So your son/daughter wants dreads and you don't feel it's in their best interest. Well dreads, contrary to the beliefs of some, are not an unclean hair style. They should be washed and cared for. They will not make your child smelly or dirty and won't damage their scalp or the roots of their hair. Unlike tattoos dreads can be removed quickly and inexpensively by cutting them when your child grows tired of them.
They build self confidence and promote spiritual growth. And they allow your child to express themselves in a natural and non-permanent way.
