so i have these 3 dreads in the back that are beginning to grow together. i've thought about cutting them apart, but once i think about it, just letting them do their thing will also be nice...i have like 3 other dreads that "got married," and i let them do that, but i've never had dreads decide to do a threesome before. it'll be a pretty big dread i guess. does anyone else just let their dreads grow together if that's what it looks like they want? or do you usually just cut/rip them apart? these three are beyone the "rip them apart" stage, the bond is pretty strong. haha aww, they love each other. maybe i'll let them become one. hahaha.
i went through another phase of wanting to cut them off, but i'm so glad i never follow through because,,,i love them, i love what they mean to me, i cant forget what they mean to me, and the reasons i want to cut them off are usually shallow, unimportant, "i want to be a pretty-girl" reasons. first of all, today's popular beauty standards are something i should not care to live up to, second of all, dreads are beautiful. and i love the fact that fellow dreadies are like part of your family, or something.
with love for the people in this community, you guys rock.
