Well, I've joined this community to consult people who probably know the most about dreadlocks.

I have been trying to decide if I want to get dreads. But I don't know anyone who I can talk to about my options. I have to decide sooner or later, or I'll end up with no hair at all. At least twice a week I end up putting some in without making them too tight. And a few days later I always end up brushing them out, losing quite a bit of hair in the process.

One of the things that has been stopping me from going through with it, is the fact that I will have to get a job in less than a year. I don't know if it will make it harder to get a job or not.

Another thing that holds me back are the rumors going around about how they get moldy, and clumps of hair fall out all over the place, and people end up going through so many problems with them that they shave their heads.. I don't know if any of that is true, who knows? If anybody here could give me a bit of advice, direction, maybe some facts. It would be most appriciated.
