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.

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.

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."

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."

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.

Just starting out. Steer me in the right direction


Introduce Yourself

For the moment.... When your hair gets long enough to tangle from the wind blowing it around your dreadlocks will be in the baby stages of forming.

Wash your hair on a regular basis even if it is twice a week or even once a week. If you just started washing your hair less often your body is beginning to adapt and produce less oil.

If anyone gives you any grief about your hair not being brushed out when it gets longer just tell them you are going for the "Wind blown" look. Most people, especially the women and hair stylist, understand what wind blown hair is and shut up fairly quickly.

In the future. Because your dreadlocks will start to become heavier start doing some neck stretches to build your neck strength up over time.

Because no is better than you at being yourself don't stop being yourself. If anyone tries to beat you at being yourself they will always lose at being you and being themself.

Is there a such thing as too thin


Introduce Yourself

Too thin? No way. Most of my dreadlocks are less than 1/4 of an inch thick with some that are thinner than 1/8th of an inch thick.

The last time I counted I had at least 100 dreadlocks.

Confidence


Introduce Yourself

No one can beat you at being yourself. If they try they'll lose 100% of the time.

We are all unique. Everything about you is unique. From the pattern in which our hair grows out off of your our scalp, the pattern your veins and arteries made when they formed in your body, to the pattern of your irises,

The only thing identical twins share with each other is their bone structure.

Put your confidence in the fact that you are you and no one can be you better than you can.
