Backcombed & now neglecting
Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support
So I've been backcombing my hair for a couple of weeks now, I finished my whole head. (I took my time doing it of course, not in no rush) But I was neglecting my hair for a while, but it wasn't doing anything. My hair is too straight, so I backcombed to somewhat hurry the process of them. But after doing this, I'm just going to let nature do the rest. I've been using baking soda still & also, I'll use liquid dreadlock shampoo that I bought from dreadlockshampoo.com . Well I called my dad today to tell him (I always keep him updated with my life) & he was pretty much telling me that I'm not going to be able to get a job. It's worse enough I'm having trouble already, but I'm hearing all these things about how I won't be able to with dreadlocks. I know jobs can't discriminate, but they can always not hire for "other reasons". I'm not regretting that I started doing this, but I don't know if I'll be able to start working. Another thing I didn't think about is that I'm living with my boyfriend & his grandmother (who is very old-fashioned) I took out my lip piercing a few months ago because she would always comment about it. She did not like it at all. She would not stop looking at it. & it's like this about my tattoos also. & now I feel like she's staring at my hair constantly. I look like simba by the way (my significant other just gave me this name) My hair's straight poof. (I'm going to buy a slouchy beanie though. I just need to feel better about this. I don't want judgement upon me, but me doing this is pretty much asking for it.
