I'm in ontario, I just sent my husband to the grocery store to see if he could find some fresh stuff LoLI cant really have any plant life in my home because I have cats and they eat any plant I've tried to bring in. And It's starting to get cold at night here, so if I planted it outside I dont think it would live longDidjeridurian said:
where are you exactly? Thyme is super hearty, should be available anywhere. Real easy to grow

awesome, I will try out the thyme tea spray. Where I am tho its hard to find actual thyme, would the dried out version work?
Thanks!

I definitely will have to try that out! I've been living plantless for so long! I love the little buggers, but they destroy plant life.soaringeagle said:

I completely disagree. I loved the way my locks looked at the beginning and i love them even more now also i take offensive to my locks being called pseudo locks. I think that is a load of horses crap. Just because mine where back combed doesn't mean their fake.

can only point out from experience, that backcombed dreads are weak, and to made them stronger i thought i had to use my crochet needle lol, yes truly got very damaged dreads, love them stilas my hair was always weak, and yes with age they are only getting weaker, if you love your dreads you have to set them free, if you want to keep them on a long term, large smile forever

No no no... I mean pseudo locks as in the way they look that very day when yo backcombobviously they are not really locks yet cause its only been like a minuteI dont think that backcombed dreads are pseudo locks once they actually truly knot up as yours seem to have done nicelyHope I cleared up any miscommunicationKellye said:

i definitly know what you mean. My dreads (with the exception of about 3) all came unraveled and went into tiny semi dreads which are now congoing back together. Its really cool to watch and with the help of some sea salt and h20 is happening really quickly
