I deffinitly have realized that it is a way of life and you eigther live it love it or it is not for you . I love my locks and I believe that It can be so sexy. Just like if you do not take care of yourself than that is not sexy or just plain dirty. What is your opinion on the idea of a man or woman with beautiful locks ?? Attractive ? Not your style? Don't understand them or are not educated on the idea? Just a question.
For the most part, I think that dredlocks look dirty. I know that they can't be washed regularly, so I'm assuming they probably are. I can't get over that, however, I feel that they just look good on some people. I prefered Lenny Kravitz with locks and have a friend who looked much better with them than without.
It depends on the person as most hairstyles do, but at least they are not made using fecal matter anymore!
Properly tended and well managed dreadlocks are incredibly sexy. But it depends on the hair, the facial structure and the person as to whether they look grotty, spindly or dirty. To generalize all dreadlocks as looking dirty is insulting.
Don't take it personally Xenonlit. I still think dredlocks tend to look dirty and because it's not an easy hairstyle to upkeep, they tend to get dirty. You have every right to disagree, but Indi was asking for opinions and I gave mine.
Do I think all dredlocks are dirty and ugly. Absolutely not and if you read my answer you would know that. I prefer Lenny Kravitz with them and could not see any Marley without them. My friend has them and though I knew her first without the dreds, I prefer her with them. She has that look and boho style and they just fits so well with dreds.
But, since I can't specifcally say about one person or another, I must generalize that I don't care for them as a whole and they still look drty to me. And this is knowing full well that my friend keeps her dreds well tended and she's not dirty. They still look dirty, in my opinion, and are difficult to maintain.
