Who is your loctician?
I am my own loctician.
What is your regimen for your locs?
The only thing that comes close to a regimen is that I make an effort to cover my locs when I sleep or not in public. However, when I twist my hair I twist from root then I palm roll. It generally take me at least 4 hours.
Have your locs ever hindered you professionally?
Since I’m an artist, my locs have not hindered me in anyway…my profession is free
