africa's best herbal oil?


Dread Products

Thats true and a little goes a long way with organic oils, so ultimately it could be best to spend the extra bucks for some real quality stuff.

If you have hair like i am guessing you do, less is definately more with that stuff. The benefits of using it on your scalp could be great though. The only reason i stopped using it is cause there was this one ingredient in it, that was some sort of synthetic nasty sounding name i forget what. But for the money its good stuff.

Five months in and no hairline dread-action


Dreading Methods

So given my heritage i admit it is a tad disappointing to have to post this, but be that is it may i will, lol. I am like five months in now and the front of my hairline in the very front still hasn't dreaded. It is tangled sure, but certaintly not like the rest of my head. Increasing or decreasing washing hasnt seemed to help nor hinder it. I almost wonder if perhaps the shampoos that i use, though excellent for hair lacking moisture, are in fact "too moisturizing" but then again if they were, the rest of my head would not have made such excellent progress.

Im not sure what else to do at this point. Tips? Particularly for Halfrican hair?

Dreads & racism


Life Issues Facing Dreads

If someone said "I do not think red heads look good with dreads", it would be a generalization, and a ignorant one, yes. Just like if someone said "White people do not look good with dreads", it would be a generalization, and an ignorant one. Racist? Maybe. Ignorant? Definately.

Humm I can see why some one might see this has "racist" but I think this is just a question of personal taste oropinion. For example if some one would say " I do not think red heads look good with dreads" would this be considered "racist"? Now some might say that red hairedpeopleare not a "race" but once again I must ask the question how does one define race?I agree that the comment maybe lacks a bit of maturity (no offence ) but having anopinionon looks is not being "racist". Racism in myopinionisbelievingthat there is such a thing as race when it comes tohumans. Sorry for going off topic.

Wow someone here actually said white people look better with dreads and in the same breath said they are not racist? Where do you live where "black" people would yell at you for having your hair in a certain fashion? No matter how you try to jewel it up, saying that ANY race looks better with something is completely ridiculous. How can you judge an entire race simply on a hair style and say that NO ONE in that race looks good like this?

White people do not look better with dreads. Black people do not look better with dreads. It is the "individual" that looks better with dreads. You dig what i am saying.

In my opinion, "white" people look better with dreads. I dont't know why. I'm not racist at all. I love everyone all the same, but I think it's because I see more caucasion people with dreads than african americans. Since mine are babies, I'm afraid of "black" people coming up to me and yelling at me for having them. Especially at school. I just did them so no one at school has seen me yet (kids at my high school are so bad. They will make fun of you over the littlest things). But yeah. I don't know what it is with people though. I guess since african americans think it's "their hairstyle" that they need to defend it? I don't know though. Everyone's different. Love and harmony to you all <3

white people with dreadlocks


History and Religious Significance

Give it time i think the idea of american caucasions with dreadlocks in societyis still kinda in its infant stage so to speak. It will become more socially acceptable i am sure. Then it will not be seen as necessarily a "black thing" but a "human thing".

Honey


Dread Maintenance

A cat i worked with who reccomended the use ofhoney showed me a pic of what his dreads looked like. Before he cut them off. They looked closer to a hairstyle Sid Viscious might of worn; all spiked out and stiff as a board. Dont bother with that. Generally a fairly safe rule of thumb is if you wouldnt put it on your face, then it doesnt go on your dreads.
