Guest Post: Leah's Lovely Golden Locs

My style is very eclectic! I'm a physical education teacher, so you'll usually see me in shorts and a t-shirt, but when I get to dress up, I don't limit myself to a specific style. If I like it on my body, I buy it.
I wish I could say "grilled salmon on a bed of greens", but that is not the case. I try to eat healthy, but sometimes my taste buds defeat my waistline. My favorite foods are BJ's brand pizza and baked salmon sushi (healthy, right?), I also love Nutty Coconut ice cream from Baskin Robbins.
Hair Routine/Favorite Products
My hair routine is very simple, I wash my hair once or twice a week, depending on how often I make it to the gym. In the beginning, I used the official sisterlocks line of products because it helps with the locking process. As soon as my locks were settled, I changed my regimen because the shampoo was drying my scalp.
Currently, I'm using Pantene ProV moisture shampoo and conditioner, which is what I used before I was locked. Since my hair is locked, I decided to use a shampoo that made my hair feel clean, moist and smell nice. As far as what I put on my hair, from time to time, I apply an apple cider vinegar rinse. I also use jojoba oil on my scalp and face. Peppermint oil and Clary Sage are also an important part of my hair regimen, I use them on my edges, because I abused my hair line by consistently wearing braids in high school and college. As an athlete, I played basketball and ran cross country, braids were my best option at the time.
I usually wear my hair as it falls on most days, with an undefined part on my left side. My husband and I go out to dinner with friends regularly and to church most Sundays, so that's when I typically style my hair.
