Okay,  I don't have dreadlocks yet- my hair IS a bit longer than in my pic, though. It's time to definitely start making sure I'm doing the right stuff so my hair will lock up as it grows out.…Continue

"If baking soda irritates your armpits, try mixing it 50-50 with cornstarch. The smaller granules are supposed to keep it from irritating. If that doesn't work, mix it with water and that should do it. Put it in a spray bottle and use it like…"

Wool tam question

I was looking into buying a wool tam to wear when I don't want my hair all over the place. I know wool encourages knotting- but now that I've looked at tams, it turns out there are at least three kinds of wool! Does the type of wool matter? I purchased one labeled "sheep's wool" (doesn't nearly all wool come from sheep? Perhaps the seller is just dumb) and one labeled "merino wool" and I saw some that were another type, as well. Does it matter? The merino wool one is much more comfortable, but…See More
