Decorating your dreads!


Introduce Yourself

I don't have any pictures of them close up, but I'm in love with beads. Only it's hard to find ones that are big enough to fit over my locks now.

I've got this neat wooden one with 2 captive rings that twist freely around it. I've got a coconut seed, a cedar tree stem hollowed out, and a glass bead with a sequoia on it. That last one never come off because my last name means tree, and I have a deep connection with them. I climb trees whenever I go hiking while my girlfriend is distracted taking pictures.

I've got a few feathers that I use to tie to my locks, but I found out recently that they areillegalto own, so I am careful, now, when I put them in

wash and rinse in metric please


Dread Maintenance

If you don't want to look at them till they're older or longer, either take down your mirrors, or get some cloth and cover them up for a few weeks or months if you can manage it that long. Eagle made a good point to just look at your locks in their shadow. You won't see every imperfection and dwell on it

rastafarian education?


History and Religious Significance

Angel, I could go into it in a little more detail, but the grammarical terms are escaping me right now. "I am" became "I is" by simple evolution of language. "I is" is a more evolved phrase. It's not only found in Jamaica or Rasta speak. Look at black culture. It's not uncommon to hear "I be" instead of "I am" or "He/she be" instead of "he/she is" or even "they be" instead of "they are".

Even the word "aint" comes form an old word "amnot". But we have lost the ability topronouncem and n together in one word like that, so it became "aint".

It's the evolution of language. Look into Steven Pinker. I'm not sure if he goes into this exact evolutionary concept, but he has tons and tons of books on evolution, and he seems to focus on language and ideas.

History and Religious Significance

Jews lay on the guilt just as much as Catholics do. Just in a different way.

Jews are all about dwelling on the past. Every holiday, every prayer, every everything, they bring up their enslavement in Egypt and the exodus. It doesn't even matter to them that historians have proven beyond a matter of a doubt that Jews didn't build thepyramids.

The issue I have with Jews (I was raised in a pretty conservative jewish home), is that they complain about how people throughout history have wanted to hurt them. What do they expect. The go around everywhere telling people that they are the only true religion, that they are the conscience of the world, that everyone should listen to them, that they are gods chosen people, etc... And then they hide themselves in littlecommunitiesand don't want to interact with the rest of the world. Even people who convert are not really considered really jewish.

Why should anyone like them?

Swimming Pools


General Questions

If you rinse really well afterwards, the majority of it will be out. The damage that it causes will be there no matter what, but don't take this to mean that you should never go into a swimming pool again. We can't love our lives babying ourselves or our locks.

The chlorine will lighten your hair over time and will make it dryer, but if you're not planning on swimming for hours a day every day, don't worry so much about it

Angel,

Almost all major religions will admit that jews are gods chosen people. The funny thing about jews is that they will tell you that god went to every group of people and asked them to blindly follow his laws. They asked what they were first, and god said "never mind". Hebrews were the last group he went to and they said yes. See the irony. Jews are all holier than thou, but really they were Gods last choice

advice on happiness


Dread Products

Well... did you go into school with a major in mind right away? That's not always a bad thing, but you should have taken a few electorates so you could get an idea of what else is out there. In the first 2 years of college, you don't do jack that isapplicable. I'd recommend you do what you can to make friends with your professors. Talk to them during office hours and ask them what kind of classes you should take that fit you more personally. You obviously have to take core classes, but you might be interested in taking an art class so you could focus on being creative with design and style. If you want to be an architect, you don't want to be boring. Art might boost your imagination.

I sort of agree with Eagle, but in reality, the first 2 years of school can be kind of boring. It's not until you get into your higher classes that it gets better. All of those kids that you can't stand in introductory classes will drop out, or not make it into the higher level classes. Once you're there, you'll have much more in common with your class mates.

I hate to be like your parents, but if you do stick with it, it will get better. I would really urge you to talk to your professors on more of a friendly level than a student-teacher level. They are there to help you and most of them like getting to know you better. Once they do, they'll be able to point you in a more personalized direction.

I'm a Bio major, but I plan on studying mycology later on. So while other bio majors will be taking micro biology and organic chemistry, I'll be focusing on botany and ecology. I wouldn't have though of that on my own. A professor I have had for 3 different classes, now, sent me in that direction.

That too, if you can get the same professor semester after semester, you A: get to know their teaching style and what their tests look like, and B: get to know them better and they get to know you better

Good luck, keep your eyes out for classes that aren't just the normal routine classes other engineering majors are taking

washing for the first time


Dread Maintenance

Deff BS. Never use DHHQ products. First, they are just bad for your locks. Second, it tends to leave a silky residue that will slow down locking significantly.

Use about 3 cups to a quart of water, depending on how long your hair is with 2tbls in the 3 cups or 5-6 tbls in a quart. Let it sit for about 10 minutes. Rinse it out really well then use about half a cap of Apple Cider vinegar in 3 cups of water. Rinse that out right away. Don't let it sit.

Don't bother with a stocking or anything like it. You need to let the water run through your hair. If it doesn't they won't lock up. Washing regularly is what makes your locks develop,

veggie vegan omni ital? whats your diet and hows it relate to your dreadiness (if at all)


Dreads and Diets

do you like asian food?

get some bok choy, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, safflower oil, red pepper flakes, salt/pepper (opttional, but really helps the taste), and rice vinegar.

dice up the ginger and garlic really small. heat a skillet with the oils in them. use about a 1-1 ratio of the 2 oils. (never stirfry with just sesame or olive oil).

Cut the leaves off of the bok choy and cut the body of it up into slices not unlike slices of celery at a salad bar.

slice the leaves into strips by rolling them into a tube and cutting on an angle.

When the oil is heated up, toss in the pepper flakes, garlic and ginger and stir for a few minutes, make sure to not let it burn.

then add the bok choy bodies, and stir until they are tender.

add the vinegar and stir for no more than 30 seconds.

pour the mixtur over the leaves and let them wilt.

If you want to, you could add some white or black sesame seeds

eat as you like it

why are they straight???


Introduce Yourself

The problem is that this is only your 6th day. No one usually see much progress until a few weeks in. And they won't start maturing until months to a year.

You can't rush locks. It's a continual process of 2 steps forward and one step back. They will progress a little and then unravel a little. Then progress a little more and then unravel. This unraveling is what makes your hair kinky and ready to keep knotting. If you're going the natural method, it can take a little longer, but is more healthy. Time is the cost of healthy locks.

I'm no expert, but it sounds like your BS wash is a little heavy on the BS. In 3 cups of water I'd probably only put 2 Tbls of BS
