Embroidery thread. I make one or two wraps a year with it. Color lasts forever!! and I have never had problems with mold. It does take a little longer to dry then hemp but, not much longer.

Wraps

ok so from what ive read in the forums , it seems that hemp wraps are the way to go . unfortunately i cant get my hands on them. soooo what would be the next best thing ?

Yes Spencer...hemp is great to wrap dreads in. I have left hemp wraps in my hair for over a year at a time. I do the x type wrap with hemp.

is hemp an ok fiber to wrap dreads with long term? I thought I heard that it can mold pretty easily...

Does rasta/rastas mean dreads?


General Talk

no , what i meant was the religion of Rastafari. The Rastafarian lifestyle usually includes ritual use of marijuana, avoidance of alcohol, the wearing of one's hair in "dreadlocks", and vegetarianism.

One of the most visible practices of Rastafarians is the wearing of one's hair in dreadlocks. Dreadlocks have several purposes and layers of meaning for Rastafarians, including:

  • the biblical command not to cut one's hair (Leviticus 21:5)
  • the appearance of the lion's mane, representing strength, Africa, Ethiopia, and the Lion of Judah
  • naturalness and simplicity, which are associated with Africa
  • the Rasta's roots in Africa

so apart from the spanish translation , i believe that the word "rasta" does not mean dreadlocks but is highly correlated with the Rastafarian way of life / culture. saying " those dreads are very rasta/rastafarian" is like seeing a girl wearing a hijab and saying that it looks very islamic.

peace ~

Are you using that as a pun? Rasta rejects isms and schisms, they are the opposite of inity(unity). Of course the topic of this thread, so far as I've seen, is just people deciding that dreads are synonymous with rasta, or wanting people who google rasta to see their dreads. Orrrr just plain posers lol.

how exactly do you recommend using the sea salt? do you just mix it in with baking soda and pour it on your head?
