Hey y’all! I am most known as B (or Brittany-three syllables, yes, I’m fancy LOL!), the editor over at Clumps of Mascara. I decided to start this hair blog a few weeks before I got my locs installed. The online natural hair community was a huge motivator for me when I first went natural in 2005. And since then I’ve had a passion for natural hair. While Loc Rocker tracks my journey into loc’dom, it is also a blog that discusses the issues, emotions and lifestyles regarding natural hair. I also love featuring fellow naturals, womanprenuers, brands, companies, art, products, music and articles/photos surrounding natural hair. Because, whether you agree or not, Black hair is quite relevant these days and I find it fascinating.
NOTE: Please do not assume that my pride in natural hair means that I am anti other hairstyles and textures. I have no problem with perms and weaves. However, I have made a personal decision to not use them. Ever. Again. Just as you prefer to wear your hair a certain way, I prefer to rock the natural and rock it proudly. Good hair is healthy hair. Period.
And also, I am not a professional. Nor do I consider myself a natural hair guru. I simply like it, rock it and have decided to blog about it. Bam. That’s it, chief.
