The Knotty Truth™: 2018 Consultative Service Launch

If you've never been to a Knotty Truth Seminar, or had a Knotty Truth Consultation, than you may not know what the difference is between KnottyLocks and all of the other different kind of lock installations. The key difference IS the consult, the install and the technique. Knottylocs are not braidlocks, they are not twists, they are not Sisterlocs, they are not coils, freeform, latch or any other. They are all. The technique used is a uniform install technique that complements You, is built around You and does not force your hair to conform to a restrictive system. You is at the center of The Knotty Truth™ system and does not work with out you. The Knotty Truth™Locs are customized locks installed for you, maintained with you and curated for you.

Let me explain.
To be totally transparent, the amount of attention and nurturing you get from a Knotty Install is the secret in the sauce. For years I have worked with clients. They come for various reasons, some because they have wanted l…

The Knotty Truth Launches in the Bay Area! Florida That Is

As a new resident to Florida, I went about the business of establishing my business here and closing my Ohio-based business. It's been a relatively easy process, surprisingly. Surprisingly, because Florida is extremely progressive in some instances and regressive in others. If you are contemplating a natural hair care business in Florida, here are some things to think about.

Florida is very friendly towards natural hair care. In Florida, to officially do hair, a 16 hour course requirement is the only 'barrier'. Personally, I consider this a booster towards entrepreneurship. In restrictive states like Ohio (yeh, I"m calling you OUT Ohio). A 760 hour (reduced to 400 last I checked) in hair extensions and braiding techniques is required to legally do natural hair. There's only one school in Columbus, OH that offers the program.

Because Florida is friendly towards natural hair care, the District 11 ruling stands on hostile territory. I have never in my life seen so ma…

Getting' Messy with Policy and Hair: Follow Up on US District Court 11's Ban on Dreadlocks

Clouds were bearing down on the nation, as a season was coming to an end. After 2 seasons of togetherness, hope, possibility, a nation seemed to have enough peace and happiness. Now, the raging sea of evil rose higher and higher, set to swallow up the naïve and engulf the nation, vomiting up the bile of a hidden past, stained with the stench of misogyny, porn stars, treason, xenophobia and every other sordid evil this nation cloaked with a thin veil of gentility that was imploding. A man emboldened with desire to rule versus govern grabbed the helm of the most powerful position in the nation, inebriated with the drink of power and greed. He was devoid of a desire to honor and serve and girded with an iron fist to rule and conquer via a cloak of dishonor and disgrace, unleashing xenophobic fear as his power source. So, what does politics have to do with hair? Everything. As the curtain was closing on the age of hope, fall 2016, the District 11 court case seated a 2010 case against Catas…
