- Name: Deidre Mayers
- Age: 31
- I’ve had natural hair from 2000 and locks from 2007
- I tried straighten hair for a change but the chemicals didn’t agree with me so I opted to go back natural
- Just decided to cut off the straighten ends and let the hair catch back itself. I decided to locks my hair just for a change to something different, getting my hair plait became too much of a chore.
- It was a drastic change but as my hair became longer it was easier to manage (prior to locking my hair). The transition to locks wasn’t easy at the beginning and I wanted to cut it so many times because of the “fuzziness” it has to go through prior to forming into full locks.
- I wash my hair every two/ three weeks, dry it, Palm roll and style it.
- I don’t have any favourite products. I mainly use olive oil and other oils to keep the roots nurtured.
- We have plenty hair stores in Barbados so it isn’t difficult to get products to do my hair.
- I love to do my hair in the bob, not sure what the correct name for that style is at the moment
- A good hair day is when my hair is styled and fresh, a bad hair day is when my hair needs doing but I just don’t have the energy to do it at that point so it would be brushed and placed in one until I get to wash it and style it. One frustrating feature about my hair is that it gets really fuzzy at the root after a week/ week and a half in a style, so I have to be sure to tie it down and keep it oiled.
- I don’t have any hair crushes
- To employees and teachers, your hair doesn’t define who you are, embrace your ethnicity and understand this will always be apart of our ancestry.
- (Describing her hair in one phrase, this locs Queen said,) My crowning glory – I love how it’s transformed over the years from being short and nappy to long and beautiful.
- The only thing I’ll look to do is give it a colour, but not sure what colour or when I’ll do it. G
Good Luck Deidre as you continue to sustain strength, health and growth! Beautiful locs.
