I lost my> husband to bladder cancer which is directly related to exposure to> chemicals when contracted at a young age. So I don't mess around, I> have 2 daughters I needed to protect and that is how all this> business started. I could not find even in a health food store> products without chemicals. My stepson has dreads past his knees and> was in need of shampoo, he also lost a few dreads due to super dry> dreads.....that's when this part of the business was born. So rest> assured my products are safe and are the best out there. If you> don't want to make it yourself come to us. Thanks for the> questions....always love when people take the time to learn.> Many blessings to you Sarai,> Vicki>Vicki,>> Wow, what an incredible inspiring story. I am a new mother myself and can> only imagine the impact such a loss would have on me and my son,> spiritually and financially. Your children are blessed to have such a> resourceful mother! Thank you for sharing that with me.>> I do plan to purchase from you in the future when money isn't so tight. I> would love to compare my homemade goo to your lock up gel, I'm very> interested in the difference of texture and hold.>> Would you mind if I shared a copy of our emails on the dreadlockssite> forum? I started a post there inquiring about homemade lock up gel. That's> how this inquiry to you came about because I was receiving negative feed> back from it, mostly about being fearful to "experiment" with their> dreads. I am a truth seeker and never can I let the fear of not knowing> stop me from looking further into something for myself. After doing a> little research and then comparing your ingredient list I was convinced> that homemade flax gel is nothing to fear. But I just had to ask you to> make sure, like I said in my last email I trust your business.>> I am in no way trying to steal your business or discourage people from> purchasing from you. I see the value and specialness of your product, due> to its added ingredients, oils and proteins. As I said in a post to the> forum, "I cant afford online purchases right now, so it is refreshing to> know I can make a basic non residue goo at home, but would love to try> lock up and dread shampoo when I have the money.">> I can understand if you aren't comfortable with this, seeing as how you> are a business. I just feel that this is helpful knowledge to the dread> community. Let me know what you think.>> Love and light,> Sarai---- Reply message -----From: firstname.lastname@example.orgTo: "sarai"Subject: Message from Dreadlocks ShampooDate: Wed, Oct 24, 2012 5:10 pmHi Sarai,Please feel free to share at the forum.
