5 Products To NEVER Use On Locs

The common mistakes that are made with locs include: improper partings, weak foundations, poor product choices, and too much manipulation. Of these common mistakes, poor product choices are the most detrimental because they can lead to scalp issues, build-up, breakage,  and thinning of locs. Did you know that product mistakes made in the beginning or early stages of your loc journey can take years to manifest into devastating problems, some of which require the damage to be cut out.Think about all those years of growth thrown away. Literally.

My goal is to help you keep your locs strong , long , healthly and flourishing

Cardi B Gets Her Very Own Tom Ford Lipstick Shade

Cardi B winning streak continues

There’s famous, then there’s lipstick-named-after-you famous, and Cardi B is official latter now.

Amidst a packed (and insane) New York Fashion Week, her latest buzzy moment comes by way of Tom Ford Beauty, which just revealed a lipstick shade inspired by the rapper herself.

The beauty brand unveiled the latest Lips & Boys collection backstage at its Spring/Summer 2019 show (where Cardi sat front row). As usual, the lipsticks are named after people—and Tom Ford Beauty announced a cobalt blue shade named “Cardi” on Instagram. It’s fittingly a shade made for risk-takers and bold beauty lovers.

Ledisi Chopped OFF Her Signature Locs

R&B force to be reckoned with Ledisi is the latest celeb to chop off her hair. The beauty recently traded in her waist length locs for a short, tapered fade and I just can’t deal with the change lol

While she’s rocked her signature locs, she’s never shied away from avant-garde looks — including impeccable updos, playing with color and even rocking shaved sides.  Her newest look, however, is still so new I had to look twice.

She quietly revealed the new look in Instagram where she talks about “the importance of embracing the process when transitioning into new energy. Also, being fearless when walking away from the old and into the new.”

Imma be honest I lowkey missed it as Ledisi continued to share pics of her old loc’d look. However, days later the newlywed gave us an other glimpse of the look with husband Ron Young kissing her cropped cut, before finally sharing a fire mini shoot showing off a clear view of her big chop
