A new TV series with the intention to dispel the myths and stereotypes around people with dreadlocks
Dreads as Community Leaders/Builders
I am African American and I work for a major job board providing support for higher tiered employer accounts. While there are a few others at my job that have dreadlocks, I am the only person with "freeform" (as we call it) dreads. My hair my seem quite frizzy and/or messy to some at times but I get nothing but compliments on how my hair can just dread up without twisting or any manipulation. There is an ongoing discussion in the African American community on dread maintenance versus natural dreads. There are many maintenance styles uses that cause tension and balding instead of just having low maintenance and enjoying what our hair can do naturally.
