I'm so glad that my office doesn't have a dress code, so I can rock out any natural hairstyle that I want! It's always great that I don't have to wear a monkey suit and pretend to fit into society's regulations :)

white people with dreadlocks


History and Religious Significance

I really don't see any point in justifying locks with culture or 'race' (what ever definition of race you use). It all boils down to belief and belief is personal you can't force it on any one ( well some might try but history has taught us the negative outcome of forcing belief).

All I have found was that some Gauls would putchalkin their hair andbackcomb it when theywentinto battle to make them look fierce but nothing about vikings orNorsebut it is possible that some did have locks.

Does anyone have any references about viking/norse wearing their hair in dreads? From what I've read viking/norse were very uptight about maintaining their hair and beards and that the belief of them wearing locks or uncombed hair stemmed from propaganda to make them appear barbaric and uncivilized.

Now the ingredients. This is for 972.9 grams (dry) 1213.7g wet , it will be all in grams sorry I'm Canadian lol.

Boil 266.6g of water with some fresh thyme leaves then let cool down to room temp filter out the thyme leaves. The water is for your caustic solution later on. Put on you safety gear and prepare 120.12g of caustic soda set it aside in a safe place you will mix it in the water later on.

Take some Olive oil 340g, Castor oil 30g, coconut oil 230g, cocoa butter 100g and sesame seed oil 100g. Mix all of these ingredients, your are going to need to heat it up because of the coconut oil (solid at room temp) and cocoa butter. After it is all melted and mixed let it cool to 65f. this is your base oils

While the base oils are cooling down prepare your essential oils that your are going to add last. I used 8g tea tree 8g lavender and 8grosemary keep this for later. Take about 20g of your mixed base oils and add 10g of green clay that you will mix in later (after your essential oils)

Now prepare your caustic soda solution take your cooled boiled water (266.6g) and add very very carefully with all of your protection on 120.12g of caustic soda to your water not the other way around I repeat the soda in the water. It's going to get warm so be careful. Let it cool down to 65f and very slowly pour the solution in your base oils keep all of your safety gearon whenyou do this ( base oils must be at 65f too). Take a hand held mixer (do not us it for food after ever) and mix it all up until it starts to have theconsistencyofpudding. Now you can add you essential oils and green clay.

When everything is well mixed pour it into some molds the best kind aresiliconemolds but plastic will do. Cover up your molds and in a well ventilated room where no one sleeps in . Let you future soap rest for 24 hours. After 24 hours you can take your soap out of the molds with your gloves on very important. Place your bars on a wire rack and let it sit for 4 to 6 weeks this is to let all of the caustic soda evaporate. Voila your soap is ready.

Make sure that all of your soap making utensils are only used for soap making. Wash it all with your gloves on andneutralizeevery thing with whitevinegar. If you by any chance you get some caustic solution on you use the vinegar to neutralize. Be very careful and I do not take any responsibility if something happens it is all at your own risk...good luck.

Okay well like SE said making this stuff can be dangerous so if you do not know how I suggest a course and you must usesafetyclasses rubber gloves and clothes that covers harms and legs. Once the caustic soda( sodium hydroxide) is in solution it becomes very corrosive. In solid form it is also corrosive and you do not want to drop any on thefloor if you do sweep it up right away. I stronglyrecommend doing this in a work shop or any room that kids or pets have no access. Thematerialyou use should never be used after for food, what you use for making soap is for thatpurpose only and nothing else. Use whitevinegarafter toneutralizeevery thing after you wash your soap making utensils. Always use gloves and safety classes when you handle the caustic soda. When you mix the caustic soda you put the soda in the water not the water in the soda veryimportantif not it cause a violent reaction. When you mix the soda in the water you pour it in slowly. Once the soda solution is ready it becomes hot so you must let it cool down to 65f before you mix it in your oil mixture. It lets out some fumes when you mix the soda in the water so do not do it with you face over it. After all this still interested? Lol! I guess I must add that this is all just info..I do not take responsibility for any thing that can go wrong. I got to go now but later today I will give you the rest of the info. This first part is just to let you know some of the risks involved.

Did not know if this the rightcategorybut I did not want to put this underdreadlocks products because it is not really a product because it's not for sale...just wanted to share with you this alternative if you know how to make soap.I liked the dreadlocks shampoo bar (the one everyone is talking about) for a while but it started to make my scalp hitch and it would get oily really fast...my skin is sensitive so it's hard to find good soaps and shampoos for me. Well I decided to take a soap making course and made my own shampoo bar and it works!!! Really well too. So if some one is into making soap I can share my recipe with you.
