Dreads and the Ocean
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.

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.
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...
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
