I have begun my Journey :)


Dreading Methods

over washing causes excessive oiliness oils are healthy and essential to scalp and hair health (thats why black people need constant moisturizing because the oils dont travel down the hair without oils it gets dry an brittle and breaks off)

when yoiu strip oils too much the scalp rebels and goes into survival mode pumping out extra oil to compensate (much like if you stop eating to lose weight your body converts every bit of food you eat into fat in case you starve yourself again)

additionaly oily hairs more acidic..so

the key to reducing oiliness is..slowly ween yourself off daily washing..wash every 2 days for a couple weeks then every 3 etc till you can go 3-4 days with minumal oiliness

and wash with baking soda only no acv this will tip the ph away from the acidic side

once its no longer as oily switch to a dread shampoo..or slowly add acv to ballance the ph you dont want the ph going too far towards nutral or alkeline..just shift it some away from the acidic side

Great tips and very well spoken. I will look up those Buff headwraps you mentioned...sound ideal. Thanks so much for you well-considered reply :)

I work in healthcare and it is also a very appearance based workplace. I was afraid they would come up with some "unsanitary" excuse. Being a proven asset to the team goes a LONG way.

Keep them clean and very well ordered as well as smelling great. Use an essential oil spray before work as long as it is not overpowering. If they smell great enough that people complement their clean smell no one will question their cleanliness. As for appearance from experience I would recommend long dreadbands and head covers as well especially during the "messy" period as I'm in now. You can make them yourself as well from the same material as the rest of your uniform so that it coordinates and actually looks like a part of it. I also use Buff head wraps as well. They are long and work well for working out too.

Try to avoid the stereotypical tams while on duty. That brings a whole other ganja related stereotype as well. And lastly be prepared to work harder for the same level respect and tips your received before.

One last thing one talks about is understanding that having dreads makes you a minority, a hair minority. Just like other types minorities you will have to deal with ignorance and even prejudice from time to time from both staff as well as patrons. Just take hope that there is a way to have dreads still advance through your professional career. A rule of thumb that minorities usually understand is that at first they will have to work twice as hard to get half the recognition of their peers. Just expect it, deal with it and get on with doing the absolute best job you possibly can and nothing will stop you from achieving your dreams and working a place you deem worthy of your talent and skill.

Dreads in the workplace


General Talk

oh btw her next job after that was ..well dominos pizza not exactly a :"high end restaurant" but the story of what happened should encourage you

after working there a while a new manager was promoted who constantly teased her for not being christian (so are you going out in the woods to dance naked worshiping trees and fornicating with demons tonight?) as well as making ignorant comments about her dreade

she started really screwing her over reducung hours ..several times she insisted she come in to work ..only to send her home an hour later

thisd went on for about 2 months then the manager was fired

and guess whos the manager now working more hours then anyone..the dready evil heathens in charge now haha

point being u may get 1 person descriminating and being ignorant but chances are they wont last long and you may even move up because of their attempts to push you down

Dreads in the workplace


General Talk

babas a chef in 1 i believe

my best friend was 1 in a seafood place in tulsa (few inches below the belt in the bible belt and to the rear..- the s___ stain of the bible belt) after working there for years it changed ownership andthe new owner required her to tie her dreads back and hide them with this hairpeice thingy (like a clipon ponytail thing)

the 1st day she went in like that ..the regular customers that knew her were ouyraged and for the next few weeks stood outside having resteraunt patrons sign a petition to let her wear her dreads freely without hiding them and said they would stop eating there if they didnt comply

so

just be friendly sociable smile alot ..a grumpy waitrsss or 1 thats short with u is more likely to get complaints while doing everything right then 1 that puts her hand on your shoulder looks you in the eyes sweetly talks to you like an old freind as she pours hot soup in your lap

win over the people who eat there with your personality and your dreads..and the management..wont matter at all

we got a $200 donation yesterday! along with a $50 dolar 1 a few days ago and $100 from dreadlockshampoo and a dozen smaller ones (under 20)

so that combined with what i had left in my account is enough to get us started repairing our trafic and rank

so thank you all sooooo much it means the world to me

but keep em coming i cant depend on another 200 donation next month and i am going with the $750 seo package since it seems the best (its a $1750 pachage he knocked $1000 off of for us! (the president himself))

so we still will need plenty of donations for the next couple months till things stabalize again

love ya all so much for all youve done to help
