Dreadlocks on a child...

Posted by   + Show Post
I'm thinking of letting my 2 year old's hair lock...it naturally starts locking up immediately if I don't brush it at least twice a day...so I'm just going to let it go...

Any tips?

Would you let your child have dreadlocks?

Sorry-your kid is white and 3 and you want to let it lock just cuz you're being to lazy to take care of it. NO-just no.

I don't normally point out grammatical errors. But, you're being rude for no reason. It's ew not ewe. Derp.


Quoting Melissa_4:

Ewe, no way!  First of all, why would you not brush your child's hair for two freaking days?  Second, if you want to be lazy, get her hair cut short.  *SMDH at how lazy some people are!*

Hmmm, I'm a loose natural but if my daughter's said they wanted dreds I would let them.

Yeah, see, if my kid wanted them and they weren't too hard then yeah. I had a friend in high school who would get into drop down fights with his parents over his hair and he now does not talk to them over it.

Quoting Batmansmamma:

If dreads smell it's from neglect or ignorance.


Quoting Jade_Lufercus:

I don't know, the one guy I knew that had dredlocks always smelled funny. Unless he did it wrong.

Not unless the were old enough to take care of it. I don't personally like that style.
