Working in a really dirty environment
I'm trying to get into the electricians union, but I have to get my driver's license straightened out before I can do that.
So I have been lurking for a while and finally decided to join the group and post a question I have. I've been growing out my hair for a while now to start my dreadlock journey, but I've been kind of held back because of the work that I do. I currently work in a stain, lacquer and paint shop, where I am in a booth all day painting doors and staining wood packages. I have to wear a respirator all day which goes over the top of my head but my biggest concern is that even with a bandana over my hair I still get a lot of paint dust and over spray in my hair. Especially along the hairline. So I have to wash my hair pretty thoroughly every day. This makes me think that it's probably a bad idea to start my dreads if I'm not going to be able to keep the paint and stain out of my hair. Does anyone have any experience in this department and if so, what do you do to keep your hair clean. Any help would be appreciated.
