This may seem kinda stupid, but it's not to me. Dreadlocks are a beautiful, NATURAL, wonderful thing...... I am just wondering why are people so fixed on the fashion statement of dreads? Every dreadie i have met in the past 10 years, (except maybe 10) a couple hundred, if not more, have made their dreadlocks, and insist that their hair would not have dreaded naturally.....well anyone's hair will dread naturally, you just have to be patient! It is something that forms as individually and unique as you are yourself. Dreads also help capture the energy of people, and it sort of stays around your head giving you the ablility to read their energy for a longer period of time, getting a clearer picture. Are my hubby and I the only ones left that didn't out wax or any other type of yucky stuff in their hair to get dreadlocks? All they need is time .....mine took 2 years before it even started.....all you do is stop combing or brushing your hair!!!!!!!!!!!! There are alot of myths about dreads too.....you don't need to quit washing your hair, as a lot of people seem to think you do......but once they form you might not want to wash it as often as some people do ( every other day) because you'll end up with dread rot, and a head smelling of moldy, musty, yuckiness. Just wanted to hear other people's opinions on the subject....sorry if i sound stupid.
