Hairstory - Afro to Locs

Hi Everyone,

My journey started in 2004, when I chopped off all my hair and grew my very own chemical-free, stubborn and nappy Afro! I researched locking methods in the meantime, and discovered sisterlocks - but I couldn't get them since there were no certified consultants anywhere in South Africa (nor the whole continent, at least back then).

I settled for traditional locks in 2007 which I kept for almost 3 years. I finally have gerrylocks since 2010, and I can honestly say I love the versatility of microlocks. I maintain my own hair, and you can view my trials, errors & triumphs at
