site feedback

sites like dreadheadhq and knottyboy do not allow any comments that are honest criticisms of the methods and products they sell. if you post a comment like "wax hurt my dreads" it will never get posted or seen. they edit the opinions of the users of the products so it looks like everyone loves them.

this site will never do that. we want honest feedback on the site and the info provided. we will never edit or delete comments posted here (as long as they are not abusive)

let us know what you think of

Soaring Eagle, I think you should set up a bio page for yourself :) Loove the site.
Comment by Heather B on October 10, 2010 at 11:49pm
I absolutely LOVE this site. I haven't been a member for very long but I have learned a TON of stuff! I have so much appreciation because of that. I am grateful to know and understand about the importance of "natural" "organic" or "neglect" style of dreadlocks.

I do have one complaint and one complaint only. When I joined this site I was looking forward to meeting other people with dreadlocks, learn more information, and read about your experiences with dreadlocks, maintenance, styles, and lifestyles, and enjoy pictures. I get frustrated with all the Jonny Clean, dreadheadhq, and knottyboy posts, complaints, and references. I understand the purpose and importance of education but it saddens me to see the constant berating and negativity towards any one person or group. Con man or not, I don't enjoy that type of "education". The people who help me the most are the people that tell me about their own personal experiences ie. "Wax didn't work for me, it damaged my hair" etc. without feeling the need to point any specific person out to fault. I have seen more advertisement for dreadheadhq and knottyboy on this site then anywhere else. "Negative advertisement" is STILL advertisement. If nothing else the negative advertising seems like it would cause curiosity for people who had never visited that site.

I plan on continuing activity with this site indefinitely and this will be the last time I ever reference dreadheadhq, jonny clean, or knottyboy, but I'll be happy to talk about my experiences with products, backcombing, crochet, wax, etc.

Again, thank you so much for this informative site with amazing pictures, and peace loving people with beautiful energy. I'm honored to be apart of this community.

The more I use this site, the more I see its about community and life style. I run into many of the same people in different discussions, and its interesting to learn from all of them. The information here has been so helpful and given me the confidence to go against the grain and let my hair dread. I was curious about dhhq, and checked out the site, I was able to find a photo gallery with product endorsments. But it was just that, all praise and good speak about the products. Kind of gave me the " Too good to be trues"

i feel very plesant when i come here because everyonie are so friendly :) there are no fighting and judgements.. plus, the most important, information about dreads are wide and useful. Sorry ppl, my english isn't so good :) bless to all!
Comment by Melanie on October 22, 2009 at 6:37am
I think this website is a GREAT idea...people need accurate information and support when it comes to getting and taking care of dreads.
The Dreadhead website was instrumental the creation of my dreadlocks (so I give them credit for that part of it)...I still use their soap and lock pepper (for doing my roots) but the rest of the products were pretty pointless....I'm so glad people have realised that there is no need for wax. I just found I did'nt like the look of my dreads when they had wax on them. My scalp has enough moisure on it's own : )
Comment by harlene on October 22, 2009 at 1:29am
this site is cool. all members of this site are good. even though that i am a new member. haha. i havent new pictures by my dreadlocks. but soon i will upload more pictures..hehe. keep safe everyone..
Comment by Karma Jane on October 21, 2009 at 6:04pm
these forums have created their own loving community! the number one "no douchebaggery" rule is essential and i love that it is enforced. the best part is that everyone treats everyone else as equals.. there is no "my dreads are longer" mentality. Old heads helping young heads to seek a higher natural path. I love this site.. it feels like home and i'm grateful to be able to help others and to be a part of something positive and bigger than myself. :) Thank you papa eagle! <33
