This may seem silly, but here it is


General Questions

So I hear a lot of people, not complaining, but commenting on how they feel like the locks on the back of their heads are shorter. Sometimes the locks that grow from the back of your head can tangle a little more. But from videos and pictures that I see, This isn't the case. What people tend to forget is that when your hair is pulled back, the top layer of locks are actually locks that are growing out of the top of your head. Of course they will look and feel shorter than the ones growing out of the back of your head. The main body of the lock has to traverse your head. So the tip of the lock will almost always be above the tips of the locks growing out of the back of your head.

It's not that they are shorter. If you took a ruler or tape measure to them, they'd most likely be about 1-2 inches difference in length. That's not a whole lot.

I don't mean to make anyone feel dumb. I just happened to see a video on youtube where someone commented on this topic, but she didn't pull her locks apart to show where each one was growing from. So I thought I'd mention it here. I commented on her vid too.

I hope this helps you feel better about your dreadlock mullets

Questioning Equal opportunity employment.


General Talk

You could sue them if it was because of your hair. Bit it'll be up to you to prove that was why. Not for them to disprove it. They'll just give the generic "they weren't working out" answer, or something along those lines. Even if it was because of your hair, it's 100% on your shoulders to prove it

New way to introduce yourself


Introduce Yourself

Tons of people really did start growing them for a fashion. That's why I am so hell bent on telling people not to claim spirituality when they go for jobs. You can say that you have them for spiritual reasons, and it's a valid excuse to not have to cut them. But so many people have been making that claim even though they only like how locks look. It ruins it for those of us who have them for a real reason

New way to introduce yourself


Introduce Yourself

So I was thinking about ways to get more people to become closer here. Many of us know each other through posts and topics. Some of us are even friends, but how many of you really check your friends list on the regular? Do you go back and keep in touch with anyone on there in private messages? Probably not. I know I don't always go back and check in to say hi or anything.

So...

I decided that I would like to jump start an idea where we all go into our friends lists and either message or post a comment on each and every one. I know some people have tons and tons of friends. So it doesn't all have to be done in one sitting. But I'd like to get us allacquaintedeven closer.

Find 1 or 2 people a day and just do something to remind them that they're not just another name on a list and forgotten about

fat Locks take special care


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Same, sometimes when it's bon fire season, I let it dry near that. I love the smell of bon fires. People might think they smell I little smoky afterwards, but duh. And the smell wears off in a day or 2. But it's cool to keep smelling it even after I leave

Dread frustration.


Dread Maintenance

Well hair only grows at about 1/4 to 1/2 inch a month. So no matter what you do, it'll take some time, anyway, to have it grow out. And locks almost always lose 1/3 to 1/2 the original length before they start to grow out again. So no matter what method you used to section them, you'd lose length, and it'll be that way for a while (sometimes up to a year).

As for the parts that aren't locking. How old are your locks? You say you've been annoyed with them for the past 2 months. I'm guessing that they aren't older than 4 months. They are still babies. Dreadlocks don't lock up at even rates. It takes a little more time. If you want to help coax them along, you could put beads on the sections that aren't doing much yet. Bead usually help move the progress along a little faster.

There are hundreds of reasons your hair is not as far along as others at your work. You could have different hair texture, oilier hair, shorter hair to begin with. It could depend on how over you are washing vs. how often they are. Not to mention what either of you are washing with. There is no need to feel that you have to rush along the progress. If it's only a few sections that are still untangled, that's not bad. There are people here, who after 5-6 months, are still not seeing any progress. It'll be a little while longer before you start seeing the majority of your hair locking up. And even after they start to mature in a year or so, you will still see sections and strands of untangled hair all over the place.

It's the nature of dreadlocks to just be messy.
