During the St. Louis Social Media Chicks weekend, I had the most intriguing, curious, and blood-crawling conversation with a lady and I HAD to share the topic here.
Watch the video:
One of my comments on YouTube said it’s not as gross as I seem to think it is, but just thinking about my scalp slowly being pulled off crawls my blood! *scratch*itch*scratch*yikers!*
Have you ever heard of such a thing? Can locs really be that heavy?

So I’m toying with locing my hair next year and I stumbled upon this old post about the potential for heavy locs to make the skin on the scalp sag. As I’ve said in every loc-related video I post (because folks keep asking me lol), I am not a loctition nor do I have locs so this answer is solely based on months of research and decades of knowledge of natural hair.
YES … in theory someone’s locs could be heavy enough to contribute to the skin on their scalp sagging but, as with everything hair-related, there are so many factors that come into play you can never 100% put the full onus on the weight of the locs. The elasticity of the gentleman’s skin, how heavy his locs are, how he maintained and wore his locs, his age, the tendency of his skin to sag with or without locs, all of those could have been factors as to why the skin on his scalp was sagging.
Looking back at this video I’m not even sure why I was so skeeved out LOL! I see men with short haircuts that have rolls in the skin on the back of their heads all the time, they don’t need locs to have that occur. You can’t blame the locs, but apparently in this guys case they probably didn’t help the situation.
Oh … before you go please subscribe to my YouTube channel! Lots of great information to come and there already, plus it really helps me out. Thank you!
