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. :)

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.

Nusing job with dreads?


dreads jobs employment issues

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.

Dry dreadocks


Dread Products

What SE said. I found I couldn't buy my aloe in the regular skin care sections cause all of them were not pure and had alcohol as one of the main ingredients. I'd have to look in the natural foods sections.

Alcohol would definitely increase the dryness. With dry hair you probably only washed once a week before dreading...if you are doing more now that's making it worse too. Jojoba oil like SE said is a oil that is added to many natural skin and hair care products as a moisturizer...

Also maybe only soaping your scalp when washing? My hair is the opposite and gets oily....so never personally had this.

An article I just stumbled across


Dreads as Community Leaders/Builders

http://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle/health/natty-dreads-matted-hair-is-in-fashion-7869119.html

This might have something to do with all the people wanting to dread their hair lately!

Hey...even one of Dreadlockssite's own commented! So....maybe this has been seen here already.

Would this be the right place to put it?

Dreaming of dreads!


Introduce Yourself

I definitely agree that the Christian faith seems to have a....interesting turn of way people believe things should be done! It's really those extremists. Extremists mess up every group they are associated with. Christian extremists are getting scary though. They are infiltrating our government and want to take over and control every little thing. Then say that is what Jesus would have wanted...something wrong with that in my head...

crazy locticians

They tend to tell me what I "need" to be doing...and then the next time they see me question why I haven't done it yet...

Long, thin sections?


General Questions

it'll be great! I think thinner dreads are easier to take care of anyway...they dry faster...and my opinion is that they are more attractive. :)

Just let your hair do it's thing!
