Featured Naturalista: Tiffany Macklin


Where are you from?
I am from NC

What’s something we wouldn't know by looking at you?
I am the mother of 3 beautiful children (1 boy, 2 girls), I love to dance, and write poetry.  I am a lover of all things positive.  I love to have a good time and enjoy family. I am also a Library Assistant.

How long have you been natural?
I have been natural a year now but have been growing my hair out for 9 months.  This is my second time returning to my natural state. I love it.



Did you do the Big Chop or did you transition to natural hair and When?
I big chopped May 16, 2013 this time.  .

Did you have a support system?
Yes my family supports everything that I do.  They are use to me doing different things with my hair so when I wore a fade they loved it.  My friends were supportive.  My most support came from strangers. They were always nice and asked lots of questions. Some were negative but I push those comments to the side because I know people who don't understand African American hair and won't try to understand are the rudest.


What is more important to you - Hair Length or Hair Health?
Hair health and hair length are both important.  I want healthy hair and a big fro. I try my best to take care of my hair and if I feel like I'm lacking in health and growth I read to educate myself.  I am an avid reader.

What are some of your favorite natural hair products?
Right now I am using Cantu products and Kera Care.  I love them.  It works well for my 4b/4c.

What is your natural hair regimen?
I normally do wash and goes every other day and chunky twist out every other week.


What advice would you give to someone who is considering to go natural or a newly natural sista?
I would say just go for it.  Love yourself no matter what.  I've learned that since being natural.

Hey Loves!

Me: My car took forever to start,
God: Okay

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

Hi Loves,

I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation.

In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs.



Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?
