Lifestyle changes.


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

I have had a HUGE lifestyle change but in a way it wasn't a change. I just realized who I am.After high school I enlisted in the marines. I was a machine gunner and wanted to show people how tough I was. I was very conservative and narrow minded.Now I have realized I'm a free spirited free thinking person. I care for all life and like helping people smile. The thought of war makes me very sad. Peace and love are very important to me. My mind is totally open now and I love life.Being a free spirit my time in the military was hell. I just did not fit in well and was constantly messed with. People in my unit tried hurting me a few times and that made me very confused. I thought the marines was a brotherhood but how could that be if I was constantly brushed aside. I got very depressed after I was discharged early.I eventually started feeling better. I am now a very optimistic person. All I want to do is help people to be peaceful loving individuals that can live in harmony with nature. Our planet needs more love.

So I might shave my head.


General Talk

Think about it for at least a week. Take note on how it would make you feel at different times during the day. Some days it might feel like the best thing to do but at other times you might dislike the idea. I shaved my head for four years until I realized I really wanted hair but last year I let it grow for a few months then decided I needed to shave it off. That was a big mistake! I was so unhappy about having to start all over again.This is a big decision and I encourage you to think about it long and hard. You can always just do a light trim to see how you feel about the length and go from there. Taking small steps will help you avoid big mistakes.

Hello

all I do after I rinse my hair is pat it down. That seems pretty safe to me.Sister Rags said:
Ha, I dunno. I play around with my hair a lot, but probably too much finger-combing might undo locking hair.

That plan is going well. My hair is feeling a lot better since I'm not over washing it. I'm even doing the same wash cycle with my beard and it is feeling a lot softer. I still brush it though.Is finger combing still considered combing?Sister Rags said:
I will second the wash once/week, plain water rinse in between.

dreading the 1st few weeks of dreading


Dreading Methods

I'm very new to this process but I have experience with another type of hair. My beard. The first time I grew my beard out I was constantly worrying about how it looked. It seemed like such a long time before I got to the point where I thought it looked decent. My current beard(which I will have for a very long time) just sorta appeared out of nowhere because I didn't think about it.I'm glad I found out about the natural way of growing dreads. It is so simple and I love that. I don't really care how long it takes because I know it will happen. I'll just kick back and enjoy the ride.

project brainwash- how some sites convince you made dreads are better then grown dreads


General Talk

I'm starting to feel very lucky. When I decided I really want dreads I posted a question on yahoo answers asking how it's done. One person said just get them, the second person said to use pomade and the third person told me some good information and gave a link to this site. Now I can do it the natural way and avoid all the gross products.

What is a Hippie?


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

I see that the topic of labels is strong in this thread so I want to give my opinion about labels.I am a hippie. I am a racist. I have been responsible for genocide. I am a murderer. I am a thief. I am a junkie. I am a prophet. I am a tree-hugger. I am a lumberjack. I am a molester. I am an activist. I am a leader. I am a follower. I am a lover of animals. I am a hunter. I am a father. I am a mother. I am a child. I am a teacher. I am a student. We are all one person and when we label others we label ourselves.Labeling out of anger is not good to do. Labels have a tendency to be exclusive but we cannot get away from them completely. We need to use labels in a loving way. Every man is my brother. Every woman is my sister. Those are the only labels I need.

Thank you! This will be a fun journey.GreyGargoyle said:
I tried washing every other day but found that my hair liked to be washed only once a week. I'd said just wash it once a week. Do a water rinse every other day or something like that. I doubt that the shampoo is residue free. I just use baking soda. Welcome and good luck.

Michael Baker said:
I stopped combing and got what I think is a residue free shampoo. I have had a lot of free time today so I have been twisting different sections of hair. I'm excited to see what this process is like and how long it will take for my hair to start forming into dreads. Would it be best to wash my hair every other day but rinse it every day?
