I first met Leandra in one of my classes in college. I thought she was the funny, sassy Caribbean girl and she thought I was too quiet! 2 years later our friendship has blossomed along with Leandra’s new baby locs.
After having a relaxer since the age of 6, Leandra decided after battling years of damage, breakage, and lack of money to go to a stylist she began the transition process.
Leandra transitioned for a year wearing Kinky Twists to give her an idea on whether locs was a right fit for her personality and face. Leandra is overcoming the challenge of avoiding people’s opinion of her short locs and focus her attention on her hair goals of thicker, shoulder length locs.
Since completing her Big Chop in early 2010 Leandra has used gel and Carol’s Daughters products to keep her locs moisturized and styled.
Leandra has come a long way from her relaxer days when she even had her hair turned green while trying to dye it blonde! Now she is a newly natural loc’d beauty.
