My son is in the fourth grade. He's had his dreads for over three years now. He still gets teased at school. Called a girl, etc. Funny about that, though, because the girls LOVE his hair. All ages. My problem, because it's not really his problem, is he won't wear it in any style other than down and in his face and I want to see his face, eh? I don't bug him about it the way my dad always bugged me about hair in my face, but still, he's my adorable son. Every so often he'll wear a headband as in this picture, but again, he doesn't want to look like a girl. So, any manly suggestions for what we can do with his hair? We actually cut some dread bangs a year ago, but he wants to grow them out now.
