Presenting : White people damaging their hair by forcing it to do something it’s not meant to in an effort to seem earthy.
this shit is nasty
Omg! That last one is kinda fresh! I call it the Meatloaf
Seriously white people? Give it the fuck up. You don’t have the hair texture for that. Accept it.
Somebody told me that if I deleted this post I’d stop getting notes on it (it was blowing up my phone) and that *kinda* worked. I would like to take a moment and point out that I had a shit ton of people hounding my inbox and the comments saying they had dreads that look like this and they weren’t gross or that if they don’t shower this is what their hair does naturally
- The dreads in this picture are hella nasty. One is full of mold. That’s the point. These are NOT what dreads are supposed to look like.
- Hair that isn’t afro textured never ever looks like real dreads (i.e. they don’t look the same at all) If you had to backcomb, they probably aren’t real dreads.
- You are exploiting your white privilege if you can still go to school and work with your dreads in, because black people consistently have their natural hair deemed ‘unprofessional’ and used as a means to prevent them from getting hired and to fire them from jobs and have them expelled from school.
- They won’t do their own research. No, the Celts did not have dreads, no dreadlocks are not found everywhere
- White people calling themselves Rastafarian. Are you kidding. ‘Rasta’ and ‘Rastafarian’ are not terms meaning ‘Bob Marley Fan Club’ or ‘I like weed’. Rastafarians are AGAINST white supremacy.
- BUT BLACK PEOPLE STRAIGHTEN THEIR HAIR/ WEAR WHITE HAIR. One, black people don’t wear ‘white hair’. I’m not lying to you, walk into a hair story.You will find Indian, Malaysian, Brazilian but never European hair because it’s not as great as you think it is. Two, the fact that people with kinky hair straighten it with relaxer or flat irons ect is because black people are taught that their natural hair is ‘not good hair’ and because their natural hair is sometimes deemed as unprofessional. Do you like movies? Chris Rock made one about it called ‘Good hair’. Also, this.
- Your Dreadlocks are cultural appropriation. They also look nasty.
x o x o fuck you
Ewwww mold in hair??
from tryin to make they lips bigger to this. they stop at nothing.
If you want to play “Celtic Warrior,” paint yourself blue and run around naked, frat boy. But Celts, Gaels, Picts, etc all wore their hair long and either plaited or loose. Not in dreads. Pirate movies that show white men with dreadlocks? Bullshit. White air gets greasy and stringy when it goes unwashed. It does not naturally dread because it’s not course enough, so shut your fucking face. If you want to “reconnect to your roots,” do your fucking research, instead of acting like a brat and stealing someone else’s roots. Though, I guess, you really can’t get anymore fundamentally “white ancestor” than stealing from people of color.
The Celts had plaits. Not locs. Not “dreads”. if people of Celtic descent wanna claim that, rock it and protect it? PLEASE DO. BUT THEY ARE NOT LOCS. THEY WERE PLAITS. Like the White version of Box braids. Not what Black people and PoC (Meaning: Black or damned close to it) followers of Rasta faith and the (also unique) texture of Indian hair provides known as Jata.
Just fucking accept it white folks: You have never had a cultural foot in the door like Black folks and Indian/Asian variants. You had plaits. So fucking wear plaits. Stop pretending your hair is locking rather than sticking together completely by the power of mold and matted hair.
Locing is not matting. Period. Never will be. You need thick, coarse hair to get locs or Jata. There’s no way around this. Only the most curliest of curly textures for European hair can come anywhere close to it. I’m talking like: you need to be 3c+ by Andre walker’s system to even come close. Otherwise, you stink, your hair is matted, knotted, disgusting, trapping oodles of dead skin, oils, filth and dandruff and your nasty, stinky ass piece of shit imitation for locs is why white people believe NOBODY washes their locs. because of you.
When in reality people with locs and Jata are some of the cleanest, freshest people I’ve ever met. Always smelling like jasmine and sandalwood and shit.
