Konasdad,
It must have taken you years and years to grow your hair that long, and a #2 cut is pretty darn short.  You must have had a huge chill on the top of your head, what a contrast.

I love the dreadlocks, when I see them (which is rare that people wear it like that here), I cannot stop staring.  One time I asked this young guy if he minded if I really took a close look.  He was proud of his dreads and told me to look as long as I wanted.  What I could not get over was the feel of the hair, it reminded me of lamb's wool.  I love the feel of the wool while it is still on the sheep, by the way, I love to sink my fingers deep into the wool, it feels so nice with the natural oils present within it.  Oops, off topic.  I tend to go on.

Keep on with the dreads if you can stand the heat.  Great day. Cindi

Actually Cindi, my hair grows like grass. About 2-3 inch /month in summer, and 1in in winter/mnth. The first thing I noticed w/ really short hair was the sweat dripped immediately into my eyes, and i needed about a rain drops worth of shampoo. I had a #2 cut in early sept, and my hair is about 8-10 inches since then. I have noticed that now that I'm in my 40's, it has slowed down(like everything else). I expect that by summer, I will be able to have a ponytail if I chose. I'll never go back to dreds though. Just doesn't go w/ my suit and tie, even if I wear my Jerry Garcia ties!!!!!!!!!!

Sean- if i understand, you are less affected by the heat because your acclimated? Personally, I loved having the long hair and eventually dreds, but couldn't handle the summers. One day i just walked into a barber and went for a #2 razor cut. Almost three feet of hair/dreds to the floor. People were watching me get this cut like it was a spectacle. For years I wore it short. Just this fall, decided to go long again. Its now about short shoulder length. In the back of my head, I know i will cut it the first 95 deg day.

I would think so, but  the climate is changing and as such the summers are getting hotter. That said i must say that i only hear the ladies complain about the heat and their long hair, not the rastas (rastafarians-true followers of the religion). But you do find the ladies cutting their hair because of the heat, how often they have to go to the hairdresser, the length of time for processing etc. They cut all off and voila! no hairdresser, no setters, no hairdryer, just wash, rinse and you're good to go

Go ahead report this thread. I am sure we can send off to some middle managers desk where it will sit and collect dust.  evil

As a person with long hair myself. I have to admit this has been fun to read.

Gottabee owes me a new keyboard because I laughed so hard I split soda on it.

patios is the language/dialect commonly used in jamaica. It has roots in french, spanish english and african. 

"but Boss, is our hair and our heat it how it mus affec we? Just a likke patwah(patois)"

Translation "but sir/mr it is our hair and our heat, how must it affect us"

Andersmnelson not sure if that was what you wanted the translation of.

Gotcha, thanks.

Here are some photos of my sister's dredds. If I recall correctly she has had them for 5yrs. That is 5 summers of northeast ohio humidity and heat.
She still loves them, has a full-time job, works part-time too. Is a very highly respected LMT, and has no plans of cutting her dredds off. cool afro

organicgrl37.  You have a very, very beautiful sister.  Her hair is something beyond beautiful as well.  You must tell her that I am very impressed and admire her long locks of dreads and her beauty that shines through, she is beauty inside and outside, she emits this form of person.  Great day.  Cindi
