Hey everyone, I was hoping you guys could answer a few questions for me about dreads... I've always loved how they look and feel and just everything about them, and am getting to the point where I really want some of my own. I live in a very dread-friendly city right now, but I'll be moving soon and I'm not sure if future employers (or even my current ones), roommates, etc. would be okay with them. Or they might just not be "right" for me. And shaving my head isn't an option.
So my question is, in the case of an emergency, are dreads possible to brush out completely? I read a post in this community a long time ago saying that was possible, so can any of you tell me your experiences brushing out your dreads, or experiences you've heard of from friends? Is it difficult? What is the condition of your hair afterwards?
