Hi, my name is Melody and my boy friend has dreads. I have been a lurker here for quite a while and I finally decided to join and see if you guys can help me out. The deal is, my boy has had his dreads for almost 4 years now and they're getting pretty long. They are about mid back length or maybe a little longer. The problem is that they are so long and heavy that his is beginning to thin out a lot at the roots due to the stress on his head from the dreads. I have suggested to him to go to a professional hair dresser and maybe they can tighten it up a little more and what not, but he is very stubborn to do so because he has always done his hair himself and does not want anyone elses help. His dreads are beautiful and I don't want him to cut them, but if we don't up with a better solution then he will have to cut them in order to relieve some of the weight on his head. :( I don't want my baby to go bald, but I also don't want him to have to cut his precious dreads either! Help!!!!
PS. I'll try and get some pics up in the next month or so, but I'm pretty busy!
