See How I Styled My Dirty Locs

Most people who wear wear locs like the fresh look of a retwist, but if done too often it can start to create breakage and thinning at the root. Look around for new, attractive, hairstyles that you can tryout to stay in love with your hair in between retwists—it’s the perfect time to experiment with your look. 

I havent been to the salon since May , but I wash my locs every 6/8 weeks at home. Ive just been a little lazy 😯😯😯

 
No matter what you heard, cleansing is a part of any healthy hair care routine.

Peace. As I adapt to the many stages of my locs , I knew I was bound to make a few changes in my maintenance routine. I’ve been on my loc journey for three years and I’ve made a LOT of changes here and there. Im caring for it more now than ever before and I LOVE the untwisted look.

Okay, I did my first ever real braid and it was on camera. The whole process and the results of that style are below. To maintain this look I pull eveything into a ponytail while the braid is still in and cover my locs with a scarf.

Kelis Share Her Secrets On Fame “Being Famous Never Validated Me!”

Since the moment she arrived on the scene, Kelis has done things her own way. A beauty chameleon and genre-bending musical talent, the singer has always been in a league of her own.

For October, Kelis graces the cover of ESSENCE’s Global Beauty Issue where she gets candid about taking a break from the spotlight and working at her own pace.

“One of the biggest things I reiterate is self-care,” the singer told ESSENCE.

Fame can be a tricky beast for celebrities, especially in an age where social media is king and access to their private lives can result in less than pleasing tabloid stories. It’s no wonder, then, that stars like Kelis choose to keep certain parts of their lives private.

“Anyone who knows me knows I can take fame or leave it,” Kelis said. “I can walk away from all of this and never look back. Being famous has never validated me—ever. I’ve never cared if people liked me or didn’t like me. Either way, I’m cool.”

Still, part of Kelis’ self-care was taking a much needed break from the music industry’s glaring spotlight. The singer said that she knew exactly what she needed to do in order to maintain her peace.

The 39-year-old mother of two knew that in order to be truly happy, she had to grow into the powerhouse she’s become. “The only way you are really ever going to be truly content is if you are constantly evolving,” she said.

Kelis talks fame and so much more in the Global Beauty Issue, on newsstands September NOW.
