Yeah I probably jumped the gun and regret it. Thing is Iwouldn'tsay I had 'dreads' The fact that they were in progress, as you know, made me look like a mess. I was wearing a hat a lot and I can't interview with a hat on. I just know how ignorant people are and if I'm compared to someone else with the same skillset and they're clean cut, then depending on the interviewer, myappearancecould be the deciding factor. Shoulda combed out. I'll try the biotin to speed things up for me and I won't color it this time... i'll go all natural. Thanks for your replies

Well good news is... hair grows. That's the only sentiment keeping me from going into depression.

Maybe you're right eagle, but I can't risk you being wrong. There are few opportunities that arise in my profession in my area and I need the best chance I can get. Whether its right or not, people discriminate. I shaved due to my color job as well. In hindsight I should have combed out and colored a normal color. I'm stupid and made a knee jerk reaction. If I was further along and more mature looking, I'd have left it. I feel like crap about the whole situation

Super bummed to report, my dread journey has been postponed... indefinitely. I lost my job and had to cut it in order to better my chances of getting hired. A sad truth, but my family is more important than hair. Once I'm secure in a position, I will try again. I literally shed tears at the salon. This was the last shot before I shaved my head. :(

Even less rubbing now, barely doing it at all. I've got about 10-12 dreads that are pretty solid actually. I think I'll let the rest come as they will. Getting big time backlash from my wife/parents about the 'culture' and my messy hair. They don't understand at all. Trying to stay strong. I'm 31 years old for crying out loud. Can't a man be respected for what HE wants to do? I work. I pay taxes.

I am starting this for myself really to track my progress and hold myself accountable. I will post a monthly pic from now on.

I'm starting from short hair and dreading as they grow. I rub with a beanie, but try to limit it as much as possible. I do it mostly to fro out my hair after wearing a beanie or when I wake up in the morning. I am conscious of potential damage, but I'm careful and not really worried about it as my hair is very thick. A little breakage with my hair this short I don't believe will have any negative affect on my dreads when they are longer and mature. I use Bucks County Dread liquid shampoo and bars with occassional locing gel between wash days.

1 month in and I've got lots of knottiness and even a few locs. Stoked on my journey ahead!

One month

Why I chose to dread...


Introduce Yourself

I like your explanation Pikey and totally identify. I'm starting my journey now after spending half my life feeling similar. I would say however I do think what you said has some spiritual characteristics :) I love this site for being able to read things like this from others going through the same stuff. Thanks for sharing.
