Hey this is Pete, i'm a 15 year-old boy from Finland.
I have grown dreadlocks for 7 months now.
I'm very philosophical and a person that spends alot time on thinking.
I love life, my girlfriend my family and you guys and all my friends.
I feel like i have advanced in my life so much more after dreadlocks.
Since this is my text, i wish to tell you a story that happened today.
I came home and i heard talking from inside, and i soon found it to be my aunt. My aunt first says hey, and right after she says that my dreadlocks look great. Then i said thanks. At this point i'm walking towards kitchen, and i hear my mother and her talking. My aunt asks that who has made my dreadlocks and how, and my mother answers that that's not needed, that they dread as they grow, he doesn't just brush his hair.
*At this point i am smiling*
They both come to kitchen and my aunt asks me if i can even get my hair cleaned.
And before i open my mouth, my mother answered "He keeps them very clean, don't worry " .
I feel so amazing that my explanation about clean dreads and killing myths has been working.
I just wanted to share this story to you because i know some people get negative, because of all explaining about dreadlocks, but stay POSITIVE!
It's all effecting!
I'm proud of my mother , and i love her, but i never imagined she would say that.
At this point i wanna thank all of you on this site for tips, guidance and all sorts of help, thanks SE for creating this site.
God Bless you all
And what would a introduce be without a picture.
Me at 7 months, right before going with a friend.
