So glad to have found this site! Been loving dreadlocks for years since I was a teen but never got round to doing anything about it. Am now in a place in my life where it seems the most natural thing to do. I guess at 39 I've still got lots of dready years ahead of me - hope they'll grow nice and long before I go grey! Loved this site so much and really feel part of a community, which may be the reason I approached a complete stranger in a shop the other day. "Are you growing dreadlocks?" It looked like it to me - the early stage, and she's a bit hippyish. Her reply was no, but she has ones she puts in sometimes..and she thinks you have to twist them and use wax to make dreads...aargh!!! the ignorance!! I can understand people using the different methods, but it's a shame when people don't realise how simple it is.
Anyway..I'll stop wobbling now..and just enjoy the journey. xx
