Growing a SCOBY!


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

I have read up on it and I've read a few more recent studies on it and the wiki is misinformed. While improper preparation can be bad, the links to side effects and health issues were based on speculation and newspaper articles with no scientific backing. But thank you for the heads up and I will certainly be careful.

Growing a SCOBY!


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

Hi everyone! So I've recently been turned on to kombucha by some friends and I'd love to have a crack at brewing it myself. I know you need a SCOBY to get started and they can be grown even from store bought kombucha but I'd like to start entirely from scratch so if anyone has any tips it guides to this it would be very appreciated :D

Making residue free shampoo bars?


Dread Maintenance

I've made regular soaps before and handled lye and what not so I have no issue with that but the clay I wasn't aware of. Does anyone know of any other recipes for bars or even liquid shampoo? I'd like to be able to just make up a few bars/bottles and have reserves instead of having to mix my baking soda every time and leave it in for 30 minutes and rinse with ACV every other night. I enjoy doing it once every week or two but for every single wash it gets a bit tedious and as I'm going to uni next year I doubt I'll be able to afford to keep buying Vicki's shampoos :(

Making residue free shampoo bars?


Dread Maintenance

So basically I want to start making my own shampoo/shampoo bars but the only recipes I've seen still require an ACV rinse after use which I really don't enjoy :P Basically if anyone knows Vicki's generic recipe or something similar (so just the plain shampoo minus fragrances so I can add my own) or if Vicki herself is happy to share her recipe with me then I'd very much appreciate it. I'm trying to become as self sustainable as possible and I'm already growing all of the scents that I want for my hair I just need to know how to do the rest :P

All help is appreciated :) Peace and love, Jake

The recent debate i've come across


General Talk

Not 'locks', that's probably the most preferred word for non-african people to use but 'locs' was a word created for and by African Americans to describe their dreads.

I think the real issue that the slightly more educated African American dreadies have is not so much with us having dreads but what we call them, 'loc(s)' was a term specifically created for African Americans to reclaim that hairstyle and separate it from 'dreads and dreadlocks'because the two ideas for where they came from is the Rastafarians having 'dread/awe/respect' in jah or that the slavers who originally enslaved the African people called the look dreadful because it was all knotted up with blood and feces from the boat journey over. And I understand those issues but no one has proposed anther term for non African/ rastafarian people to use.

Okay well if that's the case then yes it'd be good to have multiple people but make sure it's an equal amount on both sides and only extremely mature and respectful people.

I understand that but I think for purely practical reasons, having more than two people will just be a disaster due to the large amount of people streaming and participating in discussion. Perhaps there can be pre-recorded testimonies for crochet/wax victims or supporters that can be played throughout the hangout but I think being connected to too many people is just asking for technical troubles.

It would be good if it were only SE and DreadsUK and there was a live message board/chatroom for the people watching that could be seen by both SE and DreadsUK and then we could have a fast and high quality video feed whilst still allowing people to weigh in/ask questions :) Looking forward to it :)

General Questions

I think lush does some shampoo bars but I don't know how they compare to DLS but most of their stuff is great, I've only ever seen one store in aus though so you might have to get it online
