I’d like to introduce all of you to Shannon my newest client and brave soul. She has graciously allowed me to post her videos and photos for your viewing pleasure. So please, give her your support and as always remember what our mothers taught us…”if you don’t have nothin good to say”…(you know the rest). Shannon’s hair locking journey will be documented on this site-so stay tuned.

Shannon had color and texurizer on her ends. Of course this affected her natural curl. Her ends were damaged and would not readily coil. She held a very good coil near her scalp, but as I continued to coil, the ends remained loose. Many of her ends had to be clipped. The clipping of Shannon’s ends will probably continue for the next few groomings. Shannon is on a 4 week grooming schedule.

Shannon has great hair texture for locking and an incredible positive attitude for going through the locking process. It’ll be fun watching her transition and documenting her loc journey. Thanks Shannon! If you haven’t seen her interview, check it out.

Dreadlock Interview w/Shannon Part 2 of 2

Great before and after pictures in this one. I’ll post them separately so you can see them up close.

Shannon is my newest client and I’m excited to have her as part of our "Healthylockers" family. She has new locks, which are considered "Baby Locks or Baby Locs". Shanon will be sharing her locking process from the perspective of a woman working in a professional environment. I hope this will help a lot of sisters who are hesitant about going natural or locking their hair because you don’t know how it will be accepted or what people will think of you. Great insight here. Click on the videos (Part 1 and Part 2) to see how the interview went.  Then…

Spring Locks (Promo) Part 2

Here’s part 2 for Spring Locks. The locks are amazingly bouncy, springy and coily! Make sure you view Part 1 first.

Hey gang. Here’s a new styling technique for your locks.  Although it’s not revealed in the video, this style is being created with pipe cleaners…Yes, pipe cleaners!  The instructional video will be out soon, showing you step-by step how to create spiral curls in your dreadlocks, locs and Sisterlocks.  You can click here to to learn more about this technique.

Here’s Robin returning the favor!

I’ve coined the term “Dry Conditioning”. It’s a great way to keep your locks moisturized and healthy. This technique does wonders for dry thirsty locks and especially color-treated locks. The two main products that I use is the Healthylocks Conditioning Mist (my own creation and secret recipe), to condition the locks and add moisture and the second is the Anahita Conditioning Hair Oil by Warm Spirit. It smells incredible, it keeps my locks soft and helps to hold in the moisture. My clients love them. I’ll be creating a post featuring my favorite products real soon. In the meantime, you can visit www.Pamperdiva.com for Warm Spirit products including the Anahita hair oil. You can contact me directly from that website if you’re also interested in the Healthylocks Conditioning mist.

A great 3 part series with my sister who has “Traditional” locks. I started Robin’s locks approximately 4 years ago. At that time, she only had 2 inches of new growth and about 5 inches of permed hair. Of course, we cut off the perm (the Big Chop) and she had very short coils close to her head when we were finished. Her locks are lovely now.
