The Truth About My Faux-Locs

For 6 weeks I had my hair in faux locs - a protective style that creates the illusion of real dread locs using extensions twisted around your own hair. The response was fantastic; my family, friends, colleagues AND students all seemed to love them, and I LOVED the versatility of having long hair. But what was it really like carrying 9 bags (no exaggeration) of extra hair on my head? Would I recommend it? And most importantly, would I ever get them again? Read on to find out the truth about faux locs.

Ella Eyre: PLEASE show your natural hair!

  Ella Eyre - the London starlet with a big voice and even bigger hair... or is it? Her hair is adored by millions, even provoking my friend with naturally straight hair to say she wanted to get a perm to 'look like Ella Eyre' just the other day. On the other end of the spectrum, her beautiful loose bouncy curls have helped to encourage those with naturally curly hair to ditch the straighteners and/or the dreaded chemical relaxer (insert horror movie scream). However, would the world's love of her hair be as strong if they saw it in it's natural texture? And what are the implications of the world only being shown an altered version of her natural hair? Read on to find out why I am asking Miss Eyre to PLEASE show off her natural hair.
