Post Your Congos!


Dreadlock Picture Gallery

This is pretty funny, I've got to update my OP

3 years later That lock doesn't even resemble that picture, and I think I'm down from 50 to maybe like 41 maybe 42 locks,

including a pretty large one of the left of my head,

I notice I rarely have to separate them, aside from the ones in the back every few months.

Completely Agree, Dreadlocks do not discriminate, they come to all who allow them to happen.

Dr Bronner Hemp Protest (another reason I like this soap)


Dread Products

Sorry if this was already posted but wanted to share this for those who might've missed it,

Pretty Bold and Interesting of him to do

(From the Video info)

"WASHINGTON, DC -- David Bronner, CEO of Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps, America's top-selling natural brand of soap and an importer of more than 20 tons of hemp oil per year from Canadian farmers is staging an action at the White House today to protest Federal policy that prevents U.S. farmers from growing industrial hemp. Mr. Bronner has explained that he is waging a "beer bet" with President Obama that the 12 industrial hemp plants growing in soil he is harvesting today inside a large secure steel cage on H St. at 16th St. NW Washington, DC are not marijuana and have no drug value. Grown from Canadian industrial hemp seed, the plants per Canadian regulations contain less than 0.3% THC and have no potential use as a medicinal or recreational drug.

The hemp oil pressed from hemp seed contains high amounts of the omega-3 Essential Fatty Acid, which the American diet is chronically deficient in and doctors traditionally recommend certain types of fish to obtain. In Dr. Bronner's soaps, the hemp oil imparts smooth lather and less drying after-feel. Fifth generation soap-maker David Bronner, equipped with a hand-powered oil press, is harvesting the hemp seed from the plants and pressing fresh hemp oil, which he will serve on hemp bread to the public and media, in full view of the White House. Mr. Bronner is enclosed with the plants and equipment in a locked, steel bar cage, to prevent interruption by police until the entire harvesting and pressing process is complete.

"The industrial hemp plants I am harvesting and processing into oil cannot produce a high of any kind, but according to the Obama Administration I'm in possession of approximately 10 pounds of marijuana," says David Bronner, President and CEO of the California based Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps. Mr. Bronner says, "President Obama's US Attorney who handles drug cases in Washington, DC will not be able to prove my hemp has any more drug value than a poppy seed bagel. The Obama position on hemp is not science-based or good for the US economy. We've lobbied and campaigned for over a decade and feel abandoned by our President who as an Illinois state legislator voted twice for hemp cultivation."

Bronner adds, "I expected more from President Obama. The President can simply direct the Department of Justice to respect industrial hemp grown pursuant to existing state hemp programs, such as North Dakota's. Everyone is sick and tired of America's bankrupt policy on hemp that forces our company to send well over a hundred thousand dollars every year to Canadian farmers. I had hoped that President Obama would not succumb to drug warriors' hysteria regarding hemp. I really don't know what else to do to get our 'Chief Law Enforcement Officer' to take a rational science-based approach to hemp policy in this country."

Mr. Bronner's protest is a direct action in response to a recent White House statement falsely conflating non-drug industrial hemp with marijuana. This intentional conflation by White House officials is used to justify a policy that prevents American farmers from growing industrial hemp, even under existing state licensing programs. Information on the new regressive White House hemp policy can be found here: http://votehemp.com/alerts/vote_hemp_alert-20120503.html "

He says I should start all over


Dreading Methods

Hey Sierra I thought the same about mine to,, all I can say is that things like that will grow on you after time, and you won't think they looked weird or odd,

sections like that just tend to form to your facial structure and fit you perfectly until people say they couldn't imagine you any other way,

just my opinion, hair looks good anyways :)

dandruff shampoos and dreads the real truth


Dread Products

lol you definitely don't *NEED* zinc or any chemical made soaps to control dandruff OR itching, I've learned to control mine with just peppermint and tea tree oil in a lavendar or peppermint soap, and I haven't had an issue with dandruff in almost two years now, thanks in mostly part to different washing recommendations off this site.

simply learn the right proportions to use wash your hair with, (it's not difficult or rocket science) and you're gonna be fine.

site should be pretty fast now


General Talk

site is looking really good, however i think 2000 characters of the thread showing below every topic is kind of an eye sore to the front page, I think cutting it down would make it look even better,everything else is looking great tho, good job!

Humid climates


General Questions

the salt that remains in your hair would actually prevent mold from growing (not long term) but long enough for your hair to dry at least. i live in florida and though the summers are miserable and humid I haven't had any problems even when i went to the beach constantly
