Comments on my dreads- Mostly positive

By: Sammie Haider
Posted in:

I was wondering what kind of comments everyone has gotten about their dreads. I usually get a comment every time I go out in public. Sometimes, maybe 2-5 comments in a day! Mostly are positive like, "I love your hair!" or "Sweet dreads!". I noticed I get negative attention when I go to hair salons. I work in a group home so I take my clients to get their hair cut from time to time. Today I went to a salon and my clients beautician asked me how long I had been dreading. I told her I had been dreading for about a year and a half. She gives me this smirk and says "Have you ever gotten them redone?" I was confused for a minute, then I remembered I was in a hair salon where people go to get their hair dreaded. I laughed and I told her that all I needed to do was to throw away my hairbrush and my hair products and use baking soda washes with essential oils. The conversation ended very awkwardly. I wish everyone knew the truth about dreads. I am not dirty and I do not live under a rock. So whenever I get negative comments or looks I try to change the view of the ignorant ones. I can proudly say I have changed some negative views on natty dreads!

That is awesome! I live in North Dakota where most are used to seeing "Normal Heads" so I get a lot of stares, especially from elderly men. It's nice to be different. I am my own person and nobody can have hair exactly like mine! Every dread is unique(:

I've had mainly nice comments too "sweet hair, sweet dreads"
Ive gotten the wierd ones too, are those real? Is that your hair?
are they extensions.. Etc.. I had like an 85year old man (like OLD lol)
once ask me how i curled my hair so,
I told him there not curls and proceeded to walk closer to him and show them upclose.
I explained that they were really just lots and lots of little knots :) I really had to explain them to him, he seemed rather confused just looking at them lol.
He told me that I was beautiful for looking different, and the world needed people to be themselves no matter what. It was really great getting such a nice compliment from such a person who had lived through so many generations ( and prolly some judgmental ones at that)

I love it when people glare or whisper. I love my dreads so much I could care less about what other people think.

And my dreads change every day. If your's are only six months there is a lot of magic to keep happening! I am about a year and a half and I'm still amazed of how they can mature and change like that!

Some nights I wear a wool tam to bed and that really helps.

I haven't had any comments from random people yet but about 3 weeks after I stopped brushing my elder daughter asked me if I'd backcombed my hair lol.
