i hear to many complaints from this community of head stress and such.... Here is a simple answer.

How to do a scalp massage
Scalp massage is the movement of the flesh of the scalp. The finger tips (both hands may be used if one lacks the necessary gripping strength) are placed in a static location of the scalp, next the grip upon the scalp is tightened and relaxed while still the fingertips remain on the same area of the scalp. The scalp itself is manipulated with respect to the scull bone, rather than the hair being manipulated with respect to the scalp.

feel the tightness level of the sides of your scalp, now feel the top of your scalp... if their is a greater level of tightness on the crown of the head, then attention must be paid to loosen that and all other portions of the scalp to equi-tightness.

It is my theory that the negative downward forces of stress and frowning, are catalysts of baldness' occurrence. Then a frown occurs, the downward force draws down upon the top of the scalp, and excess skin accumulates around the chin and neck. If a joyous attitude perpetuates your being, and if an upward force is periodically exerted on the scalp alopecia will be slow to afflict oneself.

I had to get a replacement driver's license. The clerk asked me if I wanted to keep the old photo or take a new one. "Cuz I notice you have dreadlocks now."

I said "Oh. Um..."

And she said "Show them dreads, girl!"

So now I have a swell new driver's license photo sporting my babydreads. :-)

hey dreadies..

I'm sorry for another text-only, non-dread-related post, but this is very important..

Please, please, PLEASE go out and vote tomorrow. I'm very upset as to how many people aren't taking this election seriously and aren't taking part in it. And honestly, I believe voting Nader is the same thing as not voting at all. Even if you have good intentions, he's an impossible win and you might as well make a REAL decision for the presidency. Please take that into consideration... ESPECIALLY FLORIDIANS!! Our state is SO important in the election!! PLEASE, you guys. PLEASE take the time to get out there and let your voice be heard.

I'm sorry again, but I'm trying my hardest to stop the indifference of even one or two people. Everyone's vote counts. Period.

Much love to you all.
