Kinky is not the only definition

   Under the umbrella of the natural hair ‘movement’ lies many different textures from wavy to curly to kinky. However, I’ve noticed that dreadlocks often get left out of this ‘movement.’ A lot of people have an idea of a puffy Afro and that is all they view as natural hair. Dread locks do fit into the natural hair community because dreads are created by palm rolling your hair (or whatever other methods one can use). I believe that because there is still a large stigma held against people with dread locks, they are often forgotten. Dread locks are a beautiful expressive way of wearing your hair and contrary to popular belief there are a lot of things that you can do with them. Hopefully as we are becoming a more progressive group of people, the stigma against dread locks will cease to exist.
