Making your own dread-lock shampoo can be super rewarding, but is it a deep enough clean... Depending on the base that you are using, most people use a black soap base, using a glycerine base is strongly advised against because of the build up it will cause in your dreads, and it is almost impossible to get out!.. Making your own dread-lock shampoo can be a fun way to save money and be creative at the same time! Also when you make your own dread-lock products you can make multiple supplies for multiple purposes, such as a PH balancing shampoo for your locks, or a straight up cleansing shampoo, or light conditioning shampoo.. The sky's the limit!! One key trick when making your own products, that I have learned by experimenting, is you always want to seep any herbs you use, having herbs tangled up in your dreads kinda sucks, that's why you would want to infuse your oils with your chosen herbs through seeping, not just adding whole herbs to your creations.. But there are many different herbs you can use for different purposes as well! One of my favorite blends to use is a mixture of rosemary, mint, chamomile, and clove. It cleanses well, and freshens up more mature locks.. Any ideas of different bases to use and different blends of essential oils and herbs..
