I've struggled with the decision to permanently dread my hair. Where I live in Florida, it's not as accepted as, say, Michigan to have dread locks. Still...I've always wanted them, so I have decided to take the plunge at the end of the month.

Do you think they'll look good?

What a wonderful response! Thank you, Desirae! I think my hair is too short, though, so the stylist mentioned putting in synthetic hair to make them longer. What do you think?

Yep, they'll look good. But it's all about how YOU see them.

You could have a set so beautifully, gorgeously perfect that it turns heads and stops people in their tracks, but if YOU don't like them, it won't matter what anyone says.

Just make sure you don't constantly compare yours to other people's or you'll have MAJOR envy. XD

I think you'll know when your ready. You have to think of why you want them. Also, your hair is short, so it will definitely get way shorter, which is no big deal...just letting you know. Are you just gonna stop brushing it? Mainly, if you don't have a really good idea that you want them, or know why...you may end up brushing them out in a few months when your hair gets crazy.

I am totally ready after looking through pictures on the 'net and this site! I am going to have it locked by a dread stylist.

What are you talking about? I live in Florida and my dreads are fine. Fuck what other people think, its your hair, your choice. Asking people if you would look good with them is kind of sad.

I am not entirely sure going to a stylist is a great idea. Just me... I know what they would put in my hair n I would not let them near me w a 100 ft pole. lol

I agree w Desirae, though, it matters how YOU feel n think, not others.And that is why I mentioned what I did above. I have only heard bad things about dreadlocks that were started by stylists or with the products they use, and of course we all want you to be happy with your hair! Just a friendly suggestion to make sure that is what you want. Dreadlocks are unique and that is what makes them beautiful!

Sounds like you are more concerned with the looks of it than anything else at this point. If you go into it with that mind set you won't be happy or be in it for the long haul. Personally, I don't think you are ready. You need to do as you see fit, but I know how up and down the journey can be (14 mos. for me and my hair took 8 mos. to even have one knot...and I started with hair about your length too). I wish you well with whatever you decide but, please give it some serious thought before you move in any direction. Much love <3
