(At school so idont have many more photos)
Ive been Lurking this site for many many months, reading every forum(almost) and i only ran into it after i started my dreads in the summer before highschool, nothing really bad has happened except 4 things
1. Falling in the shower on a tube of toothpaste and getting it allover my back dreads.
2. crocheted and interlocked after a month but found this site and took out them and redid them tnr only
3. Constant judgement from being 1 of 2 white kids at my school with dreads (everyone said i copied him even though i wanted dreads since i was 12) he cut them off but before that i always said i was gonna dye them a certain color but he would always do it a week later and since he was older everyone thought i copied him
4. school security gaurd stops me all the time bc he thinks i sell weed.
so those are the only bad things that have happened, when i originally started i had abt 4 inch long hair i have fairly curly hair so it was fine, when i started i wanted to look like a video character named ulysses from fallout new vegas, but knowing my hair isnt the same that got vetoed, then when justinbieber got dreadsi made mine to imitate his, being shorter albeit. but after awhile i just kinda just let go of the imitating and let them do their thing, that stopped when i imitated my dreadsagain to XXXTENtACION, but now im completely done and letting them grow out brown, my normal color is a Dark richbrown.i know it isnt likely because no dreads are the same but my alltime favorite dreadsive ever seen on a person is jack roth on this forum, those are some beautiful ass dreads...
The best thing ive gotten while having them is compliments from strangers, my dad refused to go with me anywhere until i was with him and we were walking at the mall and employees complimented my hair(similir to SRs story abt his dreads and mom) my mom had dreads in highschool so he said he understood the "rebel chique"
the only product i use is 365 Normal hair no scent whole foods shampoo, it works great, cleans my hair, not much else to say lol
cant wait to record my progress on the site!
