The division of poverty & the wealthy


General Talk

Why did the people of our Countries start the Occupy Movement? Read these alarming statiscs for Canada, I would think that the good 'ol USA and some other countries are about the same.

Today the richest 10% now account for 40% of all market income and own over 1/2 of the entire wealth of the country. Over the past 30 years, the wealthiest of the wealthy peoples income increased by 300%, that's right..over 300% in 30 years.

Now the middle class has had an income increase of just 5.5% in 30 years. Sounds unjust doesn't it! Well, it gets worse.

The poorest of working families earned a mere $10,000 after taxes in 1990. Today, in 2013 they earn $9,300 after taxes. Say what?????

So let's see...300%+ wealthiest...5.5%+middle income....negative% (yes -0%) poor: All in a 30 year span

Well water, hot water tanks


Dread Maintenance

That's funny, we are long lost twins from different decades. You live in Woodstock GA & live an hour away from Woodstock ON. You know what I finally did not help my hair shorten on the left side? I've been sleeping on the couch for a couple of weeks on my left. It is a skinny couch, so I can't roll over on my right side. It actually works, my hair is getting shorter on the left. In bed I always roll to my right to snuggle. My husband doesn't like me not in bed, but hey...dreads first?...husband first?.....so confused.

My smell only came with the new tank, no work was done on the well. For one year I was smelling the stink & thought it was the well and that we would maybe need to do a new one. Then I started searching the net and found that article about the anode rods in the tank. Lo and behold, that was the problem. I will post in the next couple of days the outcome of the new aluminum rod & make sure to let you know. If your hot water tank is a rental, they will change the rod for free, at least they did here. Peace Twinnie

Lady I think we are long lost twins. We are on a well and have that same smell. Ours comes and goes. Work was done to the well just prior to our moving in. Bet its the same thing. I also have right sided shrinkage. I looked at your pics the other day and we have the same shaped hair.

dred extentions? yes or no?


General Questions

Heart-wrenching story. Those dread thieves in South Africa did not steal anything that can be replaced, they stole this mans being, they stole a huge part of who he is, they stole his identity and they dented his soul, and the list goes on. I can't imagine the feeling of being mugged for lovingly grown 10 year old locks. At least those assholes did not steal his life & kill him.

I always though dread extensions were stupid, and I still do. After reading this article though, I realized they also, are evil! http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/articles/429544/20130130/hair-today-gone-t...

Life Issues Facing Dreads

No question is a ridiculous question when it comes to our locks. After all, we all want to take good care of them to keep them healthy.

dred extentions? yes or no?


General Questions

Here is a previous posting I found for you, hope it helps:

yes the products work wonderfully but heres the thing about extentions u kinda need estabk]lished dreads to anchor them onto and they also will feel like extentions not connected to you like yor real dreads

another option is to do a hair wrap on a dread close to the crown, then extend the wrap a ways past the en of the dread so its long enough to wrap around the dreads

once your dreads are more mature u can comb out a couple inches of the ends fraying them out then push the 2 ends togrther till the dresed parts meat and the loose hairs mesh togetger extending on either sde over the dreaded parts then wrap about 4 inches an inch above and below the loose hairs till they fuse

Very hard and dry locks.. :(


Help! Save My Dreads

Hey back atch ya. There is a group you should join on this site, called Dyed Dreadheads. These are members who do dye their hair, you would find wonderful tips on there for you.

Do you think that you have residue build up in your locks? That may account for the hardness. An anti-residue shampoo like Neutrogena will help get rid of residue if you have it. This is strong stuff and should only be used 2-3 times a year. Does it work, it sure does, you see the built up residue coming out when you rinse the shampoo out.

After I used the Neutrogena & rinsed, rinsed, rinsed, I laid back in the tub and let my hair float around for 1/2 an hour to ensure it was all out.

I do not dye dreads, but I would think that you would really have to work hard in getting it out of the dread after dying them. Perhaps you have some stuck in there?

100% Aloe Vera gel is a healthy choice for dreads. If you can, purchase a plant and use it the freshest way you can. It is a great conditioner for mature dreads and will soften your locks.

Dreadlocks and Dandruff!


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

BeckBeck has attached some extensions to her 4" hair to cover up some of the bald patches she has. She had dreads for 4 years, then cut them off 6 months ago and has now reattached some of her own dreads.

What exactly do you mean by reattached your dreads that almost sounds like a hair extension situation

Hi Kimmy. The baking soda wash should stay on for 20 minutes. What measurements are you using for the BS & ACV?
