Wind Beneath My Wings - Hair Inspiration

I am eternally grateful to these women for sharing their hair experiences and advice with the public.

This book by Lonnice Brittenum Bonner, was my BIBLE. I referred to it often for guidance. This book is a must have for anyone with virgin hair. I like all of her books because she shares funny anecdotes about her hair experiences.

Phyllis Johnson
When I saw her YouTube videos, I KNEW  that I wanted Sisterlocks. She's had her locks for over 10 years and does others' hair too! She also has her own line of loc products. I've been using her Conditioning Mist for a few weeks and I like it.

I was inspired by another of Phyllis's videos. This one featured traditional locks.

I was intrigued by the springy roots. All of the traditional locs I've seen before had firm bases, pulled taut. Fast forward three years, and I'm trying to figure out how to have springy roots. That look appeals to me for some reason. I don't know Phyllis's method, but I came up with something.  As my locks mature, we'll see if it works. More on that later.

Bronze Goddess

I recently came across her videos and I am HOOKED. Great styles, tutorials, and advice!

Thank you ladies for helping Sistas with this hair situation, seriously.


  1. I want to read this book, I've seen it before but didn't have the time to get to it. Have you ever read "Hair Story" by Ayana Byrd and Lori Tharps? It's great for historical perspective.

  2. Charish, I haven't read "Hair Story", yet. Thank you for the recommendation.
