Introduce Yourself

I'll admit, I was unsure that I would get hired as I walked into dunkin donuts for an interview. seeing as my hair is in the messiest stage, 3+ months. Even before dreading, my hair was always a disaster, causing previous employers to continually make me cover it up and "hide it" with braids as much as possible. I put it in a bun for the interview, hoping the manager wouldn't notice. She didn't say anything, and I started work the next morning :] on my second day a co worker asked me to take my hair down... Shit, I'm already going to get reprimanded, I thought. "Jennifer (manager) said you've got some cute dreadlocks." I was shocked, my thoughts initially were that they would notice eventually, maybe in two months, and just tolerate it. A couple more co workers came and starting admiring my locs, feeling them and asking tons of questions. The usual stuff that people assume, can you wash them, will you shave your head when you don't want them, etc.. I was happy to inform them of all the common fallacies and educate them a bit on the powerful and beautiful journey of growing locs. Now, dready brothers and sisters, if you're confident and show your character, any establishment worth working for will NOT discriminate against you for something as trivial and unrelated as a hair style (or lack of in lots of our cases;] ) i hope you're all having a beautiful day, and for you lucky ones that got it, enjoying the changing of the season!

Introduce Yourself

Some people use 5 drops, others 25. It's all personal preference, experiment with it till you find the right about for you. I use 7 teatree and 5 peppermint. It's powerful stuff

youtube addicts wanted


General Talk

Hey eagle, I'd be glad to help out with the YouTube channel. There are so many terrible and misinforming dread videos out there, it would be great to have some about the truth on growing beautiful healthy dreadlocks that will last a lifetime!

Holy cow, that's some serious shrinkage. I commend you on your strength, I've realized how many females base their feelings of beauty in the length of their hair. I've literally seen family members in tears over losing 3 inches to a hair cut!
