oh the guy with the longest dread (yes i said guy not that girl that wanted attention so got herself in guiness then they retired the caregory) hes actualy in guiness for worlds longest hair had 1 massive superlong dread he was a simple farmer in vietnam who got real sick once riught after cutting his hair so decided to never cut it again
when guiness heard about him and came out to measure he simply said "really? people care about such silly things?
to him it was really no big deal
he was just a humble farmeer whos hair grew tpoo long and heavy to alow him to farm so he picked fruits instead

I agree with the Barrellady. All the beautiful crazy wild short dreads all the way to the 23 years old drag on the ground long dreads!!! They are all an inspiration. :D

My inspiration for dreading was all of the people I have seen and met over the years who has dreadlocks. Every one of them had a beautiful soul....peace
some of my inspirations on this very own site are PRINCENOOBSAUCE, DAVID ALGER, CASTAWAY J, TREE OF DREAD, SILLY WALKING MINISTER, MATTED DEW, RAS JATA, NATURE.... AND SOARING EAGLE !!!
These are just names... actually all of us here are inspirations for me.. their dreads and positive energy is so inspirational.
Alborosie, Soaring Eagle, Ras Jata, PrinceNoobSauce, Taye, Jesus Freed My Soul. All the people on the site sharing their journey with us inspire me, but the names I mentioned just give me this, "WOW, that's where I want to be eventually" feel, so deserved a mention. Alborosie, I got into his music and saw his dreads and decided I'd love to have dreads, so that was the catalyst.
I grew up in a small town in the woods of the province of Quebec and dreadlocks were something we never encountered "live", so my first inspirations were musicians I liked, like Tracy Chapman, Erykah Badu and India Arie. Then someday, after moving to Montreal to study, I met the Grand Antonio, an approximatly homeless, extremely strong, legendary man here. He had this long, massive, unique dreadlock and was using it as a walking stick. I thought this was absolutely amazing and wanted to meet him again, but he died not long after that. Then I moved to Quebec city and there was this old guy, walking all day long on the streets with his long dreadlocks and his colorful tam hat. I never talked to him, but I liked watching him, and sometimes vaguely following him just to watch his dreadlocks.
Then I felt ready to grow dreadlocks myself and searched the web alot about this. This is were I discovered Tara Wagner aka The Organic Sister and her beautiful hair. She has now shaved her head, but she is still one of my most powerful inspiration. There is this beautiful Danish girl nammed Anna April, and this other absolutely amazing human being called Kimber aka TheKrazyHippie (I think she has and account here) wich made me totally fall in love with going natural.
And I met you all here, and everyday I found myself beeing blessed to be a part of your so so so inspiring community. Every journey or yours is so interesting and make me feel like I want to know more about it, about you, about dreadlocks and about myself. Love to all of you xxxxx
