Happy Canadian hippie and ordained Metaphysical Minister. I am now 42 yrs old, married 17 yrs. Virgin dreadlocker! My dreads pay tribute to the end of a significant portion of my life and the beginning of another. I have never been so FREE!

Wow, thanks for that great info on hennas, Becka! I miss my "red" hair. You sure look like a natural redhead with your lovely freckles! I am not sure about coloring mine, as I think it will be cool to have grey dreads. I have very few grey hairs right now, though I'm sure by the time my teenage daughters leave home I will have MANY more! hahaha
