We are two curlfriends, "Curlie & Locs" bridging the gap between loc'd and loose naturals. We blog about hair, life, style and topics surrounding the natural hair community as well as sharing our natural journeys.
As a little girl my hair was very long and took my mother forever to style it so one day I cut it off. Since my mom was use to styling long hair the short curly hair was frightening to her so I got my first “Just for Me” perm at age 5. I continued to perm my hair as an adult since it was all I knew to do. I tried short hair cuts, ponytails, weaves, lace front wigs and braids. I even became a licensed Cosmetologist….

In this video I discuss why I believe the best time to loc hair is in/or before the start of the winter months. I also go over my go-to style and protective/ winter styles which I do between re-twists, during cold months and how I mask the fuzzy period. Don’t expect an “ugly stage” from me hunty because theres nothing “ugly” or “dreadful” about my locs!
Sometimes I look up and a week has passed by and you have done nothing to your hair, or at least for me. I’m a full time student with several other things happening in my life and at times my hair doesn’t get the attention it deserves or need. But, I’m human. This is a video of how I deal with my hair in this dangerously dry state.
Growing up I use to hate my hair, I’d look to everyone else with press and curls and braids with pretty beads and I wished I could have it. I grew up in a conservative family, so I wasn’t allowed to straighten, perm, pretty much do anything manipulative to my hair. At the same time I went to a catholic school out of town that was also conservative, we were prohibited from hair beads, hair barrettes, anything colorful that would “distract” from our uniform.
I’ve always been a natural girl. Lots of braids, puffs and curls. I ended 2006 and began 2007 with many different hair styles. Something was definitely changing. I was in massage school and my vibration was shifting. I used my work time wisely, researching all I could about Dread Locs. I was not a rasta gyal but their meaning resonated well with me. I got my last press & curl in June 2007 for my birthday.
