Gina shares her holistic approach to hair care and her top advice for loc extensions.

Natural Belle

NaturallyCurly: How long have you been natural?

Gina: I’ve been natural for five years.

When did you start embracing your curls?

Gina: I started to embrace my natural texture when I was at a university. I was surrounded by new experiences and new people who helped me to embrace other forms of beauty in myself and in others.

What inspired you to install loc extensions?

Gina: I’ve always wanted locs, but I was never sure because I like to change my hair a lot. The idea of trying out the style was such an authentic and easy method. I was inspired by vloggers Alex Elle and Im Shine Struck who have some great tutorials.

What's your daily routine?

Gina: I try to keep things as simple and natural as possible. I’m currently using a mixture of water, cocoa oil, and Haitian castor oil that I concentrate on my scalp and roots daily. I use a similar method when my hair is loose. I seal in my oil and water mixture with organic coconut oil.
