Rasta Empire Encouraging the use of "Knotty Boy" wax!


dread wax and dread kits recovery

and besides if you're going to grow dreads why put wax in it? Part of growing dreads is to see what your hair actually comes out to be, I understand that people use different methods tho its all good

Climate Change


General Talk

That's a great idea! We need to involve anyone who is interested not only to raise awareness but to start action across the boards. We can start getting people together and rising to build a new world for the generations to come.

Climate Change


General Talk

Hey, Samson here and I wanted to bring awareness to a serious problem that I think is being overlooked by many. This Earth is all we have and I feel that our future generations (our kids) will suffer the consequences of the actions we take today. The climate in which we live in is changing radically and no one really knows why. If we keep living oblivious to our surroundings this planet that we love, admire, and cherish will decay and crumble beneath our feet. I'm asking you to be the change you wish to see in the world. So that your kids can enjoy this beautiful Earth just like we did.

Samson's Thoughts


General Talk

Hey dreads I've been growing my hair for about eight or nine months now with no single dread formed yet. It's okay I know I am one of those dreads that is going to have to wait a long time to see progress, but that is not why I'm starting this thread today.

Now I'm growing my dreads all natural which means that there is no form of manipulation. My hair grows and dreads ( at least that's the philosophy) Now I rinse my hair everyday and wash my hair about every 3 to 4 days. My friends are telling me that I should not be putting water in my hair at all, it will dread quicker that way which I think they have a point because my hair will just knot faster. Also I wear a tam from time to time. My friend also wears a tam but NEVER takes it off because he says hair grows faster in the dark.

I know there are thousands of ways to grow dreads but it seems that people always want to correct somebody's method. Anyways this kid got me thinking about these things and I want to ask you if he's right. Should I not rinse my hair everyday and cover it with a tam? Will my dreads form faster this way? Or should I continue the way I'm going and realize that its just going to take a while.

Yeah, I don't feel an ill way about it. I'm just saying whats on my mind and im noticing im being called a Rasta like everywhere I go. I'm cool about it tho I know people will always be belligerent, particularly when it comes to something they don't understand.

It seems that when people see dreadlocks they automatically think Rasta. At first, I had no problem with it but as time goes on I feel my identity is being misconstrued as something that I'm not. Don't get me wrong I love the Rastas and I respect everything about their culture but I feel that dreadlocks shouldn't pertain to only one group of people. If only the common person knew that dreadlocks were being embraced as far back as time can go. The Egyptian kings(Pharoahs),the Persian princes, the African tribe leaders all grew their dreads. Keep your culture, grow your dreadlocks, don't be afraid of the wolf pack.

Everywhere I go in these city streets I hear " Yo, Rasta whats good?"
I turn around, acknowledge them and keep going with a smile on my face. Maybe being called Rasta is growing on me but either way I know what my culture is and I'm proud to continue my journey of hairy proportions. Would love to hear your thoughts on this subject. Peace.

Noob seeking advice


General Questions

Hey Dalton, I'm in the same boat that you're in. I'm growing my hair as natural as you can grow it with no type of manipulation to get insta- dreads. It is a very slow process as many will tell you, you may literally feel time. I wash my hair every three days with tea tree oil. Stay strong my brother and soon your locks will form.

Money or Dreads?


General Talk

It's true what you say Ryan, looking at the world from a realistic point of view one will just cut off all this hair and make tons of money. However, that idea doesn't sit right with me, knowing that I can cut my hair in turn for some money will make me feel ill and regretful that I sold my divine right for some paper that can only buy me things I don't need. I thank you for your outlook because you have made me see things from a clear perspective.
