about honeylocs the salon

Honeylocs Natural Hair Care is a chemical free hair center conveniently located in Plano, Texas. We specialize in creating modern, professional looks for those who wear their natural hair. Our goal is to assist you with growing, caring for, and styling healthy natural hair so whether you're in transition, you choose to lock, twist, braid or let it run free... Honeylocs will help you learn how to "Work What God Gave You."

The catalyst for my natural hair journey started over 18 years ago when my passions led me to people who were wearing natural hairdos before they had names like twist outs, braid outs, coils etc... These women worked in professionals environments, were wives and mothers and were focused on natural beauty, healthy eating, and setting positive examples in their communities. As time went on, the habit of relaxing my hair no longer fit with how I saw myself.

As women (and men) we all have our stories on what has guided us to seek out our natural hair journey for ourselves, our children, or our mothers. Whatever path has brought you to pursuing your natural hair journey please believe YOU CAN discover the unique beauty and the freedom of wearing your natural hair.

About our products

I'm often asked; how I came up with the name Free To Swim

 

Free To Swim products address the phobia's we curly hair and kinky hair girls have with getting our hair wet.  We will avoid the rain, the pool, the beach, and dread humidity because of the tedious process of recreating a look that goes against the natural appearance of textured hair. Simply put water in any form can 'mess up' our hairstyles. So, a lot of us won’t swim at the beach, workout at the gym, take a yoga class or do any physical activity if it’s going to compromise our hairstyles.

I want you to know, we can all be Free To Swim if… We love the look of our natural hair, if… We know how totake care of it, and if… We have a regimen of superb products to style our hair.

Because I’ve worn Locs for over 18 years, I wanted my 1st line of natural hair products to address the unique needs of Locs (dreadlocks) as they exist in the natural hair care world. Hence, Free To Swim 'Loc Envy’ was designed to share with the natural hair community all over the world.

Try us out today.  I’m looking forward to my products to be part of your hair care regimen…

P.S.

In my years as a stylist, I have made many connections with the pioneers of this industry who have shared information, taught classes and have been available to me as a resource.  I’d like to especially thank April Atkinson at Locstar, Malaika Tamu Cooper at Dreadznheadz, Taliah Waajid for her contributions to this industry, Ms. Ray at Deep in the roots, Sista Nandi at Wrap-A-Loc, Ansylla Ramsey at My Hairitage and Diane Bailey of Emerge and the organizers of the Natural Hair Industry Convention (NHI).
