Where do you live?
S:
I am originally from Uganda. I moved to Canada in 1991. I live in Calgary, AB. I’m a plus-size model, university student and community organizer.

Why did you go natural?
S:
In 2007 a hairstylist left relaxer in my hair for too long. Some areas of my scalp were burnt and my hair began to break. I started researching natural hairstyles in 2008. I became a member of the BGLH online community, natural hair blogs and watched lots of inspirational hair videos on YouTube. I think all natural hairstyles are beautiful. I have locked hair and find it easier for me to manage.

When I started wearing locks someone said to me, “You look more African with this hairstyle”. I found their comment very interesting… I am proud to be an African and regardless of how I choose to wear my hair my roots will always remain the same. I’m happy with my decision to get locks and to finally have healthy hair again.

What’s your regimen?
S:
I spritz my locks everyday with my homemade mix of water and peppermint oil. My locks get thirsty and require lots of water. I wash and braid my locks (damp) before bed once a week. I don’t like to use too many products in my hair. I use oil treatments and leave in conditioners every two weeks. I always wrap my locks before going to bed. I use Sisterlocks (shampoo) and Creme of Nature (conditioner) products. They work well for my hair. These products also smell very lovely…hehe.

What mistakes have you made that you’ve learned from?
S:
I’m still learning more about my hair. I once made the mistake of showering late and sleeping with wet locks. Slightly damp hair is ok… it will dry during the night. I don’t recommend sleeping with wet hair unless one wants a cold, clammy and wet pillow haha. Also, my hairstylist told me that when hair is wet it becomes fragile so it breaks easily.

What’s the best/most effective thing you do for your hair?
S:
I never blow-dry my locks. I always air dry. That’s the best method that works for me. Blow-drying applies too much heat to ones hair and takes away moisture. Lastly, I cover my hair when I’m at home to help keep my locks clean and lint-free.

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?

Those look like lock extensions. Sorry! I have locks and know dozens of people with them. I have installed lock extensions as well. These are not locks that have grown from her scalp!

As a locker, I am always excited to see fellow locked heads. I think the sister pictured is stunning. However, I wonder about “Nah’s” comment. Upon reading it, I looked at the second photo very closely and then took into consideration that she didn’t start her locks until 2008 (right?). At the roots, they do appear to be extensions, and that much length in that time frame, especially with shrinkage of locks early in the process, is a bit atypical. That said, if those are actually extensions, some disclosure of that would not take away her beauty, but would be… Read more »
