Downside to dreads? Keeping it real!
I have way more ups than downs with my dreads babies!
The Pros- * No more Creamy crack (aka relaxer!)
* Little to no maintenance to go out the door.
*swimming( I no longer have to deal with giant wet afro I have to comb while wet to maintain!)
*Wrapping em in scarves! ( So much easier to wrap up my hair.)
*Attaching lil decorations...I just got a lil fish bead from a friend I attached to one.
*texture ( is it weird I love the texture of my dreads?)
And many more.... A couple Cons- * piercings....My nape piercing and my tragus piercings do not see eye to eye with my dreads. Constantly getting caught up in them.
*dry time ( I like to shower after work which is later so it usually involves me using my blow dryer so i can go to bed with dry dreads.
*common stereotypes about dreads. YES THEY ARE CLEAN I WAS THEM REGULARLY! GAHHH!
*and I have a love hate relationship with the shrinkage. I love it cause it means they are maturing but hate that they are gonna get short before they get long! So far I've had a lot of shrinkage.
