starting over

Well, it's been a while since I was on here. I ended up combing out my dreads a year and a half ago after 17.5 months of having them. I had trouble with the ends not locking up (5 to 8 inches smooth silky hair at ends). In the end I'm glad I did. I now have strong healthy long hair that's down to my lower back. But I miss the feeling of my babies. I'm toying with the idea of letting my hair dread again, but I don't think I want it all to dread this time. Not sure if I can let my hair naturally dread on the bottom while maintaining my straight hair on top. However I do it, I will need to keep them looking good and professional for my job, but I don't want to cause damage to my hair in case I need to comb them out. Guess we shall see!

I shall go that route on Monday. I've had a braid at the nape of my neck in for 2-3 weeks. I absent-mindedly started twist and ripping a section next to it and then another next to that last week. I'm going to let the rest go naturally if it's acceptable at work. I haven't combed/brushed my hair since putting those two in. My hair is already tangling in the back. But I still find myself running my hands through the front sections and fiddling with my hair, so I'm trying to catch it when I do that. That has always been a problem for me. I just don't want the massive shrinkage and bulk that I had last time. Most of my dreads were flat and had 6-8 inches of loose tendrils hanging off them. If they shrink, they shrink. But hopefully going natural will have a different affect on the way they do so.

I understand that people should accept me for who I am and my hair is not supposed to be a reason for getting fired or let go. However, I know the corporate office I work in and if I do dreads again, they must be tidy or easily hidden until more mature. I can't afford to lose my job and don't want to have my reflection of my appearance affect that. Unfortunately it can and I live in a stateam where they don't need a reason to drop you. Outside if that, I want to have it not look like a rats nest. I may not be able to have dreads because if that. I'm still mulling it over. It is a big decision for me since the last set took me over a month of taking out with my finger tips and conditioner. I don't want to go through that again. Having partial dreads (4 or so) to start will be loads of work but not as difficult to take out. But I will still need to think about it. I miss them. Looking at everyone's pictures inspires me.
