I have been loc’d for about 5 years now

What do you do for l­oc maintenance?

I’ve stopped re-twisting my hair after 2 and a half years of loc growth, and thus my maintenance regime is quite simple which consists of washing with shampoo, then drying, and moisturizing with Jamaican caster oil.

Jamaican caster oil is my favorite product.

An advice i would give to someone interested in locs is, wear your locs, don’t let your locs wear you.

Random Question: What’s the best and worse thing about being a music artist?

The best thing about being a music artiste in my opinion is having the opportunity to reach out to or communicate with so many people all over the world. On the flip side, the worst thing about being a music artiste in my opinion is not having the available resources needed to bring your visions to reality.
