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


Dread Products

Obviously, most of us are no longer paying attention to this thread. Please do not insist that there are only 6 people with dread wax issues. It just means that there were only six bothering to pay attention to this never-ending thread. It keeps going on in circles. It is not productive. I really think you have permission to close this thread...not delete, by the way and message those in anti-wax/dread recovery groups. That's about 200 people. Or hell, form your own group and have people join that would like to help rather than distract the main forum/solicit individual people. (Although, messaging individual people, based on our forum dynamic, would be okay. They can choose to ignore or assist...most would reply back)Here are links since you seem to be lazy in doing your own research/contacting people ;Phttp://www.dreadlockssite.com/group/formerdreadheadhqknottyboycusto...http://www.dreadlockssite.com/group/dreadwaxrecoverya search for 2 months in member photos:http://www.dreadlockssite.com/photo/photo/search?q=2+monthsthat's a 103I would say about 300 potential people to contact and ask their opinion on whatever it is that you want for your "experiment"Honestly, it is your product that we're trying to "save dreads" from, so buckle down and do whatever contacting you need rather than clogging our forum...please.Thank you and best of luck.Knotty Jonny Clean said:
If what you really want to do is "save the dreads" then help me focus on what you have experience with - the dreads that failed. I heard from 6 people here that used my product and got it stuck in their dreads. Info from theses people is extremely valuable to me because they represent the only people I've been able to find that have used the product as instructed and had a removal issue. In order for their experience to save dreads though we need to get some more specific info like: 1)What shampoos/soaps did you use? 2)What was your section size or range? (be as specific as possible) 3)How tight were the dreads when you stopped using wax?4)How long had you had the dreads when you stopped using wax?5)What steps did you take to remove the wax? (be as specific as possible)6)What year did you purchase the wax and from where?7)What method did you used to initially create the knots?PS: I'm still eagerly awaiting some pictures. I'm hoping that out of the many pictures posted here that someone can find some pictures of 2 month old dreads started with neglect and with twist and rip - that have NEVER been waxed or crocheted. I've been very patient w/ this request. Any information on it's progress would be very much appreciated.

Seriously, this thread is still going on? The last time I checked Johnny was gaining respect for looking into wax defects. It seems the longer the conversations and "experiments" continue the more people are aware of his ignorance and selfishness. Looks like someone better make a copy of this thread before he smartens up and decides to delete the whole thing.

That's so GAY!!!


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

Exactly, I'm suggesting an alternative definition to combat negative usage rather than banning it. There are assholes out there that purposely use specific vocabulary to incite anger. I would rather use the phrase positively and hope it catches on. I know with my friends it has.soaringeagle said:
but your not using it as an insult this whole thing started over "i hate my loose hair its so gay" or something like that

self insulting but was meant to say its so stupid or ugly nat flamboyant fabulouse or efeminate

Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

I agree! We could also "own it." Personally, I like using "that's so gay!" for anything that is wonderfully fabulous or colorful. Like my drag queen friends, they're so fucking gay! :DKnottysleeves said:
I'm not saying the phrase "that's so gay!" should be banned or legally challenged or anything like that. I don't like censorship.

However, just because a slang phrase was popularized by a bunch of ignorant teens (and vapid pop singers like Katy Perry, ugh), it doesn't mean anyone NEEDS to use it. The English language has literally hundreds of ways to express that something is stupid or you don't like it or think it's silly, etc, without having to use a group's personal identity as a pejorative. Let's get creative. :-)

should i get dreads?


Introduce Yourself

Yup, you can still put your hair up, but not too tight as it will prevent movement to make knots/create weak spots. I only put my hair up when I go to school and as much as possible I leave my hair down. Oh and when I need to be really presentable for long hours at a time, I just wear a wool tam and tuck my hair in loosely.Julie Ellis said:
thanks for the info. and oh i can dig it :P can i still put my hair up?

Should Dandruff build up so quickly?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I've used the squeeze bottle several times and it's awesome. (Thanks NaturalWomyn!) I get the acv I need to get rid of itchies/dandruff and there's significantly less fall out than when I poured all over my hair. In addition, no need to purchase a squirt bottle if you're not picky. Apparently, Deafy used a washed mustard squirt bottle and it works out fine. It's also the same shape as the squirt bottle I bought, only difference: not opaque with red measurement lines.I'd highly recommend giving it a shot, especially since there's no need to go to the store, just rummage through recycling containers.Aaron"TheLegend" said:
Put it in a squeeze bottle....hmmm maybe. But yeah SE I used COLD COLD COLD water when I rinse. O chewie so you only had 1 drop of the DR.B stuff?? Hmm so many different styles of washing the scalp @.@
NaturalWomyn said:
I'm not sure how long you've been dreading but ACV is pretty conditioning so you may want to hold off on using it if it's un-knotting your progress. If you still feel you need to use it for your scalp try putting it in a squeeze bottle(you can find them at beauty supply stores) and just concentrate it on your scalp, no the hair itself.

seriously, coca cola dreadlocks?! and blah, cigarette smoke


Dreading Methods

Thanks SE and Mannie. Now I just have to find a spray bottle. After a day they still smell gross!@deafy - HAHA "Not only refreshing, its dreadfully good!", we should photoshop that onto something with a big red cross out and a link to better methods at the bottom.@PJ - It might eat dirt, but it'll eat at hair too and attract new dirt with the stickiness. Not worth it, IMO.@Meathead - I actually have some, haha maybe easier than getting a spray bottle.I hope Russian dude reads this thread. I had no idea that coke could peel paint or contain stuff that preserves dead bodies.and gross thought, owen, some people could argue that crap is natural. o.0

Another new dreadie


Introduce Yourself

I'm confused...baking soda and acv rinses help healthy locks form...FireChild said:
My hair is bleached and dyed. And it was dyed before I bleached. I'd rather have healthy locs that take longer to form.

MzElaineous said:
Welcome Wild Roots and congrats on product free hair! I joined: dreads saved by dreadlockssite.com group for the same reasons. Without this site I probably would have succumbed to wax products or crocheting.

Btw, your baby dreads look fantastic!

@firechild - no wonder you have to retwist if you use conditioner. Natural womyn gave an excellent tip when using acv as a conditioner. put the rinse in a squirt bottle, so that way it can be aimed at the scalp. better than putting conditioner over everything and having more twists than necessary fall out. It's also a fact that less twisting = less damage. SE may be blunt, but he's just looking out. happy dreading :)

Proof of the dangers..make jonny cut his dreads?


General Questions

it's an excellent idea. i wonder if there would be a way to actually get him to do that without faking the results to his benefit.i imagine a dreadlocked ninja sneaking up behind him and cutting one off in front of a video camera and then quickly slicing it in half and showing off the build up. anyone quiet and sneaky? mehehe...
