7 Months Messy
they are perfectly normal..loops are essential to dreading and are beautiful
i used to work in an office too, my clients i met with included the former head of homeland security, all the local politicians, heads of credit unions (that are banks that are technically non profit) heads of multinational orgs like red cross
you name it
1st day i had my dreads all tucked away, but not even 1/2 way through the 1st day on the job i said f__k it and let them free they spilled out to the floor, just as the president walks by..stops and says 'wow' and that was the only comment any staff ever made on my dreads..clients however wanted to touch them all the time, i remember the head of the japan institute was absolutely fascinated by them to the point she kept interrupting our meeting to change the convo back to my dreads.
now, we were also connected to pbs broadcasting specifically why in philly. so i would occasionally work in their studios
and like pbs we did promotional materials like tote bags mugs posters, calendars etc.. when it came time to take the 'corporate image" photo to be used in these promos, me and my dreads had the most prominent position. ..more so then the president, treasurer, everyone.
point is don't worry about tying them back at work
if anyone ever says anything refer them to title 7 of the employee rights . its in featured discussions for reference.
the crochet was a bad idea but seems you didn't do much harm ..at all (very rare indeed)
so wouldn't be concerned about that (1st time i ever said i wasn't concerned about crochet use acctualy)
those loops are NOTHING take a look at ixchells wild beautiness those are some loopy dreads
most loops go away6 on their own but the ones that stick around are amsazing and you learn to love them
27 years growing dreadlocks the natural way
My dreads are over 9 feet long
