My sister went for dreadlocks, many years ago. I envy her. She has long, healthy hair, in what she calls, 'executive dreads.' They are fine, small and can be braided up, pulled back, left to hang loose, even flipped around as Cher used to do. They have gotten so long that she must regularly trim them or they would hang below her waist.
Someday, I'd love to have dreads like hers. I'm not even sure if my hair will dread at all. But the idea of the two of us as little old ladies with long dreads? I love it.
