Over 70 live die-hard viewers stayed to the very end. If this live broadcast was a book, it would be a ‘page turner’.
I didn’t give anything away; I didn’t have a sale and no special guest was invited. Actually, I did have special guests – all the wonderful viewers who called in and asked their most pressing questions about their locks.
Lots of ‘Loc Secrets’ were revealed in this broadcast, so it would behoove you to watch it as soon as possible.
Oh my, and just when you think you can’t watch anymore…you’re mesmerized by the "Before and After" pictures at the very end. You don’t even want to blink. You’ll witness incredible "Before and After" pics of my client’s locs from installation day to 2-4 years down the road. The transformations are absolutely amazing!
So get to a quiet relaxing place, get out the tea and crackers or just let the broadcast play in the background, but make sure you have pencil and paper to take notes, because a lot of nuggets were dropped and many of the Video Locktician’s "Secrets To Healthy, Long & Stylable Locks" were revealed – I’m not kidding…this was good stuff!
A big "Thank You" to everyone who called in…It’s you who made this broadcast sooo special.
Here’s the info for the REPLAY of the LIVE BROADCAST.
I’m going to enjoy sharing this post with you.You’re about to meet one of my newest Sisterlocks client, Felecia.Felecia, a very attractive woman, has been plagued with pre-mature graying of her hair since she could remember.Because of it, the people who don’t know her assume that she is much older than she actually is.And when going to a salon to get her hair done, they would always give her, “old fashion” styles.Felecia shared with me that she has always permed and dyed her hair and was a very regular customer at the traditional beauty salons.So like most of us prior to locking, Felecia had a regular routine of perming and coloring her hair, which translates into many hours in the salon, dry damaged hair and lots of money spent on a style that’s only going to last until the next humid or rainy day. Permanent black dye was the only dye that would give complete coverage of her gray, but as her gray hair grew in, Felecia says that within a week and a half, you could see the conspicuous line of demarcation, which was literally “white going to black”.Felecia, who works in a professional office atmosphere and who is very active in her church, chuckles as she recalls how her hair looked and was perceived when she was not only growing out her perm, but also growing out of her black dye.She literally had black hair on top of a halo of white new growth, which she confidently wore in a straight afro. (Interesting.I wish I had a picture of that.)Also, as we get older, we desire to take better care of ourselves and Felecia realized that all of that chemical processing so often, needed to stop.
It’s funny when sisters decide that they’ve finally had enough hair drama.For most of us, once you decide to go natural, you become very determined about your hair and how you will deal with “non-naturals”.People closest to you can’t understand for the life of them why anyone would come out in public with their hair like this…
I have to give it to Felecia.She did her homework and actually interviewed two Sisterlocks consultants before finding me on YouTube.On the day of her consultation, she rang my door bell, and as I opened the front door, I was greeted by THREE people –Felecia and her two adult, natural-haired daughters.The younger of the two had natural twists, which she maintained herself and she was just as excited as her mother.The older one, however, who was more guarded and serious, had a head full of beautiful thick traditional locs that cascaded down her back.She had been growing them for over 8 years.During the actual consultation that lasted approximately 3 hours, they peppered me with lots of great questions in between the many questions that I had for Felecia along with watching videos, viewing pictures and asking her about her current hair regimen and her lifestyle.
By the end of the consultation, everyone was relaxed and confident that they had received thorough and accurate info about locked hair and Sisterlocks.It was during this time that I turned to the eldest daughter, smiled and asked, “Did I pass your test?”They all chuckled and agreed that I knew my craft and admitted they wanted to make sure that Felecia (their mother) wasn’t going to be talked into anything and that the person installing her Sisterlocks knew what she was doing – we’ve all heard of the horror stories.
That was funny to me and I occasionally tease Felecia how she came to her consultation with her “posse” and “both barrels loaded”.But at the same time, I had to convey and re-iterate to Felecia that her locking process would definitely be challenging because of the smooth and straight texture of her hair.She would probably experience a lot of slippage, plus she still had a few inches on top that were permed that she wasn’t ready to get rid of. All my experience with gray hair confirms that gray hair has a mind of its own and will almost always work itself outside of the loc.So I really wanted to prepare her for whatever technique she chose for locking. Her process would be a lot longer.Felecia’s hair won’t even resemble locs until close to 2 years in.It will look more like a bushy afro until then.
I will continue to document Felecia’s journey, so visit often.I love the challenging heads.You learn a lot from them.Enjoy the video and wishing everyone a great hair day!
I’m sure you’re curious about what Tiarra’s hair looked like when I first started her locks… well, here are a few photos. Her entire process will be documented in an Ebook that I’m currentlhy working on and she is currently one of the models that will be featured in my instructional DVD. As always, you can click on the picture to enlarge and click again for extreme details.
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.
