Zum bar soap


Dread Maintenance

and i can see so much sectioning going on in your pictures. Yours are going to be wonderful !!!! I admire you for your patience....i am one of those people that have to get a boost. Mature dreads don't wanna be dry...but baby dreads need to stay away from the oil. Oil is your enemy right now...it will undo those pretty sections. Stick with the bs use that luxurious soap on your skin.

Zum bar soap


Dread Maintenance

when i started dreading mine...i didn't have to work or go to school so i had lots of time to play. I backcombed a lot of them and twisted/ripped a few, braided a couple and left the rest to do their own thing. I have a mishmash of all kinds of things going on lol. Thank god i had not heard of crochet because i might have tried that too. You are right about doctor bronners. I have been using it for more than 20years on my body...have used it only a few times on my hair. I just read the ingredients...it is weird. It says Pure castile soap but in the ingredients that isn't even there.

I think the oil would hinder your dreading process

Zum bar soap


Dread Maintenance

I have never tried it. I would use it on my body but it contains way too much oil to use on my dreads. My dreads are only a couple years old and my hair is not real dry or brittle. All that oil is very moisturizing and very good for your skin....but do you really need or want that much oil in your hair?

IS IT TRUE THAT IF YOU HAVE DREADS YOU SHOULD NOT EAT MEAT?


Dreads and Diets

loli know these posts are rather late...but i was bored and was reading through the forum. I read something that kinda disturbs me. It is not funny to mess with someone else"s beliefs. It is not funny to make someone believe they ate something that they truely believe is wrong. They believe this so much that it made them vomit. Where is the humor in this? If someone believes it is a sin to eat pork why was it funny to trick them into believing they ate sausage? It was a very cruel thing to do. There is nothing funny about it. and it sure as hell wasn't a joke. Just because you don't understand the reasons behind someone else's beliefs does not give you the right to be mean about it. Shame on you.

IS IT TRUE THAT IF YOU HAVE DREADS YOU SHOULD NOT EAT MEAT?


Dreads and Diets

I was raised in a Seventh Day Adventist family. The religion goes by the old testament food rules like the Ital diet.Eating certain meat (animals with cloven hooves and things that crawled on the bottom of the ocean) was prohibited. We were allowed to eat beef but most didn't .I also went to a private school so i wasn't really exposed to anything else. One of the most cruel things that I ever experienced was a field trip the school took us on to a slaughter house. Talk about brain washing a child! It was explained to me that not eating pork was because of triginosus ( not sure of the spelling) which is a parasite in undercooked pork. Same with scavengers they were considered "unclean".So the laws were set down for health reasons. I grew up and have my own beliefs now ..which differ greatly from what i was raised, but my diet hasn't changed. I tried a vegan diet but missed cheese too much (soy just isn't the same). I raised my children without meat. when my daughter was 4 years old she went to a birthday party and was given a hot dog...her first exposure to meat. I promptly took her home when i realised she had eaten some of it. I was worried ...she had never had any meat and did not have the digestive enzymes to digest it. I thought i would have a very sick little girl. Nothing happened ......nothing at all. She did not get sick. She is still a veggy by choice. My other daughter is a meat eater. Their choices....i never forced my opinions on them. Gave them the information and the options but let them choose.but i digress...your hair doesn't control your diet. It is a choice... dread or don't dread.....eat meat or don't eat meat.....it is up to you.

Ancient cultural history of dreadlocks and their significance


History and Religious Significance

i had read before about Shiva's followers wearing "ja Taa" i was curious and asked a man from India what ja Taa means. He looked at me blankly for a moment ( my pronunciation must have been really bad) so i wrote it down for him. He said it means "Shoo go away". In India the language is very diverse. Each village can have it's own variation of the language. so it could mean something entirely different in different parts of the country...I don't know. but i thought it was interesting.

lice prevention


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

i am looking at the ingredients of Advantage (my dog's flee treatment). It is a once a month flea and lice treatment. main ingredient is imidacloprid. Any chemist on here know where or what that comes from? and isn't calundula (pot marigold) an insecticide? don't know how safe it is or how much is needed. but maybe something to check on.

having a "will my dreads ever recover from crochet" day...


Dreading Methods

it isn't really fair to your dreads to compare the feel of them to your friend's temporary accidental baby dread. it isn't gonna feel the same cause her's is not a mature dread.
