Teachers with dreads
dreads jobs employment issues
I work in a Kindergarten classroom. This is my 2nd yr at the school. I am in my 8th month of natural dreads. I have to be honest and say my hair is not anywhere close to looking neat or can I at this point make it look neat. My hair has dreaded more quickly on one side of my head than the other & I actually have hair just above shoulder length on one side and an entire section of long hair on he other side that goes almost to my breast. I have very wavy hair and before dreads I would just wash, comb and go. It could get pretty big and frizzy. I would mostly wear it in a ponytail or bun and have tried to do that since I began dreading in September of 2013. My hair has now shrunk so much a lot of the underneath dreads stick out of my bun. On days I wash I fear putting it all the way up may cause it not dry quickly enough and I don't want mold so I just pull the sides back and take it out while I am on breaks w/out the kids. I have not had any comments good nor bad at this point but it is quite obvious something is going on with my hair
I do live in Los Angeles CA which I suppose most anything goes here. I'm not sure if that helps or not at least it may give a sense of where your hair may go. Everyone's hair dreads and shrinks differently.
