some useful info

hey guys.
Here is some useful info about hair waxes.

I have been experimenting with different kinds and thought it could be helpful to people if I shared my findings.

I've tried 5 different wax's and now I'll rate them on a scale of 1-5.

Knotty Boy dread wax: looks good, smells good, feels good, works good. One thing: is too greasy in my opinion. somewhat expensive (around 20 bucks) 4/5

Dread Head Wax: EW. 1/5

Knotty Boy Gel: lameness. Doesn't work @ all. smells great though! somewhat expensive (around 15 bucks) 2/5

X-Ta extreme molding mud: really awesome product. Works really freakin' well! smells great, feels really good, kinda seems to feel dry after a few minutes so not greasy! EXPENSIVE!!!!!!! (around 30 dollars)4/5

Stiff @#!% oh behave styling stick: not too greasy, smells lovely. In a stick so easy to apply directly to hair. maleable substance so you don't have to heat it up in your hands first like K boy and X Ta. super cheap! available in most canadian drug stores. best bang for your buck (around 5 bucks) 5/5

These may work differently for different people.
These are just my own findings.

i love the way the community has been lately, all these new people have joined, lots of pictures its awesome, plus we have the greatest mod ever :D

i dont know if any of you remember but i thought i had lice a while ago. it all over with now, and my locks have been saved. even though they went through some shit... lice shampoo is awful, just awful.

i love how in the colder months dreads act as a blanket for your head... keep you nice and warm.

lemons...

i stopped washing my hair week 3 of having my dreads and been using fresh (watered down) lemon juice once a week when i rinse them...

gradually the pulp has clogged my spray bottle and it refused to work today so i said, fuck it and decided to poor the solution over my head, whats the worse that can happen? PULP! mind you, i relised there was pulp in the bottle but i figured how bad could it be... pretty bad.

sticky snot looking pulp all over my head and it wasnt coming out easily, i pulled a lot of hairs out of my dreads while trying to clean them up...

so the moral here is, dont say Fuck It and poor fresh lemon juice (pulped) on your dreadies!!!

=O )
