Well hello there...
My name is Tracey AKA DarkMatter, I am married to rustdust who is another dreadlock site member. After much consideration (been thinking about it for nearly a year) I have decided to take the dreadlock journey, although I have been concerned about my employment in the gaming industry (casino).
I really want to start forming natural dreads and my husband suggested that if I grow my dreads naturally it may not be such a shock to my employer, what do you guys think? I know there shouldn't be discrimination against hair styles but there is a good chance that I am going to get some negative reactions about it.
My hair is currently about mid back length and I think it will dread quite well, but I am in my early 40's and am starting to show grey roots which I tend to colour (not in a salon, I do it myself)...do you think this will be a problem or is it ok to colour your roots as your dreads progress?
rustdust has shown me the wealth of information on this site and I am looking forward to taking this new journey in my life.
