  1. I know there is already a sticky on products but im way too lazy to rummage through there, sorry :) .
    so what im askin is, I'm starting my dreads in about 3 days and I don't have the time or money to order dr.bronners, so, are there any good residue free soaps/shampoos i could buy at a drug store (walgreens or snyders) or even at the local heath foods coop?

    For a few weeks I have been using normal shampoo (WITH CONDITIONER) and I don't see much change, they still lock up like they used to :p

    not in my area... more so the rainbows that are going under... though i think someone else did buy cub a while back, but its still going strong... as far as i know :]
     
  13. off topic but i don't wanna flood the boards: what is it with parents and friends who are like "DON'T DO IT!!! DON'T GET DREADS!! blahdy blah blah" Why? I ask them and they have no good reason, they just spew uninformed "facts" like you HAVE TO SHAVE THEM OFF and THEY ARE VERY DIRTY and stuff like that. they act like my hair is going to become permanently dreaded forever and ever and the roots with dread and if i don't think they are right for me in four months i will have to shave my head....-_- I know it isn't true but im easily set off and it DRIVES ME UP THE WALL!!!! People who have barely even seen dreads before are telling me about them and that i should get them "professionally done". errrrrrg. ok. done ranting. :D
    but wait...maybe i should get them "professionally done" because it seems every time a "pro" does them, they fall out right away...that would suffice as a good test run..but then again, i could always just let my hair go for a week and call that a test run? it would be free too...im going with that. lol.

    just tell them if you don't end up liking them, you will deal with that when the time comes.... i didnt tell many people that i was getting them before i did, but my mom was super excited about them. the only people who were like 'why?' were matt's little sisters :p
     
  15. lol thats cute! Probably would have been a better idea for it to be a surprise, but I'm so excited its hard not to tell everyone! lol Besides, thats a good point, if I'm not diggin them in a month or a week or whatever, ill deal with it then. :) I'm starting them tonight, I washed my hair earlier but i realized i hadn't taken before pics yet so i decided to use normal shampoo and conditioner (if i hadn't i would have had no choice but to start dreads).
