I know this is an old thread but I just wanted to add a couple things. I don't think it's so much a bandwagon effect at this site, it's just that spiritual people are drawn to this site rather than DHHQ or other sites. The energy here is more in alignment with us. I can only speak for myself when I say that but I think others would agree. All natural locks is a major theme here and I think many spiritual people would rather go natural (like me!) than go to some salon.
As for the debate, great points have been made but ultimately it's silly to debate spirituality. People feel what they feel. Science is great and all, but it isn't perfect and it doesn't know all there is to be known. As for me, I've experienced things that science can't put under the microscope and I don't need science to affirm any of it.
Here's a funny fact: Ren Descartes, the founder of modern science, began his path after having a dream in which an angel said to him,
"The conquest of nature is to be accomplished through number and measure."
I couldn't have said it better. I was just thinking much the same thing over the last couple of weeks. I've noticed that while I haven't been 100% carefree, I've been able to better deal with the daily junk and work stress. I've stopped worrying about what people think when they see my dreads in a medical office and worrying whether something will be said. I still have plenty of the journey to go as I am only 16 months in, but the changes inside are happening in synch with the visible changes on the outside. :)
