wow [21 Jun 2003|12:34pm]
i'm so glad i found this place. will definetely help me with my dreading process. i already have about 5 baby dreads.

i have 2 questions. i'm not one who really cares what people think of me. i am a very open and peaceful person. i guess i just have somewhat of a small concern with being confonted by someone belittling (sp?) me because i have dreads and i am white. has anyone been in such a situation? how have you dealt with it, or said? i just want to be able to speak out about dreads and take away the common misconception that only "blacks", "potheads", or "dirty hippies" have dreads.

second question is, i already came out to my parents, and now i have to explain that, yes, i have dreadlocks. i have old cuban parents. they are just NOT going to understand. lol any stories to share? advice?

thanks, and sorry if this has been discussed before. i really look forward to this community. :)

Help Not So Wanted? [21 Jun 2003|01:01pm]
has anybody found trouble in the area of the pursuit of employment due to their dreads?

Does anybody have a way to make dreads look a bit more acceptable for the work place? Or is that just a lost cause?

In any case, I've had my hair in all sorts of neat styles from a mohawk to braided, but dreads have been my favourite so far. I'm not even sure how the style came about...I guess I sort of just fell into them. But that's just me...How did you discover dreads?
