Because I hated my hair, SOOO much. I would cry about it, cut it, dye it, let it be natural, and hide it. I couldn’t do anything right with it. I tried so many things to make it less flat, less oily, more beautiful. I could not learn to love it. Plus, I was born with sort of a shit color of hair, and ashy broken brown. I died it black, and that didn’t do any good for it, and I have always resorted to putting it up.
I was on YouTube one day though, and found a blogger that had dreads, and then did research for a month, and then just did it. I made sure I knew everything and anything that the internet would tell me. I did it right, and my dreads look wonderful. (I have such thin and oily straight hair though it is just taking forever.) I love the volume, how easy upkeep is, and how unique it is. I get horrid looks, and a lot of shit about it. (My mother called me disgusting, and she has not even seen me yet.) I love it though, and I am sticking with i. Not being popular and not fitting in will not sway me. 🙂 I say, that it can be an amazing option. My younger sister wants a dread or two at the base of her head so she can put pretty wraps in. You dont have to go all the way.
