you know, i really don't mind people touching my dreads. in fact i sorta like it. i love having my dreads played with or worked on by other people. it feels good on my scalp and is pretty relaxing and soothing. i guess it stems back to when i was a little girl and my mom would stroke small strands of my hair. it felt so good, it sent chills down my spine. so yeah, there's my story and i'm stickin to it.
