I've been seeing a lot of people with dreads lately. I went to Ikea, and there was these two women with really long dreads. One woman was really pretty, she had hers all tied up... I was trying not stare, I swear. :D And the other day, I was in the mall, and there was a boy and a girl with dreads. They looked related... the guy had his in a hat and the girl had on one of those trucker hats with her dreads hanging down... they looked so pretty!
My biggest problem with my hair is that it's uber processed to get it straight... I hate how when the perm dies out, my hair gets all poofy again and doesn't lay straight -- that's part of the reason why I want dreads. The other reason is that they just look frickin' awesome.
I've pretty much heard that to get your dreads, you need to cut off all your permed hair. This makes me sad, because my hair is a little past my shoulders... is there no one you can get your hair to dread up if it's permed? If not, well... I've got two years to grow in some natural hair. xD
