Great news and another great loc shampoo


I made it. Here I am on graduation day yesterday with (from left to right) Dad Clinton, son Rowan, me, husband Walter, Mom Joyce and Aunt Daphne.

Screen Shot 2014-06-15 at 2.31.42 AMThis is going to be a short post, as I just graduated yesterday from DePaul University with my second masters: a Master of Arts in Educating Adults. I made it! And I will use this degree, not only as a college professor on my day job, but in educating others about how to care for and maintain beautiful locs, and how to show pride in wearing them.

A few weeks ago, I did a poll on loc shampoos and on which brand you use. I will report back on my findings soon, but in the meantime, I will tell you about another great shampoo find: African Black Soap.

The brand I used was RA Cosmetics 100% Black Soap. It is a liquid soap with its ingredients listed as honey (as its first ingredient), shea butter, osun, cocoa pod powder, plantain peel powder, palm kernel oil, coconut oil, water, and aloe vera. The soap lathered quickly, moisturized my locs very well, and rinsed easily. Like liquid castile soap, it is touted as a body care soap. However, as a shampoo, it moisturizes as it cleanses. It has a light texture, leaving the possibility for buildup at a minimum.

African Black Soap is a great loc shampoo. It is all natural, and it gentle enough for cleansing without drying. It is also inexpensive. Keep it in mind when you look for a shampoo.

As for my degree, I will continue to look for ways to educate, elevate, and illuminate, whether it’s locs, design, or on how to make the world a better place for all.
