I'm sorry that this is only a text post, I wish I had some lovely dready pictures to share with you all, but I've yet to start my own. Mods feel free to remove this, if you feel the need too.

It's the long Easter weekend, everything is closed, and I have nothing to do with myself since I don't spend most of the weekend at church events like other do... so it gives me a lot of spare time to think. So thats what I'm doing.

I wonder... what it is... that makes dreadlocks so damn appealing. I have been fascinated with dreadlocks for many years, and wanted to have my own when I was 14, but due to my mothers massive aversion to "looking like a greasy dirty birds nest", I decided to stay an admirer until I was ready to have my own. I'm almost 21 now, and I'm growing out my short hair to start my own lovely locks and when I tell people, they say "WHY?! Your hair is already so beautiful!?". So I asked myself.. why? And I can't really give myself an answer. Because to me they represent freedom? And discipline? Finding beauty in something not so obvious? A journey? Like watching a child grow? Because I just like them. I do.

Why do you love your dreads? And for those of you like me, who don't have their own yet, why do you love them so much you want your own?
