That is wrong, esp for people of color. Dreadlock for people of color with nappy hair, the hair just tangles up and all you do is guide that process. You guide the process, you end up with neat dreadlocks, you ignore that process, you end up with rastafarian kinda dreadlocks- those ones, I think no one accepts them. Now I do not know lots of what white people do, but from the YouTube clips I have seen around, I think it will take time before nursing accepts them. That does not mean that black males with dreadlocks will get jobs that they qualify without a hitch, it is still very delicate. I know the sisters have no problem at all, but for the males- the first impression thing and what is associated with dreads very disappointing..
