Friend thinks I should cut my hair, says they smell 'unpleasant'

So, a friend recently told me she thinks I should cut my locs. One of the reasons is because of the way I grew them, they smell unpleasant.

So I guess here is the history of my hair. I've been growing my hair out for a bout 2+ years now. I didn't do any twisting or anything, just kinda let it grow out on its own. I've been using dr. bronner's magic soap to wash it. I've been using the unscented one. Could this have something to do with the way it smells? I also don't wash it every day, probably ever 2-3 days, maybe I should make an effort to wash it more often. But one day I was with her and had washed it that day and she said it still kinda smelled.

She also strongly suggest I cut it off and if I still want the dreads, to do it the right way, and start them off professionally somewhere like she did.

I also find myself job hunting again, so maybe that's another reason I should just cut them and forget it.

I could post pics if it helps, I may later but my laptop is making it difficult right now.

I would try the shampoo bars. I love the karma locking gel as well. I just got a ton a compliments about how good my hair smelt on Christmas. A little of the locking gel goes a long way!

Good luck with your journey!!

they don't smell much to me no. maybe a little but i have to really put the hair up to my nose to notice anything. my brother has mentioned the smell to me before though. really those are the only 2 complaints about it smelling i can think of.

uploaded some pics of my dreads at different angles. i kind of agree they could look better though. i especially don't like the ends and how it looks in the front. would trimming them be a good idea?

I personally love the loose ends. If you feel you need to cut them for a job, that is up to you. You know yourself and your needs more than anyone else. I wouldn't cut them because of the smell though, you can remedy that:) I think they look great!
