Too old for dreads??????
HA Yeah I know! I've had so many people I've known for years say that. Honestly can't believe people would think I would have a hairstyle I couldn't wash!
LOL ! Yeah - after the initial "you're too old", I got the "and they're dirty - you can't wash them" comments too. I shot that down right away. I was surprised because as long as we have been married - going on twenty years this fall, I can't believe my hubby would think that I would do something with my hair that I couldn't wash - YUCK!!!
And Lonnie - I'm with you - down with shoes!!!! (Except in the winter - it get's cold in Michigan - ha ha)

I did some research for my self of course and as I came across information I thought would be good for her to read I forwarded the links to her. It sounds like your husband just needs to understand your decision as he is wound up with the many negative associations and myths surrounding dreading. My boyfriend wasn't too hot about me dreading at first, but through conversation he has now accepted my decision. And NO you're not too old! Life is far too short to be taken too seriously. It sounds like your heart is in the right place and like Dready Bear said-no Hello Kitty beads and you'll be just fine.
