    I have been wanting to ask this question, for a long time because I am curious to know if ther is a preference. I have seen a couple of locks that were touching the ground and i thought-how do you wash it.


    I will go first, i choose, number 2 the middle of my back, because that is a nice look and a nice length to me.

    I'll let it grow as long as I can take care of it. After that, if I ever get to that point, I'll trim it.

    I definitely want to see how long they will grow, but I don't want them to the ground. Once they reach my butt, I'd probably cut them to mid back length, although shoulder length is nice too. Decision, decisions!! :wacko:

    Okay, I'll say mid back length. Aren't locs grand!!!!

    i want them to be a length, where i can manage them. i am concerned about not being able to dry them properly to combat mildew. i would like them to be a little past my shoulders, but as of this moment I have a long ways to go!

    locs are grand!

    My back locks are to the middle of my back and my front locks are breast length. My back locks were longer, I cut them a few months ago. I don&#39;t think I could manage longer than butt length but I&#39;ll have to decide then if I&#39;ll cut them or not. That won&#39;t be for another 2-3 years so I&#39;ve got plenty of time to ponder it.

    op: My locs are "almost" to the middle of my back, and in front, right above my breast. I&#39;ll see what the next few years will bring in terms of growth.

    I just got mine Palm-Rolled today, {putting the "Hook" down}.
    I still have the rollers in, yet I hope the curls last through next week. {Oh the rollers are coming down Sunday}

    Awwww, sooky, sooky now ... . This is a topic that I&#39;ve been looking forward to ... and one of the reasons that I decided to loc (the length potential)!

    I&#39;m looking forward to a length of just below my shoulders but just above brastrap length.

    Hey, QueenLi. Do you mind me asking why you decided to stop using "the hook"?

    i really don&#39;t like very long hair. hair can really be a hassle. i&#39;ve always said that i&#39;d cut/trim after i could get a good high ponytail, but now i love my hair so much that i really can&#39;t imagine taking scissors to them at all. i think once they reach my back/bra strap, i&#39;ll probably trim them back. i&#39;ve always worn my hair short(er) so that&#39;s what i prefer, but i know that it would be nice to have shoulderish length locs to play around with sometimes.

    beyond midback i really think they&#39;ll be too long for me. we&#39;ll see what i say then

    ETA: said all that and didn&#39;t pick a number between #1 and #2 if i can actually bring myself to cut.
