I cut my 12 year old dreads off around December or November. I didn't let them all go as in I'm wearing a dreadmullet, which can be seen here. The reason for the trim were personal, not for society or even my dislike. I chose to let go of what I love on myself too much.
I'd like to thank everyone who answered the call. It would have been nice to get more to answer. As in I missed all the drama, but saw the after effects. Seem like it took a toll on people's soul. By asking you to post your whys, I wanted each of us to reaffirm, tell something about yourself and let a respect grow from that. We all aren't the same as you can tell from the pictures of everyones beautiful hair here.
I once stated that dreading was like taking a trip.
Some people Fly
Some people Drive
Some people Walk
Some people Bus
Doesn't matter how you got there, as long as you enjoyed the sights and that you're happy with travel time it took to get where you wanted to go.
I don't post here alot. I don't have wax issues, or answers. I did it the easy way. Let that nest curl up on it's own. It's the only way I know.
Ja Bless, and Thank you
