More dreadlock problems

September 30, 2008

It seems it’s not just Nigerian football managers that have a problem with dreadlocks, the area manager of a prison in South Africa isn’t too impressed by them either! Mandla Mkabela of Pollsmoor Prison says that allowing Rastafarian warders to wear dreadlocks would “open the floodgates” of indiscipline.

Dreadlocks definitely have an image problem in Africa. If you do wear this hairstyle it’s important to keep the hair and scalp clean; pay regular visits to the hair stylists for conditioning and maintenance; and if you’re having a bad hair day, tie it up neatly with a scarf and/or hair band.

    I think dreadlocks are beautiful if well kept. The problem people have with dreads is simple lack of pride .I find that people of color are more comfortable with process hair rather than embracing what works best for our hair.Keep it clean and well kept dreads are beautiful and keep us real. We do not have naturally straight hair, we are black people. Infact, chemical over time distroys our hair.I have decided to lock my hair and find hair freedom.

    Dreads and locks are very fashionable and very attractive; brothers and sisters who wear them make sure you keep them clean and smelling good with a beautiful shine….
