Discover the FREEDOM of Bradelocz!
Honestly, could you ever see yourself in locs?
I know I sure couldn’t. Shoot, I wouldn’t have imagined myself with natural hair, period, let alone locs.
Yet, here I am with almost 20 years under my belt and counting!
Before I “removed the kinks from my brain” as Marcus Garvey urged, my mind was HIGHLY-infused in the viewpoint, “‘Nappy’ hair is NOT it.“
It didn’t matter that (at times) my hair was chewy, crunchy, and barely made it past the top of my shoulder blades… Not relaxing and using excessive heat on my hair was not an option.
Sometime around the mid-to-late 90’s, I was reading through a hair magazine and came across an ad that intrigued me.
There was this sistah with a crown of beautiful, curly-styled hair flowing down to her WAIST!
But there was something a lil’ “different” about her hair. It wasn’t relaxed or pressed. It kinda looked like tiny braids. Naw, these weren’t braids. They were itty bitty… ‘dreadlocks‘?
Now mind you, I was still of the “straight is better” mentality, so I wasn’t all too certain if I was liking what I saw. I mean, I kinda did… but I kinda didn’t, if that makes sense.
Anyway, despite the fact they were locs, they were styled in a way I would’ve worn my relaxed hair. This surprised me because I had never seen locs that were:
a.) that small, and…
b.) styled in such a way where you almost couldn’t tell what they were
Perfect for that straight hair mindset I was in, right?
So, I sent off for more information. Once it arrived, I looked over the brochure repeatedly, teetering back and forth on how I felt about them.
A huge part of me was diggin’ ’em, but that “other” part of my brain was still struggling with the fact that they’re locs. But the more I looked at the pictures, the more I began to fall in love with them.
Unfortunately, the cost was way out of my budget at the time.
*sigh* Oh well.
Five or so years later, I got fed UP!
I’m standing in the bathroom mirror, totally disgusted with my hair.
It had been doing well, but I ended up giving myself a touch up and f****d. it. up.
It was over-processed and just… busted. I wanted to cry. Actually, if my memory serves me correctly, I DID cry.
How in the hell can a former hair stylist’s hair look like this? What’s WRONG with me? Why can’t get and KEEP this hair right?
And at that moment, I made a decision that was about to change my life forever.
After my liberating big chop, I tried wearing it natural for the first few months or so, but after a while, I started thinking about those tiny locs again.
I was active on a well-known natural hair forum where I got exposed to all kinds of beautiful natural styles. But in the midst of the twists, twist-outs, and wash-n-go styles, it was those dangblasted LOCS that kept calling out to me.
Knowing full well my budget wouldn’t allow for them, even MORE so during that time in my life, I had to find another way.
Most of the women I knew who were locked, started with twists or coils. And I almost went that route until someone mentioned starting with small braids.
“Small braids, huh? Those other ones kinda looked like braids. Hmm…” 🤔
There was one young lady in particular who messaged back and forth with me about the time she started her locs with small braids and palm rolled the roots for maintenance.
And when she told me how closely they resembled the ones I fell in love with, my excitement grew and grew until I thought I was gonna bust wide open!
Right then and there I decided, “That’s it! I’m DOIN’ this!” and stayed up into the wee hours, braiding tiny little braids into my hair until my fingers & arms felt like they were gonna fall off.
Though overly-excited, I got a little sleep and picked it right back up the next day. The final result had me in awe… I LOVED them!
I got SO many compliments, and folks kept asking if I had gotten ‘the more costly ones’ installed.
“Nope! I did ’em myself with small braids.“, I proudly proclaimed.
After a month or so, my roots started growing a mini-fro. I tried palm-rolling them like sis said, but I just wasn’t feelin’ it. But what else could I do?
Then I remembered someone mentioning using a latch hook to tighten them, but they never said HOW to do it. I searched and searched on Internet Explorer (this was LONG before Google, hunny) and came up empty.
So, I grabbed my beauty school mannequin head and started experimenting.
After many failed attempts, I FINALLY figured out a way to do it, and Bradelocz™: The Permanent Braids were born.
And now, years later – MY hair is healthy, natural, and down to MY waist!
Because this was such a new experience for me, I decided to document my journey, every single month, for an entire year. In addition, I was also sharing my pics and progress in the forum group.
The ladies showered me in compliments and had all kinds of questions!
That’s when I decided to put all the information into a digestible format…
What started out as a personal journal of my experiences turned into a DIY manual, complete with:
- Answers to commonly-asked questions
- Preparation & planning tips
- Sizing Chart & Guidelines
- Installation instructions
- Care and maintenance
- Things to expect while locking
- And don’t forget my personal, month-to-month Bradelocking journal
where you’ll get to see my hair in its different phases of growth over the course of one year and read about my experience
Many have invested in this guide, had great success starting their own beautiful Bradelocz™, and have given rave reviews.
But are Bradelocz™ gonna be right for YOU?
In case you hadn’t figured it out (which I’m sure you have), Bradelocz™ are locs started with small braids, and maintained with a latch hook, interlocking technique.
I’m not sure exactly where you are in the decision-making process, but if you arrived here, I’m assuming you’re at least contemplating locking your hair with braids.
And I’m sure you have some questions such as:
Is it a good idea to start locs with braids?
Can you use extensions when starting Bradelocz™?
Could they be used to start locs on naturally-straight hair?
Are Bradelocz™ professional enough for the workplace?
