Q. I was wondering if your hair still grows while you have dreadlocks?
A. Well, the clearest example of the fact that dreads do indeed keep growing after you lock up is all the Bob Marley album covers. Look at his hair on the cover of Catch a Fire (little tiny buckwheat naps), and then look at his dreads on the cover of Kaya, say. By the time he died, they were nearly down to his waist! Yes, dreads definitely do grow!
