Been a couple of days...but here I am


Introduce Yourself

i agree with you completely. you do what works for you and what you love.doesnt matter if they're 'traditional' dreads or if they're not... whatever.as long as there's a smile on your face and in your heart then you've done the right thing.i have learned to take what you need from advice and critisism, and and put the rest aside. people will always have their own opinions about everything... but you have found peace with y ourself in the way you've wanted, and there's nothing more beautiful than that :)Jaquerian McCain said:
With sisterlocs you do not use any product. But I have never used any product before not even with my traditional locs. For thousands of years my ancestors did root flipping. Nothing new about it. Certain tribes did palm rolling - nothing new about that either. Other tribes added extensions and did very decorative braiding around the crest of the head - nothing new about that either. Different methods for different people work differently. I have never lived according to what a site says. I do what works for me. And so far, no breakage either time I have loc'd. I have said it in other threads - its about doing what works for you...and you finding peace with it.

unfortunately, right now, you wont be able to convince most people about dreads. people will think the hair falls out, they'll think they're dirty, etc, etc,i worked at a resturaunt too and they put me in back to wash dishes...they wanted me to wear a hairnet as well, but i agree with you. if you do, so should everyone else.maybe while you're working you could pin up the sides? just bobby pin them back so they're not hanging? that's what i did, or what about a thick hair wrap?.. that will keep everything off your face and tucked up nicely :)

dreads predate money so why spend money for dreads


Dreading Methods

I can answer this in what happened to me when i had my dreads a couple years ago...mine were all natural, no wax or anything.. a friend had helped me with them while we watched some movies... they were kinda messy.... and i worked at a resturaunt. that didnt go over very well, so they stuck me in back to wash dishes, dropping my pay, of course. i loooved my dreads, but i also needed to keep a job because i have 4 children. it's hard sometimes when there are soooo many places that judge you by your hair. i kept the dreads for 2 years, and took the pay cut, then ended up finding a new job, but that wasnt easy. Im guessing, from my experience, i think having them 'done' by a hairdresser, sounds like they might come out neater. i still wouldnt choose that route myself, but i think maybe that's why some people choose it??

I'm not counting on this because we are a teeny and out of the way state, but cant hurt to ask right?I'd just do it myself again, but the last time, the back didnt come out too neat and it was hard to manage at work.nice to meet you all!!!!
