White stuff in my locks... HELP!


Introduce Yourself

I get these little whit tips where the hair naturally sheds.
It's like some kind of root sheeth (if thats how you spell it)
It's not noticable to others but it is to me because I'm so aware of them being there. They will also show up a bit more if you have dark hair like me!
Totally normal though

Hey Amanda
Thought I'd just send a quick one. Did you think I was weird for the origional reply I sent to you? lol
It was actually intended for Natalie but I got myself all confused with who was who! (not all too unusual for me)

Glad you replied though!

Thanks Homestar. Thats really helpful.
I was wondering if they were one and the same. Was reading the fairy bottle this afternoon and had intended to track down Dawns ingredients.
You save me a job there!

Hey Amanda
Thanks for the advice. I'm in the uk so don't have easy access to dawn and am flat broke so cant afford any products, let alone the shipping!
Will search around though and see what I can muster up :-)

The problem is, wax actually slows down the process...which is the least of your worries since it never washes out with just soap. The progress I am seeing in my dreads this time around (I am only 2 and a half weeks in), I didn't see with my waxed up dreads for months into it! The wax and palm rolling slowed everything down.

Since you are 4 months in, I'd suggest you buy the wax removal from dreadlockshampoo.com (I also hear some people use Dawn, the dish soap, to remove wax if you'd rather try that out). It will take a while to get all the wax out, but you should be able to save your dreads. In your case, I wouldn't start over. Don't worry if some of the dreads get loose...they will dread up again beautifully and you will feel so much better about it. Good luck, and I wish you happy, healthy dreadlocks! :)

Hey Amanda

I used the section and backcomb method. I resisted on the wax for nearly a month then gave in.
Each time I used wax I knew deep down that it was a bad thing to do, but I'm impatient and want lovely locks! My dreads are 4 months old now and I trully love having them, but I will learn my lesson for my lack of patience.
I have wax in my hair and it doesn't come out. So do I shut my eyes and wish them to flurish or do I start over. Not an easy choice is it! Hard to let go after finally getting there.
How can I possibly part with them and start again? The thought alone does hurt.
However, I have enjoyed the journey and have learnt a hell of a lot.
I understand that I would now apreciate the natural method journey more than I would have. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
Foe a moment, Forget about the hard work you have put in, forget about the ample advice on hand, forget about how you do, would, could look if you do this that or the other. Sit, take a deep breath close your eyes, let go, and ask your self, what is the best thing to do for your hair

With love

Isn't it great Baba Fats to be in a place where you can both share that time together, yet also be in your own worlds. Two worlds colliding in a beautiful way!

Solace of the Solitary


General Talk

Hey Adam.

In response to your thoughts I ought to point out that I am in no way shape or form trying to push any kind of argument so the fact that "that argument makes no sence" to you is in your eyes only, because I'm not arguing or pushing anything, simply sharing my thoughts, feelings and beliefs openly.

There is nothing to argue Like I said (I believe) every one is right. I'm not sugesting you are wrong, I'm simply saying my truth from my view, from my understanding of my world.May I ask what your definition of reality is?

I have free will. Ialone am responsible for my deeds and Idon't feel the need to find an external source to blame if I doharm or good.

That argument makes no sense to me. Reality is about what is real. Many children believe in Santa, but it doesn't affect to reality of the situation. You might say that he is real to them, but it doesn't mean anything.

Edit: Lennie, have you heard the argument that free will is an illusion. It's pretty convincing.

Every one is right and no one is wrong.
We all live on earth but we also exist in our own world.
If you truly believe in something, then in YOUR world, it is completely right.
If you come across opposition in YOUR world, it is simply that someone has noticed you in THEIR world and you represent something THEY do not believe in or desire. So there is a clash, yet really you are both still right.
If I may use the totem pole idea.
Two people with clashing views on many levels sitting together studying a totum pole.
Would it surprise you to realise that they were not studying the very same Totem pole?
Later one will describe the wood, the coulours, the engineering behind its contruction, the other will describe the wood, colours, the symbolism on the pole and the feelings they had while there.
They will not describe the same Totem pole because they both experienced a different one in their own reality. It's paradoxical but think about it.
Reality is nothing more than perspective.
There is no such thing as absolute righ and wrong in a world of such individual worlds where free will reigns
