Growing a SCOBY!


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

i have been brewing for a while now, and its really really easy, jeg can actually grow your own scoby from a store bought combucha tea, jeus make sure it's only kombuch not added any flavoring:)

1: heat 1 liter of water, ad between 75 and 90 grams of suger and stir until no suger left in the pot.

2: just before the water starts boiling add 1 or 2 teaspoons of organic green tea, and take the pot off the heat to cool for abot 15 minuts, then you filter the tea so that you are left with only the sweet tea.

3: now you let it cool down to room temperature, and put it in a big glass jar.

4: add about 100 - 150 ml. of your store bought kombucha to the glass jar and cover it with a cotton cloth

5: 7 - 20 day and you have kombucha depending on the wether ;)

remember it is not the size of the scoby that determins if its ready or not, so you will have to taste it once in a while, i recomend using the "straw n thump" methode ;D

always make sure to have very clean hands and equipment when brewing kombucha, that way u usually avoid mold, allthough in most cases the scoby is self healing (it can get rid of the mold it self, if its only a little mold)

and keep it away from extreme heat and direct sunlight! ;)

hahaha sounds like they are having endless amount of fun :D it would be great if you could ask them and thank you very much! :)

If they're forming and you're not having any problems, that's great. I'm not qualified to give advice (obviously, haha), but I will see if I can ask his friends what they did. Honestly knowing them I'm pretty sure they probably used actual dirt! Lol, but I'm serious. They traveled a lot, camping out, going to one music festival after another, and I tell you did NOT give one hoot how they looked or cleaned themselves, and were not ordering dread shampoos off the internet! One year, I saw them during the school year, not again til end of summer - DREADED!!! It was too funny (one of them is so big & tall, w/ his bushy head of dreads and size he looked like a real Mountain Man! I did not even recognize him, haha). I'll let you know if I find anything out - I know exactly how you feel, it's a bit rough. But I guess that's why they call it a Journey! Good luck to you!

it says on the back of the can that it also have a more international name (stevensit-clay) if you want to have a look at it:) and well i looked at the makers website, and it does say you can use it all over your body your hair included:)

Renee Stewart said:ternational name

One more thing: if you want more info, you might try the website of the makers of the shampoo. I'm interested too! Or look for reviews online.

Rasul (soap dirt)


General Questions

interesting :) so actually there might be something about the rasul after all ;D well i haven't got that many dreads yet as I'm still only on 3,5 month but I do have two starting to form, and so far no dirt seem to be getting stuck in them :) but is it in fact good at forming and maintaining dreadlocks, i really don't know:D do you have any way of asking ur sons friends or something what they have been using and their experience with using soap dirt :)?

Renee Stewart said:

Wow, I am so glad somebody finally said something about this! I have wondered, since I happen to have had a LOT of problems with shampoos; tried many, many things, and have a nasty goo-buildup problem and am re-doing my dreads:( But to the point, that is the way animals keep their hair clean, is rub themselves all over dirt or sand, which soaks up the oils from their skin and hair, and the dirt kinda falls off. I have seriously wanted to try that! (I knew it would get laughed at, but hey, I've been at the end of my rope, washing new-ish dreads is a pain in the a__!) So, I have not heard of this product, but I will remind all who swear by dreadlocks shampoos, the bars all CONTAIN CLAY! That could be a good thing, could have been what got stuck in my hair, I don't know. My son had a lot of dreadie friends and said lots of them use dirt to wash their hair. He thought that's how you "have" to do it!

Rasul (soap dirt)


General Questions

haha well when you put it that way i guess it does seem kinda odd :D i don't know that's why i started this thread, because there aren't much info about Rasul and dreadlocks out there, so i'm trying to find out if i'm doing this all wrong or if in fact there is something about the Rasul thing :)

Brandi Wilson said:

Natural dirt? Why would you want to push dirt or clay into your dreads? Isn't that one reason we wash our hair...to keep the dirt out? Maybe I'm not understanding but it seems odd.

Rasul (soap dirt)


General Questions

hey everybody :) i was just wondering if any of you know about this product (Rasul)? its a kind of soapy dirt or clay :) the reason why im asking is because i have never seen or heard of anybody els using it for their dreads, but as it is all natural dirt, with the same p.h as your skin i guess it cant get any more natural then that:)? (im using the natural method for my dreads)

what do you think of this product and have you tried it ?

is it any good for dreads?
