If we don’t embrace our naturalness, then who else will. The creations we make so effortlessly with our natural hair is something that could never be imitated. This Locked-In hair style is an example of who we are, Natural-Born Queens. Dreadlocks have been a big part of our history dating back to before the ancient Egypt days as a symbol of strength and spirituality.
Business Owner, Sabine Bellevue, of Sabine’s Hallway Natural Hair Salon believes that healthy hair starts from the knowledge of self. Sabine’s hair salon educates clients on proper hair care and aids in the transition from chemical treated hair to natural hair. She created the “Locked-In” style as a self-expression protective style that can be worn to many social functions and events. Sabine’s approached to the locks are designed from single dreads, combined with two or more other dreads. After combined, hair is twisted around to form looped ropes that connects. The hair is then pinned down under the twists to hold in place. The illusion this style creates is one of a Black Natural Queen.
Just like with any hair style, the dreads must be properly taken care of to maintain the health of your hair. Sabine created this locked protective style with the use of products from Going-Natural. Going-Natural’s line is catered to naturals or those transitioning to become natural. Their hair-care products are created with essential oils, natural butters, and moisturizing agents that are needed to ensure the highest quality of health that hair can experience. To create the Locked-In style, Sabine used Going-Natural Herbal shampoo to cleanse the hair, Going-Natural Scalp Conditioning Spray to spray the hair and scalp with nutrients to provide overall moisture while the hair is locked-in, and lastly Going-Natural’s Loc Glove. The Loc glove aids in creating tight locks by helping them dry almost instantly. The soft texture of the glove also keeps the locks clean by the microscopic fibers that sweep up dust particles and dirt left over in the hair without damaging your mane.
Proper maintenance for this style requires a nightly routine of Going-Natural Scalp Conditioning Spray to keep style fresh. Make sure to wrap hair, especially the root to prevent frizz and dryness.
