You should know something about various locking methods, much as you would inquire about how to cultivate flowers that you have never grown before. If you keep that analogy in mind, the ridiculous concern about whether or not you have to cut off your perm or cut your hair period will make about as much sense as asking if you need to get rid of the concrete before you can plant a garden in the same spot, do I have to cut off my perm? The short answer is yes, but you'll never look back and regret unless you really weren't ready to go for it in the first place. If you want strong, aesthetically appealing locks, the perm just has to go. Can you take locks out? I assume those who want to know how to do this remain deliriously excited about the possibility that waist length locks can mean waist length unlocked hair. I will categorically state that should you have the tenacity to pick apart an entire head of locks, you will not retain anything near the length of your locked hair. Get a grip and get yourself some braid extensions, which can be removed periodically with the goal of retaining the growth and length of your own hair. You'll be happier anatomy of a lock locked hair is a coyly paradox. In order to form locks that flow down straight, the coils must be allowed to mesh and intertwine encouraged to spin together into a cylindrical shaft of hair. Individual coiled strands grow and rest during the hair's life cycle. When the hair is shed, the released coil remains intertwined in the lock, the unlocked hair at the base is alive and growing from the hair follicles. The body of each lock is akin to a large shaft of hair. The average growth rate of hair is about one half inch per month. Remember that this is an average rate. Some hair grows faster or slower and factors like age, health, pregnancy and hereditary have different effects on your hair's growth rate. Human hair grows in three stages. In the cabbage. In stage, the hair prepares to emerge from the follicle. The growth phase, which can last from 2 to 6 year years, is called the antigen stage. The resting stage called the intelligence stage lasts for about three months and then the hair is shed. Hair tends to grow faster in warm seasons than colder ones. The longer your hair's antigen phase lasts, the more predisposed you are to have longer hair for eggs. It takes about six years to grow waist length hair from a short haircut. Given a growth or antigen phase of at least six years, it's fairly clear that women with waist length hair have some genetic advantage going for them, but plenty of women have hair flowing pretty close to that length. How is this possible
