Oh yeah. I'd LOVE to hear everyone's reason - yes you, and I mean each and every one of you dread-kin people here - on why you decided to dread your hair, or why your going to. (Only if you're comfortable sharing.) I have a passion for psych stuff and in general am just really interested in everyone's motivation for dreading.
Ice Breaker time!
I guess I'll go first and give you my reason: I decided to dread after five years of thinking about doing it. I just turned 29 so my secondary reasoning was, "If it doesn't work out or I look goofy and have to shave my head then I can blame it on still being in my twenties." My Primary reason however was because I really wanted to tap in and pay homage to my native american ancestry; I like feeling like a wild woman, tapped into the land and to nature, tribal, feral maybe, and dreads make me feel sexy and untamed. My totem animal is the horse (trained them for 10+ years) and I have always been very unbridled and un-tame-able since I was knee high to a grasshopper. I sort of refuse to be domesticated or broken, so everything makes sense in my own little universe of self-thought.
Until Next Time,
