The Demon Drink


General Questions

We all make excuses for our behaviors, but if its excessive, id say its problem. U may think ur not an alcoholic, but ur addicted to alcohol. Dont wanna tell u what to do, but im assuming since u made it public, u wanted unbiased views from strangers. Saying ur not an alcoholic sounds like denial, and the mere fact that you make provisions to have it once a week, or one drink every 4 hours, means u need it in ur life enough that you make these provisions. If u werent addicted or an alcoholic you wounldnt keep count of when u drank last. Ill drink here n there, but never to get drunk or be social. I drink a glass of sangria at a restaurant cuz i like the taste, and because i am a husband and father n im usually driving thats all ill have with my meal. I can sympathize with you because i also have an addictive personality, i either hate something or i love it, theres really no in between with me. This is why ive never smoked weed, cuz i know i could become addicted. I understand ur feeling of not wanting to join AA, but if u cant do it on ur own, then maybe being around others that are going through the same and have successfully quit wouls help. Maybe you couls start ur own ssupport group? Maybe find some folks n meet weekly, more as a group of support friends as opposed to being under the AA umbrella. Dont mean to preach to you bro, just my humble opinion. Bless.

New Locks


Introduce Yourself

Lot to answer here, u dont actually have locks yet, takes years, not weeks for them to reach maturity. Idk what method u used, but if u want ur hair to recover, id suggest leaving them be. Dreads never quite lock at the roots, with the length n weight of the lock, the root generaly stays unlocked and twice as thick as the dread. As far as washing, you shouldbe doing it 2-3 times a week with a non residue shampoo(idk if that lush bar is) i use n recommend any bar or liquid shampoo from dreadlockshampoo.com. Dont wait any longer to wash, dirty hair builds up oil n debris n will take forever to lock, n when it does, itll stink. If wax was used on u u need to get it off asap, that shit traps dirt n moisture which creates dread rot, not a good thing. Its still early, n u can still save ur hair, ur not the only one that fell for the jnstant dread look, i did as well n removed the wax n went neglect ever since. At the end of tge day youll do what u want, but ask urself if tge health of ur hair is worth the "look" of dreads, cuz as i said, 3weeks is a drop of water in the bucket, dreads wont form n mature for 1-2 years. Good luck, bless.

baby dreads remove wax


Dread Maintenance

Yea the 50 was a waste homie sorry to tell u. With t n tge dreads will fall apart then theyll tighten up again in te but its a process. Wax just makes it look likr u got dreads but u dont. Dreads need freedom to move, the friction cause the locks to form, wax prevents that. I was in the samw boat, had wax in for 5 months n i took me 4-5 applications of wax be gone from dreadlockshampoo.com. if u got the patience to let them do their thing then stick wit it, if not, thay wax is gonna keep moisture in n evemtually cause rot, n belieeeeve me u dont want that. Best of luck, bless.

Looking For Pro Stylist In Florida


General Questions

Save ur money dude, go natural. I wasted 4 bills to get mine started n maintained, and another one to remove all tge damage, n i didnt even crocheted, just twisted. If u ever take them out post crochet, ull lose a ton of hair, if u do so after natural/neglect youll keep most of it. You gotta ask urself whether instant beauty is worth hundreds plus tge health of ur hair. Ur a pretty woman, a cpl months of messiness wont change that. At the end of the day, i gonna do what u want, but the wisdom ur getting here is from folks that went natural, and some that made mistakes that took moonths/years to repair, that are just trying to save others from making them. Good luck on ur choice. Bless

GAH! Dandruff ACROSS and UNDER the bands..


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I use that shampoo n have no druff issues. Could it be that the bands are keeping some sort of residue from a product in ur scalp? And yea Adam is 100% correct, them bands gotta go, may not be an issue now, but when ur dreads lock up n weigh down on that weak spot ur dreads will break. The roots should be wider than tge dread to support its weight, similar to the foundation of a home. U can try washing with cool water n rinsingwith cold water(this sucks btw lol) this temporarily reduces the release of oils from ur scalp by closing the pores on ur head. N deff try the rosemary teatree bar from that site, shit is money. Hope this helps. 1.

Everybody just chill man, yall shouldnt be offended one way or another, people are gonna say what they wanna say, n pigeonhole u into a group, religion, or place in society. As long as those close to you respect you n dont do ir to you, thats all that matters. When people ask me if im a rasta i say yea sure i am, just leave me alone lol. Bless, 1.
