Seeking Dread Families


Dreads in the Family

Hi Kingston,

I'm working on an article about families who wear dreadlocks. It's for a new publication. Overall, I'd like to know why the family decided to wear locks, what this represents to the family, what are the thoughts on their children...are locks required as part of their religion/lifestyle or do the children decide if they want locks or not.

Hi Zerah,

I just sent a friend request in order to email you. Thanks so much for responding. Can you please be sure it's okay with your parents since I may want to include your name in the article. Overall, I just want to know what it means to you as a child growing up in a familywho wearsdreadlocks, how you think that makes you different and if you felt pressure from your parents to wear locks or if it was your choice. Thanks

Zerah said:

Hello. :) I am 15 years old and had dreadlocks from the time that I was a baby until I was seven years old. About a year ago I began my second dreadlock journey. Both my parents have dreadlocks. They are divorced now, and my step mother has dreads and also my step father had dreads but cut them off a few years ago. I also have seven siblings ranging from the age of 18 months to 18 years old who all have dreadlocks or have had them in the past. I'm not sure who in the family would be willing to be a part of this interview but I definitely would!

i convinced my mom of letting me get locks in 2009 or 2008 with the condition that i be successful and happy, that i would keep them clean and all that as well. finally 2011 i decide its the right time and... success! my mom actually likes them and interested in how they evolve and the minimal upkeep for great looking locks.

Hi Loc Lava,

It's for a new magazine launching in late June called DreadSetterz. It'll provide readers with resources for hairstyles, salons, hair care maintenance, education and history of locks.

I'd love for you to answer a few questions, if possible (10 total).

Thanks in advance.

Kerry

Looking to profile a family (parents and children) with locks for an upcoming article in a new magazine about dreads. Anyone fit the profile?

Why was this the decision made? What do they represent to your family? Why was the decision made to lock the children's hair? Also looking for a family where the parents have locks but have chosen to allow their child(ren) to decide whether or not to have locks.

Please provide your email address if you're able to help. Interviews can be handled via email.

Thanks in advance!
