About Us

Welcome to Loc 'n Roll! We're all about embracing natural beauty and celebrating uniqueness. It all started when I said, "No more!" to society's expectations and embraced my natural hair with a big chop. From that moment, there was no turning back.

I'm Shireesh Christians, the proud owner of Loc 'n Roll. Originally from Cape Town, South Africa, I've been rocking the New Zealand vibe for nine years now. Growing up, I thought I had to conform to the straight hair trend, surrounded by beautiful girls in Model C schools. But one day, my hair rebelled and became lifeless. That's when I decided it was time to show my true authentic self.

Enter "Fran the Fro"! I welcomed her into my life with open arms, and she became a part of my unique repertoire. At Loc 'n Roll, we believe everyone should have the freedom to express their true selves and embrace their natural beauty. That's why we're passionate about empowering the younger generation to love themselves from an early age. We're not just about hair care products, though.

As a community we are also here to help guide the younger generation, instilling self-acceptance and confidence so they never feel the need to conform to narrow beauty standards. Let's create an environment where young individuals can confidently celebrate their diverse hair textures and identities. With our curated selection of hair care products, styling tools, and accessories tailored for textured hair, we're here to support your natural hair journey.

We'll provide valuable resources, tips, and advice to help you embrace and maintain your beautiful locks. Together, let's create a space where the younger generation feels inspired, encouraged, and celebrated. Join us on this incredible journey of self-discovery, self-love, and embracing our authentic selves.

Let's celebrate the beauty of diversity and empower our younger generation to embrace their unique beauty right from the start. With love and curls,

Shireesh Christians
Owner, Loc 'n Roll
