Intro­duce your­self!
L:
My name is Luna Angel. I live in Los Ange­les. I’m from North­ern Cali, but I rep Cali as a whole. My ini­tials are LA lol. I am a singer, song­writer and mod­el.

Why did you make the deci­sion to go nat­ur­al?
L:
I’ve had locks since I was a teenag­er. I am half Jamaican so it’s very much a part of our cul­ture, and all my fam­i­ly mem­bers have locks.

When and how did you tran­si­tion into nat­ur­al hair?
L:
I’ve always had nat­ur­al hair. Being raised by a mom with locks it was kin­da easy to be in that lifestyle of nat­ur­al hair and organ­ic hair prod­ucts. My mom start­ed my locks in twists. I had just before chopped off all my curly hair and decid­ed to grow it back in locks.

In what ways (if any) has going nat­ur­al affect­ed you?
L:
I didn’t real­ly like it when my mom combed my hair as a kid. Grow­ing locks was just easy and low main­te­nance.

How would you describe your hair?
L:
I have curly jew-fro hair lol. My dad is Jew­ish and my mom is Jamaican. My father had locks to his feet. My hair is some­what coarse, but using the right prod­ucts it becomes more man­age­able.

What is your reg­i­men?
L:
I used to use oil on my scalp, but it attracts dust. I use Sul­fur 8 Hair Lotion. For sham­poo I use Gio­van­ni Tea Tree Sham­poo and Gio­van­ni Hair Gel for styling. I also use a hair spritzer from my friends com­pa­ny Herb and Life. Sul­fur 8 on the scalp and hair spritzer from Herb and Life keeps my locks shiny.

For styling I love putting my locks in a pony­tail or up in a bun, but for every day that cre­ates a lot of ten­sion and pulling on the scalp, so I wear them down more often.

What’s the best/most effec­tive thing you do for your hair?
L:
Get­ting it washed once a month at a pro­fes­sion­al salon where they can real­ly get into the hair and deep clean the scalp.

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?

Love your locs… Mine are baby still, but I’m search­ing for a new prod­uct to retwist with so I don’t get too much prod­uct build up… Any ideas? I’ve tried aloe vera but it just didn’t impress me!

I love locs, but I will nev­er look at them the same way again after tak­ing mine down after many years. I was very dis­ci­plined about the care and atten­tion my locs received, includ­ing the sort of prod­ucts I used and avoid­ed. At the end of the day, locs — even incred­i­bly main­tained, clean ones like mine were — are full of lint, dust and prod­uct residue. I was shocked and dis­gust­ed! Addi­tion­al­ly, much of the length is dead, shed hair that oth­er­wise would have been lost in the course of nor­mal styling, sham­poo­ing, etc. For­tu­nate­ly, I still have about… Read more »

Good old sul­fur8. I was born 1 day ear­ly, my mother’s hair­dress­er can­celled her appoint­ment (she want­ed to look dope for the deliv­ery) so she put her all-time favorite sulfer8 on her scalp — she got a side-eye from the nurse for the smell but she still swears by it, Lol!

Beau­ti­ful locs! That side unfin­ished-fish­tail-braid and the shades of blonde at bot­tom are awe­some.

you look so amaz­ing!
