We have a new Health Section - "Health News That You Can Use". As you know, health and hair are closely related. Sometimes hair loss and hair thinning is a result of a lack of nutrients. But, having good health is essential not just for our hair, but for life itself! It's hard to have nice hair when you're half dead. It's time to be healthy AND have healthy hair. Be sure and check out the Health Section of the website.
We have an awesome Registered Nurse, Tiffany, that will share with us some down to earth ways to enjoy a healthy lifestyle!
We have some new additions to this site that are coming real soon:
PRODUCTS: We will be adding products to the Products page that will not only include hair stuff, but other interesting items as well!
FORUM: Soon we will be adding a new forum to the site.
HEALTH: A subject that effects everyone, we will have a lively health section that will include "health news that you can use". As we know, overall health greatly effects the health of your hair.

Wow, so much has taken place since I began locking in 2002 and began this website in 2003. Life has continued to happen. I started this website because I love to teach and have learned so much about locs. Before I started my loc journey, I researched, and researched. I knew I wanted to start my locs, but I just wanted to know more about the whole hair process. After my sister locked her hair, I was hooked, but it took me some years before I actually locked my hair.
I started off as many new loc wearers do, very particular about my locs. I was babying them (retwisting gently, covering my head every night, etc). One day my sister, who had the most beautiful locs I had ever seen, told me that the great thing about locs was that she didn’t have to do a lot to her hair. “What, you don’t check for lint every night” I asked. She looked at me like I was crazy, then burst out into laughter. Well, without saying anything I started to understand that I was really doing more than I needed to do with my locs.
There’s nothing wrong with taking great care of your locs, but honestly everyone, I was going a bit too far. I’m sure you would laugh if I told you all of the unnecessary stuff I was doing. (smile) I’ve been locked for nine years now and looking back at myself, I’m laughing too.
The point is, we should enjoy our hair, not be controlled by it. It’s a wonderful style and it has freed us from chemical relaxers. Since we are free, we should not go back into bondage by being enslaved to our hair care regime.
Hello, I'm Susan of Inspired Locs. I started locking my hair after I saw how beautiful my sister's locs were. She looked distinct. So, I was inspired to loc my hair also and to stop using chemical relaxers in my hair. This was in September of 2002.
