Like everyone's said, if it makes you happy he'll accept it, since it's a decision that doesn't particularly affect anyone else, so there's no downside to it. Maybe it'll just take him a while cos it's a shock. Anyway, congrats on taking the plunge and starting your journey :) and welcome.

wow what a nice guy..

is he like that alot with other things?

He's just very set in his ways and as an 'office type' he's very sensible and probably worries what his family and friends will think of me. I get it, I really do but I'm doing something that makes me happy and I will highlight this to him should he give me any stick over it. He wasn't very supportive over my psychic development either so I kind of expected this. Still didn't stop me doing it though.

That's not cool. Sorry to hear he is putting you down like that. If it's any consolation i think they look awesome on you!! And in a couple months they will look even more awesome!!! Also i'm so envious of your perfect top-lid swoop in the "after" photo. I try every morning but can never get my shit that straight! You look beautiful : )


Thank you Rebecca :) What is a top-lid swoop? I'm from England and new to all the loc lingo, so apologies for the lack of knowledge.

That's a shame. Well, he'll have to get used to it. As they mature, they'll grow on him. If he cares about yourhappinessthen he'll suck it up and hide his dislike. You being happy is more important than his impression of you


Baba Fats, thanks to you also! He'll get over it, he'll have to!

Thanks Tara, my fellow Brit. Are there many Brits on here? I've spent a good few hours navigating my way around the site today and I am in awe of everybodies dreads and uniqueness. This site is superb!!! And the support is amazing too.
I washed my barnet today and it's fuzzed up a little bit but I quite like it. It may be a little too early yet, but I've added a few beads to my baby dreads. Just gonna sit back and let them be free now.

Thank you all again for your support. Bright blessings :)

i'm sorry you have an unsupportive partner. it seems a lot of people do (maybe we need a group for that lol). If it makes you happy he should be able to come around & be fine with it. He'll see how much you love them, & how much joy & peace they bring you.

Seems like you have the right attitude to disapproval though, "whatever it's my hair & I love it so I don't care".
Steff A Roo said:

Thank you all.

Been food shopping today and had some very funny looks. Saw a couple of people who didn't like what I've done to my hair but I don't care, it's my hair! Sent my partner a picture of me and he replied with "Ewwww" and then proceeded to ask if it is permanent. I told him yes, to which he replied "I just hope you realise it looks crap". Cheers then!

Oh well, he'll have to like it or lump it.

This site is fantastic and a great place to come when everyone is being tough on you about choosing dreads. My will power and love of dreads will win through!

Peace.


Thank you also Ixchel, can't wait to be nosey and have a look at all your dread photos :)

Welcome! We've all been, or are going through the messy stage, so I hope you find the support you need. Your dreads look fine. Over time you'll find them a great 'litmus test' to sort those who appreciate the real you from those who want you as THEY would like you to be. Good that you're sticking to your own choices. There's also groups here for people interested in psychic development.

welcome! My gf don't like dreadlocks at all, but she supports me, and this is very important to me... By the way, she is the only relative who supports me in this journey, and this is just amazing for me.

Hope that your partner will change his mind, oh, and you will have amazing locs!

No! Haha, she's not from my family [relative], i just messed my english [portuguese is my first language], sorry haha! But we plan to marry next year, we are too close in spirits... We disagree in some things [like dreadlocks, pot, hallucinogens], but respect, truth and love is what reign in our relationship.
