O.K. guys, I reiterated to my husband last night that yes, I am actually dreading my hair, it wasnot a joke. His response???? You are too old for that. It won't look good on you. You are not the type for dreads.Period. For all of you out there that don't already know, I will be 42 in July. Before you start gutting my husband, just be aware that he is a conservative 52 year old fuddy-duddy, so have mercy on him. He didn't intend to be mean, just giving me his loving opinion. I would be just as blunt with him about something I don't agree with - we don't pull punches in this house!
I am sure there are people on here older than me (I think- you ARE out there aren't you???) So, what do you guys think? Can an older (middle-middle aged) woman wear dreads gracefully? Keep in mind, I am not a "jock", "hippie" or "woodsy goddess" type. I am more of farm girl - animal and garden geared. Sometimes I like to slop around in my farm clothes in the mud, sometimes I like to dress in the latest styles and go out. Can I do it all with dreads and not look like a 42 year old dork?????
