what about giving your best dread tips? (:

what really helped me was the rubbing method to dread the hair at my scalp.

dreads or journalism?

hey - since the war started right around my 18th birthday, it's been on my mind a lot whether or not i will be drafted. Then i got to thinking - hey, if i join the army or get drafted, i could be a war photographer. photography's my second love, and could arguably be my first, since i consider films my first. my question for this group is this: would you think it would be worth it to join the army and take pictures if i had to cut off my dreads? (i would inevitably have to cut them)

which leads me to a digression: not only do women not have to register for the selective service, but once they are in the armed forces, they are not restricted to the same hairdos as are the men. of course one must recognize the differences between men and women, but i would argue that in order for us all to live in a society in which we are all as equal as nature allows, each gender must shoulder as many responsibilities as the other.

all i'm saying is that if i were a woman who were joining the military for the same reason, i might not have to cut my dreads. i love to hear people's thoughts, so please respond.

peace and love

Knotty boy VS. Dreadhead HQ question

I have had my dreadlocks for almost 2 years. I have ALWAYS used Knotty boy wax and soap. Last weekend, my friend gave me a jar of dreadhead hq wax. I was wondering, if anyone here had tried them both, and what worked the best for you? I used Dreadhead on one of my dreads, and it seems to be holding it pretty well, I just dont like the smell. :(
Also, on the Knotty boy subject, does anyone know if they still make the liquid shampoo? Last I checked they just made it in bars, but the liquid shampoo seems to work better on my dreads..
Any input from anyone would be cool.
Thanks in advance. =)
