I have been "lurking" on this site for quite some time now and I have to say, I absolutely LOVE it. So much great advice and I love how the women talk to each other on here--everyone seems to be genuinely wanting to help each other out. It's wonderful!
So, I would love some advice from the members out there--dreadlocked mamas or not, all advice is welcome! I have been making a major change overall to my lifestyle. I am phasing out commercial products and am so happy about it (first example: threw out all the commercial face cleansers for the OCM method--fantastic!) and gradually working on other areas in my life. My next "project" so-to-speak is my hair. Ready to go "no-poo" and make a change--and one I've been really looking forward to is dreading my hair. I've been doing a lot of research on it, considered it for a long time, and now I feel ready to do it. The dilemma: DH is not on board. I ran it by him and got that same old, stereotyped response: "Eww, that's gross, they smell" etc. etc.
To me, he knew I was into all of this "crunchy" type of stuff when we got married. So in a sense, this is like a next logical step for me....but maybe too far for him?
I really want to do this--so what would you all suggest so that maybe I could persuade him? Honestly, I'll probably end up doing it anyway, but having my husband's support is obviously very important. I've read posts about women who were dreadlocked and said that you really need to have the support of your husband for something like this.
TIA--I really appreciate anyone's open and honest opinion on the issue.
