The LocD Files: Strait Jigg

The LocD Files: Strait Jigg

Published on Feb 17th 2011

What is your name and what do you do?

My name is Jigg, (Strait Jigg). I’m an upcoming rapper in New Orleans & a small time hip hop promoter (mainly for rap group, Da U Boys)

How long have you been growing out your locs?

I have had my dreadlocks for almost 6yrs. (Since Hurricane Katrina)

Who is your loctician?

I’m str8 outta the hood (lol) so I rarely go to the hair salon to get my dreads touched up. Usual do them myself or have a female friend do it. (I actually started my dreads myself when I was 17)

What is your regimen for your locs?

I don’t have much of a “regimen”. When I decide that they need a touch up I wash them & get them done. & I might spray different oils on them every now & again.

Have your locs ever hindered you professionally?

Yes. I have actually quit jobs b4 starting, because of my hair. I have gone to interviews, got the job, showed up for work & then wuz told my hair needed to be cut. Obviously, I quit on the spot. (Lol)

Any advice to someone just starting out on their journey?

Be patient. Ur dreads won’t grow down ur back over night! & wear them the way YOU want. Other people’s opinions don’t matter. Its your hair.
