"You Can't Make It In Corporate America With Locs"...Supposedly.

It hurts me that in this day and age we, as a people, cannot embrace our own culture. I recently discovered the article in Black Enterprise entitled "Hampton University School of Business Bans Dreadlocks"....and I did the double take, like really?! I personally know several people that went to Hampton and a few of them actually have locs and graduated and landed great jobs, so why is it that the Dean insists "Male students enrolled in the school's 5-year MBA program who take the seminar class cannot wear dreadlocks or cornrows in class"?!

[Tutorial] How to Put Cowrie Shells in Your Hair

I have gotten so many questions about how I add accessories to my Sisterlocks, so I decided to make a quick tutorial to show you how I do it. You can use this method on Sisterlocks Traditional Locs, Two-Strand Twists or Braids. 

If you don't know where to get Cowrie Shells, the Ankh Cowrie Shell is available in the SHOP [HERE].

[Product Review] My Tropical Roots Firm Locking Gel

The new My Tropical Roots line was sent to me to review on Traditional Locs and I have used it a few times over the past few months on TB's hair to retwist his locs. This particular review is for the "Firm Locking Gel".

Hair Diary: Side Swoop & Braid Outs!

In the beginning of this month, I styled my hair in a Lochawk for the 2nd Annual DMV Natural Hair Meetup. 

I loved this style and even planned to keep it in for a few weeks, but needless to say I took it out within a few days, LOL. If you're curious about why I took it down, check out the Sisterlocks Vlog #39 update [HERE].

So in the process of taking out the Lochawk, I stumbled upon another style...The Side Swoop... which I LOVE!

[Recap] Natural Connection Meetup By Zarah Charm

This past weekend I was in Baltimore for The Natural Connection Meetup hosted by Natural Hair Stylist Zarah Charm. 

The meetup was held at Na'klectic Salon and as soon as I walked it I felt welcomed. There were refreshments, door prizes, swag bags, friendly people and an overall great atmosphere...not to mention fly natural hair styles!

This year's 2nd Annual DMV Meetup hosted by The Mane Definition
