Another way to style natural hair is to put your coily strands in Bantu Knots. The beauty about these African hair bumps is that not only are they a style in and on itself, they work for all hair types and if you take them out you have just another fabulous style.
Like so many daughters from the Diaspora, I started relaxing my hair when I was a teenager. I didn’t know any better than that it was a rite of passage and I was happy to have my Afro straightened.
After half a year I already felt that my braid locs settled in but now that it’s nine months I realize it will be an ongoing process for at least two years to come. Basically until my hair reaches a certain length at a point where it doesn’t change your face as much. Right now […]
Crown of Locs is choosen once more for two New York Exibitions. This time out of 1,900 submissions!
Hello family, How are you and how is your hair doing? I finally got my locs started. Not only is there a video to show you a bit of how it was done, I also have a braid loc special in case you want to get yours started. So if you are interested you should […]
One of the reasons I choose for braid locs is because I think it’s the easiest way to start locs. My hair is naturally frizzy, so single twists were out of the question but even two strand twists would be hard to manage. Another reason is that I wanted micro locs.
If you’ve been to a natural hair show in the past years, it’s very likely that you have seen this model who goes by the name of Mr. Golden Child. As model and an artist he uses his chest long locs to set himself apart from the rest. As an images says 1.000 words it’s […]
I have been ready for a while but creating samples, testing natural hair products and updating my websites made it nearly impossible for me to start locs. There is a bright side to this though, I had extra time to research. So if you’ve ever considered locking and want to join me on this loc […]
After showing my collection to Lawrence Rodriguez, the owner of Casa Frela invited me to have an exhibition. For a month nearly 40 pieces of the Going-Natural collection where on display in the prestigious gallery, that is not just a beautiful brownstone in the Mount Morris Historical District in Harlem. It is also the venue […]
I started my semi-freeforming journey about 5 weeks ago. I chose this route for several reasons. For one, I was afraid that if I constantly retwisted, my locs would get thin at the roots and I don’t ever wanna go down like that. Secondly, I really want to give my hairline a break. I notice that […]
Sisterlocks Grid Pattern : Loc count varies according to hair density, the size you want your locs to be as well as the size of your head. Typically women with Sisterlocks can have anywhere from 250 to more than 800 Sisterlocks. And yes, they both have Sisterlocks installed by certified consultants/trainees. By Terez Howard
As noted on my natural hair website, “Fragile, thin natural hair has flourished in Sisterlocks. If the hair is not cared for properly, it will break, regardless if you have Sisterlocks, traditional locs or loose hair. No. Sisterlocks’ small size really are the perfect style for thin-haired naturals. By Terez Howard

Time and time again, those who adorned their heads with locks have turned […]
