Oh no there is no pressure at my church but I feel that becaus they accept me the way I am that I should try my best to look put together. One lady at my church complimented me yesterday so that made me feel real good!!!oh and I've been thinking about this a while and my babies tent to be a little flat so using the iron might make them even flatter. I think I'll stay away from it.. At least until my dreads are more mature Alden said:

My primary concern is that it may solidify the knots and kinks in the dread, causing the dread to 'look' more mature, but it may keep straight hair (within the dread) straight and not allow it to knot up.Wow this is really interesting. I have an old flat iron at home that doesn't really heat up too much that I guess I could use every once in a while. I have been trying to find a way to make my hair look a little decent for church at least
Besides, God loves you regardless of what you look like, and if the pressure to control fuzzies is from other church go-ers then let God handle their intolerance, you just be you sister.
