WAKARUSA


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

Hey guys, anybody going to wakarusa this year? it's a music fest in the ozark mountains of arkansas and i'm dying to go this year! my baby's dad has gone several years but i've never had the chance until this year. none of my friends are into that sort of thing which pretty much sucks for me because i can't exactly go solo ya know! anyway, just wanted to see if anybody was planning on going and your past experiences with it as well!

Is there a such thing as the "wrong" Dr. Bronners soap??


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Yea that makes a lot of sense now that u mention it! U think just doing the baking soda rinse would be better for it? And if so how do I go about doing that?

Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I bought some dr bronner's liquid soap and diluted it a pretty good bit, but the way it makes my hair feel is TERRIBLE! it's the peppermint kind? so not sure if that matters? but it makes my hair feel like it's coated in a flim of goop, for lack of a better term! especially since now i'm resectioning some of my dreads, it's making it nearly impossible to seperate them! any suggestions?

Introduce Yourself

thanks for all the input! well, i didn't think they were that thick, especially compared to some i've seen..i just chalked up the low number to the fact that my hair is so thin.. but now i'm starting to worry! ha maybe i will try to resection a few bigger ones. a few do look like they're forking in two directions so maybe i'll start there! but they're varying in size, from small to bigger.. as far as wearing my hair down, i actually did today when i took my daughter to the park and it felt great! :)

Introduce Yourself

hey guys, im randi and i just started my journey less than a week ago. i was THIS close to buying the 'jonny clean' dread kit until i found this site. thank god!! ha i had never heard of the twist and rip method until i came here so i decided to try it b/c i didn't think i would have the patience for neglect! well i think it turned out pretty great but i've been having doubts creep in every once in a while.

First off, I only have 20 dreads, which seems like a small amount and makes me wonder if it makes me look like i don't have much hair! i had thin hair to begin with, so it was probably to be expected...but still I just wonder if anybody else out there has the same issue..

Second, i'm having a hard time getting the courage up to wear my hair down in public..usually i wear it pulled back which i absolutely love the look of.. but wonder when the time will come when i'm confident enough to just let it down and go!

I think that about sums it up...i know it's a journey and i'm so excited to be a part of something so liberating and beautiful.. any input would be appreciated!

What if I work-out and swim a lot?


Dreading Methods

I've been wondering this same thing so I'm glad u asked! I run everyday and was wondering how that was gonna play out with not washing my hair that often! I just dreaded last week though and so I've only washed it twice and that's seemed to do fine
