Why is the community here so against maintained locs?
I get that you feel that way. I personally don't give a shit about money. That isn't what life is about for me. I'm an artist and I've always been poor and never really cared because I've never wanted material things. But I also do not have a family to support, so I feel you on that and respect that.
What I don't get is why have dreads at all then? Why not just buzz your hair, shave your face and be mr. clean cut corporate guy?
What I also don't get (regarding getting jobs) is why crocheting them, interlocking the, whatever, would matter verses letting them be natural. It seems to me that people who judge others for having dreads just judge the dreads period. (thinking they represent being a stoner, or being dirty, whatever). It doesn't seem like that sort of person would see the dreads being crocheted and suddenly think they mean something different. Crochet/maintained dreads might look a bit "neater" but they are still dreads.

I totally agree with what SE said about jobs. When you go to an interview you are interviewing THEM as well. Why would anyone want to work for someone who would judge them for having dreads???
