Miss Angella founded House of Locs 23 years ago in 2000 when she noticed a lack of natural hair care, specifically loc maintenance. She has always had a passion for hair care since she was a child growing up in Jamaica. Soon, playing with the curiosity of her hair, she did the hair of friends, and then finally made a living from it. As an expert in the hair care field with over 30 years experience, she has earned the trust of many.
Locs are more than just a symbolic statement in regard to the physical appearance. Locs or otherwise known as dreadlocks have been traced back to ancient civilization as far as 500 BCE with connections to Egypt, Ethiopia & Kenya. Dreadlocks have been worn continuously by people of color in Africa, Asia, and the Americas from ancient times until the Seventies. In part, this was due to the success of Jamaican reggae artist Bob Marley after he converted to Rastafarianism. Today locs more based on a fashion aspect in both men and women, & it is a central aspect of their appearance, but is its purpose deeper than that? Hair does not only represent self, symbolizing personal style and freedom of expression, but it can also provide insight into general health. Our hair is a vital part of our nervous system as they are closely connected, and can act as antennas to receive signals or information from our surroundings. It is the real reason why that hair on the back of our neck stands up when we sense something paranormal or spiritually dark.
It speaks to our personalities, our communities, and our histories. Various styles of hair can indicate different rites of passage in some societies, while in others they are symbols of spiritual connection.
starting your locs journey can be tedious if you don't have the correct information for your hair type. We take pride in giving you the best advice for your desired look and hairtype to maintain healthy locs.
