I've haunted this place for a few years, since before I started dreading. My dreads will be 2 years old at the end of the year; my New Year's resolution two years ago was to stop brushing.
My husband and I both have dreads. His are...old. Since he's thinning on top and I have soooo much hair, his advice does not apply to me at all.
And I need some help.
When I decided to dread, well, I'd wanted them ALWAYS, but found myself at a spot in life that allowed me to freely welcome this desire into my world. I was starting my own business, a business that didn't require me to "conform" to society's (albeit hogwash) standards for professionalism.
Anyway, my dreads have been allowed to form as they wish, and...they've most certainly taken on a life of their own. I love them.
I've also realized an over 10-year dream and obtained a certification that forces me to do business with doctors and nurses and hospitals and such...folks that I've found to be quite judgmental about appearances. I do pretty up-do's with my dreads and feel very comfortable with them, but I can't help but wonder that if I tidy them up a bit, if they'd be a bit more acceptable to those with whom I would like to do business.
My question is...HOW??? How do I turn this mass of messy magick into something a bit more conformed?
Mind you...conformity is NOT a strength of mine, but the reality is that I DO need these folks to earn an income that doesn't require a J-O-B.
