Her Hairstory

I’m Keisha Charmaine. I was raised in Brooklyn, NY and I’ve recently earned a bachelors degree from UAlbany, “U-A! U-Know!” I’ve always wanted to have locs and I thought college was the best time for me to begin that journey. I wore box braids my entire freshman year to grow out my relaxed hair. The day after I moved off campus for summer break is the day I started my locs.

I’ve played around with different colors and I’ve tried different styles but at the end of the day, I’m happy with my hair in a high sloppy bun. At first I got a lot of negative feedback. “Your hair was so long, how could you cut it off?” “I don’t like girls with locs!” “You’re not going to keep those things.”

I got a lot of hate but even more love from those that mattered most like my mom, brother and best friends. I’ve played around with products but i learned what works best on my hair.

I’m no product junkie; products I use are limited to herbal essence shampoo and conditioner, eco styler gel and all natural oils (olive oil, coconut oil, peppermint oil etc.) We loc-wearers should limit our product usage because it often becomes difficult to wash all the products out and icky build-up can accumulate.

The journey helped me become more comfortable in my own skin. I became even more confident. I’ve recently had my 3rd lociversary and I know that allowing my hair to lock into its natural state was the best decision I’ve ever made regarding my hair.

I share my journey and great hair tips on my youtube channel, youtube.com/OverXposedKC91

Forever Asia: Thank you very much for sharing your loc journey! Love the colors! An ex of mine used to have locs for like 5 years and they ended up reaching mid back length. Unfortunately I became the care taker for those locs so it ended up being like I had em lol, I was responsible for twisting and keeping them fresh just because I did it “better” than he did lol so I understand the patience, time, and care required to maintain them, its a lot harder than it looks o_o.

Thanks again!
