dread Wax: Lesson learned. Not even ONCE. *updated with promised photo*
Thank for this post. I'm dreading my hair on Saturday (YAY!!!!) and am very glad I found this before hand!
I think the main reason why people do things like this is because they run into the first site and go "OMG I WANT DREADS!" then they run off and do this stupid crap without doing more research. IMO You should always research something that's going to change your life/look in a permanent way, instead of following the lemmings off the cliff. I was lucky that I ran into this site while I was obsessively researching dreadlocks.
You know what i think is funny you mention drBonner's Soap alot. i've always used it to clean my piercings and sterilize them. It's a really small bottle though but i think i should try it for my hair one of these days. instead of my shampoo i've also been thinking of using the baking soda some guy i met at hurrican harbor told me to do that.
