the bf is a chicken nugget whore and we went to McDonald's half an hour ago. the guy at the window had long shaggy blond hair, so with my new dread obsession...me: are you going to dreadlock your hair?him: yes, how'd you know?me: can't really tell, but I have baby dreadlocks. so are you going to use wax?him: no, I'm going to use coca cola.me: o.0???we were in the drive thru, so couldn't have a long conversation and ask, "Really?! someone has actually used coca cola?" I don't know if soda is worse than wax, but it has got to be up there in the list of things that's bad for your hair. it's bad for your body, teeth and health when drinking too much and I have these mental images of science experiments using soda to tenderize or dissolve meat. fortunately, on my way to ask for a refill of punch, he had just gotten off work and I asked him if he was really going to use coca cola and why. apparently, it was just what he was told to make dreads form and he is from Russia.me: isn't coca cola going to make your hair sticky?him: yes, isn't that the point?and I told him that clean hair actually dreads faster because it allows movement and the hairs to knot. I told him I got most of the info from here and gave the link. hopefully, he joins, reads the information and uses baking soda/acv or at the very least tells us about his experience and have photographs of other dreadies that started with this method. needless to say, I found the idea fascinating. Like a train wreck, can't look away.Anyone know of someone that used coca cola to start their dreads? If so, what was the result?on a side note he took down the url using his touch screen cell phone and his lit cigarette as a stylus; filter point down. I was intrigued and leaned in and now my hair smells like cigarette smoke. I just washed it yesterday.any tips on how to remove the smell without having to do another wash too early?

It's unbelieveable the things people will put in their hair to 'create' dreads when all they have to do is let nature take it's course.Clean hair and no comb makes beautiful, unique dreads so why destroy your hair by using something as stupid as coca cola? I mean, do these people not realise that it contains stuff that they use to preserve dead bodies? It's shocking.As for the smoke, I'm a smoker myself so I deal with the smell all the time. I find that the best method to get rid of it is spraying your hair with teatree oil or anything else along those lines that you like the smell of. It doesn't mask the smell, it actually removes it and means you don't have to keep washing your hair to remove it

eh yeah I'd really try to convince him out of doing that, hell if he wanted something sticky and messy as hell he could just use honey, least the ph on that isn't crazy like coke so it won't burn his hair,, as for cleaning yeah just do something with tea tree, that's always been my savior in conjunction with other essential oils

Bet coca cola would get rid of the cigarette smell :Pjust kidding but wow I never had the desire to put anything sticky like poop in my hair...Don't people realize that coka cola can take the paint off your car--I cant imagine what it would do to your hair if left in. Might as well use bubblegum lol :D
