New dreads and new job anxiety
Dreadlocks Journey Emotional Support
I've loved this site as a reference and inspiration but see it hasn't gotten the love it used to...
I've wanted dreads for a long time and started dreading last year but combed them out at the three month stage because they got very unruly and I started getting anxious out in public. I've never been big on hair maintenance (wash and go) so having separate twice a day was tiring and more work than I was used to! But, I know that eventually calms down and I'm willing to put in the effort so I don't get huge congos.
Now, I have decided to embrace dreadlocks again but am also starting a new job and know in a few months all that anxiety will rear it's ugly head again. I am hoping I can learn to live with the baby messy stage which did bring me plenty of joy and that my new job won't see it as a problem.
