I am in the process of getting dreadlocks. Why do I feel like a fake?
I'm going through some major life changes and rediscovering my true self after having suppressed the real me for so long due to needing to be "very corporate" in my employment.Since then I have switched jobs and now work in a very laid back, but still corporate environment.I've begun the process of my dreadlocks, have put some thread around a few and some beads too. I'm holding them back with a nice headband I made myself. All classic dreadlock accessories. However, what else am I going to decorate them with except for beads, threads and shells, and what else will I hold back the straggly bits with, but a nice headband? lol.I feel that even though I've been really happy and comfortable with my hair this way (actually more happy than I have been in years), I can't help but feel that I've gone from being a neat, tidy corporate chick, to a dreadlock chick, complete with beads and thread. All this over the space of a few months though, not overnight.Does this make sense to anyone? Sorry, I'm not explaining myself very well.
