'Hubby loves my locs' Mane Matters with Adeola Olokodana

Hi Natural Beauties,

Today, it's all about locs on Mane matters. We bring to you Adeola

Can you tell us who you are and what you do?
I'm Adeola Olokodana and I work with a law firm.

What are your thoughts about natural hair?
My thoughts about natural hair is that it is one of the simple way of fashion and life.

Why did you decide to go natural?
I got tired of having my hair relaxed because relaxing of hair, plaiting and fixing has always been painful and stressful.
What made you decide dreadlocks?
I actually tried the faux locs and loved it, carried it for a year.

How long have you had the dreads? 
I have been on locs for 2 years now
How has the experience been like?
My experience has been good with no regrets

What was/is your biggest fear about dreadlocks?
My fear was how my hubby and in-laws would react, instead my hubby embraced and loved it because I started from the scratch.
Do you have a regimen you stick to? What is it like?
I do the tea rinse and flat beer rinse. I spirtz daily with water and oils. Recently just added Henna and Hibiscus mixing.

Do you think you are in it for the long haul or is it just a phase?
Long haul 

There are people that definitely have negative comments about you hair, how do you deal with that?
I don't give room or entertain negative comments.

What's your must have product and accessory?
Shea butter and oils( Evoo, JBCO, and Jojoba oil)

What's most challenging for you in taking care of/keeping the dreads?
No challenge because I have my loctician who maintains my locs for me.
What advice do you have for anyone planning to grow dreadlocks? 
They should be patient, never compare their locs journey with anyone and enjoy every phase of their locs journey.

  1. So cute. Funny enough, my husband said he would really love it if I loc'd my hair, but it's just seems too permanent of a change to me.

  2. It's a great and distinctive look!

  3. I love her hair. This is what locs should look like.

  4. good for her
    much like life, you have to do what works for you and don't give air or room for others and their negative feedback because at the end of the day only you live your life.
