Hair Beads

Hair Beads for Locs

Solange isn’t the only one that can wear a head full of beads. Rockin’ hair beads in your locs is definitely a fun accent to try— especially using gold beads (thank me later!).

Temporary Hair Spray

Using temporary hair spray on your locs is like trying on the color before committing to the real thing, but I will warn you— it can get trapped in your locs (remember that one time I tried the liquid hair chalk?!).

Hello can you tell me more about inter locking pros and cons, I have tried both.

Thank you ! Found my answer to my guestion re: parting of the hair. However, I am definitely all the way in the adult stage loc’d completely except around the fine baby hairs around my temples. Similar, to your hair. Just don’t want to start over rather embrace what this journey and keep it moving. Now that I am purchasing products from your business I am certain that a ”change will come” .I guess lines don’t have to be too PERFECT. PEACE .

I like what you said about hair beads and how it’s a fun accent to try. I think that accessorizing is a great way for people to reveal personality through clothing. I have a friend with dreadlocks, so I’ll recommend the idea of getting beads to put in from a reputable supplier.

I am interested in becoming a loctician in Texas. How can I go about doing that.

Congratulations on choosing a passion for a career path! If you are interested in becoming a Certified Loctician that specializes in Holistic Hair Locking practices I have an upcoming training in March, which you can learn more by clicking here.

Alternatively, you can visit salons locally and seek a mentor that shares the same philosophies as you.

Thank you. Unfortunately I have a prior engagement in that weekend. But I will contact salons locall. Thank you so much for your response.
