My Favourite Curly Looks On Locs

“Curls, curls, curls…curls I do adore” [singing] Lol, ok to be serious now :-)…lately I have been fun trying out different curl styles/patterns on my locs! My locs are now at that length where I can experiment more with curls. I used to look at at lock’ed sisters with long, curly locs and be so envious and wonder when I would be [...]

My Latest Obsession - Suede Nike Blazer High Tops

I only bought these in back March but you’d never tell…like if shoes could go on a strike, this pair would be on their 2nd month.

Product Review: Jamaican Mango & Lime Locking Gel

I FINALLY got my hands on the Jamaican Mango & Lime range of products! Woop! I have seen it appear in a few reviews from other loc’ed naturals but somehow I thought this brand wasn’t available in South Africa. Then the other day I came across a post from Africanhairblog on a list of clarifying shampoos. As I read through her post, one of [...]

In the beginning all I needed was a Jabu Stone spray, a Colgate shampoo and some moulding cream and then I was set.
