Dreadlocks and Bee hives?
« on: December 21, 2006, 11:42:59 PM »
I'm getting dreadlocks... (well maybe). and allot of the products I would be using are organic, made from Bee's wax, and other organic products. And I was wondering if this would be bad? Cause well I don't want to get stung just cause I like my hair a certain way!

Ha, now that would be a hoot and a hollar.  I don't think that the wax would attract bees, if you know what I mean. Cindi

What you need to do is maintain your dreads with lemongrass oil and honey. That will keep them away.

having had dreads, you'll get rid of'em  when it gets hot. Don't know how the jamaicans stand the heat w/ dreads. Like an oven door on top of the head.

It has never ceased to amaze me how incredible the dread locks are.  they are a work of art and I must say that I admire anyone that has the gumption to create this work of art that befalls upon the head.  Great day. Cindi

you don't plan on looking for a job anytime soon??   8-)
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Way back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, I was involved in college atheletics.  Long hair was the norm, but atheletes had hair length requirements.  I had long hair, but to hide it, some girls in the dorms would braid it for me and I always wore a hat to keep it hidden.  It eventually drove me crazy, impossible to keep clean, itching, and the hours getting it braided up again so the coaches wouldn't hassle me.  I guess I was making a statement by refusing to cut my hair, thought I was outsmarting the coaches, whatever.  It must have impacted my psyche, because I shaved my head and have kept it that way most of the time. Aside from the occasional comment about resembling a serial killer, it was and has been much more comfortable.  Comb it with a towel, off and running.  bahahahaha

Braided is one thing, Dreadlocks is a whole other critter.

Same problem though.  Keeping it clean.  People make statements with their hair, sometimes it is suprising.  There is a kid we hired that has a long pony tail, and his head is shaved on the sides.  He came in the other day to pick up his check, on his way to a party.  I don't know how many lbs of axle grease or whatever he used, but the pony tail had become a mohawk style doo, and he had some kind of makeup on his face.  The mohawk was about 20 inches tall!!!!  I didn't know who the heck it was, so I made him produce ID before I would give him his pay!!  He was very insulted.

I say go for it. I have been thinking about dredds myself for awhile. My sister has dredds that reach past her waste. She has never had trouble with being employed and just recently has accepted a position as a partner in a established Massotherapy Office. The funny thing about that is it is on the campus of a conservative catholic college that has an abbey onit. She has many clients from the general public as well as nuns from the school, and the retirement center on the grounds too.

My sister has also helped me harvest honey and had very little trouble with bees being attracted to the wax in her hair. I will have to look around a bit but I think I still have a photo of her feeding the hives without her bee suit on her dredds hanging and no stings!!

patios is the language/dialect commonly used in jamaica. It has roots in french, spanish english and african. 

"but Boss, is our hair and our heat it how it mus affec we? Just a likke patwah(patois)"

Translation "but sir/mr it is our hair and our heat, how must it affect us"

Andersmnelson not sure if that was what you wanted the translation of.

Just apply a little banana oil to those dreads. That should do it.

Sean- if i understand, you are less affected by the heat because your acclimated? Personally, I loved having the long hair and eventually dreds, but couldn't handle the summers. One day i just walked into a barber and went for a #2 razor cut. Almost three feet of hair/dreds to the floor. People were watching me get this cut like it was a spectacle. For years I wore it short. Just this fall, decided to go long again. Its now about short shoulder length. In the back of my head, I know i will cut it the first 95 deg day.
