I've decided to get dreads, despite my boyfriend's worries that I'll look bad. And the possibility probability that his parents will tease me about it constantly. I have one concern though. I live in Massachusetts and we have damn cold winters here. I've always loved how my hair keeps my neck warm. Will dreads have the same insulating effect? I have pretty thick hair, and I'm planning on making my dreads on the thinner side, if that matters. Thank you!!!
