Meatless March Madness


Dreads and Diets

This month I have stopped eating meat entirely and I am really enjoying it.I made a page on facebook called Meatless March Madness and I invited a few close friends and people that I thought would be interested and doing it with me.

I did it partly to mark it off of my "bucket list" but then when everyone said "You'll never make it a month" or " We'll see how long this fad lasts" it made me more determined to stick with it.

I am a Taurus and naturally very bullheaded and when my mind is made up about something, it is GOING to happen one way or another. And I can honestly say that it has not been terribly difficult to keep it up.

I do miss meat sometimes but I truly only miss turkey and fish. Everything else I could do without. I wanted to pose a question to you all about your experiences with becoming vegetarian (to those of you that are Veggie's)

What are your opinions on becoming a complete vegetarian? Is it something that was hard to keep up forever or is it something that takes a lot of practice to make it part of your everyday life? I do want to continue being a vegetarian because I have found so many recipes that are so much better without meat bogging it down.

Also everyone (mom, dad, and boyfriend etc..) keeps asking me if I am going to continue on with it after the month is up. So there's that.. :))

Please lend me your thoughts on the matter. :)

Peace..

misconceptions about dreads


General Talk

Bahahaha!!! Love it.. I really wish people would just accept you for who you are instead of criticizing your decisions and way of life..

I once told someone that when/if I have a baby that I'm not going to comb there hair, and they told me they would slap me if I did that, the same person after seeing me after a few months was like WOW you look horrible, to which i replied you should see my armpit hair! LOL (this was coming from a family member,)

misconceptions about dreads


General Talk

Like you said, you don't wash your hair, you're homeless, you don't have a good job or a job at all, you probably smell, you're probably lazy.. EtcMost of which are false, depending on the person..

HELP! Very Short, Bridesmaid dread up-do?


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

Oh my gosh your dreads are too cute! Also, I'm in the same boat you're in.. My bro is getting married and his fianc is white, the wedding isn't until September but anyways.. I would suggest getting one of those hair clips that as a flower on it that would match your dress.. Fix it right above your ear and you should be good to go.. :)I agree with Rachel, if the bride is more concerned with the bridesmaids, she has bigger problems.. Best of luck!

What Should I do?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I would just leave it alone and stop using so many different moisturizers and whatnot. Have you tried the baking soda wash and AVC rinse? It works wonders and makes your dreadies nice and soft..

zigzag dread question?


Introduce Yourself

A bunch of my dreads are zig zag, and just as many are cylindrical.. I think it just happens more often in curly hair, and its just your dreads trying to decide what they want to look like.. Not too sure how to make them look that way though.. Aside from braiding them and sleeping in them like that and unbraiding them when you get up.

retwisting dreads locs dangers


Help! Save My Dreads

By useless, I was meaning it doesn't help anything.. I wouldn't recommend it because when I was Retwisting my dreads, I could feel them becoming weak.. No bueno.. So yeah SE, there is no need for it because of the future harm it could cause

soaring eagle said:

if it wass only useless it wouldnt be a problem

but its way beyond useless

its devestatingly harmfiul

yet its pushed as a must for tidy dreads

ande the real irony is tidy is defibned as the early stages of this issue

the thinning roots

the hair pulled into the dread so tightly the scalps receding into each dread

and thy are slowly going balsd pulling out th hair

is my hair too thin to look good with dreads?


General Questions

Everyone looks better with dreads thick hair or thin hair. My sis-in-law had pretty thin hair when she started dreading and now it is so full and lovely.. :)) also, shes white and I also love to see white people with dreads.. Some folks think only black people look right with dreads, but I completely disagree.. good luck!
