White powdery residue on the surface of my dreads :'(


Help! Save My Dreads

yeah...something is leaving residue. Try rinsing out dreads longer? I only actually was my "dreads" every month or two....you only need to be washing your scalp every time.

Life Issues Facing Dreads

this was years ago when there wasn't much there.

Now I wouldn't do it because it would be in there lap as well. Although...the movie theater here is REALLY roomy and there weren't too many people in it.

it fell down to maybe just past my shoulders then.

Nusing job with dreads?


dreads jobs employment issues

oh yeah...not all old folk are against them! One old lady I met once told me I was the first person with dreads that she felt comfortable enough to talk to about them. You say you want to know this now before so you can shave your head and have some hair by then. Well...just think...in like 4-5 years of growing dreads...it's really easy to put them in up dos and they look GOOD. You have less probs with straggles and frizzies...and...you are more comfortable with your hair. You also don't let it define you.

help, some needed advice...


Introduce Yourself

Like SE said...only start them the one time...and then after that just washing and separating is all you need!

I had no trouble finding a job when I was just starting my dreads. I just made sure that I took some time to twist them up into some sorta hairstyle that looked stylish and attractive. Also confidence is a huge part of interviewing for a job. Forget that you have dreads when you walk in for the interview. This is not about your hair style...it's about YOU and your abilities. Sell yourself and convince them that you are the one that they need to hire because you ROCK. :)

Baba, older black women definitely ask to feel my dreads. Younger black women can be racist little (expletive deleted) and just plain jerks. It's sorta funny how that works. People who are so fast to cry racism...and then they are the first to be!

yes you can! There was a nurse with dreads in the postpartum part of the maternity ward my daughter and I were at. Well...I was there...she was off in another part of the hospital in the NICU.

I think the more progressive the hospital you work at, the more likely they will accept dreads.

Dread Heritage


History and Religious Significance

My paternal grandmother told me that all she could get out of her mother about their ancestry is they were Heinz 57. Her maiden name is of English origin and I know there are ancestors that came to America on the Mayflower. So, American mutt coming from her.

My paternal grandfather is full blooded Swedish. He was a first generation American born.

My maternal grandmother is also an American mutt. But one who has genealogy for a hobby!
Lets see...German, English, Swiss, Irish, Welsh, Scottish...there is more I think. Also ancestors who came to America way early. One lived in Salem during the time of the witch trials. Story goes that he faked his death...head stone and all, changed his name and moved.

My maternal grandpa is half french, a quarter Norwegian, and a quarter Tlingit (an Alaskan Tribe in lower SE Alaska).

Definitely American mutt is pretty commom

Just like mutt dogs and cats

List of all dreadhead jobs!


dreads jobs employment issues

Apparently her coworkers that I talked with about them thought they were awesome!

This hospital is very pro breast feeding and unmedicated births....maybe "progressive" ideas have an effect on how well alternative hairstyles are received. Areas that have a more liberal population I believe are more accepting of tattoos, piercings, hairstyles, fashion trends and that sort of thing. Also, oddly enough higher education levels is related to those who register as liberal versus conservative...

Her's were definitely natural. :)

I was a CNA in Kansas. My residents didn't like them when I took them down, lol, but since they were always up, nobody else minded.
