I'm 20, Naturally Brunette & blonde highlights, light blue eyes, freckles For years I've always loved dreads and the earthy down to roots vibe like Anna April but because of where i live people tell me not to get dreads bc im white... tbh i think dreads look amazing on every race and hair really has no boundries no matter what race you are. Im debating if i should get them or not i did tempoary ones and i loved them i just dont want to offend anyone in any way.
People who claim locks are a Jamaican thing are severely uncultured and historically illiterate since A) locks are naturally occurring function of hair and B) Even during the Roman era there were documented cases of Indians and Germanic tribes (both groups who aren't black) who wore locks.
Anyone who gets offended should be more offended at their own ignorance and should pick up a fucking book.
I always thought dread looked gorgeous on white hippy or goth looking chicks. You have to know how to work it though, I see a lot of weirdos who just look frumpy and take it too far like "I only wash in the creek and use picked flowers as shampoo" like no.
I've seen lots of white people with dreads lol. Mostly hippies. It can look pretty cool. The only thing about dreads are that they're totally different kind of style and you can't get them out when you want to change your hair again.
