My Fave Rockers On IG: @LocCrush
Loccrush is one of my fave naturals on IG simply because of her beautiful spirit, her cute children and above all her beautifully gorgeous locs. She’s an inspiration to naturals with or without locs and most certainly worth the follow!
My name is Denise and I live in the DC area. I am a full time mom to three wonderful children. Married for 12 years. I started my locs after a big chop five years ago. Before locs, I went back and forth between loose natural hair and chemically straightened hair.
What or Who inspired you to go natural? Did you bc or transition?
My scalp condition, Sebborheic Dermatitis, was the biggest reason why I went natural. I’ve tried wearing my hair loose but found that because of my hair’s thickness, it was too much daily maintenance for me. I tend to be more carefree with my hair and I don’t like spending a lot of time styling and adding products. Locs are the perfect balance for me.
I don’t use a lot on my hair. My biggest priority is to keep it clean. When I retwist my own hair, I make flaxseed gel. For moisture, I use coconut oil and Rose Water. That’s it. No, really lol.
Fave go to hairstyle.
I love the versatility of pipecleaner curls. It’s three styles in one without all the fuss. I’m also a sucker for a ponytail. I love being able to just pull my hair up into a messy bun; the bigger the better.
If you had to give your hair a name what would it be?
Have you ever tried hair shadowing on your locs?
No, I’ve never tried coloring my locs. I’d like color but I’m afraid I’d lose interest in maintaining it.
Sum up your natural hair journey in three words.
Any advice to the natural newbies?
Don’t model your loc journey after anyone else’s. Everyone’s hair is different. It will be a lesson in patience so be prepared and stick with it.
What was favorite compliment someone has ever given you on your hair?
While in Jamaica at Bob Marley’s mausoleum, a woman told me that I looked like I could be one of Bob’s girls. I love Bob Marley and it was already an enlightening experience just to be there. So I was flattered.
If you could only watch one natural hair vlogger on youtube who would it be? why?
Chescaleigh. I love watching her vids. She’s hilarious, conscious, and I love her styles.
