Mystery Solved… After a Month, I Finally Found the Gorgeous Kimlayn — My LocSpiration

A month ago, I abruptly gave in to the decision to loc my hair… and this is why —


Out of all my 3 years of being a natural head, I’ve NEVER had a hairspiration. Meaning, I never found that one model, celebrity, or random person that I just wanted my hair to reflect, OR loved their hair so much that I envied them… eh, or something like that? I’d been thinking about loc’ing my hair for some time. Maybe for about 6 months, but never acted on it. So one day, (a month ago), I ran across the most gorgeous woman ever with the most gorgeous locs ever… and that’s when I said,

“Yep, I’m going to loc my hair.”


The whole mystery behind it is: that was only 1 single picture of this woman and her locs. I looked, I searched all over… Let me tell you, I even google imaged (the Catfish way) of the picture that I had — to somehow, someway, discover this woman’s name and follow her journey. I wanted to know all about her hair and her process, and whatever else. But no luck.


Until today! I just so happen to discover her on instagram via a dreadlock page (culturedlocs)… & her name is Kimlayn — and yes, she does indeed have the most gorgeous hair, the most gorgeous locs I’ve ever seen. And she followed me & thanked me for featuring her on my instagram page too:)

Now, I’m not saying that my hair is going to turn out just like hers. No… not saying that. As stated in a previous hair post, all hair is different. ALL hair. But she has inspired me to move forward in my greatest hair journey and I don’t plan on turning back.

Okay, okay… I do secretly hope that my hair will turn out similar to hers, so we’ll see. Keep following my journey! We’re in month 2.
