I've wanted dreads for a while, but my husband is opposed to the idea. I'd thought about getting dreadfalls and he's okay with that, but there's something about natural dreads that really appeals to me. As I'm making the switch to a vegetarian lifestyle, I'm wanting the natural dreads even more.
Also, I'm in a legal battle with my ex-husband, so I'm also hesitant to get dreads for that reason, since many people in those positions look negatively toward people with dreads.
I guess my questions are:
1. Is it ridiculous for a 32 year old married mother of two to get dreads in the first place?
2. Have you had people look down on you simply for the dreads?
3. Is it possible to have some dreads, but not your whole head dreaded?
4. Have any of you dealt with negative opposition from family members for getting dreads?
