Dreads and the Ocean


General Questions

Anything I should know about going into the ocean with dreads? All I figure is I'm going to get some sand stuck in there but any info would be appreciated.

Too thin/many locs?


General Talk

I was simply trying to say if you used a 1 inch base there is no way you would only have 20-30 dreads!

Because I used a 1 inch BASE and have twice that many. Most people I assume are 'guesstimating' the base when they do it and do it slightly larger 1-1/2 I'm guessing. Not the actual width of your loc.

Just want that to be clear for people who are starting out themselves as I followed the 1 inch and have much smaller locs than originally intended.

"The average human head (an average scalp measures approximately 120 square inches or 770 cm)..." Now that is most certainly an average since heads are varying sizes as well as heads in comparison to

Well im still going to say its about 60 square inches. I dont know how you cant accept simple facts of math.

Seriously how far is your hair in inches from where it starts in the front to the back and multiply the length in inches from one side to the other that's how you get square inches. I guarantee you will get atleast more than double what you are trying to tell me. There is no 'well my dreads are about x inches and I have about 25 or whatever'. That's not how you measure.

I will make up a diagram if you can understand pictures better...

You cant divide the 100k average by avg of 2.2k per square inch because your hair varies alot in how much hair per inch. Talking about hair area not amount of hair per inch.

Regardless that 45 is still about 20 more than everyone was saying...

Yes but is that your actual loc width or the BASE area of hair.... seriously take a piece of paper and copy over a bunch of 1 inch squares...

Or measure and do simple math..

Its not my math, its basic math. If we took the minimal of what someones square inches of hair coverage it would be between 80-90 sq in. If you hair is 8 inches across and from front to back is 10-12 inches (most peoples its more) do that simple math and what do you get...

think if you shaved your head, how many of these you could draw on it lol

I'm gonna go ahead and guess people who do that then tend to make them a little larger than an inch... 30 1 inch dreads would cover the top of your head and that's all.Take some measuring tape to someones head, I did. Also measured a good many of my bases when I first did my locs to make sureI do have 1 other question, I wear a bandana a lot do you think they have enough room to move around and form or should I let them down more?
