Outmoded attitudes are preserved in the term BAD HAIR for hair which is TIGHT, with a lot of SEEDS  and PEAS . Men no longer have their hair CONK , but women often PRESS their hair to remove the CRIMPS or to get FULL plaits if they GUINEA-ROW or FLAT-ROW their hair, a style which is often flattering unless one has too many COUSINS . If they do their hair in SHINGLES , the plaits hang down ONE-ONE , usually decorated with beads. Young men plait their hair in SQUARES to get thick BUDS , which have the full-ness for a good Afro, although LOW 'FROS are now more popular. Older men don't have to worry about this, especially if they are MANGY-HEAD or BALL-PLATED . They usually disapprove of young DUDE with DREAD-LOCKS . Likewise, KNOTTY DREADS seldom have much good to say about BALL-HEADS
