Moving Forward With Nature: My Dreadlock Journal
Member Journals and Timelines
I spent two days in the ocean, and it did wonders for my roots, more than any sea salt spray had done thus far, here is the results:
4 years 3 months,
they are very hard to fit in the photo frame, that is both annoying and making me proud.
I have been trying to wear them in different ways to fix the
During the last year, I had used a soap that was a little overly conditioning, and this left my roots a bit looser than they had been in the past. I have been trying to fix this using sea salt sprays weekly and simply washing my dreads regularly (On average about once a week). How long should it take for my roots to fix themselves again?
I was also wondering on a related note if the
I do truly hope that is the case. I was once told by a psychologist that to get a job in psychology I couldn't get large piercings, (at the time and even now I still think about gauging my ears) I know your point is correct that it shouldn't matter about how people look with jobs, but it still sadly is the case, in many fields and the psychology field as far as the mainstream branch goes, which is the part that fits the 'average joe' type of image. I personally want to get into transpersonal psychology, which I am hoping will have a more elastic dress/appearance code - and the techniques and theories feel like they will accomplish more for the clients. (although I am not currently in grad school or even looking into it at this point).
Yeah I get where you're coming from, which that same spirit is why I regret the trim, I mean the other part of it was that my immediate family sort of talked me into trimming it. ....another example of why listening to others about the way one looks backfires like crazy. For reference the field I am trying to get into is psychology, which is a tiny bit image based....so thus why I trimmed, but again regret that. Not entirely sure when I'll start the re-growth....part of me wants to hold off for some kind of meaningful date, so that I can track the growth....but having said that, that sounds like too much work (as I did do that for a while last time)
I actually cut my beard short about a week ago, as I am hoping to start applying for positions within my degree's field, but I really do regret having shaved it off, so when I am able to, I am gonna grow my beard out again, but I'm not entirely sure I'll lock it or not.
Edit: I do appreciate your guys' feedback on beardlocks though, I do think that maybe there will come a day when I do that journey too, but right now since I will probably be interviewing, I probably have to keep my beard short.
