So I started the Neglect/Natural method!
Welcome to the community and have a great dreadlock journey ahead. Good luck
Thank you everybody for your suggestions. That really helped. I am goin to do a scalp massage right now with jojoba, lavender and tea tree... I have another question though... Do i have to let this stay for a few hours? Or can i go and wash my hair straight away or after a few minutes...?
I want to massage my scalp with the essential oils that i have. But i am not sure which base/carrier oil to use for it. I am having sesame oil, olive oil, aloe vera gel, coconut oil, jojoba oil and almond oil. I am 11 months into natural dreads (almost) with many sections and some close to mature locks. Will it be too conditioning? Which oil should i mix my essential oils in and what should be the amount of essential oil and base oil so that it suits the scalp n hair best...?
Any advice would helpful
Thanx a lot for reading, peace love light and life..
Hello... I have to say, u are a symbol of true strength n will power. You have by now answered all those people who said that you were a lost cause. I am a student of psychology myself, and i know how much tormented a kid may feel when he/she is abused. It lowers the child's self esteem and makes her feel cursed because of which she starts hating herself in most cases.. It can create agitative violent behavior as the kid grows up.. criminalisation of such kids when they grow young can be another major issue.. In ur case maybe the panic attacks were because of the early age abuse. U need a really really patient counsellor to deal with kids who go through sex abuse, main reason being that they are not as mature as grown ups to understand (even when told) that it never was their fault.
Your story n introduction has really filled my heart with multiple emotions. but it has also given me n a lot of those who have read this a sense of hope... You are extremely courageous and im so glad that u are living an independent life where u know how simple things can lead us to happiness and satisfaction. Please keep following ur heart, stay good to urself and ur loved ones the scar will slowly heal. even if it doesn't heal fully, trust me it will only enhance ur beauty. if the panic attacks ever happen again, try breathing deep with ur nose and realeasing with the mouth.. cover ur mouth with ur hands in cupped postion.. (i dont know how to explain ths better) and breathe deep. only and only focus on the word 'relax'..
Keep up with the meditation and yoga.. it really does help in uplifting your mood. and please... keep playing the guitar.. :P Good luck and late welcome.. :P Lol..
Hi Noodle-Doo, i know exactly what u are saying. i too have met n personally known a few good cops. But well there always are exceptions like these and i have to understand that a coin always has 2 sides... I won't change myself just because somebody else is wrong. I won't degrade my standards and values just because someone else is down on their morals.
Thank u loads for the good energies brother. Love and Peace be with u
I've met some decent police, and others who seem to be in it because they like to bully people. The authority of their job gives them some kind of power trip.
Bullies fail if we don't let them get us down, but you're already doing that with your positive attitude.
Try to believe that the good people outnumber the bad in this world. And they're all on your side!!
Good luck if the lawyer leads to any action.
Stay cool and stay strong, dude :o)
Thank u Allan, really appreciate the support and positive energy i get from you and everyone here. What else would anyone need in life i'm getting back to normal life and still hoping to help the cops in whatever way i can if it is for the betterment of my society
Thank u very much.

Hello, moisture causes mold. when your hair stays damp constantly or for very long durations there are chances that mold might set in. this may not be that much of a problem when u are just starting out, but once ur dreadlocks get mature they take much longer to dry and that is the reason why you shouldnt be washing them evryday. Don't even wash them at night because if u sleep with damp hair it increases the chances of mold. Wash them during the day and give enough time for them to dry. leave enough days between washes so that ur dreads are completely dry from inside too. washing 2-3 times a week is just fine..
Dry them under the sun. Sunlight is one the most hostile environment for mold. Also u can use essential oils like lavender, clove, cinnamon or any other oil that has antifungal properties. these kill mold spores. hope this helps.
