Also, I'm going through a pretty big transition in my life, just got out of a 1yr9months relationship and moved back home to DC, where people are generally less accepting of looking different than my little hippie college or in Portland, where I was living earlier this summer. I feel like I stand out a lot more and not in a good way. I also feel like in order to accomplish my career goals, especially in this town, they're incredibly detrimental. Not to mention worrying about whether anyone new I meet will be attracted to me... I haven't had a low like this regarding my dreads in a long time (I've had them for 3 years now) and this time I don't know what to do about it.
I'd appreciate advice, and maybe pictures of post-dreads haircuts?
My hair doesn't usually stick out like that on one side, it just did that for some reason while I was taking the picture :D
