I can’t remember how it happened, but one lucky day, I stumbled upon the chescalocs YouTube Channel, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Video blogger Franchesca, or Chescaleigh, as she’s known on Facebook, is extremely creative and hilarious. I’ve developed a habit of falling down the rabbit hole that is her YouTube channel, where she tutors on loc hairstyles and gives tips for maintenance, for hours at a time. She’s given me the courage to experiment more with my locs, or dreadlocks as some people call them. Keep reading »
