The Resilient Lotus: When did you start your locs & what inspired you to start them?
Dominique: I started my locs on July 21, 2017. I started them because I wanted to see how long I could grow my hair. 🙂
TRL: Who do you look up to in the loc community? Do you have anyone who’s locs you admire ?
D: I look up to you, Keisha Charmaine, and Spirit (Big Spirit Energy. I think it’s pretty cool how you all went from making YouTube videos to creating your own products. Also, there was a youtuber called locsunloaded whose hair journey was inspiring.
TRL: Could you tell me what you like about the Mint Condition oil so far?
D: I really like the smell of it. It’s not too strong. I like using it after working out. It gives my hair a nice clean, but not overwhelming, scent. And also, I really like how hydrated it made my scalp feel. This surprised me, because in the past I have tried peppermint products that were really drying on my hair.
TRL: What’s your favorite product from us?
D: My favorite product is definitely the Holy Hemp Oil. I first tried it in the beginning of my loc journey because my hair and scalp were super dry. I kept searching for a product that would help relieve the dryness. Then i found this oil. It’s very hydrating and lightweight. I feel like it saved my hair, because I was on the verge of cutting my hair off. So, please don’t ever stop making this oil! Lol
