I'm a 26 year old male who is currently dealing with a receding hairline. It started about 2 years ago and now I have what they call the "devil horns". There are no actual bald spots but my hair has become noticeably thin in the front. This has actually caused me quite a bit of stress seeing as how most other dudes my age still have a full head of hair. I've decided to give up maintaining a short hair cut since everything up there just looks thin and unhealthy.
The issue is I REALLY want locs, as I'm tired of the short look and want to grow my hair out. My questions are as follows:
1. Is this a good decision to make appearance wise? Can someone with a receding hairline pull off dreads?
2. Will having locs make the problem even worse? Is there a certain type of loc style that would be preferable?
3. How long should I grow my hair out before I start the loc process?
4. Any products that you can recommend?
Looking for advice from those who are rather experienced in this area, but I welcome all opinions.
