dready parents and dreadful children

this is a group for all parents who have dreads, or parents of kids with dreads. its also a place for kids who want dreads to network with parents with dreads as well as a place for parents who are reluctant to allow theyre kids to dread.
we will try to give fair and ballanced opinions on the advantages and drawbacks without insisting one way or the other is right.

its a gathering place too for discussing all matters facing dready families and to celebrate the beauty of our parents and childrens dreadlocked lifestyles

hello im Earth,

i started my son royals dreds when he was about 2 1/2 yrs young, he wanted dreds like one of my best friends derek an bams hair, so i did them for him,he will be 5 in jan,  they are spiritual an live that way as well, which for me was a great role model as a male for my son i just recently started mine, and wanted us to have this journey together, i do give him the choice of having them and he chooses wisely for now lol. knowing what dreds really means is important an thats why i started mine i am ready at this point in my journey to have them an be apart of the energy that it brings as well. happy to see more parents an children with dreds, they will be great adults with being shown this path in life, for me its a step ahead of what i knew as a child back then, so their are seeing a more light filled energy started at a young age, by the time they have kids they will be on a higher level for their next generation.. thats just in my opinion :) love an light to you an all your children

Hey Shanxon thats super cool that your little girl decided that she wanted to dread her hair! My daughter still isnt doing too much talking so  she really cant tell us what she  wants to do with her hair, so we run or fingers through it every day or two to keep it form dreading.. I think we are going to do as you all did, you know just let her decide.. Its not our choice as parents to decide for them but let them choose. I do think that you must be setting a good example  for your kid if she is on track with doing things differently and wanting to exp[ress herself freely with dreadlocks... Love to see some pics of your little ones locks. sounds adorable :) 

Comment by Shanxon Lemasters on October 25, 2011 at 8:51pm

Andy it was really nice to read someone else's post about something my husband and I debated on! (been without net so I'm a smidge behind sorry!) I was wondering what you decided on? My daughter got a dreadlock literally almost over night, we decided to keep that one because she had already been asking to dreadlock her hair, she loves mine (she's 2 by the way she will be 3 in April). We decided to let her keep that one because she'd cry and get really upset if we got near it with a brush, we have since decided to let her continue her dreadlock journey. We pretty much knew it would be inevitable the way she loved mine and HATES her hair being brushed, (she's really curly like me) she now has about 1/2 a dozen baby dreadlocks, and 1 that is 2 months old and really locked up!

Comment by Kerry Phillips on May 11, 2011 at 4:02pm

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 let me know if you're able to help. Interviews can be handled via email.


Thanks in advance!

Hello there everyone!  My name is Trina.  My 11yr old son has dreadlocks and has had them since he was 8yrs of age. At the age of 8 is when he decided he wanted to have my stop combing his hair and just let it dread.  He was all for keeping it natural. Now his dreads are thick,healthy,and very long.  I never tried to convince into letting his hair dread he just one day asked me a bunch of question on why I decided to let my hair dread and how to take care of them.

My husband does not have dreads and  a lot of people ask him why not.  He just doesn't want them. It's funny because overnight the back of his head tries to dread.
