Loc Love Week: Audrey Francis

LOC LOVE WEEK is coming to a close and we can honestly say that we've enjoyed every interview and every loc journey! You all have been awesome. Stay tuned in to our instagram (@notoriousstylez) for who we'll be highlighted next month!! 
Now for our LOC LOVE FACT of the night!!

 "An Oklahoma charter school has changed its dress code after inciting criticism for telling a 7-year-old Tiana Parker that her dreadlocks violated the school’s policy. 

Tiana Parker and her parents said she was summoned last month to the administrator’s office at the Deborah Brown Community School in Tulsa and told her that her hairstyle was against school policy. Her parents later decided to move Tiana to another school. But Monday night, the school board voted to change its policy that had banned dreadlocks, afros and other hairstyles."

Now for tonight's feature!!!

Why and when you decided to go natural.
September 2006
Ive always admired the natural look, but my ultimate goal was sisterlocs.

What sparked you to loc your hair. 
Being an athlete, sisterlocs was a permanent solution to low-maintenance haircare, especially after basketball games & workouts.

Have your locs ever been the cause for a debate or discussion amongst peers and or coworkers. 
Since I started this loc journey, Ive had so many inquiries about the process of going natural, the time it takes, what kind of hair or yarn is added, easy maintenance, etc.
I went to sign papers to enlist in the military but was then told I would have to chop my dreads off. I chucked the deuces, LOL!

What advice do you have for anyone thinking of getting locs and that are on the fence about it. 
Think long and hard.. then longer and harder.. then long and hard so more. Sisterlocs are permanent, so think long and hard. Find a legit loctician!
Best decision I've made thus far.
