Not only does Monaé have gorgeous Locs, but she is a beautiful person and an extremely talented Celebrity Loctician! After she stopped fighting the urge to go natural, she loc’d her hair up and hasn’t looked back since!

How long have you been natural/ transitioning?
Natural for 5 years. Loc’d for 3 years.

What or who inspired you to go natural?
I’ve ALWAYS thought locs where so beautiful. I wanted to loc my hair for years but I was scared to cut my hair. I was one of these girls where my hair was everything! It was long, down my back, I didn’t want to cut it, and I had a relaxer since grade school. I didn’t know what my natural curl pattern looked like.

When I became pregnant, I cut my relaxer out. Simply because it was easier to shampoo, put product in, and go for a pregnant lady, LOL. I didn’t feel like doing anything to my hair. I wore my hair natural, getting blow outs, for about a year. I loved the versatility from my curly fro to straightening with a flat iron, but locs were still in thoughts. Then, on Feb. 22, 2008, I loc’d my hair and have been in love with them ever since!Crown Chronicle of @Creationz_Monae - http://CURLYNUGROWTH.COM

What products and/or methods are you currently using to maintain your hair?
I don’t maintenance my hair that often now, I go natty. But when I do I use Barry Fletcher’s Loc Serum. I always keep my hair moisturized with Natural Oasis oil and Design Essential’s Shampoo and Conditioner. Deep conditioning from time to time since I have color.

What products have you tried and highly recommend?
I love Natural Oasis Oil and the Hot Oil treatments. It’s light enough for locs, but still gets the moisturizing job done.

What products (if any) have you tried and do not recommend?
For locs, I wouldn’t recommend anything heavy. Grease, waxes, heavy oils. It leaves a residue in your locs and creates build up.

What is one thing that you know now, that you wish you knew in the beginning of your journey?
How my curl pattern was. I would have been cut my hair and loc’d my hair way before I did.

What reference(s) do you frequent for information about products, advice, and/or tutorials about natural hair?
I’m a hairstylist so I do a lot of classes to keep me updated on products, and different techniques.

Hey Layla, I saw your questions on the other post. Can you send me an email through the CONTACT page and we can discuss your new locs in more detail. 🙂

She’s beautiful and her dreads are amazing. I’ve just started my journey with baby locs which don’t suit me very much at the moment, but Monaes are truly inspiring 🙂
