My darling granddaughter Anah had dreadlocks until about a week ago. She had snipped several off in the front. She is four and I think all of my daughters had already trimmed their hair at that age :) Her momma decided to cut them off and let it be a "fro"... aka Afro. All the aunts think she looks older.. I kind of liked the dreads, but Anah is really pleased that she can comb her hair by herself. and she's still the cutest thing I have ever seen!!
