    I'm sure this question gets tiresome but I would really like to try them out.
    The main question is if they would look good. They most certainly would fit my personality.

    Pretty much anyone can pull off dreads.

    Yeah. If you're going to go for it, I think you have to understand it's not so much about looking good as it is a lot of the other things that go along with dreads. But on a side note, yeah, I think you'd look pretty cool with them.

    After having done some reading, whether or not they look good, I can't decide if they would be appropriate or not.

    I'd definitely say they were. But it's really a choice you have to make.

    Alright I think I'll do it. There's a lot of controversy on various forums about whether or not dreads are appropriate on white people. (Jamaican slave ships, rastas etc.). But dreads were around long before any of that was around, and I feel that people should take whatever meaning out of their dreads that they feel is right. It wouldn't be a fashion statement for me at all... it would be very spiritual.

    Thanks for the support!

    Dreads really do look great on anyone, but you should probably think about how they might affect your surroundings. Im still growing my hair out, and i get all this flack about looking like a hippy and i need to cut my hair. Like you said, its not about fashion, its a lifestyle.

    Yeah. They're definitely appropriate, especially in the case that you're doing it for the right reason, as it appears that you are :)

    Good luck on your journey. And you should definitely consider posting a picture journal. I'm curious to see how they'll turn out. I think they'll look pretty good :)
  13. Just be sure to take into account your surroundings. This might not be the time in your life for them. Also what do you do and what are you around? That will help you choose between sectioning and comb coiling or what have you and the "natural" method.
