I wont lie, for some people it can be painful having dreads put in, as it involves prolonged pulling at the scalp. Some people have described it as an `annoying´ pain. Others do not find it painful at all, so it is hard to predict whether you yourself will find it painful. Generally any pain felt is only temporary, while I am putting the dreads in near the roots, although the scalp might be slightly tender for the rest of the day. If you are worried then take a couple of painkillers before the appointment, which will dampen any pain you might experience. If you think about it, people sit through tattoos everyday to get a result which they will love for the rest of their life, and so with dreading it is a similar thing. Also as a side issue, your bum may go a bit numb!
