Hello there, I have been wearing my hair in natural styles for many, many years. I am 72 now. One reference to the style of wearing LOCS always feels insulting. My hair is not DREADful, so why do WE continue to call it so? DREAD LOCS was originally referring to black hair worn “locked” and the people who called the style so believed the hair was dirty, unkempt and dreadful!!!!!!!!!
