Those look outstanding for 3 weeks
I was going fully neglect a few months ago, but unforseen circumstances made me believe that I had to have well groomed hair. My bad. I was totally wrong and I vowed never to touch my hair again after a little TnR.
I did a little TnR about a week ago, but I left it real loose --it wasn't tight at all. I hit the 1 week mark today and thought I'd share the progress. There is lots of loose hair and it's real fuzzy, but I like it!
I'll be posting weekly updates.
Probably the most overreacting, humorous and self-facepalming forum post I've ever seen.
Aside from the debate of wax, to criticize somebody for incorrect spelling, regardless of whether intentional or not, is pityful. I genuinely feel sorry that, to infuse a false and temporary sense of confidence within yourself, you must attack a trait of another that does not comply with your precious professionalism.
oBviously? How is this obvious? YOU do understand this is the internet, right? How was it obvious - or even implied - that this person was diagnosed by a dermatologist? Anyone can say whatever they want on the internet, and disguise it as whatever they want. INTERNET. Where every person of the utmost intelligence - and their most downright opposite - have a say...
I work for a very respectable consumer electronics company. We make products that work. Yet some people buy our products and sometimes a) are too stupid to get it to work or b) actually DO have a streak of bad luck and have functional issues. Does this mean we make bad products? Should all our user base listen to the minority that have issues?
If I crash my Toyota cause I was too effin stupid to drive slowly when it was snowing outside, is it really Toyota's fault? There's millions of similar examples out there in the world. We have brains. We try to use them. If we get too stupid and don't use them properly (in your case - using enough wax to make dreads sticky) then it's our own damn fault!
You're trying to make a case out of nothing here. And I'm sorry. I don't encourage the use of wax - at all. I just thing you're taking things to a level much too extreme, and you're jumping at stuff that happened over 2 years ago to try an prove your point. Using 2+ year old stuff really looks desperate. Is there anything newer?
Please SE, refocus your site on INFORMATION, and not pursuing your personal slandering. Please also upgrade your browser to Google Chrome, which will happily highlight any spelling mistakes or typos and at least give you a little of your credibility back.
I'm pretty sure you are going to ban me now, as many people have already warned me. That may just prove me right.

Actually, hang drums are made by a pair(?) of people in Switzerland. And, althought there is around a six month backlog of people that have ordered them, or are ordering them, they are still being made.

I want a hang drum too, but unfortunalty, they are not made anymore. it's a hard find. Only one guy in I thin it was Sweden made them, and he stopped a few years ago. Good luck finding one. And if you do, let me know I really want one too
I've been playing didge for a few months now, and managed to get circular breathing down within a few days; I can play some pretty cool improvisation rhythms now and can keep playing non-stop without gaps.
www.didgeridoobreath.com has some pretty amazing didgeridoos, some of the best in the world in fact. Alongside this, most of their didgeridoos are actually purchased from the Aboriginies and then sold. You'll definitely want a termite hollowed eucalyptus didge for quality, and they start at just over $200 and go up to around $2000.
My name is Joseph Woodward, I'm male and from Derby, UK. I found this site a couple of weeks ago and have been avidly reading pages and pages in their entirety. I am massively inspired by most here it would seem, and due to the mindfulness, compassionate and loving-kindness that I saw here, alongside your heightened discernment, I succumbed to making an account; enabling me to engage in wordly conversation with all.
Upon turning vegeterian six months, and then vegan four months ago, I have rapidly increased my awareness of the environment, interdependance and peace. I have recently returned from a three month travel in Canada where I self studied International Development, Environmental Management and Inner Peace at a high rate; around 10 hours a day 'actual' study, and daily self-actualization. I do not even believe that I have scraped the surface of understanding the above; however, I can only see a bright future in the journey ahead by making the first steps.
I play didgeridoo and read frequently --perhaps too frequently!
I decided that I was going to commit to a natural (after the initial tnr and slight backcombing) dreadlock journey two days ago. I did tnr and backcomb slightly, and very slightly, maybe an inch or so near the root (was this a bad thing, in the sense that this will affect it's locking from here on out?). My hair is only 6-7 inches long, but because of the aforementioned, you can see dreadlocks already. I do, however, have a crazy amount of loose hair and frizziness; I truly like the beauty of this though --it seems natural.
I have attached a picture that was the day after the slight tnr and backcombing for those interested, and I shall bid you guys farewell for the time being.
In peace, love, and compassion
Joseph Woodward. x
