after about 3 weeks with no rubber bands on the roots of my dreads i had to put them back. i liked them better without them, btu i do admit they are looking good. after i showered adn washed my dreads yesterday i did my normal rutine of palm rolling and cicle rubs at the scalp. well to my surprise unlike every other time, it made my loose hairs even worse. but now things are good with the rubber bands. i think i just tried to take them out to soon. also an old friend of mine that i recently hung out with called my dreads fake. thats pissing me off cuz i dont know why she thinks they are fake. its not cuz i back combed them, cuz she was origenaly soppost to be the one to do that for me. i have noticed that the fact that they are kind of short (like 6 or 7 inches) and still have rubber bands in them alot of people dont see them as dreadlocks. i guess cuz when you think of dreads you think of very long dreads with no rubber bands and none pointy tips. oh well. anyway, thats my rant...

i don't have dreads but the thought has been running through my head for a looong time and i think its about time.

i have a question though, where do most of you work?
im a waitress at Dennys and have worked there for 2 years now. i talked to my boss about it the other day and asked if they could fire me for having dreads and i was told yes. first thing i thought was...DISCRIMINATION! but alas...discrimination only counts against sex, race, ethnicity, religion etcetc. not hair color, hair style or the way that u look. i tried to convince them that i was rastifarian but that didnt work. heh
he was just a shift manager not my general manager so he doesnt have the power to fire me, but i asked anyway to see if the possibility was there.

so i was curious to where u people worked in hopes that i may be able to find another job (possibly even a BETTER job) while having my dreddies.

thanks in advance =]

i think its funny how everyone is all like "you cant use any shampoo with residue" yet almost all of us use dr bronners. and that leaves your dreads smelling strongly of whatver scent it is for days. so obviously there are residues in dr bronners....

There's been discussion about the dreads/job thing recently. I've got an interview on monday for what could be a pretty good job - running the online version of the local newspapers.

I'm really hoping my appearance isn't going to have any effect on their decision, but I can't see how it would because I think I'd probably be locked away on a computer in a dark room for most of it...

I'm taking in my portfolio of artwork/design and website clients in, which I think is pretty good.. soo I'm half really confident but also a little worried!!

*fingers crossed*
