my first comment and it wasn't nice:(


General Talk

I agree, they are taught to hate themselves. And that is no bueno. Everyone should be taught to love, especially yourself. When you have a hatred or love for anything about yourself, you tend to turn it out onto other people. So why not turn the love out? And the racism and prejudice goes *both* ways. I think people who are racist these days aren't inherently racist, they are inherently *taught* to be racist or prejudiced, whether it's by family, or by society. I'm a mutt. More of a European mutt, but I'm still a mutt. I hope that one day everyone will realize we have all been stolen from in some form or another, and make a promise to each other to give instead of take. :/ I also hope that one day everyone will realize they were born perfectly, just the way they were supposed to be.

I gotta disagree with you on this part, though. Black people aren't taught to hate white people, they're taught to love white people and anything associated with white people and hate themselves. It's true, though most will never admit it.

As for thinking anything 'black' is theirs, well look at the history. Can you really blame black people for feeling threatened? Stolen from their ancestral homelands, forced to abandon most of their ancestral cultures, enslaved and constantly told to this day everything about them and associated with them is ugly and inferior. Most don't even know where they come from, and black people are told they have NO history and didn't even exist until slavery by non-blacks. Then history is constantly rewritten to make black people look worse, look stupid, and everyone else look good. When black people DO 'claim' something it gets bashed and dismissed as 'ugly' and 'Ghetto' and 'less-than' and just another thing to further separate them from everyone else. That is, until non-black people start liking the same thing and then people want to act like it's so 'new' and awesome and wonderful and beautiful and great and then pretend THEY made it up, even though black people have known about the very same thing for YEARS. To black people, that can be seen as ONCE AGAIN having something taken away from them, not being able to have something that is truly their 'own'. Not only that, but then the blatant disrespect that comes with it; like the rest of the world is saying to them "This is only 'good' if non-black people are involved with it. When black people are associated with it, it's bad and inferior".

I'm not saying it's right or okay, but instead of just dismissing a lot of black people as just hateful racists, try looking at the history and the issues black people have. Black people have a LOT of issues, sadly due to the continued racism and prejudice and stereotypes they have to constantly deal with daily.

If you're still not sure what I'm talking about, I'd be glad to give examples.

I think I can find an extra t-shirt around here somewhere... :D

Desirae Rose said:

After you wash/wet your hair, wrap a T-shirt on your head. That sucks up the extra water. Then, air-dry.

What kind of bar soap are you suggesting? I have an olive oil soap that's lavender EO scented and has oatmeal... and then I have Fels-Naptha. lol.

Bar soap+hair dryer. also, there's this stuff at Walmart and its like sea salt spray. it smells good, and would dry it out. I would say spray it on your hair the days you don't wash it.

Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Thanks Torie. :) I will try the hair dryer, too. I've been driving with both front windows down also. Like I said I know it takes time but I don't wanna go backwards. :) Now, if I can take a shower [weird water leak in the basement :( ]... lol.

Torie Shea said:

Yea, or make some. Damaged hair dreads better then healthy hair, why? Healthy hair is smooth and silky, like one continuious stand, damaged hair has "ridges'' in it, and when ridges from one strand gets caught on the ridges of another strand, it creates a knot type deal. So this process continues and that's when dreadlocks form. If you blow dry it, that will dry up your hair and makes your locks tighter.

If I don't wash every other my scalp gets oily and it drives me NUTS. I will give it another try, though, and see if it changes any. I will have to try not to touch it *at all*, also. Hard to do cuz I like to put it in a loose tie when I'm at work... heh. :D thanks.

At least that's what it seems like. I need to wash my hair at least every other day, and today I only rinsed with cool water... but whenever I get my hair wet it seems to get silky. What can I do to dry out my hair and make it tangle w/o frying it? I know natural dreads take a while, it just seems like I'm going backwards every time I clean my head, kwim?

Does it matter which way you twist?


General Questions

It matters **if you are going to keep twisting them**, I think. Why? Because you may lose track of which ones were twisted clockwise and which were twisted counterclockwise and then you may untwist some of them. I personally would twist only to separate and then leave them alone from there, let them do their own thing.

Thank you gentleman and lady. I think I figured out my problem... I was adding the pic and *then* changing the repeat option, and then it wouldn't budge. Yay. :)
