The Story Behind Locticians Community and Directory

Rooted in Faith, Legacy, and Community

In the quiet town of Gretna, Virginia, a spark of change was ignited by Kavonte Jones Sr., inspired by the strong, naturally beautiful people around him. The journey began with a simple observation: the women and men embracing their natural hair, each lock telling a story of pride, heritage, and self-love.

A Loctician, by definition, is someone skilled in caring for dreadlocks. But for Kavonte and his growing community, it meant much more. It became a symbol of a shared mission, to honor natural beauty and build a powerful community around it. It was about celebrating the journey of self-discovery and supporting others on this path. 

With this vision, the Locticians Community and Directory was born. It was more than a name; it was a promise of a space where people could connect, learn, and grow together. It was about creating a family that shared stories, experiences, and the joy of embracing one’s natural self.

The word spread fast. From Gretna to the vibrant city of Lagos, the spirit of Locticians reached hearts across oceans. It wasn’t just a directory anymore; it was a movement. A place for everyone, men and women alike, to find support, inspiration, and a sense of belonging.

Every day, the community grew. Each new member added a fresh story, a unique perspective, making the Locticians family richer and more diverse. And as the community expanded, so did the vision. It became a global dialogue about self-love, community support, and the magic that happens when people come together for a shared cause.

Kavonte was the catalyst, his passion and drive were contagious. But he always said, it wasn’t about him. It was about 'us'—the community, the movers and shakers, the dreamers and doers. It was about creating something bigger, something lasting.

The Locticians Community and Directory is now a thriving, global family, bound by a shared love for natural beauty and a commitment to supporting each other. It's a legacy of empowerment, acceptance, and community spirit that’s only growing stronger with each passing day.

This isn't just a story of how a community came to be. It's a testament to what can happen when one person's vision ignites the spirit of many, creating a ripple effect of positive change that knows no bounds. And as Kavonte often says, this is just the beginning. There’s so much more to come, so many more lives to touch, and endless stories yet to be told.
