At this point I do not have dreads, but this has happened before when I did. They were too short to tie back and headbands are a big no-no in rugby. And back then (last year or so) someone grabbed a small one (really small) and ripped it clean off. I was appalled by how weak my roots were. Because of the dreads?
Just wondering if anyone else has experience ripped hair. I hope no one else has, because it hurts.
