I live in Holland. (no, not Amsterdam) I moved here alone and started dreading in the first month. I live in the east of the country so it is a bit more conservative and dreadlocks aren't common, and if they are seen, they are ridiculously tight and unnatural, because everyone goes to a hair dresser or gobs wax or other bad stuff into their locks.
So of course I got a lot of flak for how I looked and I was thinking of buying wax to make it go faster, and I one point I considered cutting them off.
But then I discovered this site. And I remembered why I got dreads. Its not for other people, it's for me, and I want to have dreads that are full of love and patience as opposed to synthetic goop and bad energy. So I say thank you. To dreadlockssite, and to whom ever happens to be reading this.
Much Love To All
