Loose ends??


General Talk

Hey the tips of my hair isn't really locking up. Probably because I had a habit of kind of doing a light TNR whenever I separated my dreads after washing my hair and what not, which would kinda push the knots up some. Anyways I quit messing with it much and the ends aren't really dreaded.

The rest of the 'dreads' are semi-decently knotted up in certain places.

Also I got some dreads I felt were huge in the back, they already consisted of 3-4 mini dreads that combined in to one. I left my hair alone for like a week and two of them connected together. That section feels like as big a round as the top of a pop can. Could probably fit 2 or 3 of those sections across the back of my head lol. The rest of the back isn't so large though, should I be worried im going to have a baseball bat sized dread there?

Interesting stuff...The destruction left behind.


General Questions

So yesterday I was doing some volunteer work for the national forest place near by.

Anyways, basically we went out to a site that was being rehabilitated if you would by planting a bunch of trees.

They showed us some pictures from back when it was being used to mine coal in the early 1900's no trees in the area, just a flat land with nothing really growing.(Pretty sure it was a forest before that, they come in harvest all the trees, and then start digging up all the coal.)

Anyways, the way they pile the dirt, and destroy the surrounding forest leads to the destruction of the water flow, streams etc. Basically the water instead of traveling down the hill sides etc, would instead sink into the mine shaft, cause sink holes to collapse etc.

This basically caused the streams to stop flowing, as the water was being trapped in the mine shafts instead of working its way down the mountain etc. and creating sink holes and everything else.

The idea from what I can tell was they planted like 2,000 trees. I guess they are hoping the trees would absorb the water before it sunk down in to the mine shafts or built up and got to heavy causing sink holes.

Anyways apparently this problem is going all over the place in this area. And probably a lot of other areas too, even when you look at the hill sides etc they look completely un natural.

Its kinda crazy to see the aftermath, and also helping to restore it, but not really knowing if in the future what you are doing will cause more issues.

I am pretty sure the tree's they were planting were not a natural tree found in that area? Basically they were on their 2nd or 3rd grow season, and we just went around re-staking the ones that fell over, and cleaning up the crap out there from the ones that disappeared. (They put a plastic housing around the tree's as they start to grow to keep deer from rubbing against them etc. and then zip tied that to a stake that helps hold it up.)

Was cool though to be standing there looking at pictures of how the place looked 100+ years ago, and its not even recognizable at all...=D I can only imagine once all those trees grow up.

Hmm, hair "un-dreading??" To cut or not to cut.


General Talk

Wrote myself a counter argument. TAKE THIS DARK LONELY STATE OF MIND!

So they say there is someone meant for everyone...Like someone is supposed to 'find you.' or you are supposed to 'find someone' ...And its obvious in that situation the attraction will at first be physical.

So you can overstand...how can anyone find you, when everyday you practice rituals to change or hide who you are, hair cuts, make up, starving yourself to stay skinny...

You see, if god showed your soul mate what you were supposed to look like, WHAT HE CREATED YOU TO LOOKLIKE, and said go find this person, so you may attain happiness. They would walk right past you, not even noticing a resemblance.

-All Natural/Natural Selection/LongHairDon'tCare- Go on painting your face like a clown to impress your boss, or your coworkers...I'll hold on to my natural look, and perhaps impress my creator.

General Talk

Yeah I don't legit think my hair is going to make or break me. Hell It can't put me in any worse of a position then I am in already. And I don't mind looking a lil wild, I'm not trying to impress anyone anyways XD.

And realistically I probably wont cut it, just discouraging to see the progress I did have disappear.

Plus I am slipping in to my F the world mode. Except I mainly only find ways to damage/spite myself. So it was probably one of those things, I know I can take away something I been striving for type deal =D.

But I do think I was having some false dreads from residue and crap in my hair, dandruff getting trapped in the ends of my hair etc and probably washed it out with the dead shampoo.

I feel it...And Maybe its just to short to dread still. But long enough to look messy.

My bangs only really hang down to my nose. But the hairs around my ears and stuff that rest on my shoulders look like a spirally mess, but I have to move all my top layers to see those =D. So maybe that is a good sign.

Either way unless I can find some work looking like this I'll be living under a bridge before my hair stops looking crazy.

General Talk

Well, I don't think my hair agrees with dreading??

Been growing it for however long, probably can tell by looking at the pics of the last time I cut it, but anyhow.

A while back, maybe 4 or 6 months ago? Possibly longer I had TnR'd some of it, but took those out after a week or two because they felt horrible.

At some point, probably the last few months, I seemed to have a lot of hair that was knotted up at the ends, and would be loose up to the scalp with some loops here and there.

It seems however like all of those went away? If I look around I can find maybe 2-5 'dreads' which just really have the ends locked together, where as there used to be a ton there like 20+ just in that one area.

It seems like now that I have been keeping my hair more clean with dread soap etc, it caused all of the dreads that were formed to come out, now I am back at square one, and pretty much just look like a fool for no reason...I'm guessing either my hair was to short to be dreading to begin with, and now that is free and clean its worked its way out.

Either that, or the ends were really knotting up/dreading because of crap building up in my hair from not getting it as clean, and now that I washed all that out, I washed away my 'dreads' also.

So I basically just look a hot mess for no reason. Double that with the fact that I am currently unemployed, no one around here can relate to dread locks what so ever, so that doesn't really help. And factor in my dwindilling spirituality, and I am left wondering rather or not I should just chop my hair off, its really annoying not being able to keep it out of my eyes and when the tops of it wash a certain way it can look pretty stupid when the scalp is visable.

=D

Maybe I should not let my hair be all clean and soft, I dunno.

Question about that Rainbow gathering thing and Volunteer work.


General Talk

I keep necro'ing this thread =D. But I never could find anything to volunteer help or whatever to that American rapid response thing. All dead links.

Does it even still exist?!? If you know any people who can steer me in the direction of some kind of volunteer work send them to me =D or if they are going to that gathering thing etc.

Question about that Rainbow gathering thing and Volunteer work.


General Talk

Ok cool I will check that through google.

And I would have to find out if someone else was going to that gathering that early so I could link up with someone once in the area or prior as opposed to running around the woods solo getting lost :-D.

Or at least find out where I can talk to other ppl that will be going there that early to know when I could show up to help if I am able to travel to where its at. I think when I looked it up it wasn't set on a location just yet??

Anyways I'd most likely have to fly near by and try to work my way out in that direction XD. Would probably take some creative funding of some sort, lol.

Question about that Rainbow gathering thing and Volunteer work.


General Talk

Thanks for the long reply I'm just quick glancing over it ATM, I will sit down and read more in to it later.

Do you have some links or information on how to sign up my services to the rainbow people thingy :-D. What is the actual correct term?

If at all possible, I would love to get on board with the people who set up and tear these things down. Especially if its a constant year round thing.

As far as volunteering in a kitchen, or to help during tragic events across the states & elsewhere. I would love to do that also. My only concern is being able to stay above water, having a place to sleep etc.

If I am volunteering my time that would make it extremely difficult to stay a float. But if I could find somewhere I didn't need a pay check to be a part of that would be amazing. I do want to make sure its something that I am actually staying active, productive, and helping people though. I don't want to just wind up being stagnant and floating through life :-D.
