The Fact Of The Matter.


Introduce Yourself

Okay I wanna star this by saying Dreadlocks are awesome and the end result no matter what method you choose is gonna be awesome.That being saidThe Fact Of The Matter is when you use the neglect method your hair looks like a mess (I don't mean that to sound rude) But it is crazy looking, not bad looking just crazy looking. So the thing I wanna talk about is. What every one thinks about that. You know like I've read here that some people think that rubber bands are bad to use. For one reason or another. My big question to people that are pro neglect. Is what are some tips you would give a guy like me that does want his dreads to look maybe a little bit more uniform. Tidy like, but agrees that wax isn't good for your dreadlocks.Again this isn't to knock ANYONE.

dealing with ignorance


General Talk

Yeah bottom line people are ignorant, in my situations they seem to dislike things they don't understand. With dreads so many people see it as a natural thing. Then the majority of the public sterotype it as a "Black Person" thing. So when what people do it there i s a lot of mixed emotions. At least thats what i think seeing how a lot of my family are kinda rednecks when i had my dreads it was funny comments one after another. But i just looked at it as.I only have to listen to you say this a few times a year. So no big deal. haha

I have questions about dreadwax - yes, I'm really asking this here lol


Dread Products

Haha well first off man, I told you in a message on facebook exactly what i think about this hole thing on your facebook page. I like your Dreads plain and simple. Your first set of locs really really made me think that White people could have amazing look'n locks. Stiff or not i don't really care what other people want to think i like'em. And i would like to See early pics of your first and second set of locs and how your hair looks when it's not Knoted. If you got'em. Cause in about 3 to 4 months i like to think i can start my 3rd. *and hopefully last set of dreadlocks. Thanks Everybody!Knotty Jonny Clean said:
First a quick question. If there were no wax or no crochet hooks or no lock doctors...or any of the other things you rail against....

Lets say they were all replaced by a completely harmless product that made dreads lock instantly - what would you tell people about this new wonder-product?



Ok, about the wax....

Please don't confuse the following:

Everyone who has ever had a bad experience using any dread wax or wax type product - in any way they cared to or were instructed to
AND
My customers who have used only my products and have followed my instructions


From the beginning I've taught people that there were times to use wax and times to avoid it, I've talked incessantly about how little should be used and how to remove it monthly. The competition on the other hand posts videos where dreads are smeared down with ounces of wax with virtually no info about removal or it's appropriate function. To gloss over this as if it doesn't matter and pretend that I'm somehow responsible for the issues which their ignorance and lack of instruction has caused is not just a distortion, it's dishonest. I'm happy to take responsibility for my products and my actions but I'm not going to accept blame for other peoples mistakes just because we both sell products for dreadlocks.


I'm not going to hop around from topic to topic with no objective and no basis for discussion to give of the appearance of a debate. There's no point in continuing a discussion based on opinions and feelings. The Dreadlocks Treaty Debate will continue to discuss facts. If you can limit yourself to that type of discussion your input is not only welcome, it's encouraged.


BTW, If my customers every start complaining to me about my wax (or about any other product or technique) I'll make changes happen - and fast. I'm ready and willing. The problem is that I get glowing testimonials not complaints. If any other type of order or shipping issue occurs my customers have no problems getting in touch with me so I'm going to continue to assume that they could contact me if they had a problem with my wax.
Excuse me if I don't put too much weight on the numbers you estimate. The only number I care about is the number of verifiable customers of mine who are using my products in accordance with the instructions and have contacted me because they have an issue - an issue I can't solve. That number is 0 and has always been 0 and until that changes I'm not going to take wild claims about my products ruining dreads very seriously.....even if you claim really really high numbers.

The 6 people I mentioned - I'm not talking about who is still here continuing the thread now - that's the total number of people, the whole time this thread has been running, who have said they used only my products (in any manner) and have had an issue removing the wax. I expect that everyone that is an active member in this forum has had a chance to see this thread now... it's been over a month now....


I've heard a couple times now that you'd like to see some type of "THIS PRODUCT RUINS EVERYTHING IT TOUCHES" warning on the wax page... Obviously I don't agree with the warnings you've proposed and to post them would be dishonest but I'll tell you what I would happily add to the wax page. A terms and conditions that you have to agree to. It would go something like this:

I agree to use this product in accordance with the instructions on this site to the best of my ability,
and I agree that if I should ever experience any problem of any type - or if I ever find myself, in any way unsatisfied by it's performance, I will
contact Jonny Clean and let him know while I'm experiencing the issue so that he can assist me.

Let me know what you think!


Ok, changing gears.

I also read your post about how you believe that hair has experiences trapped in it - that dreadlocks are more than the sum of their parts (dead hair cells) - that there are things in the hair in dreads that we can't measure - or observe .

In what ways do you think these beliefs about dreadlocks influence your ideas about how they should be cared for? How do they effect what you think is an "ideal" dread?

I don't know which pics in your pics section are of dreads that are:
2 months old
started with twist and rip or neglect
never backcombed
never waxed
never crocheted
nothing used on them but BS/ACV

Usually just the age is posted with the pic right? You guys know the details, not me....
If someone would take the time to find a few which meet this criteria I'd really appreciate it.

Lastly, what pics of my dreads do you want to see? I'd be happy to but aren't you just going to insist they look waxy and stiff no matter what they look like? =]

talk soon,
KJC

So i've had a shaved head for a while...


General Talk

Another up date! my hair is not to much longer than my last up date but i have been use'n dreadhead hq dreads soap and just not been worrying about my hair (thinking it was to short to even knot) Plus i wanted to get my money's worth out of the shampoo i bought you know. Well any way i found knots!! It is a great day for sure. although i must say i feel kinda of strange that i'm so happy about a few naps in my hair. Still worried about going Natural cause some people natural locs look fantastic others don't have the look i'm willing to go for. (Vanity issues i guess) But anywho first Knots! woohoo!

If I am correct, aren't you talking about the hats with a brim and a puffy body...like a newsboy cap...around alot in the 70's...? If so, I also make a crocheted version. Look at my pics on my page and you will see a grey brimmed tam...is that whatcha mean?
