My Sons Mother Has Been Breaking Out, (acne/blemish's) Quite a Bit Lately...


General Questions

Neutrogena 2 in1 Fight N Fade Toner. Miracle for african american skin. She'll love me for recommending it. For moisturizing, use extra virgin olive oil on face in small amounts, making sure it's rubbed completely into the skin to absorb it. pat dry the excess oil with a tissue. in a month she should see major results.

Melatonin


Introduce Yourself

I just finished reading this entire thread, I'm gonna make this short. Kelly, there is a serious amount of irony in the fact that you call these people idiots that live in abstract and despite that you are determined to argue with and patronize them to the death. That's such a huge generalization, calling Americans easily offended. How would you feel if I said all Irish are drunken bastards? sounds horrible doesn't it? Leave people to their own devices, no one died and appointed you the new Albert Einstein. No one has to believe what you think and vice versa. Come on man, the things you've said are just unbelievable, I mean, just who cares that much to argue over the internet with people you don't even know. On top of that, you lash out to the person that created the very website you are logging on and verbally abusing people on! I mean, if you don't agree with Soaring Eagle, why the hell are you on his site where you can see what he promotes and believes in?? This isn't the only dreadlocks site on the web. You've gotten the valuable information that you need to have dreads, what else is left to gain? I master in the psychology of human personalities, and I can tell that you just love getting a kick out of letting people know you're the resident expert on everything south of the sun. Just let it go. If you really didn't care and really thought these people were idiots, you wouldn't be spending valuable time on this website arguing with them. Instead, why not go and research that "vastness of the universe" you so dearly covet? Be the person to discover what the world is missing out on! I just can't believe I'm looking at tens of messages from an individual so determined to let EVERYONE else know they're wrong and that's the end of it. Who are you do discredit and chastise to that degree? Just live your own life and leave other people alone man, your personality reeks of asshole and I can't imagine how you are around your affiliates if this is the way you treat people on a computer screen. Good day.

Neglect Tips/Tricks?


Introduce Yourself

The #1 tip is to do absolutely nothing. Idk how old you are but growing up I used to watch Spongebob a lot and there was an episode where Patrick and him were stuck in the forest with a magic conch and no food and they asked the conch what they had to do to escape and it responded to say "nothing," suddenly out of nowhere a food supply plane was crashing out of the sky and dropped all of its cargo into the forest and they had plenty of food to spare. my point without rambling on lol is that it just needs to be washed with no maintenance other than separating, unless you want huge congos. and also leaving it down all the time helps it along way faster than tying it up. peace :)

taking the loooong road.

gave me goosebumps how similar my late teen experience was to yours

Laura Earle said:

Going to be honest here and admit that I didn't read the entire thread, but it sounds like many of you guys are staring down a metaphorical fork in the road right now and need help deciding which way to turn. I always want to encourage someone who's uncomfortable with certain circumstances in their life to take initiative and make whatever changes they feel are necessary, but if you feel uncomfortable with well...everything about your life, and want to let go of it all, you may want to think long and hard before embarking on the new leg of your journey.

Don't want to explain everything here, but basically...I've hated most of the circumstances of my life for as long as I can remember. Dysfunctional family, lying/cheating/scumbag "friends," etc. I tried dropping everything and moving out of my parents' house when I was 18 -- "taking the looong road," I guess. It didn't work out well at all. Money disappeared MUCH more quickly than I had anticipated, the people I moved in with started taking whatever possessions of mine they could get their hands on...it was awful. Six months after moving out, I got into a car wreck and had to move back because I had neither the friends nor financial stability to help me recuperate. I was young, naive, and dependent on others' help...it was just a gigantic fail.

Well, I stayed put for five more years and things showed no signs of improvement. I graduated last August and wanted to pursue a career outside of my hometown more than EVER. So I started job-hunting. I started planning. Started saving my pennies. About six weeks ago, I was finally able to move out again and relocate to a larger city with more job opportunities. Although I haven't started my career yet, I was easily able to transfer my current job which, although not anything amazing, is stable and will definitely support me until I find something better. I haven't contacted anybody in my hometown since and no one has tried to contact me...I am almost completely alone, but I have never felt happier. There is so much to discover here...and I feel like I've finally done something right. :)

Introduction, and a few loc questions.

The main goal is to avoid permanent baldness. other than that you'd be good with your setup.

ABCXYZ said:

I'm not really sure what to compare tight to. If I put my finger through the base, they'll actually come right out. But either way, that's why I'm here. For your opinions.

you can still get that manicured look for your job but for the long term sake of your hair you should definitely loosen the root area a lil bit so they're allowed to breathe. too much scalp showing. your hair type would have been fine without the sectioning and you can buy a tam for your job to cover up your hair if that's an issue

ABCXYZ said:

So now what? Take them down, or just leave them as is and don't touch them anymore? With the occupation I have now, I have to maintain at least a slight "manicured" look. Otherwise I would just freeform. Also, never went to a salon, this is just from information I gathered from various sources on the internet.

!! TAKING THE PLUNGE !!


General Talk

i agree exactly, expecting dreads to be maintained in the early stages is pretty unrealistic. it's a process. you're either all in or should just wait until ready.

Kimberly Eve said:

Hi, I'm a woman doing neglect and wouldn't have it any other way. If you want "maintained" dreads, you're kind of out of luck. Dreads are wild, beautiful, and free <3.
In my understanding, TnR comes undone anyway and mainly helps with sectioning. Sectioning will naturally occur with neglect as would be best with your hair anyway.
Part of my dreading journey is learning to let go a little (or a lot some days. Haha), have patience and trust the process.
I hope you find the path best for you.
