Life Issues Facing Dreads

Hi @Noodle-Doo ! I'm going to get up pictures, and want to blog a little or something about my experience. I gotta give back some of the love and sharing I've received here.

Life Issues Facing Dreads

This is so sad :( I dated a guy with dreads long ago,he was black/ white mix. my hair always dreaded up by the end of the day and when I decided to let it go he got very upset with me telling me I could not do that. I was shocked, we had friends of all different hair types and ethnic back grounds with dreads. It revealed how two faced he was. If this very rude guy ( to say the least) in your post is at least having a open dialogue about his feelings he will at least maybe get dreaducated. When I met my husband 14 years ago I had dreads. I shaved my head as our relationship got closer for some reason ( I had monk friends with shaved heads, Buddhists philosophy was really coming up in my path I guess I was experimenting) those negative ideals about whites with dreads lurked in my shadows I think .i kept my hair brushed, donated it every couple of years but always had this sadness of not having dreads. About 2 1/2 years ago I decided to let my hair dread once again, it felt great. I thought it was my for ever set. However I emitted this hard core energy of dont talk about my hair to every one and no one did. ( except a few people) but I really put up a wall with out saying a thing to my family because I guess it would have really hurt if they thought my dreads were anything less than a great idea.sorry to ramble, on to my point. I recently and sadly cut off this set :( I know now its mostly because of not being open to dialogue about them. Now my hair just looks like a cute messy pixie cut but definitely as it starts to mat together I'm going to discuss it especially with those I love and work with. Lockin my hair up is extremely personal if others don't like it for some reason I want to talk about it especially if they are important people in my life. I may be pleasantly surprised by some nice comments ;) too. This website and forum is really genius, it's really helping me feel comfortable with my decision to have locks. XOXO to all you fellow dreadies.
