My brother gets his locs done! + UK Salon review

Konata locs vlog

Hey!

 

So I am not the only one in my family that wears their hair in its natural state.  As a matter of fact, I was the last one to the party.  My mother always wore her hair in a short fro/buzz cut.  So did my dad.  So I never grew up in a house where there was any shame in wearing kinky hair.  Not having “good” hair was NEVER a thing for us.  All of it was good.  We are proud.  All three of my siblings have had or have locs.  I have yet to try it out, but I have been thinking of it for a number of years, but I am satisfied with my loose natural…for now…

My brother, Konata, has had his locs for about 10 years now and decided to film himself getting his locs retwisted at his favourite natural hair salon in London, Morris Roots.

I know a lot or most of the focus in the natural hair movement is on women, but we can’t forget that there are a lot of guys out there too, making black hair more visible and acceptable to both ourselves and others.

Allyuh, where we limin’???

Limin’, a Trinbagonian term for having fun, hanging out!  With good drinks and cutters (snacks)! Trinis will lime anytime, anywhere, especially after work on Fridays, as the unofficial kickoff to the weekend!  And this is a perfect time to launch my new series,“Whey de lime” Fridays!  I’ll be talking about things that I am looking forward too for the weekend, or things that I am loving or that inspire me.

For this inaugural episode, I am super pumped about my brother Konata’s new single, This Is The Life!!  This is real Island vibes, a chill Caribbean calypso song, that reminds me of home.  And I am proud!

Check it out!!
