new dread locking gel from dreadlockshampoo.com


Dread Products

Did she TnR that section of hair in the photos or was it just kind of loose hair that she covered in gel and knotted up on it's own?

Has dreadlocks increased your sex appeal?


General Talk

Absafreakinlutely!! My dreads aren't anywhere near being mature yet, still kind of a fuzzy curly mohawky mullety mess. But I just went to a festival last week and it was hilarious how much attention I got, and from women who wouldn't look twice at me the year before when I was clean shaven with short hair. I think it's more to do with the fact that i'm in a relationship with a beautiful woman who I adore (and who also wasn't there) than my hair though, women seem to be able to smell that confidence from a mile away. It was also funny that I seemed to get constant compliments from women, and constant ridicule from men - especially one friend who tried and failed with wax dreadlocks a few years ago :p

Fire wood ash?


Dread Maintenance

Okay, sparked my interest and I just found this lil article on wood ash and another on wiki. Is it worth any further investigation as it relates to dreads?Use wood ashes to:1. De-skunk pets. A handful rubbed on Fido's coat neutralizes the lingering odor.2. Hide stains on paving. This Old House technical editor Mark Powers absorbs wet paint spatters on cement by sprinkling ash directly on the spot; it blends in with a scuff of his boot,3. Enrich compost. Before the organic compound get applied to soil, enhance its nutrients by sprinkling in a few ashes, says the host of radio's You Bet Your Garden, Mike McGrath. Adding too much, though, ruins the mix.4. Block garden pests. Spread evenly around garden beds, ash repels slugs and snails.5. Melt ice. TOH building editor Tom Baker finds it adds traction and de-ices without hurting soil or concrete underneath.6. Control pond algae. One tablespoon per 1,000 gallons adds enough potassiumm to strengthen other aquatic plants that compete with algae, slowing its growth,7. Pump up tomatoes. For the calcium-loving plants, McGrath places 1/4 cup right in the hole when planting,8. Clean glass fireplace doors. A damp sponge dipped in the dust scrubs away sooty residue.9. Make soap. Soaking ashes in water makes lye, which can be mixed with animal fat and then boiled to produce soap. Salt makes it harden as it cools.10. Shine silver. A paste of ash and water makes a dandy nontoxic metal polisher.

No Soap No Shampoo!!!!!!!!!!!!! Bathing with only water


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

great discussion! I've been off soap and shampoo for about a year and a half now and can def attest to how diet effects bo. When I'm doing basic fruits and veges and drinking enough water I smell great, when I hit the meat and any processed crap I def notice the old stench under the arms but i've been using vinegar and just letting it soak on the skin while I brush my teeth and then rinse it off in the shower and that seems to work pretty good. My girlgirlfriend has been off shampoo for about 3 weeks and was asking if bs would be okay for her hair (it's not dreaded) or does it strip oils?Peace guys, love this site!

the truth about crocheting dreadlocks


Dread Maintenance

okay, i've been curious about crocheting (as i assume many other ppl with messy new dreads have been) and i'm one of those people who likes to try something before i decide how i feel about it and after reading as much as i could and watching videos etc. i finally got up the courage to buy a hook and have a go. i decided to approach it by being as gentle and slow as i could and hopefully do as little damage as possible. also i decided to only do one dread, one time and then see how it responded. the result?? there is absolutely no way in hell i would let anyone near me with one of those things EVER. every little bit of motion was mangling and breaking hairs no matter how slow or careful i was. sure there were less loose hairs at the end but man it was like putting my baby in a straight jacket. i got half way through one dread, threw the damn thing in the bin and started praying for forgiveness. ill take fuzzy, healthy, happy baby dreads over hard packed prisoners any day! hope this helps those who are on the fence...

peace :)
