Too old for dreads??????
I'm not yet 40 but I'm a thirty something with dreams of silver dreads down to my knee's when Im 80. I'm from a small conservative town and we am a farm girl. We do gardens chickens and rabbits. My whole family is conservative it may take a long while to get use too but they will get use too it. I find they feel the most comfortable when they can see my hair wet and watch me maintain it. It sets them at ease to know they are clean. I don't know if that will help.. I definitely feel age doesn't matter dreading is personality appropriate and how much more perfect could it be then for a garden lovin' dirt worshiper! Just remember everyone has an opinion and the only thing that matters is that you love it.
