The decision on whether to cut your locs or not normally comes to the client after having locs for years. The client normally gets bored or may have gone through some recent life experiences they may be troubling. As a loctician, I always advice these clients to do whatever makes them feel the best. Cutting hair sometimes represents how dramatic a situation may be in their life; therefore I sometimes tell my clients to make sure they're not making a permanent decision on something that may be temporary.
