Stylish & Unique People

The first, and arguably the most important, aspect of this community is the stylish and unique people that make it up. The most obvious reason why you easy come together with people with dreads is the common and unique style that you have in common.

Dreads can come in all shapes, textures, sizes, and styles; just like the people that have them. It’s a common hairstyle that brings together a group of people who are always stylish in their hairstyles and also clothing and music tastes as well and unique in an even wider variety of ways.

Helpful and Educational

Not only are these people looking great in their style choices, but they also offer so much more to you as well. The dreadlock community is close-knit in how they love and are always willing to share helpful information.

The good, the bad, and the ugly comes out when people join and learn from this community. This aspect alone is key to a functioning group that trusts each other. The willingness and obligation these people feel to share and help those who are just starting their journey with dreadlocks or just trying something new. They give you ideas for style tips, product ideas, and advice on emergency situations that have likely plagued at least one of them at some point.

Shared Experiences

Similarly, these people have gone through the same things you have on your own dread journey. They are willing to share trusted information and assistance with you when it comes to how to get your dreads, where to get the best products, and websites with tons of useful information.

In the same way, they have seen many of the same struggles. One example is how to deal with people who are not as accepting of the hairstyle. They help you reason and understand perspectives of parents, friends, or managers at your job who might be giving you a hard time about the hairstyle choices you have made. The dreadlock community is helpful in so many more ways than just giving advice; they also offer support for emotionally tough situations that are centered around having dreadlocks.

Variety of Lifestyles

Dreadlocks themselves are a creative and unique choice, but what’s more unique is the type of people who get dreads. In fact, this “type” doesn’t really exist at all!

There is such a vast and ranging variety of people who find their ways to a head full of dreadlocks. Celebrities, business people, athletes, artists, musicians, entrepreneurs and more all share the same desire when it comes to dreads, despite the fact that they might not share anything else in common! Dreadlocks are one of the few things that bring such a strange and beautiful array of people together in finding common ground.

Whatever your reasons for getting dreads might be, just know that you are about to enter a strong and growing community who will help, support, share, inform, and just enjoy being in the same community as you.
