My town is VERY conservative or VERY redneck. Either way you do not see white people walking around here with dreads. I have lived here my whole life and have only seen one person ( a white guy) wearing dreads and that was about 10 years ago in a bar at night. I have never seen anyone walking down the street with dreadlocks. Wild huh?????Sister Rags said:

I am 48 and have had my dreads for one year. I did talk to my hubby who was 53 before I did it. I had a kind of spiritual reason for doing it so he was pretty accepting. But hey four years before this I just had to have another baby and off to China he went with me, so I think he was relieved it was just dreads LOL. Maybe you should like shoot for something really crazy and when he says no just say, "so about those dreads?"As a side note he would be really bummed if I threatened to cut them now, he loves them!

you're never too old to do what you want. If you want to change your hairstyle, go for it fully and completely with no regrets.

The only difference between me getting them at my age and you getting them at your age is that I started earlier.

I've wanted to get a nose ring forever!! My hubby doesn't want me to. He is SO not into piercings either. He doesn't mind my ears, tolerated my belly-button ring (which I ended up taking out after I had my first born), and absolutely does not want me to get a nose piercing. I have let him win on this one...;)Sister Rags said:
Aw, I dunno....I got my nose pierced for my 38th b-day and got my first tats at age 42. Do you know, Rae, that in ancient times NO ONE was permitted to begin studying the Kabbalah before age 40?

I just turned 41 this month and I have had my dreads for ten years. I also wear beads in them. Right now I have decorated them with small light green glass beads with pink roses. They're positioned near the crown of my head. I mostly wear my dreads up for two reasons the length and because my little girl wants to play with them out of habit like one of her Barbie's. I now work part time in a monastery and I seriously Love it. It's indescribable. Before this I used to work in professional office setting, business suit, make up, heels, hose the whole bit. I've never really had any negative comments to my face. Some curious stares, some whispers, most people really don't know what to make of them and I don't really care at this point. If it wouldn't be my hair, it would be something else about me they wouldn't like.
