Hey. This is my virgin lj post. I've spent most of my time here at gudu, because I've been considering dreading my hair for months now. I have a couple of questions for all you experts. :)
I have the feeling that I'm older than the average poster here. IRL, I haven't seen anyone older than college age that actually has dreads. I guess I'm wondering what your (the average dreadhead here) perception of an "older" person wearing dreads would be. I have a feeling it would be accepting, as you lot seem to be of that nature from what I've read. Not that I particularly care what people think about me--obviously, considering my potential choice of hairstyle--but I am interested. I like to think that I would be the cool soccer mom, rocking my minivan with dreads and NIN, ha ha. Or I may just be one of the biggest dorks in the world, but that's okay.
Secondly, do any of you who color use henna? I've been hennaing my hair for a couple of years now, and I really don't want to give that up. I know the standard method of application probably won't work, but I did find a way to make a gel application without any of the grit. I'm just curious if anyone does it the normal way.
Thanks for the input.
