Debating on if I should get dreads or not..?
Hi there, well, your profile pic is certainly not you. I would maybe change it because African American hair requires somewhat different maintenance and you may get the wrong info for your Caucasian hair.
First off, let me say that I too also admired dreads for longer than I can remember. Wish I started a gazillion years ago, but at the age of 49 I did start. Don't me be, if you love them, go for it. If you go the natural route then you can always take them out if they are really not for you. Yep, you can take them out with lots of conditioner and a few days of time. So there is turning back, no problem there. Chicks love dreads (if your into girls, sorry, don't know), they are like carrying a puppy, such an attraction. So that is a bonus right there.
You can rock them, I saw your pic, go for it, you have nothing to loose. Just go the natural way so that you can take them out if you change your mind.
