    101 Dreads gone!!!


    I have had every cut, style that you can have as a black Male. But before my wife cut my dreads off I was having dreams about hair cuts and just feeling like I need a change. Before the dreads I had the low cut, that grew to an afro. and stayed at that lenght due to my mothers protests. But around 16-17 I started to use ahot comb to straighten the hair for my braids. after a few years of that I decided to get my dreads done. Now I love my hair always but after about 6 years of long luxurious hair that was past my shoulders I decided that I was done rebelling and wanted to grow up. Not that anything is wrong with the dreads I still think that worm right they are beautiful but for me I wanted to share the barbershop evpierience with my son and for my daughter to see my face more, as well as give my wife a look that she never seen on me. with that said I am loving the new look and will stick with it for now!!
