This is a cabinet card with a bizarre image. This image brings up more questions than it does tell a story.....
- did he comb it out regularly, or was it permanently braided?
- if the former, how long did it take to comb it out?
- if the latter, were there insects living in there?
- what did he do with it when he went to bed?
- did he wash it?
- did he have neck or back problems from carrying around all that weight?
- and the big one........WHY?

    as someone who used to wear dreads [when i had enough hair to do it], i used to get these same questions all the time. i'll answer them w/ my own guesses. no, he didn't comb it out or it never would have gotten so long. combing breaks off a lot of hair. braiding it makes it stronger so it won't break. i'll assume that his beard went to bed w/ him every single night. he may have tied it up when he went to bed - mainly to keep rrom braking t.

    do woman w/ long hair get insects in it when they let it grow long? i will assume he washed it.

    hair is not really so heavy, so i don't know how he'd get backaches.
