I am kind of asking this to the guys that do not mind other guys, anyone can answer. What do you think are dreads a turn off in hookin up with you, basically what do all of you think?

    Personally for me, dreds only look good on a very select few people - usually black guys. If they are well kept and you keep them clean then you're doing the best you can.

    For some reason, I was never even the dread thing. However, I do agree that some people could pull it off.

    They are hot on SOME guys, other guys who try to do them in my book look better with just thin braids for some reason. No clue why but thats me.

    Dreads seem to work for some black guys.

    Sorry, I'm a girl but I couldn't resist answering. :redface: Male, female, black or white I do not care for dreadlocks. Actually I deplore them on white people as it just makes them look like lame wannabes IMO.

    Then again I am notoriously conservative. To me dreadlocks seem to scream: I have no desire to ever have a pension plan, 401K, new car, or a job that doesn't require a name tag or uniform.

    That said, I had a neighbor in NJ whose brother is a very successful lawyer . . . in Jamaica. :cool: Call me a purist, but unless you are a true Rastafaarian, what's the point?

    Notoriously, indeed. You make anybody who is not materialistically ambitious or antithetical to the American military-industrial complex seem terrible. Ghey.

    That said, I think dreads are fucking sexy. So long as you're using your wax, and it doesn't smell like roadkill. I think I'm notoriously liberal, though, and anybody who gives any remote semblance of a 'Bohemian' edge totally turns me on.

    Only very few people look good with dreadlocks.

    I'm not a fan of them. Like NJ said, they make people look like they don't want to be taken serious in life. I'm sure you do want to be taken seriously, but I'm just giving my opinion.

    If you look good in them...keep them, otherwise...go for another haircut. I'm sure there are plenty that look good on you.

    NJ: A white man's hair will dread up naturally as well, ya know... Certainly, Jamaican men aren't the only group of people who've had dreadlocked hair, so why should it ONLY be acceptable for them to wear it? Everyone I've known to dread their hair has had their own individual reason for doing so. You're just another fool bringing stereotypes and hate.

    As a guy who's had long hair for the past 13 years, I'd say all ya'll with shit to say about a person's hair reflecting their ambition and their drive to succeed are the real losers. Why don't we all just clone you guys and live the same boring ass lives as each other.

    OP: Fuck the real wannabes, dude. Grow ya damn hair.

    I've never seen the appeal behind them, and quite frankly don't understand even with the etomology why having them. I mean, don't those dreads get to be too unkempt and unclean if you don't take care of them?

    And to the point of white people mimicing the style, I don't see how they look good. I mean, didn't the Counting Crows frontman wear some sort of dreads in his heyday?

    Long time reader, first time posting?


    Personally, I agree that there are a slim minority of people who can make dreads look classy. Most guys end up looking too thuggish or derelict.

    Unfortunately, most black hair trends fail to translate to other ethnicities with the same sort of penache (case and point)but I'm sure there are some non-black people who can carry out dreads without looking like an extra from a Wayans brother's movie.

    Njqt466, I couldn't resist responding to you. I can totally understand where you are coming from because my mother and Grandmother had the same issue when I decided to grow dreads. I'm about to be a college Graduate from Georgetown University, a pretty much white school. At least for me I think my dreads make a statement that I'm not trying to conform, that even if you can get past me looking black and think I "fit in" you would see my dreads and that will remind you that I'm not trying to fit in. Most people would see me and think that I go to Howard University instead of Georgetown, and I'm fine with that. If people can only accept me for who they think I am and not for who I am then I don't think I should be bother with those type of people in the first place. People are different, and me having dreads doesn't say anything more about my intelligence or background anymore than how a poor person looks on the street.

    Njqt466, I'm not attacking you in anyway rather just providing a personal rational for why I have my dreads. With that said, I do think if you take care of them and keep them looking nice that can be hot (both my grandmother and mother now agree that I look good in them) and it is a great feeling to get your hair pulled too sometimes, something you miss out on having a low cut or being balled.

    I think they can make some white guys look nasty hot. Especially on lighter hair. A dark blonde, pierced tongued bi boy bike courier here had dreds and I wanted his milk shake in the worst way possible!

    I personally don't think they look good, on anyone. No matter how "clean" they are, I think it's a sign of being lazy. You don't want to brush your hair, you get dreds.

    I've always wondered if you aren't black how do you grow dread locks? I've always wanted to have some.

    I've seen other white guys with dreads like the Counting Crows guy but don't know how they actually get them started.
