How do you take your vegan coffee?


General Questions

I don't drink coffee and rarely drink tea.

My breakfast typically is two packages of apple cinnamon instant oatmeal and two of three fairly ripe bananas. Plus five medjool dates when I have them.

Lunch is usually more fruit and a small handful of nuts or a large fruit smoothie. Sometimes it is burrito using the bean dip I make the night before with rice in a large burrito tortilla or a Amy's non-dairy bean burrito.

Dinner is typically a crown of steamed broccoli when I make spaghetti using a home made pasta sauce. My salads are usually chugged (My salads are a small handful of spinach, kale, and red chard pureed in a blender together with at least 8 oz of low sodium v-8 juice.) Twice a week I make pizza using a home made New York style pizza crust, the home made pasta sauce and daiya cheese. Once a week I have a bean dip that is made with one large hass avocado, a small handful of baby spinach, shoestring carrots, v-8 juice, chia seed, dried bell peppers, and three different spices. When the money is available I'll head over to chipotle and get a vegetarian burrito without the dairy and the free guac on the side.

Let me know if you want the recipes for the bean dip, the pasta sauce and or the pizza crust.

Keeping ends unblunted?


General Talk

You will get over the shrinking.

Due to normal hair growth, our dreadlocks go through phases of becoming longer and a phase of shrinking. The longer your dreadlocks get the less often you will notice the shrinking.

Most of the initial shrinking happens within the first year. After that dreadlocks shrink as new kinks and loops form.

will beads help with my crazy lumps?


General Questions

Yes, beads will help. You will like the bumps later, because that is what makes your set of dreadlocks yours and unlike anyone else.

Be prepared to have new bumps forming after your dreadlocks have stopped shrinking and started to grow longer and when sections of untangled hair starts to become a dreadlock.

Dreads and Diets

Just adding this thought to the whole Vegan/Vegetarian, general, conversation.

I am vegan....just for the sake of information.....

There are fruits that can be eaten instead of just vegetables while following a vegan or vegetarian eating lifestyle.

Help with getting dreadlocks for my hair type?


Dreading Methods

Regarding the use of baking soda and water to "Wash" your hair.

Because baking soda doesn't strip away as much of your natural scalp oils as other shampoos do. Expect your hair to be a little bit more oily when you wake up the next morning.

If you choose to "Wash" your hair with baking soda exclusively your scalp will eventually produce less oil and therefore allow you to wash your hair less often.

There is nothing wrong with using baking soda, I personally use the baking soda "wash." Just be informed and know what to expect.

Oh, my hair has a fine texture also.

Two years, and what I've learned.


General Talk

When we stop competing against other people and compete against just ourselves, we enter into the "League of our own."

Dreadlock myths debunked


General Questions

The only thing I have gotten has been: "Are you rasta?" To which I answered, "No, not everyone with dreadlocks is rasta and not every rasta has dreadlocks."

Just Starting Out & What To Expect


Dread Maintenance

Just adding to the information:

Hair growth: Your hair doesn't stop growing. If kinks and loops happen because of hair growth, one could say shrinkage happens because of hair growth also.

Late Intro


Introduce Yourself

At this early in the formation process.....too tight is relative. If you don't like how one or more dreadlocks feel when you squeeze them between your fingers it may be too tight in your opinion.
