You don’t want to just show up to work one day and be fired for having dreadlocks and I don’t want to be responsible for it! If you’re not sure how to start the conversation, check out this great Letter to Parent and Letter to Employer from the DreadHeadHQ website. They can be a great springboard for starting a dialogue with your employer or boss that will lead to them hopefully approving your decision to get your dreadlocks.
