    Maybe it's my imagination, but it seems to me that men in their 20s and 30s have faster growing locs than women. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Eh.... I think it really just depends on the person.... BUT it could have something to do with testosterone????? :dunno:

    I think it just depends on the person and their lifestyle. Males tend to be more active than females which keeps the blood flowing good which has a lot to do with hair growth.

    In defense of this theory---it may also have something to do with the lack of manipulation that men put on their hair/locs/braids/etc.

    There are exceptions to the "rules" but women tend to be more opt to over styling--super tight braids--excessively manicured locs,etc.


    HTH!

    The type of hair grown from scalps isn't helped by testosterene. It's proven to be potentially damaged by it, rather. The types of follicles which are stimulated by that hormone tend to be classically attributed to masculinity or too much testosterene for a particular female.

    However, I do agree that less manipulation and retention are usually coupled quite nicely. For now, I figure that alone (beside much less product usage if that isn't considered manipulation) is evidence enough.

    i think that male hair grows faster in general regardless of whether they are locing or not. i am witnessing this in both my children and my grandchildren. my son's hair grows so fast that i can swear that i see it sprouting from his head. same for my grandson. now my granddaughter, well that poor chile is having a problem. little gummy, my grandson, gets his hair braided just like little mahogany and his hair is passing her by at 15 mos. she is almost 6. my son is gonna bankrupt me at the barber shop.

    my brother has locs and his hair grows much faster than mine. he has cut his locs back to my length several times already and still it leaps out and passes mine. i do not manipulate my locs at all. in fact, he is a twister and i am not.

    just my observation.

    It does seem that way. My hair grows fast too. But guys have the advantage it seems, eyelashes, nails and hair why is it not graced on women regularly? Could be simply the hormones they possess! :-)

    ^^^IA, I have read that nails and eyelashes are stronger and grow faster on men.

    As far as hair is concerned, I am not sure. But I tend to think that either way, that men are less 'fussy' with their hair, and we know leaving hair alone is the best thing you can do. Women are more likely do to a lot more styling, brushing, tightening, washing, etc. that can cause breakage and affect growth. Men are more likely to get their hair tightened and not do a thing until it's time to get it tightened again.
    God Bless!
