Do they even have maintenance?
Like…do they re-twist their dreads on a regular basis?
I know they don’t wash them (ew).
Do they ever acknowledge the disappointed glances from their parents?
And apparently they palm roll to form them.
Doesn’t that lead to breakage? And how do you keep them…
I wash my dreads every 2 weeks, no one likes smelly dreads! I use a crochet hook to dread my roots and I do the root rub. I don’t think palm rolling really works.
are you seriously trying to justify yourself to this fuckhead? he is making a joke of you.
I’d rather just let it go.. He’s a joke himself! Bit of an idiot really, should do his research before coming out with aload of bullshit…
What kind of research would you like me to do? Cause I already have my notes right in front of me sweetpea.
Are we going to discuss how the type of dreads white people have are appropriative of Black Americans/Jamaicans?
Are we going to discuss how often more times than not these same white people try and back up their appropriative actions by claiming that Celtics/Druids/Insert-other-randomg-white-ethinicities had a history of dreadlocks, despite that the fact that the matted style of these European ethnicities literally looked nothing like what white people today are going for?
Are we going to discuss how the term Dreadlocks was used to specifically describe the hair of Black slaves.
Are we going to discuss that simply based on the method of creation, the methods of upkeep, the potential cultural differences, the potential consequences for Black Americans wearing their hair naturally, that comparing the two is borderline unethical?
Is this a conversation you’re prepared to have or are you and your friend Felicia over there just gonna blow static noise through those thin-lipped excuses for what your people refer to as mouths?
Cause I originally posted this as a joke but you sound like you wanna square up, and I’m more than happy to oblige.
