Do a reverse mohawk. Shave the middle of your head and go predator style.



I had a mohawk once. I had to wear a beanie to stop scaring people. Was different to the long headbanger hair I had. Always tied it back and people though I had a mullet. Till I let it out and became cousin IT...

I did construction many years ago, hot Florida commercial construction that is. This one dude had dredds, and OMG they stunk so bad. We'd be up on ladders next to each other hanging materials together, and mofo all I could think about was grabbing him and practically drowning him in 5 gallon bucket of rubbing alcohol to sterilize that stink. LOL I haven't thought about this in forever. He actually an alright dude, I will add, but I still wanted to dunk him lol.

Want respect from anyone that sees you? Respectable employment? Cut them off and you may have some of that. Plus you won't smell anymore.

You presume that I am unrespected, unemployed, and smell bad.
Wrong on two counts. I am probably due for a nice long shower, though.
A little musky.

I like dreads, but black guys seem to pull them off better than white guys.

Don't listen to any of us, including me.

Do what makes you feel like you, even (or especially) if that is to do nothing. You have invested time and your ideals in growing dreads.

Blouse an' skirt! Do what makes you feel krisss.

To dread or not to dread ,that is my question also , frankly I'm getting tired of it, I used to be all skin headed, but my folks around me keep saying it's good for my image,we had this conversion before but have yet to take a pair of scissors to it.
Keep in mind tho, those of you who are corporate will no longer be protected by law, this will remain the style of the self-employed.

That is racist.
Don't get me triggered.
Vikings and Roman soldiers had the natty.

Nope not racist. Just an observation, like black guys look better than white guys with a shaved head. Just a simple observation.

But I'm sure you can be cute no matter what you decide.

Well duh. Bald white guys are automatically skin heads. And nothing is uglier than a skin head.

Skunk apes are the Florida Bigfoot. They have hygiene problems after millions of years of mucking around in the stinky salt marshes.

Dreads are dirty and smell bad. And will definitely give you negative associations in the eyes of many. Plus if you are white you probably will get hate in this day and age.

They're not and they don't.
I get more compliments than otherwise.
No hate has been encountered.
I did almost get one tangled in a machine at work.
I am whitish, but I have, with rare exception, caught no flack from other races.
They were idiots.
They are nice in cold weather and you can wet them in the summer to keep cool.

Most of the dread-wearers I have been around will knock you over with the smell of patchouli oil before they get close enough to smell the dreads. What's up with that?

As a person with dreads I really want to cuss your ass out for being innorant and making wide sweaping statements, but I'll behave ..No!! Dreads are washed and treated.

Yul Brunner. Certainly for us ladies of a certain age.
Then we have Telly Sevalas.

Yep, on the whole, I think you are right
