dreads and jobs
dreads jobs employment issues
I've tried that...maybe it's just my head or position of my locs when I put them up.I work a 12 hour nightshift and 1/2 way through the shift I have a headache. I've wraped my hair in a bun using my other dreads and that worked initially, but I usually have to let my hair down by morning put, it in a simple ponytail, and cover it with my lab coat.soaringeagle said:

This is my story...
I am a FT healthcare professional & have been for 22 years (loctitian is only my side job ;-} )
10 years ago, while working for a large hospital, I was told that dreadlocs were not an acceptable
hairstyle and to get rid of them & my nose ring.
Well, that never happened...LOL... but there were constant comments and memos from management stating that I was out of compliance. They wouldn't fire me just tried to make my quit.
Anyway, I stuck it out and fought it until 2 years ago when I had to change jobs due to department closure, economy..etc and now I work for a private diagnostic lab.
I walked into my interview not hiding my dreadlocs or nose ring...
During the interview I said (to my now boss), "If there is a problem with my locs or nose ring, please tell me now, because they don't come out."
His response " What does your hair & nose have to do with your ability to do your job?"
Most of my patients love my locs, especially when I dress them up with jewels or colored yarn.
My only problem is finding a way to keep it up and out of they way without getting a headache, hair bands and tams are not an option on the job. ( I hate hair pins.)
