This Is HOW I Got My LOCS to Grow FAST

So here I am 3 years of locs ( where did time go?). My locs are falling down my back and getting longer by the style and I’m holding my head a bit higher than the year before. I’m learning so much about myself on the daily and relishing in each new experience that comes my way. While I can’t wait to see where my locs fall next year, surprisingly, I’ve been thinking of wearing less styles this year. I’ve been feeling so light and carefree that I want my locs to feel the same. So we’ll see. I’m learning that life is full of surprises. xoxo

ELLE’s September issue, the highly anticipated annual bible of beauty and fashion, features black models in a tribute to black hair.

The “Natural Anthem” beauty shoot showcases six women of color rocking a collection of natural styles including afro puffs, sculpted baby hair and braids. The six models hail from Kenya, Burundi, and Canada. One of them was even discovered at a Beyonce concert in Toronto. In the article the models discuss what it was like being a part of the shoot, favorite hair care products, their day-to-day makeup routines, the relationships they have with their hair and their own treasured beauty icons.

The magazine’s beauty director, Vanessa Craft posted the following to her Instagram account:

“I’ve never been in a photo shoot where it’s all black people. Usually there is one black person and seven Caucasian women. We all come from different backgrounds and we can share stories together. And I kind of feel at peace because at other shoots, nobody would talk to each other,” Aliisa says.

“My sister is a hairdresser. I started with braids. My mom wouldn’t let me wear a weave because she said it would be too grown-up for me. Grade 5 graduation was the only time I could wear one; it was a clip-on ponytail. In Grade 8, I got to wear a long weave. I loved it! I would get it sewn in. But I would have to straighten it and comb it out, or brush it out. In high school, I started wearing all natural. [Wearing a weave] is too much time. You have to maintain it,” she added.
