I had dreadlocks but I cut them only lately because I couldn't sleep at night, it was not comfortable at all.
At the beginning it was so nice but then it became less and less attractive...
I truly don't think dreads are easier for travelers, on the contrary, it becomes dirtier much faster and it is not at all comfortable, as I already mentioned before, but yep...it's charming in a way, so go for it until you'll have enough. You'll get enough sooner or later
Today I'm skin headed
I like it this way
May not be as impressive as locks...?
Luckily I've got nice face
