loose hair... yet again


Dread Maintenance

ok one more question. i guess i should start a new thread but oh well. how hard would it be to try and comb them out and start over? being about a year in with a little back comb. and a little crochet on the tips. is this possible with minimal amount of work? and minimal amount of conditioner?

loose hair... yet again


Dread Maintenance

Well the thing is I let it go since December. That's 8 months. You must understand my frustration when I hear that people see change at one month.Now don't get me wrong I've seen or better yet felt a lot of change going on at the roots. Just the actual back combed dreads. That's where my loose hair frustrations are coming from. I'm not going to cut my hair. Just a little threat to myself really. As for washing I use dr. Bronners peppermint every 2 or 3 days. It does wonders for my scalp and makes my hair feel better. I don't use the acv rince cause it made my neck and chest break out. And I'm not hating on anyone for their advice just explaining my current situation. Further more I would like to thank everyone for their advice and words on encouragement.eRic

crocheting and ripping out your loose hair, I'm sure has made your situation much worse. I don't think you have proven anything except that when you mess with your "dreads" too much you really fu*k em up! Dreads aren't rocket science. If you leave your hair alone it WILL dread! Don't blame SE's advice blame your own impatience! It sounds like you want to cut so go ahead.

loose hair... yet again


Dread Maintenance

well s.e. i've had people ask if they are falling out. some loose hairs are just as long as my dreads themselves. its not just a little fuzz around the scalp. and no change in 6 months. i'm completely serious NO CHANGE what so ever in 6 months. i don't understand it. you say to wait. well waiting isn't working either. i think i'm gonna cut them off. this is not what i wanted out of dreads. and all of your advice on fixing them isn't working. i don't mean to be rude or say your methods aren't working. but hey i've proven when backcombed and a little crochet does not create dreads. and letting them be and grow out does not fix them.eRic

loose hair... yet again


Dread Maintenance

ok. so i know all about how bad backcombing and crocheting is. and as alot of you know i was naive in that fact. so i'm letting my hair grow. sad thing is, i got a BUTT LOAD of loose hairs. also as alot of you know i work in food service, so therefor neatness is kinda important. especially to our clientele. which is mostly redneck conservative types. (also im sorry s.e. but i don't write well. and will not break up my paragraphs). So my problem is all this loose hair. I rip alot of hair out of the actual dead every day. i got loops galore. i know other people with natural dreads and their "fly aways" and even a 1/4 some even 1/8 as bad as mine. to be completely honest its getting to the point were i want to shave my head.... don't get me wrong i love my dreads but this shit is getting rediculous. i'm seriously getting fed up with this nonsense. i use dr. bronners tea tree. and peppermint every 2 or 3 days. the acv shit was causing me to break out and cause rashes so i stopped that. if anyone has any kind of advice on what to do with this "rats nest" or "curmudgeon" (just 2 of which i've heard) please for the love of jah or buddha or even fuckin jesus for that matter please help me. i love my hair long. and i love dreads. HELP!!!!

i work in food service and have for like the past 7 years. all i deal with is stressRaychel Dom said:
I don't think the first impression rule should go out the window, however it's the automatic disdain for someone who is "different" the way you act, speak, carry yourself should dictate what people think about you, not your appearance.
I hope you find some sort of solution to this, stress is probably wreaking havoc on you. *hugs*

funny thing is i've thought the same thing. what if i acted flamboyantly gay the entire time. they would have a fit. and i would probably get fired. our target range for cutomers is people who make 80 thousand a year and over. which i find completely rediculous. i've worked in many other restaurants, always cooking or washing dishes. and never had a huge problem with my appearance. i used to frame pictures at a local craft store. i was a SALESMAN. now how many people you think would take advice on making their art look better from a crazy haired bearded guy, who was stoned the whole time. fact of the matter is i was the top salesman. my mission is now to show people (general public, and employers) that the way you appear is not always the way you act. fuck the first impression rule.

Well, I've worked in food service for 6 years and even tho' the place I work is probably, seriously, the least rule-bound business possible, there is definitely sexism in food service. We women can wear tanks tops, for example, but the guys get bitched at (not that they listen, but still). The guys have to be at least somewhat "neat" with their hair and IF they have a beard, it has to be trim. The women...we tend to pin our hair back, put it in pigtails, wear a headwrap, something - still, we have more leeway.

I am really, truly sorry for the situation you're in, Eric. It SUCKS, and the whole thing is so stupid. If I were you, I would be sooooooo tempted to go to work with my dreads in cute pigtails, adorned with nice bows - then see what they say to you >:-(
