The Revival: My Dreadlock Journey

Rate Article

In the hustle & bustle of fighting the power, running Black Westchester, doing People Before Politics radio show, doing interviews, covering events etc., it’s easy to be so busy you allow the little things to slip. Like many business owners it’s easy to not find time to properly maintain your locs or get your hair done as often as it should be. One of those things you know you need to do but somehow never seem to find the time. Then the everyday struggles of life take priority. But as long as you got enough hats and headwraps to cover it, cause your always on the go, it’s all good for the time being.
Bad thing about neglecting your locs is that it can lead to thinning and hair loss. So when you do make the time to actually get it done, you can’t just get the regular maintenance. You got to find a specialist who can restore & repair your locs to their former glory.
I found myself in just that particular situation, not realizing just how much you’ve neglected it. I had to find a specialist. I ran into a loctician named Shay Thomas- Shay- The Loc Doc who performed emergency surgery on my locs that but had all but lost their luster. Now a brother is back in business reborn, rejuvenated,  restored and ready to rumble.

Check out the video below for the behind-the-scenes footage of the operation!

She does great work! Thanx for sharing AJ, you are not alone, it is all too easy to let necessary health, hair and even exercise slip through the cracks in the daily grind. I appreciate your honesty and transparency which encouraged and reminded me to take care of myself so I can continue to fight the power. Keep up the good work
