i have naturally super crazy, poofy, curly hair; which is actually quite pretty. recently i've been seriously considering dreading it just to do something new and interesting with it. i'm worried that if i dread it, i won't like the way it turns out and i'll just be stuck with it :\also, haha my boyfriend really doesn't want me to get them, but i just think it's because it's so hard to picture me with them.

thanks :]you have a lot more guts than i do. being that i'm a girl, i'm pretty much programmed to worry about what i would look like with dreads. idk, i guess i'm worried i wouldn't be able to pull them off. i'm a big fan of the thicker, chunkier dreads and would definitely go for those.soaringeagle said:

yeahh, i had a friend who not too long ago dreaded his hair and he didnt take good care of them and they got smelly and moldy and gross, so he just shaved them off. i didnt think it was possible to comb them out? haha well ill bet its extremely painful as well.Knottysleeves said:
Dreads are actually the natural state of hair -- all the conditioning and combing and brushing and styling we do every day PREVENTS our hair from dreading. If you stop doing all those things, your hair will naturally dread.

So it's a style that looks good on pretty much everyone. :-)

Dreads can always be combed out (it's a lot of work, but it can be done) or cut if you absolutely hate them... it's just hair and it will grow back. But I think you'll fall in love with them once they start forming and doing their own thing!

Seriously thinking about it is good :)Dreads are a great low maintenance way to have your hair, but the beginning stages are not very glamorous...pretty crazy actually. Once they mature they'll be more relaxed but you have to really want to do it. And if after you've had them you don't like it you can comb them out. Lot's of conditioner, a comb and endless patience :)
