain your locs yourself?

After my mom stopped doing my hair at like ten years old, I took over. The only time I let someone else touch my hair was when I was going to the salon to get a relaxer (ugh horrid memories). Quite frankly, no one can do my hair exactly to way I want it except me. I’m too much a control freak when it come to my appearance. The same way I don’t trust people to dress me, is the same way I don’t trust people to touch my hair. It’s too personal.

Did you have hair-styling skills before you started locing?

Yeah. I wasn’t formally trained or anything but I’ve always been able to do my own hair as well as the hair of others. 

yes I’ve palm rolled twice

the first time I used water and clips and slept with them. In the morning they were dry and so I took them out. they looked neat and my mother was pleased  (results seen here)

the second time (seen here) I started but I took them out before I completed my whole head

I don’t like the look of manicured locs on me and it makes no sense for me to palm roll anymore because I’m constantly spraying my hair with water and so they always unravel. I prefer my roots thick and unkempt anyway

I’m am no longer retwisting

thank you very much for your kind words :) I thoroughly enjoy yours

I started them with finger coils (twirled wet hair around my finger). At first they looked similar to comb coils but were a lot looser and less uniform. I’m against using gels or waxes in my hair so they only stayed twisted for a day and morphed into just clumps of hair if you can imagine what I’m saying. Does this make sense?

After every wash and while my hair is still wet, I examine my hair to see if two or more of my locs are starting to become tangled at the root. If so, just pull them apart. I don’t want any of them growing together. In the beginning I used to wear bantu knots a lot and that helped keep then separated

nattyrootzz asked: Heyy, love your hair. My gf wants to know how yu got them like that !?

thanks, but get like what exactly?

it looks like I have less locs than you and your girlfriend (I only have have 46) and so they’re fatter but at the same time, both of you are further along in your journeys so your locs are more condensed then mine. I’m only a month in so mine are still puffy

and besides washing weekly, I try and leave them be

it seems to me that you and I are basically doing the same thing whereas hers seem to be more manicured and by manicured I mean twisted semi regularly

yay! I personally have Rain, Sparrow, and Luna (I have have twins) on my list but there are soooooo many nature-y names out there 

River, Aspen, Clover, Ivy, Jasper..

idk my ears are ALWAYS open listening for potential names not so much because I’m obsessed with the idea of having children of my own but more so because I’m just love names and certain letters and sounds if that makes any sense 

like if I never have children, I’ll buy a dog just so I can name him or her. I’d probably name it Aero btw 

In my head the process of choosing makes make sense and idk if I really have the words to explain adequately but I’ll try 

I have a thing for short(er) unisex names. I love the idea giving my children names that can easily be male or female. Actually most of the names on my list (yes I have a list) I consider to be gender fluid

In fashion, I’m obsessed the juxtaposition of hard and soft so I guess it translates to names as well. Like I love the idea of giving a male a name that is a bit softer than the usual and a female something harder than what people normally do.

I think the name Honor flows beautifully. Rain too. 

About Luna: I think I’d only name a child that if she was a part of a pair. Often times when I hear twins names they’re to obviously matchy matchy like Taylor and Tyler. Bleh. I prefer names for twins that give similar feelings when you say them versus rhyming ones or ones that start or end with the same letter

I’d also consider Arias & Luna… although I like Ari better. It has less letters and syllables
Idk if any of this made sense

thanks ☺️

Anonymous asked: At my store we used to sell long boards . If you are serious about boarding for a long time go ahead and spend the money. Another idea is to check out Craigslist, Ebay or Geartrade and other students who's parents bought them a board for Christmas but now they are over it. Get some good flex, invest in trucks.

hey thanks! :)
