My Very First Lock Vlog

I have a Youtube Channel that up to this point I've primarily been using to post slideshows of how beautiful locks are and can be. Well, I've just started creating vids to add to my channel and this is my first lock vlog installment.

I thought I'd share it with you since you've all been so supportive on my blog, so I thought you might want to see my vlogs as well. As I mention in the video, I'll be posting more in the future and will be using my vlogs as a forum to answer some of the questions I receive both here and on youtube!

Came across these and found them so hilarious. I've even experienced this at one time or another. Guess you've gotta be a thug when you're black and have locks, right?

Locked Beauty of the Month: Jimetta Rose

This is another MS friend who's an artist based in LA. I love how she represents natural beauty as well as showing how beautiful us thick sisters can be! I love the thickness of her locks and how she rocks them with such style!

Here's a video she's featured in by a group called The Living Legacy:

Cute updo...

My hair stylist Wynnel hooked me up with a cute updo.

It's been so hot and my locks are getting long enough that they're just adding to my feeling so hot all the time, so I asked Wynnel to do an updo for me. It's been some time since I've had my locks in an updo and now that my hair is getting longer, I think I'm going to have to do them more often!

I really liked this style and kept it in for a week until it started getting a bit fuzzy and my scalp was crying for some moisturizer in the areas that I couldn't get to with it in the updo.
