is there any alternative to getting around their rules? i mean, my parents don't hate the look.....errr i dunno. my dad doesn't want me to ruin my hair, hes out for the health side of things. and my mother is just weird, she doesn't like how they look yet she doesn't care that i dress 'funny'. i want you people to help me bribe them that they are normal everyday hairstyles. spiritual reasons, handling reasons, ect.... something for me to be dedicated to, blah blah blah. it all varies. i want to know why YOU have dreadlocks. why YOUR parents let you have them. and if i got them anyways, would they come out? i've dreaded some sections of my hair but its gotten combed out before....sucks. =P so if you people can reply i'll appreciate it!
