The IGNORANT people of pinterest.com

They say ignorance is bliss, but I believe it is a burden. Being close minded about any one subject shows just how soulless a person is, in my opinion anyway. Today, while searching for pictures of beautiful hair and Dreadlocks on pinterest.com, I came across This Photo. The comments infuriated me. I know everyone has their freedom of speech, but I don't understand the point of leaving a negative comment just for the sake of being negative. I was going to look past it until I read further down and came across a comment left by hairstylist. I had to stay something. This subject is so near and dear to my heart I could not pass up the opportunity to possibly open someone's eyes to a new idea. You can read her comment and what I said to the her in the link above, or just read it here:

Im a hair dresser & have been for many many many years.. It's impossible to clean you scalp to what I would consider "clean" & the matted hair is just a collection of hair & skin & blanket lint that should have been shed.. I've had the great pleasure of removing them from several peoples head over the years.. & might I add.. I was delighted to do so:)

Enelrahc Etraud I too am a Hair Stylist. I also have dreads. You my dear are VERY VERY misinformed, as are many others who think Dreadlocks are "dirty". You CAN get your scalp clean while still having dreads. Dreading a natural way of wearing ones hair, it is the way hair was intended to be. You lose your comb, you gain dreadlocks over time. The fact that you were happy to remove ones dreadlocks is a disgrace to our profession. As a stylist, we should encourage people to live outside the box with their hair, and educate them in ways of taking care of their hair. Unfortunately though, there are hairstylists who are VERY uneducated and misinformed about dreadlocks, and they are 9 times out of 10 the reason most people end up cutting their locks off. Your years in this business mean nothing if you've not continued to educate yourself in EVERY aspect that you can, INCLUDING Dreadlocks.

I vow that some day I will be educating my fellow hairstylists on everything there is to learn about our business, and I will not stop until I've penetrated one thick minded person's head and changed their point of view about things. If I can reach just 1 person, I've done my job, but I will not stop at just one.

I just wish every hairstylist had a PASSION burning inside of them like I do for this industry. We need more stylist that have a deep love for hair, and that includes hair in EVERY form.

Okay this concludes my rant for the night :)
