White people do not have to "try" or "do" anything to grow dreads. It just takes time.
Many white people DO try and create dreads but they can be grown completely naturally.
Keep telling yourself that. When whites just "do nothing" to create the dreadlock action it looks silly and isn't technically dreaded in my book.
And Im' speaking of the binding action of nappy hair. All you have to do it twist it to help it along the way and it dreads naturally. The whole concept of dreads is natural which is why the title to this thread is misleading.
