Four Reasons Why Dreads are Actually Good for You

There are obvious benefits from getting dreadlocks like how awesome you will look, but you may not have thought about some of the other benefits that you can get from having dreads. There are some that don’t even have anything to do with your hair!

First and foremost, after the initial process of actually getting your dreads done, they will save you tons of time. Gone are the days waking up late and having no time to do your hair so it looks presentable. With dreads, they are so simple yet so versatile as well. There are tons of styles to choose from that can be appropriate for arguably most workplaces.

Second, you will save money. Yet another benefit that doesn’t directly affect your hair, but helps your wallet. You don’t have to spend loads of money on haircuts or trims every 4-6 weeks. No more money wasted on buying expensive products or pricey treatments to get that flow you want. You might be surprised to find out how much people really spend on these things and how quickly they add up.

Third, your hair will obviously thank you. We put our hair through so much damage during its lifetime. We fry it with curling irons, straighteners and who knows what else and at least while your hair is dreaded, it won’t be getting damaged in the same way. In fact, although dreads aren’t the best treatment for your hair, you will experience new, clean, and strong hair growth while you have dreads. Plus, with proper maintenance, you will have soft, full, and shiny dreads to show off for years.

Fourth, your brain will benefit from dreads, too! Most humans have a simple routine that they do each and every day and almost never deviate from. Having dreads will completely throw that routine out the door. New responsibilities for your new hair style will re-teach you how to be flexible and all of the things you need to learn by choosing a new hairstyle. It’s fun to learn, research, and talk to people from a new group like those with dreads. We are a bit of a community and love learning from each other. Trust us, your brain with thank you.

With at least four, and many more benefits that were not mentioned, dreads are a really great adventure. They can change up your lifestyle, your goals, your financial situation and more. Though they may seem like small impacts, making one choice like getting dreads can really challenge you to focus in on other aspects of your life which will have innumerable benefits.
