I'm just curious, what was the reason you all decided to dread your hair. Was it simply a cool idea? Political reason? Spiritual? Social statement? Laziness? Because you knew your parents would hate it? Your friend had them???
As for myself it was pure unadulterated compulsion. I got the idea and within 15 minutes I was home, found this website and was dreading. The more I did, the better I liked it. I had absolutely no idea what I was in store for!! I really dig the idea of it, the reaction from people (both good and judgmental), the community here on Dreadlocks forums, and so much more! I used to look young and pretty, now at 46 I look old (well middle-aged) and awesome. This is just far out, no two ways about it.
So what's your story?
