oh ok, so most arent comfortable with the "conventional" hairstyles so you choose dreads because it works better for you. I guess i should share why i am choosing dreads for Carter, or at least seriously considering it if im asking all of you.
I feel as a mother one of my roles is to preserve his natural being as much as possible. Keep chemicals and other toxins out of his body, give him as much clean air in lungs and let his body naturally grow up and not change his natural state, if that makes sense. So cutting his hair doesnt seem to follow that, not until he is old enough to say he wants it cut. Thats his hair, why do i need to get rid of it, however being raised traditional english, your raised to "dine with the Queen" and appearence is important. So locking his hair allows the hair to just be, but still look groomed.
