TREATMENT FOR HEAD LICE?


Dread Maintenance

oh no!!! any time im with a child or my child is with a child and they scratch their head i get super paranoid!. for the henna, i would leave it on at least 3 hours. im not using any source info oin that... hennaforhair.com might have more accurate info. SE would have the correct way to use alcohol. and i do know its rubbing alcohol.

hi zombiekitten.. well i have absolutely no idea if they dont attach themselves to chemically treated hair or no... but as barrellady said they are more common amongst school kids who constantly hug and play around with each other. and the buggers crawl from 1 head to other and spread..

i had my lil cousin at my place 2 days back and i was cuddling and playing with her for quite long.. (she is cute lol). but i observed she was scratching her head quite a lot and asked her mom what was wrong with her.. her mom said she has lice.. and i was like WTF!!!! (with my jaw dropped down :P)

immediately as they left i posted this discussion lol. :P

is it true that lice don't generally attach themselves to chemically treated hair?

I'm in GA too! I either put mine up or just wear less clothes to make up for having them down. We are about 1.5 hours from the beach and we go all the time! :)

henna can work. it suffocated them. but i recently read about a new 'super lice' that has become resistant to traditional treatments. not sure if that applies to henna and alcohol though.

Life Issues Facing Dreads

perhaps not quite racist...but vERY STEREOTYPICAL. and thats wrong. i dont care how many poser fucks hes run into. he probably was too disgusted to actually talk to those 'dirty white kids" to find out what they were actually like, so he needs to look at the attitude of his heart and ask himself if hes holy enough to reign that kinda judgement on people who might have actually been intellectually stimulating and bathed regularly.
i get it. i dont like it when i see super manicured dreads that are probably full of wax and the person probably thinks my dreads are inferior. but i would not tell them that they shouldnt have dreads. i would just hope they found this site or actually listened when someone told them the truth about over manicured dreads...
JavaLizard said:

Just wow.
I understand feeling hurt by it, but what he said wasn't racist. And in America Bob is black, as a mixed race guy with mix raced kids, we are black. Racism and stereotypes are a hard thing to live with. In his round about way he was simply saying whites don't look good with dreads. Blacks didn't look good with the high cut flat top. (That was a horrible phase) he was simply pointing out a look, perception.

As a black person, who is mixed but since we live in America I'm black, I'm very accepting. But just because someone says whites shouldn't have dreads, doesn't make them racist. I bet he would say Mexicans, Asians, and others if he ran into them. It sounds like he runs into the familiar rich white kid wanting to rebel. It is more a social type casting. It is annoying yes, like when my white niece is like, dude grow a fro, yeah you'd look awesome with a fro.

In truth all black men shouldn't shave their heads, some blacks shouldn't grow a fro, some white should sport a high and tight, etc., some times we ought to consider there is a fashion side to things as well. Not every man can or should grow a beard. I know the fashion side doesn't get brought up a lot here in a non negative view, but it is something we all have to accept, when we don't look good society sees that.

First of all, this person, whoever wrote that article is such a racist. Second of all, this person, is very ignorant on the history of dreads.

Bob Marley was of mixed race, his father was a White English Jamaican and his mother was an Afro-Jamaican. This is a quote from Bob Marley, "I don't have prejudice against meself. My father was a white and my mother was black. Them call me half-caste or whatever. Me don't deh pon nobody's side. Me don't deh pon the black man's side nor the white man's side. Me deh pon God's side, the one who create me and cause me to come from black and white"

A man so full of love for everyone, sang with his inner soul, and wanted this world full of love, and yet there are still comments that separate us. IGNORANCE and SHAME ON ALL RACISTS, no matter who it comes from.

How did this person even come to the conclusion that Caucasian dreads are dirty? That we don't brush our teeth even. I think that they crawled out from under a rock in a cave and met up with a "White" roomie who was just as filthy as them due to living in that cave.

Prejudice comes with ignorance, Why do they assume we like Reggae so much that we want to be a Rastafarian? Why do they assume we never wash? Why do they assume anything? Because that ignorant person has not opened up their heart to Human Beings. Because they never sat down with a Dreadie with long, beautiful locks to have a chat and a cup of coffee. Black or White, there are Dread Heads out there that are filthy, due to homelessness or whatever, but it is not a Caucasian thing only, it is a down on your life thing.

I hope that if that person has children , the children will be able to one day teach them what love is all about to fellow human beings. The comments do not piss me off, they truly break my heart. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE If everyone had this for one another, the world would be such a better place.

fuck that guy. thats my first reaction. lol just extreme ignorance/arrogance. he speaks like hes god of nappy hair or some shit. but i cant believe how hard it is to convince people that all hair just dreads on its own. people give me this stupid look when i say "it does itself". its really hard for people to see how straight fine hair could just dread. but its because its been engrained in everyones heads that only black peoples hair can dread. im really kkinda tired of it. just a bunch of people running their mouths off about things they have never experienced. i guess that makes them an expert.

yeah i have noticed that getting it off the neck makes a huge difference. all those loose hairs that get trapped and dread make them pretty dense. its nice in the winter unless theyre wet.

yeah other people saying "dreads" in reference to me made me realize how much its changed!!

Kelsey Cliche! said:

Same here, knotlady! I always kept my hair in a ponytail before and I enjoy my hair so much more now. I'm at a lil over 15 months and it has been slow going, but in the last few months I've been getting more people actually calling them dreads and complimenting them. So fun!

yeah i remember getting super excited about new knots. i still do i still have new hair and the hair by my ears isnt dreaded as much. whats also super fun is watching how that little knot makes many more knots. i would wake up and feel the sections every day to see what was new. i still have new things. its a constantly changing hair style!
