Dreadlock Pictures...
    #1821937 - 08/17/03 04:41 AM (18 years, 2 months ago)

I'm concidering getting dreadlocks. My girlfriend is being really supportive of the idea which I find really amazing. The thing is most of the pictures she's seen of white people with dreadlocks are of people with not so well kept and not so nice looking dreads and it makes her kind of nervous. I've only been able to find a few good pictures to reassure her. I was wondering if anyone had any pictures of white people with nice looking well kept dreads that you could post. Here's some pics that I have that I think look good.





Thanks a lot.

Also on a side note I think this is my hundreth post...

it aint easy. you won't get them like blacks. make sure you do it the correct way. buy some dread wax. no home made shit. My brother has them. don't think your going to be able to wash your hair every day. once a week at most. they hold water.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! DIE DREADLOCKS DIE!!!

I know you may -think- it looks cool, but it looks terrible and unclean. It's a hassle, it's high maintenance, and white people look AWFUL in it.

Here's a recent rant about them by Jim Goad:

- Trustafarian Vibration -

The albino tarantulas crawl through Southeast Portland, using their trust funds to emulate poverty. Jah good. Jah love dem. Jah make dem feel irie. Jah know dat if dey walk two blocks out de tourist section of Kingston, dey get dey white brains blasted onto de cracked sidewalk.

Dreadlocks?the ugliest hair style ever known?look like clusters of dried dog poop. Reggae?the worst musical format ever invented?sounds like a rusty toilet which has trouble flushing. But if you're sitting in the squalor of Jamaica, at least these things have some resonance for you. On the other hand, if you're walking around the Pacific Northwest in a Vanilla Marley costume, you just look like a douche. Suicidal Caucasian insanity has reached the point where "authenticity" is only achieved by absurdly INAUTHENTIC fashion maneuvers.

There's a reason the Third World came in third."

I love that end quote.

dreds are good when they are a manifestation of a persons spirituality, not as a transient "fashion". I think alot of white people's dreds are nasty though... YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO KEEP DREDS CLEAN! just no conditioner. lotsa soap, no comb. of course, this won't work if you're 100% white.. so... I guess white people use wax? does this really work?

I had every intension of keeping them clean, and I know there is quite a bit of maintanance to them. I wasn't wanting them to somehow look cool or trendy, as most people I know don't find them that attractive. I just feel they fit me. I'm very familiar with the process I wasn't really looking for anyone to inform me about how it goes. My hair is fairly curly and tangles far too easily so I'm not really worried about it working, actually if I leave my hair to do it's thing it kind of goes towards dreads anyway, which is kind of a pain when you're not trying for dreads. Oh course the neglect method wasn't the route I was planning on taking. Still almost no one has posted any pics, anyone else have any? Thanks a lot to everyone though.

You'll find good pictures and good all natural dread care products at www.knottyboy.com.

i've had mine for two years and they're clean, soft, they smell pretty, and everyday i love'm just a little bit more...  i haven't run across much bad sentiment in my neck of the woods (twin cities) except for dissaproving sighs from family members and maybe Malachi's post :wink:.

I'm without pics, but I've had dreds for over a year and I'm pretty happy with em. I put up with a lot of Sideshow Bob shit and the occasional Drive-By Yelling, but thats small-town life for you. They're no more a pain in the ass than my 'normal' hair was. I never used wax, but my hair tangles like a bitch anyway, so when I decided to dred I just kept my tangles seperate and worked on em whenever I had a spare moment.

Ive had dread twice...Once disgusting shitlocks made with wax that were just a greasy wax...

and once...

With about a 100 hours of rubbing my head with wool and tangling it...this actually made pretty nicely defined dreadlocks, unfortuneately they had to be cut off due to brain testing at the hospital.

Ive just recently shaved my head off and let it grow back in natural...and have been thinking about letting it grow shoulder length and starting dread's again...there is a really cute white couple around here with SUPER nice dreadlocks..a real inspiration.
Make sure this is something your commited to putting alot of work into for alot of year's and taking alot of guff about them first, or itll make that first 6 months seem completely pointless when you chop off your mediocre mess.

hard to see how something that requires years of commitment to do right could be considered trendy.  trends come and go with the seasons.  good dreadies stick around.

if anything, dreads are almost an anti-fasion for me.  i'm not saying i don't like the way they look, but i know that they identify me as "unconventional."  i don't eat meat, i believe in the value of entheogens, i do my best to act in an environmentally responsible manner, and i consider myself to be spiritual, but not in any conventional sort of way.  most of the people i know who knot their hair have similar beliefs.  dreads aren't trendy, but the sub-population who wear them is growing in response to the rampant crappification of our world.

The albino tarantulas crawl through Southeast Portland, using their trust funds to emulate poverty. Jah good. Jah love dem. Jah make dem feel irie. Jah know dat if dey walk two blocks out de tourist section of Kingston, dey get dey white brains blasted onto de cracked sidewalk.

that is the funniest thing I have heard in a while. This itself is a different quote, right?

@brainfarmer and Hooty:

I think dreads on white people look halarious, and whenever I see a white person with (obviuosly laboured over) dreads, I laugh with no qualms about them hearing me, becuse most of the time they are all off of some hippy-vegan-pacifist-whatever-eastern-religon-or-philosophy-their-hippy-freinds-tell-them-about thing.

But you dont care, and most likely see me laughing as further proving your point about how "sub-population" you are.

just one thing:

"if anything, dreads are almost an anti-fasion for me. i'm not saying i don't like the way they look, but i know that they identify me as 'unconventional.' "

so, you dont like they way they look, but wear them anyway, becuase it helps you fit into a clique?

how subversive.

My attraction to dreads has nothing to do with trying to be "sub-population". I don't really dig breaking people up like that, I just have a natural fondness for them. They do make a certain statement, but that's not necissarily the only reason I'm interested in them. And domite you obviously misread brain farmers post, he said "i'm not saying i don't like the way they look..." Meaning he does...

anyone who would go out of their way to "make" dreads is just rediculous. They should form naturally from not combing your hair, plain and simple. They are the most low-maintanance hair style, considering, thats how they form...no maintanance. The back of my head used to be all dreads, and i had to run fingers through the front of my hair so that my whole head would not dread. Wake up, slap on a bandana, and your set, hell sometimes you can even wake up with a bandana on. christ you guys talk of dreads, is really foolish. And i dont think most people have dreads to look "cool" eeeh your talk sickens me, after reading this, im glad i cut mine off last weekend.

I agree with you but if you walk through a Jamband parking lot or some other neo-psuedo-hippie hang out you will see plenty of high maintence fashion type dreadies. They will be the onces in store bought patchwork. Can't miss them they are everywhere, I can understand people giving them hell, they aren't any different than the fashion fags who shop at Abercrombie and Fitch and places like that.

Also why would you care what people thnk?

now THAT is ridiculous. without a little bit of TLC you end up with essentially a matted rats nest on your head. there's no shame in providing nature with a little order. would you really try to farm without taking the time to plant your crops in rows? no wonder you cut them/it off.

just because they look nice and neat doesn't mean they're "store bought".  mine were initially sectioned/started by one of my closest friends.  since then i work on them about once a month or so to keep them tight and separate.  it's hard work too, but i wouldn't even consider letting anyone else do it, especially for money.  they are a very personal thing; they're attatched to my head, for god's sake!

btw- i don't like jambands in the slightest.

All thoes who think dreads are unclean and stink are fucking retarded when your hair is dreaded it grows much faster that means it is much healthier my dreads never smell and they auctally smell pretty good from the dread shampoo (shampoo with no conditioners) all you have to do is WASH them people think you can't wash dreads another group of dumbasses dreads are just another hairstyle unless you have some belifes backing them and I am not just talking about rastas.....

For all you white people out there it will be much harder for you to have nice clean dreads but you can do it just try not to sweat like an animal during the begining of locking and if you do play soccer or some other crap just run water through your hair while you in the shower wa-la, you can also hold a non=condition bar soap above your head and let the water take it through your hairs then simply wash i tout no rubbing involved

Yeah man, people love to talk about things they know nothing of. This thread has inspired me to dread my hair up again. Fuck the haters and their attempts to assimilate everyone.

DreadheadHQ has some good information to elaborate on what PIMPtheSYSTEM said.

My brother has dreads, but I can't get a pic because he's away.

I think they look good. They started off as the "neglect" kind - a few hours of surfing everyday, and the sand and salt water basically ruined his hair and it got all matted and nasty. But then he did a bit of maintenance, and now they look alright. He just broke up a few of the big dreads, and combined a few of the smaller dreads so that they're all about the same size. They don't look dirty and neglected, but neither do they look too even and artificial.

There really isn't any problem with white people having dread locks, I don't hear people screaming about how it's not authentic baldness when somewhen shaves their head, so it's ridiculous to claim that having dreads is inauthentic. As long as they don't claim to be rastafarian just because they're wearing dreads it's fine.

Lots of people say they've never seen good looking dreads on white people, but that's just a matter of opinion. Sometimes it looks okay, sometimes it doesn't.

Also, there's no special way you're supposed to behave if you've got dreads. You could be the CEO of a major corporation, and be just as entitled to having dreads as some dude from Kingston. When it comes down to it, it's a hairstyle, nothing more.

Dreads can smell bad.. Its a cold hard fact. Think of dreads as sponges. If you get them wet they wont dry out for a day. So washing your hair every other day is a bad idea. I wash them about twice a week. When I take showers I will often tye up my hair so it dosnt get under the water. Also if you want healthy dreads use aloe. It helps in the locking process and also keepps them healthy and strong. Itching can become a problem also. Try not to itch. Aloe also helps with that. Use a shampoo that dosnt remove build up. Locks are awsome. You have a pillow with you at all times or if you have a girlfriend with them you can use hers. I like to say that I will never cut them. I saw a man with nine foot dreads and all I could say was wow.

is this trendy enough for you guys? i dunno i find dreads to be very spritual. you guys also need to realize the differnce between dread locks and "fashion twists" as i like to call them.

I'm glad that there's been a lot more positive posts on this thread than there were in the beginning..dreads are a truely awesome expression of oneself and all the insults and judgement that was going down on this thread upset me. I still haven't dreaded my hair, but I'm still very much concidering it and I really would like them, it's just a big commitment and I want to make sure I'm positive about it.

Peace and Much Love

once you dread your hair, is there no way to undread it? is the only step in removal, a shaven head?

I AGREE!knotting up is spiritual! you learn a lot about yourself, and a lot about patience...also, as a white female i learned a lot about discrimination that i've never had to deal with before....i'd been so used to being able to not draw attention..but in the past 3 years of being knotted, ive had to struggle to get a job, and deal with cops completly differently, and had my share of verbal tormenting...on the other hand, non-haters have given much positive feedback, and more importantly i love them....
but you mentioned wax?? please dont wax them!! it may make them stick together faster, look like dreads faster...but take advice from someone who's seen the result of wax! as the outside hairs grow over the old wax...it gets stuck inside...after washing it holds water and gets moldy...after several years in you cut those same waxy dreads in half....MOLD!stinkY NASTYass mOld! as lexi said....ALOE!!
check out knottyworld.com by the way,,,im sure theres some dreadie pictures there to entice you!!mmmmm

thanks for the advice on not using wax golden, I'd never heard of wax causing mold before. I got these pics off of knottyworld.com of some dreads I thought looked pretty decent (as far as being clean and not frizzy):





These aren't necissarily unfrizzy but I thought it was a cool picture none-the-less.

I know those guys from knotty world. the last one by the way when he cut his dreads they were filled with wax he posted pics. wax is not water soluble so it stays in there for good thats why you get mold.

frizzy and messy is the best part hehe i went compleatly natural. none of that non frizzie and clean shit for me.. i want them to look like fucking tree.  :grin:

yes it is possible to undread it some ppl have undreaded at 3 years but it all depends what kind of hair you have.me for example at 5 months some dreads would be impossible to undread, i got some nappy hair. but theres about 2 to 3 inches of undreaded hair in each dread so you wouldnt have to be completly bald. you could problably get away with more lengh if you cut inbetween the old dread and the newly dreaded hair and then undread the not so tight new dread part
