Life Issues Facing Dreads
I don't know if you guys have a discussion or whatever about this yet, but I really need to know the truth. See, I'm planning on having dreads for only two years, removing them the summer before college. But the problem is my parents. They're really strict with me about the littlest stuff, like my hair. I haven't been able to do anything short of cutting it all my life. I had highlights in it once and they freaked. But anyways, my parents are waging war against me and my decision to get dreads. I really want them before I go to college.My aunt-in-law who is a self proclaimed hair specialist or whatever, told my mom that dreads have to be cut off to get rid of them. And that you'll lose a third of your hair volume. And I have really thin and fragile hair. So basically my parents are worried that I'll ruin my hair beyond recognition.Oh, and my aunt-in-law also said that it changes your hair texture. I have really wavy-ish hair.How can I convince my parents that dreads are a safe and natural hairstyle that isn't any different than say, getting extensions? Or are they really bad for tyour hair?
