    I think that on black people, they can look good.

    On white people with ginger hair, they look ****ing stupid.

    Doesnt really look right unless you're black. It seems to work for you though

    From what I have heard about them they sound kind of unhygienic tbh. How often are they washed? That's the main factor in my deciding whether I like them on someone...
    I wash them pretty much every other day, same as before I had them.

    Why is it that most white guys I see with dreads are ginger?

    Had mine for 10 months now, and I love em! Just curious about other people's thoughts

    And yeah, they do get washed and are totally clean and stuff.

    I think they look quite dirty. I just can't help but make a connection with people who sell Big Issue.

    They look OK on you, but generally I don't like them.

    You don't have to cut them off, if you have lots of patience and lots of conditioner you can brush most dreads out, I've heard it's quite painful though.

    My dreads were 2 months old on Wednesday, I daren't post a picture cos I have a rats nest for hair.

    You wouldn't have to. It's a common misconception that they have to be chopped but you can detangle them with special creams and soaps (for example: http://www.treasuredlocks.com/knot-n...val-cream.html ). I was looking into dreadlocks for a while and as I have waist-length hair I was worried about the same thing.

    Like any hairstyle it can work and look nice or be done badly or not suit the person. I usually like them though, regardless of the race of the wearer.

    Terrible unless you're Jamaican.
    What? Why? Loc'ing hair has been around for longer than Jamaica has even been a country.

    I had fake plait in ones a while ago, I loved them
    They were candy cane pink.

    Personally, dreads can look good on some people. They can look really feminine on girls, and look good on some guys with good bone structure.

    Your picture isn't very good, but I think you suit them

    You don't need any special products, shampoos or waxes to get (or indeed remove) dreads. I wash mine with washing up liquid, it's cheap!

    Wax stops your hair knotting up and only makes your hair look like dreads, it also attracts dust and is sticky and gross. So don't use it!

    I like them. They look better longer, though.

    Agreed with all the people saying stay away unless you're black. It's like cornrows, just looks plain WRONG on white people :P

      Greasy. Horrid. Manky.

      Newton Faulkner makes me feel a bit sick. He's essentially quite attractive but his hair is repulsive.
