this discussion will remain closed untill 15 minutes before debate time.
at that time the debate will be held here openly for all the world to see and participate.
johny clean 1st agreed to the debate then showed signs of trying to back out.
we dont know if he will show or not but the truth will be discussed with or without him. we want him to know we are not going to attack him we only wish to discuss the truth using scientific and logical means as well as real life experiences.
once the debate ls opened it will remain open forever and further discussions is welcome.
the current questions are listed below, but all who attendd may ask their own (nicely).
question 1: given the nature of wax, being a viscous substance with a melting point above 140 f and the properties of being hydrophobic how does wax not build up within dreads?
question 2: why is it recommended to only use non residue shampoo because residues are hard to remove, but also recommended to use a waterproof residue thats almost impossible to remove?
question 3: since dreads happen without effort how do you justify recommending a process with complicated instructions that takes hours and hours a week?
question 4: why do you demonize natural dreads when natural dreads are generally considered the most respected?
question 5: why do you recommend using tools and techniques like felting and crocheting that cause massive damage to dreads?
question 6: why do you deny harming anyone with your products despite the fact that thousands complain that they had to cut off dreads after using your products?
question 7: why do you continually recommend using less and less wax but still recommend using any?
question 8: in your lock docta vid you market a felting needle as a way to "fix" dreads that are simply doing what dreads do as they mature, but on the lock docta website it clearly says using the tool can cause the dread to break tight iff, why do you recommend fixing a dread thats not broken with a tool that can cause it to be broken?
question 9: why have your own dreads never lasted past 3-4 years?
question 10 why is it almost no waxy dreads last past 3-4 years?
question 11: why do you think most previous wax users now warn everyone not to use wax?
question 12:how much wax he originally used in all his own sets, and how or if it might have differed from his updated instruction
question 13: the many customers who meet the criteria of "over waxing" how long would it take to remove wax that has accumulated
question 14: what is the correlation of stiffened locks and the use of wax, why does it seem to produce locks that have a stick like stiffened tightness to them, different from real maturity found in other locks. or is this the result of a fore mentioned over waxing.
question 15: how is overwaxing defined?
question 16: if wax is not needed and potentially harmful wouldn't any waxing be overwaxing?
question 17: you have always blamed those who were hatmed by wax for over waxing but over the years have constantly recomended the use of less and less wax, at the same time you deny that anyones ever complained, so why have you lowered the recomended amounts? why do you say nobody has ever complained but at the same time say everyone whos complained over used wax?
question 18: why do you recomend wax even for natural/neglect dreads?
question 19: in the dread community natural dreads are the most respected and admired, so why do you try to make them seem the least desirable?
question 20: why do you think that all dreadlocks should look the same and shouldnt be induvidual?
question 21: this is a multipart question. its been pointed out that in all of your vids you contradict yourseld constantly, several contradictions we request clarification on are: you say dread wax does not build up in dreads or trap dirt then say wax will trap dirt if stuck on a wall but doesnt trap dirt in wax in the core of dreasds. so if wax doesnt build up why is it in the core and if wax can get in why cant dirt? also, you claim wax doesnt make dreads feel sticky, but then go on to say you dont even like touching your dreads after waxing so you recomend dread butta to cver up the waxy feel. why does dread butta exist idf wax doesnt make dreads stink and feel sticky?
question 21: what are the ingrediants in wax butta, and why should anyone buy it just to cover up wax they never should have used to begin with?
anyone have any more questions you'd like to ask johny?
