Locks Loops/Soft Spikes


 Lock Loops and Soft Spikes curlers are great styling tools, the results are beautiful, the curlers are quite similar with one notable exception, the Lock Loops have ridges that hold the curler in place. To use I dampen my hair slightly with water, roll the hair onto the curlers and let dry. For tighter curls use smaller amounts of hair and leave the curlers in longer. Lock Loops and Soft Spikes work well with short to medium length hair.

Be a “Diva” about your health as well as your hair…


Many of us are divas about our hair but not our health. As a Sisterlocks consultant many of my clients leave with a minimum of two appointments on my books. The dates are entered into our calendars and alarms are set to make sure they’re not missed. Very seldom are they missed. At Locs of Luv emphasis is placed on providing an environment where it’s relaxed and stress free. We purposely have no TV. How intentional are you as it relates to setting aside your chill time? If you have a favorite place to relax please share in the comment section below. Let’s be divas about our health as well as our hair. Breathe and relax you can do this, your health depends on it.

Locs & Lilla Rose


I discovered Lilla Rose hair jewelry many years back. As a wearer of Sisterlocks I was always on the lookout for hair accessories that were locs friendly. While at a local street fair I discovered the perfect accessory for my hair, the flexi clip. I immediately fell in love with the flexi hair clip. Not only was the clip beautiful but it was also very comfortable. The clip is made using piano wire which allows for ease in placement and removal. Piano wire is very flexible which allows for movement to accommodate various densities of hair   The pin is attached so there’s no chance of loosing it. The amazing flexi comes in seven different sizes, mini to mega.. The mega flexi was created specifically for large amounts of hair. Big locs…No worries we’ve got you covered. In addition to the flexi there are hair bands, sticks, bobbies, u-pins and more. Lilla Rose hair accessories work! Treat yourself to Lilla Rose today💜🌷

KISS Keep It Simple Styles


As a wearer of Sisterlocks I’ve found over the years that less is best when styling my hair.  As a Sisterlocks consultant I encourage my clients to do the same. Sisterlocks is a natural hair care system that allows you to experience the freedom of your natural hair in all it’s glory with a minimum amount of maintenance. Note, I didn’t say maintenance free but in comparison to other styles it’s about as maintenance free as you’ll get.  My go to style is the full ponytail with twists on both sides.  I normally secure it with Lilla Rose hair accessories. I’ve found this line to be comfortable, beautiful and easy on the locks. The smooth edges don’t cut into the locks and because the flexi is made from piano wire it’s extremely flexible and adjustable. Our flexis come in seven different sizes ranging from mini to mega and works well in most hair types. Remember to keep it simple ladies.

Wrap It Wednesday


53263089_2074039522709557_2951021593280643072_oToday was “Wrap It Wednesday!” Head wraps are perfect when it’s cold out, having a not so great hair day or if you just want to get in touch with your “roots.” Where did head wraps originate? Let’s ask google… “As a form of apparel in Zimbabwe, the head-wrap has been exclusive to women of African descent. The head-wrap originated in sub-Saharan Africa, and serves similar functions for African and African American women.” Elliot Siamonga

It’s a wrap! Goodnight!
