Miracles Never Cease…


I’m back!  All is well, so much has transpired since I last blogged. Locs of Luv is doing great! We have two Certified Sisterlocks Consultants on board and one Sisterlocks Trainee in the house.  Our Sisterlocks trainee, Rachel Thomas, my daughter took the Sisterlocks training two years ago, currently she has several clients and has completed her first solo establishment of Sisterlocks. Rachel is currently being mentored at Locs of Luv.  If you or  know of anyone that would like to start their Sisterlocks journey please consider giving Rachel the opportunity. You can see her work on her FB page Locs 2 Luv.  As this year quickly draws to a close I’m thankful for having been afforded the opportunity to support so many of you with your respective hair journeys. I wish you all a safe and happy holiday.

Warmest Regards,

Cathy D. Thomas

Protect your Locks…


With colder temperatures we’re inclined to wear shawls sweaters and hats to keep warm. Be mindful of winter wear that sheds exessively, many of the fibers can become embedded in the locks. Protect your locks by wearing satin lined caps or scarves with a low pile (yarn count). Lilla Rose hair jewelry also helps keep our locks up and safe from winter wear that has looser fibers. Stay warm.

Tied Loc Styles


Two ties, three ties we all scream for ties. These beautiful “Tied Loc Styles are held in place with Lilla Rose hair jewelry. An XL flexi is used for both. The Flexis come in seven different sizes ranging from mini to mega. They don’t cut into the hair or cause undo tension, you can wear them all day…pinky promise! http://www.lillarose.biz/cathythomas

Keep It Simple Styles…By Cathy


Keeping styles simple after retightenings are key in not compromising your locks or your fragile hairline. After you’ve had your locks retightened the last thing you want to experience is a style where you can’t smile for fear of your locks snapping at the roots.  Actually, we should be mindful of the tension on our locks at all times. Our hairline and locks are compromised when we repetitively wear styles where the locks are unduly stressed. A couple of weeks after your retighten when your locks have loosened up some, more elaborate styles can be experienced.  Bobbi Pins with smooth ends as well as hair jewelry with smooth edges complement our locked hairstyles. Part with your hair jewelry that has sharp edges and teeth that can weaken your locks over time. Keep in mind your stylist can’t read your mind when she’s styling your hair, be sure to let her know if the style is too tight or if bobby pins or hair jewelry is causing you discomfort. Be kind, gentle and loving towards your locks…K.I.S.S. by Cathy

Brotherlocks Rocks!


Brotherlocks work for this soon to be high school graduate. This young man will soon be heading off to college with his new locks,  they were established in December of 2016. His hair virtually locked while I was establishing his Brotherlocks, this is a plus for this active young man. The settling in period will be very quick. The settling in period is the time frame in which special care is given to maintaining one’s locks. The primary difference between Sisterlocks and Brotherlocks is the size. The size of Sisterlocks allow for greater styling versatility. Because of the size of the Brotherlocks this client can wait longer between  retightening. This client opted for locking only the top…Love the look!
