i learned that if u believe in something then you will do it no matter what anyone says
ive learned people are very ignorant, even more
i learned that outward growth of something can also result in inward, spiritual growth
i learned that vanity is a waist of time and worthless
i learned time and patience can produce and create positive outcomes
i learned that by simply doing nothing it can create beatuful, strengthening, even enlighting things
i learned that a situation is only what you make out of it, or learn from, good or bad

I've learned that dreadding is like getting a new puppy.1. It's more than just a "good idea at the time" it's a commitment.2. For the first +/- 6-8 months of their life, they can be annoying, (especially to our parents) and never act like we'd like them to.3. After that comes years of pride and enjoyment, an awesome conversation piece and if they are really cool, they might even get you a "date"!!4. Once you start, don't give up, the joy of having them is worth any awkward stage you might encounter.5. Wag more, bark less, woof!ps/ I'm a pet groomer by trade. This process in dogs is called "Cording" and it looks fantastic! Check out the Komondor!!

I have definately learned the ignorance toward dreads which I think is just pointless ...just like the ignorance tward anyones personal style...or ideas .
I believe if you like/want it then go for it dont let anyone stand in your way..(wich i believed before dreads but moreso once i had them)
I also think that dreads are a good way to make people realize you are who you are wether your hair is dreaded or not
I backcombed and palm rolled mine and of course t&r but no chemicals other then the occasional tightening gel which is really just used to stick some of the fuzzies down
but i have learned wax isnt worth it ...why do that when you can just section them and rub them with your fingers ?
I also learned dreads are a different lifestyle people will look at you different for them ...so many think they are dirty or gross and it all depends on how you treat them
I love my dreads for what they are and i have learned to love them more every day i have them ^-^

i see people crochreting and waxing and bending over backwardss to have inoffensive dreads just to be walmart greeters or gas station attendents,
but i know natural dreadies who jave dreads past theyre knees in all sorts of careers
the dean of a local university as well as 2 professors and the network admin
docrtors
homeopathyhs and choropractors
chefs and limo drivers
a rocket scientist
a ceo
a civil rights lawyer
a cop
several teachers

the people who feel they need to compromise themselves for some reason seem to end up in low paying jobs wghile those who respect themselves and stick to what they believe in get paid what they are worth




at the same time ive seen several freinds cut theyre dreads in the hopes of getting a certain job..and they never got that job..but when they refused to cut they got the job they wanted
