I have questions about dreadwax - yes, I'm really asking this here lol
Alright man look, I've been dreading for a very short time (it can't even be considered dreads if you look at my first pictures haha, which were taken last night) and whether or not you read this, that is completely alright with me.But first, let me say this, don't know if it's already been said but here goes.First: You market dreads as if there is only one type of dread to have. The perfect, salon done dreads. They have to look like this, by the message you put out. Like there is only way to do this. The last time i went to your site, (i almost backcombed, but I am glad because I will save my hair. I hate not having hair) you labeled the natural way of doing it as 'neglect' That in itself implies that it is not a very good way of doing it. Why not change the wording, to something more friendly like natural.Second: Your videos target stoner kids and teenagers, most probably under the age of 16 and stress upon the poin that everyone who has dreadlocks is a stoner. False. I can prove that wrong if you'd like me to, but i won't. You also shove the backcombing/wax/dread locka products in the face of those kids, without warning of the damage it can do to hair. If people want to use your products, then let them. But you also must warn them that damage can and will be done during those processes, including the wax.Third: Wax. I'm not the smartest man in the world, but have you ever seen dried wax before? (i.e. a candle?) Now think of that in your hair, the harmful chemicals it has and the fact that if you pour water onto it, which is needed to provide nutrients to your hair, it has no effect. So in simple, everyday terms, your hair isn't getting the nutrients needed to grow and become strong.Four: Stop implying that everyone that has dreadlocks is a fucking pothead. I hate that gusto, because while I am open to people that smoke weed, I do not. And if I go out in public with dreadlocks I will automatically be looked upon and shunned as a pot head, or even a hippie. Sure we have free spirits here, and people that like to smoke weed. But the fact is, this is an accepting culture.Finally: I respect you for coming here and getting blasted. That takes balls man, and I didn't mean to sound harsh but I just want you to understand that some of the things you are doing are wrong and that you do not provide enough information. It is easy to take advantage of people. But harder to do the right thing. Now I have my own sins and whatnot, which will not be discussed, but I try to do right by people. Treat your neighbor as you want to be treated. That's the golden rule. So, good luck man and I wish you nothing but the best.
