Thank you for the response. You appear to have a similar hair type as Mr Lanier.
I have read through these replies and still can't understand who you think is attacking SE; I just wanted to be clear though that I was referring to the DHHQ franchise, because of its apparent "We understand and solve every problem with our products" philosophy. No disrespect to anyone
I was just reading through some of these comments and I wanted to say....
What's wrong with the ones of you that bash Soaring Eagle? I've only been on this site for a short time.. couple of months maybe. I've seen SE offer advice all day long free of charge! Yes, I have seen him angry or frustrated when someone comes on with their hair all waxed up, because the followed dreadhead or knottyboymarketing (which is all it is). It's just theirgimmick to make money. I've also seen SE send someone some wax remover FREE, because their hair was in such bad shape. There also hasn't been a single time that I've messaged him when he didn't messageme back, and pretty damn quick too! And I'm broke right now and he knows this, and hasn't asked for a thing in return.
Now to be fair, SE doesn't mince words. He's gonna tell you exactly how it is. Personally, I like that in a person. He's passionate about this site and about helping people with their dreads. You have to realize that people pop on this site and go straight to the chat and ask the same questions over and over without even bothering to READ the wealth of topics here at their disposal, again, for FREE! I can assure you that you won't get that at those other sites. SE could push all sorts of products and prob'ly make a lot of money that way, but he doesn't. He says if you can afford it, try the shampoo from this site, if you can't afford it, he offers FREE advice on how to use BS and ACV to have great looking dreads. What more can you ask of a person, really?
Sorry for the little mini-rant, but it's so frustrating to see someone doing nothing but trying to help, and getting attacked (pretty much daily) for just helping.
SE, I think you're great and I appreciate all the advice and friendship you offer every single day!
Some people need something to believe in, many do; some like the idea of investing in a franchise that tells them every need is taken care of. Even if the only value of this is that they are being TOLD every need will be taken care of, regardless of its effectiveness.
Yeah I put them in a cloth bag and chuck them in the bath, at first I didn't think they were getting me clean, but later realised that they were simply leaving a lot of natural oils behind, which has had a beneficial effect on my skin. My hair is only four inches long, but I do get the feeling it may be too oily for dreads. They are a great chemical free laundry soap though, same principal of just chucking them in a bag when you put a load on. I may look into the soap nut powder extract for my hair or something.
