mess at work

so i've literally just begun my dreading journey and am super excited. the only thing that worries me slightly is showing up to work with incredibly messy hair. i work in a restaurant and appearance is pretty important there. we have hired many people with dreads so i know it's not a problem - but the first few weeks my hair will be a tangled mess, not resembling dreads at all.

would it slow the process down to wear a bandana over the top of my head where it gets the frizziest? the rest i can just loop in a messy bun, i think. i work nights so normal they don't give a butt what we look like but i don't overly want to test the theory, lol.

I wore a bandana anytime I went out of my home for the first year or so to hide the messiness. Once it was long enough to pull into a ponytail, I did that as well. As soon as I got home, it was let free. I didn't have any problems with it not dreading. Good luck!
