crochet and dread tools recovery
Thank you very much
So I suppose you can say laziness saved my dreads :D
I have been recovering from crocheting for 2,some years now. I crocheted my dreads as a way to get them started. This is NOT something i regret as I believe it to be part of the experience and history I have with my hair, but I must admit it is not something I would recommend others to do. It leaves the scalp sore and the hair scratchy and uncomfortable. Here are the pictures to show the progress.
I worked as a substitute teacher in a primary school for a year and never had any problems with concerning my hair. The children were very curious and the girls loved to put pearls and stuff in my hair.
My employers were very curious as well actually, but my hair was newer even mentioned in my interview. I plan to work as an archaeologist after I graduate university, and do not expect my hair to be a problem in getting a job.
When I worked i always kept my hair in a professional hairstyle (like a bun, ponytail or a braid) as working with it loose seemed too uncomfortable and looked unprofessional.
Depending on the length of your hair I can see different issues with different hairstyles. But do the best you can, keep it professional, and I think you will be fine
attached is a photo of "normal" my hair looks i a bun :D
GO for it everybody!
I had my dreads done by a friend with a crochet needle.. they looked awesome (a bit weaved) for the first week and so.. then they started to come undone and i re-crocheted them.. I continued doing that a until I was three months in and found this site. I have been neglecting for six months by now and can only stare in admiration at people that went neglect from the beginning.. because even though I've had mine for nine months now they still look super fuzzy and "undreaded". but it doesn't bother me anymore.. I've fallen in love with the process and the little developments every day.
so good luck to you
