What is yall views on a shaved rasta?

ive seen at nyabinghi gathering how some rasta judge others who have no locks, thinking them not rasta because so, even though if you have locks doesnt mean you rasta,

how many rasta keep the nazarite law?, not drinking strong drink, cutting hair/facial hair and staying away from dead things.

the way the world is nowadays, you cant tell rasta because of the hair on head, as dreads is a fashion thing too,

having dreads in my opinion does not make you more spiritual, who ever claims this has no facts, as the spirit is not physical, and then how can the physical make you more spiritual,

selassie was a very highly spiritual man, whom was not pictures with long dreads. so i see it as this, if one's are following the nazarite law, then i sight it, but otherwise, theres really no need. as Jah judge the heart and soul, and to think that not having dreads will keep you out of jah kingdom is folly.

I consider myself conscious and I pay zero attention to hairstyles, although it's sort of a red flag when you don't have it natural. I don't mean cutting the hair, that's fine, but when it's crazy hair colors and tattoos and piercings and stuff it's just saying you're low consciousness. I consider someone who grows their hair out and doesn't worry about it the same as someone who cuts their hair and doesn't worry about it. The vanity is the obstruction to conscious observation. Having dreadlocks to prove you're Rasta is the same as a caucasian wearing dreadlocks with shaved sides to prove he's a Viking. The bare minimum for consciousness is having enough dignity in yourself to not have to perform an identity. I personally bite off my moustache so I don't end up pulling the hairs into my mouth when I chew, coming from a caucasian. When my pubic hair gets annoying, I trim that too. If I cut off my dreadlocks, nothing will change, it will take like 2 minutes to chop them off and I'll continue with my life as normal.
