probly will be upgrading the server cpu soon


anything else

the new servers performing pretty well, but, the cpu and in particular the database queries are not performing up to par with the old server

the old server had 8 cores at 3.3 ghz this 1 has 6 at 1.6 ..

i found a cpu that's 24 cores at 2.0 that's just about 200 dollars on ebay..

unfortunately, its a bit early in the month to know for sure if i can afford 200 this month but its nice to know that i can get a much more powerful cpu for a reasonable price

near the end of the month (sooner if anyone wants to make donations..hint hint haha (don't worry i'll cover it if not)) i'll take a good look at what i can find thats 8 cores or more and 2.0 ghz or faster

 we had impressive performance from the old server but cost me 3/4 of my monthly income so i had to build our own

the cpu unfortunately was the 1 thing i had to cut costs on  to afford it at the time

its been a couple months now (actually not even) and i am seeing that the cpu is a little more strained then i'd like (not at all critically) and the sites backend has a performance test that's showing less then  optimal performance ratings

How long does hairneed to be to start


Introduce Yourself

theres a good number here who started from shaved heads

i should have asked what type hair you have..African hair types for example tend to lock up much shorter then say Asian types

like if you had a 1/2 inch to 1 inch afro that's enough to dread

How long does hairneed to be to start

well you can start at bald...it wont dread from bald (nothing to dread) but you can start .. it will dread when long enough

now typically that's 6 inches..but if you start from bald or 1 inch..theres a chance it might dread shorter ..not usually shorter then 4-5 inches  and if it does dread at 4-5 you might get a dread here and there (typically the side u sleep on) and no more for months till the rest is longer

i left a comment with more details on shampoos on your page but the most highly recommended is www.dreadlockshampoo.com they are the best of the best

how to start..  stop

stop combing stop conditioning stop towel drying stop running fingers through or wearing hats (especially fitted ones like baseball caps) stop using standard shampoos .. stop worrying if a hairs out of place..

basically stop doing everything you did to prevent it from dreading all your life

they will but potentially huge dreads

rip while wet its much easier and less painful

if they wont rip with water try putting olive oil only on the connected parts that wont rip let it soften it up then try to rip

if nothing will get them to separate don't use a knife but a razorblade or exacto blade or if needed those tiny lil scissors  you want  very precise control

get help with it

pull the dreads away from eachother putting tension on the connected hairs  now use surgical precision like your doing brain surgery slice carefully straight down but only like a millimeter or 2 like no more then 1/8th inch at a time then pull try to rip

repeat as needed try to keep the cutting to a bare minimum just to release enough to rip some more

once you have em all separtated out into reasonable sized sections ..separate after each wash..if needed

alternately (and perhaps better)

comb out the absolute worse areas ..if the sections are like 3 inches ..comb them out let them reform but this time keep them separated into no larger then 1 inch

any sections 1 inch or smaller just let them go and make sure they stay separated from neighbors

Help with smooth silky hair

nah look at your tub

you see thaty soap scum ring? no bar soaps are okj in dreads unless made for dreads

now there was 1 and only 1 falsified bad review of that stuff and that was made by a friend of someone who also makes shampoos (whos are so watery you can use a whole bottle and not get a lather or feel like it does anything)

look on this site theres nothing but rave reviews

look in fb groups everyone universaly agrees they are the best

they aren't cheap because they use the best ingredients there are

instead of water the highest quality organic beer possibly the only organic beer made

then theres microifine clays that are used in only the most expensive and prized cosmetics that super clean hair and scalp

then all organic essential oils

you know.. her profit margin is so low ..the cheap crap you buy in stores is sold from manufacturer to wholesaler to retailer ..each step adding 50-60% on

she cant sell to retailers or wholesalers cause she cant take 10% off and still cover costs.. so the wholesaler wouldhave to dopuble that then retailer double that

so if you wernt buying direct from the manufacturer it would be 3 times the cost

look on her site at the reviews ..she publishes every last 1

again theres 1 negative review

guess who from? no not the person who posted the other1 cause her friend made shampoos..no its from the friend that makes the shampoos

now 1 friend of mine did have issues (though she absolutely loved the shampoo and would never give it a bad review) but she has the worse water imaginable so it didn't work too well for her..which she regretted

theres thousands of reviews on this site alone

i would love to see where these mixed reviews are cause i bet ya anything i can already tell you..in fact..i just did

the sources are those 2 people

don't trust me..write her ask for a sample..write your own review

but trust me the crap your using now will not turn out well at all

you do not want soap scum in your hair making it stink
