I love dreads. Apparently all the people I know who have them wash their hair so I'm assuming that makes a difference.

I LOVE all the info here on this site, but I'm still wondering if there is a place near my area (Hopewell, VA) that specialize in starting and upkeeping dreads?

If you are washing your dreadlocks the way you should then there shouldn't be anything 'dwelling' in them. That's pretty funny that a lot of people think crazy things like this. I've heard things like, "oh, people with dreadlocks can't wash their hair" or "oh that's so nasty" ......this is so untrue for most people with dreadlocks. As a matter of fact, the hair won't even "lock up" if your hair is dirty! Some people will believe any ole rumor they hear. Pretty sad really.

Maybe we need a place like that here, so if people choose to wear their hair this way, at least it is clean.
Guess what.....your hair stinks too when you've been sweating on a hot day! Instead of judging someone's hair right off the bat, you should stop and think, hmmm maybe he's been working hard today and sweating. Because you just never know.

Doesn't doing dreads damage the natural hair?
