The back of my head -- it refuseth to dread.


General Questions

I'm a total side-sleeper, haha! The left side especially! So my left side's hair is the shortest, then the right, then the middle/back of my hair has a couple dreads that only have a few loops and are close to their original length... Oh well, lol, everything in it's own time...

Should i go "no touch" with BS/ACV or should i scrub the scalp?


Introduce Yourself

I scrub mine. No issues here from it. I tnr'd mine, they didn't undo themselves, and are dreading up. Of course, mine are only six months old so maybe there hasn't been enough time for issues to pop up.Best wishes!

Dreads and the healthcare profession...


Life Issues Facing Dreads

Hey!I work as a PCT on a med-surg floor. I was hired on with dreads. My patients do not mind my hair, actually at this point though, most don't notice it. They're only baby dreads at six months of age. If patients do notice it, they're usually more curious of how one can "do that to your hair?" I've had a couple patients feel more relatable to me and therefore I was a preferred tech of theirs. As stated by others though, you may find pts requesting different help based on your looks and questioning your skills likewise. It's only natural.The biggest problem I have is keeping them clean and maintained. The pony tail I wear them up in has caused them to dread kind of funny - they're growing paddles on the ends - and cleaning them after each shift is getting more tedious and exhausting as they mature. It's especially getting difficult to motivate myself to wash them when I'm working back-to-back shifts BUUUT... Go to bed with clean dreads or go to bed with some fun bugs I picked up in an isolation room? ;)Best wishes!

wearing baby dreads in a ponytail??


Dread Maintenance

If I may interrupt for just a second, please...I was beginning to wonder if wearing my hair up was effecting my locks, myself... I noticed last week that most of my dreads that are balled up at the ends start "balling" where the hair tie hits them. When I read what Mons posted, I was like "Aha!"Will they eventually correct themselves? I will start wearing a bigger tie when I pull them back. I have to wear them up for work...And now back to your routine programming, thanks! :)

dreads and jobs


dreads jobs employment issues

I am a CNA in a nursing home and a PCT at a hospital. I love both! My residents don't like my hair (most of them joke that they're going to pin me and comb them out, lol) and my patients, being the diverse lot that can only be found on a med/surg floor on any given day, either love them or hate them. If they even notice them! No issues here, I was told I must keep them clean and off the collar. The CNO has seen them down and didn't even bat an eye.Interesting topic and fun to see the variety!

Extensions! Help!


Introduce Yourself

You can try wool extensions. There are tons of tutorials on YouTube explaining how to make them. Then you could just them in.

After dreadlocks????


General Talk

I agree with Sammie! :) You know the saying, "We'll cross that bridge when we get there..."?Well, if it is willed that you're meant to lose the dreads you will know and you will be ready to deal with it then. Until then... You're right where you should and (I'm presuming) want to be so don't try to cross that bridge yet! :) All my best!

washing my dreads


Dread Maintenance

I wash mine almost everyday. I work in the hospital and am in and out of isolation rooms. So far I haven't had any bad results (I'm only five months in) like dreads coming undone, not maturing, mold, or what-have-you but I'd rather be clean and slow to have dreads than potentially taking MRSA, VRE, meningitis, C-Diff, influenza, etcetera to bed with me! LolThe only bad thing about washing so often is how long it takes to rinse your locks and dry them. I make sure they're fairly dry before I go to bed. This means a long time wrapped in a towel and wringing them out followed by blow drying for a while.
