Not dread related, but question about Didjeridoos...


General Questions

There's more to it than just relaxing your lips. That'll just get you a dull drone. Good for getting the idea, but bad for learning to circular breathe. It's when you tighten your jaw a bit and start to force air out, that you start to see how you can get the cool effects and tone. It's easier to circular breathe when you are forcing air out of your mouth too, not just letting it fall out

Better late than never


Introduce Yourself

Welcome. Phoenix, already said it, but I'll reiterate. Growing locks is a wonderful test in patience. Don't give up on them. We've all been where you are, so we all know the different stages you'll go through. The unraveling, the stagnant phase, the itchy phase, everything. Don't be afraid to post questions or concerns you've got.

And the patience you get from your locks will transfer over to your life in the terms of how you deal with problems with your kids, job, etc.

Good luck. Keep us posted

natural dread process: a few questions


Dread Maintenance

yeah, mine take a while to dry. They're very fat. even with twisting and squeezing the water out, blow drying a few time, they can take 5-6 hours to dry completely. It really depends on your locks.

But like Eagle said, when they are young, you don't need to blow dry at all

natural dread process: a few questions


Dread Maintenance

It's not that towel drying is bad. It's when you rub your head trying to dry that's bad. You can use the towel and twist it around your hair, or pat it dry, but you should not rub your head trying to dry it that way.

It's best to let it air dry or dry in the sun, but patting your head and using a towel to squeeze extra water out, won't hurt them.

Friend in need of advice!


Introduce Yourself

I'd mix the oils with the Jojoba. Pure essential oils, in most cases, are caustic the the skin. Jojoba is an applicator oil. It lets the oils spread out more by cutting down the concentration.

Hi.


Introduce Yourself

lol. Yeah, that's the only mirror in my house. It's had to not look at it, cause I have some problems with my wisdom teeth. I need to look into the mirror to make sure I get them. I have more than enough room, so it's not like that. I even have enough room for another set of them. But because they are so far back, I get cavities if I don't pay special attention. That and when I try to put a bead on a baby one are the only times I intentionally look in a mirror

would you cut your dreads for a million dollars? (very serious and real question)


General Talk

I did this math with my girlfriends dad once:

$1000 in $1 bills is 1 foot high. $1 million is as tall as the Empire State building. If you spent $1000 a day, 1 million would be gone in under 3 years. But who spends 1000 a day, really. Those who have even just 1 billion, it would take 2,740 YEARS to speand it all if they spent $1000 a day.

The amount that you'd end up with probably lays somewhere in the middle of this. If you could even spend that kind of cash, you'd be set for life. But if you are the minimalist you are, you could probably have $1 million last your whole life.

If Jesus had $1 billion and spent 1000 day, he'd still be spending it today, and have to live for another 700 years to run out

Hi.


Introduce Yourself

When I first started mine, I took down or covered all of my mirrors to help me stop caring about what they looked like. I hope you did get it all out. As you could see, it really is nasty stuff

Questioning Equal opportunity employment.


General Talk

That makes sense. And yes, the whole Reservation system is corrupt. The BIA as a whole is a joke.

Golden eagle, I feel like it's our civic duty to know about the law. There's so much out there for us since the freedom of information act was passed. Plus all of the .gov sites. Most of my recent research has been into the NRC, but that cause I have some strong feelings about it. I had to write a research paper for an environmental bio class a few semesters ago. I still keep tabs on what's going on.

Not only are the sites there for you, but you can always make some phone calls and speak to people directly for more info

what to do about "cowlicks" ?


Dread Maintenance

I love fatties. I've got a bunch of them, but If they are really that fat already, you might want to ask Eagle if it's worth looking into using a razor blade to split them apart. Once they are thinner they might fill in that space too. I didn't realize they were already big
