Me in dreadlocks, should I do it?

If i did I'd hav them to go about this length, but theyd be more in order.



Heres pics of me currently



i have more hair than it looks, heres my actuall length approximately



so what do you guys think? It'd be something different for me and may make me look a little older as well (Im 18 BTW, I know I look like 14)

As long as you don't make them ridiculously long, I don't see a problem.

My 'fro is bigger
[my pictures are old, you cant tell from them.]

i was actually thinking of getting twists though
because i've ben told that the only way to get rid of dreads
is to shave your head.

and i havent had a haircut since november.
#14
Go for it. I might try to grow dreads but I have a dandruff problem so I until I get rid of that problem I can't let my hair grow too much.

Hmm... grow it out a little longer. There's a kid in my marching band that has the perfect length. (Right above the shoulders, and he wears a stretchy headband thing.)

Why are you asking us? If you want dreads, DOOO EEETTT! It don't want dreads... don't.

Me, I cut my hair when it gets longer than 3/4ths of an inch and shampoo it. That's all the time and energy I care to invest in it. Dreads sound like... work. I wouldn't.

My problem is, my hair like stopped growing since like august (i havent cut since may, when I was bald.), I heard that if i get short dreads, they'd grow out again, so yeah.

I said nay because I didn't look at your pic and assumed you'd be white and whenever I see a white person with dreads they always look dirty. I should have voted yay though because black people wear the dreadlocks much better.
#22
Yes, dreads are badass.

A drunk guy on the the bus asked me if i remembered the 60's. I told him i was 17 then he told me that everyone remembers the 60's.

I thought about it, and frankly, I couldn't fault his logic.

Your hair is a mass of protein and water. It's dead. Nothing you do to the hair itself will make it grow faster. That's controlled by the hair follicles. If you are eating reasonably healthy, aren't over-stressed, or over-medicated, your hair is growing as fast as it ever will.

it may not be that it isnt growing persay, but its more like breaking off as it grows.

That may be why getting the dreads would induce regrowth, because right now, all im doing to my hair is shampooing daily and using an afro comb. The shampoo could be screwing the growth up

Is that so bad? Because I think pretty much every white person associates latino with Ricky Martin. I'd rather be forgotten.

I'm not so sure man the hair is a bit short but since you say your having trouble growing it, you might as well go for the dreads anyways.


And anyone who hates the white people dreads i have some friends who are squatters and they have the nastiest dreads you can imagine.

yes, get dreads

Black people with dreads = hell yes! I've been trying to convince my drummer forever.
White people with dreads = not so much.

Except my girlfriend put a few in her hair a few days ago (just a few, not all over, thank God) and could pull it off surprisingly well...hm...

The point of this post: if I were black, I would have dreads in an instant.
