Hey all, I am new to dreadlocks (mine are only 3 weeks old) but I have been washing them with Whole foods 365 brand shampoo to wash my dreads. Its fragrance free and says on the bottle that it will not strip the scalp of its natural oils. I haven't had any problems with dandruff or much itching, but I want to make sure that the shampoo isnt keeping my hair from dreading. Does anyone have any experience with this shampoo? Thanks!

no but i would highly dpubt its good for dreading can you post tye ingredients

 

i would very trongly recomend you get a real dread shampoo

www.dreadlockshampoo.com comes highly recomended ...its all i will ever use

comercial shampoos  have residue (fragrence is not residue thats sent wich has to be airborn to smell it!)  and they are conditioning i would stop using it and get a proper all natural dread shampoo (if u get fromthat site...liqu9d till mature then  bars)

sodium myristoyl sarcosinate, - conditioner ... not good for dreads penetrates most lu]ikely leaves residues  maybe toxic in higher concentraions  being 1 of the 1st ingredients id call it a high concentration

cocamidopropyl hydroxysultaine, - skin iritant like sls though not as dangerouse it does nothing good for yor skin or hair , it might not  be on the "warning avoid at all costs" lists but its not a recomended ingredient

disodium cocoamphodipropionate    conditioning maybe toxic in high concentratios  may weaken immune system

sodium cocamphoacetate,  -conditioning  contamination risks  not thoroughly tested it is derived from orgnic coconuts  but chemically altered  no specifil]cly known health risks, emphasis on known..

skipped the salt

gluconolactone  a solvent  often found in digestive tracks of mammls  sounds like stomach acids? im unsure

sodium benzoate, - a common food presservative and i think its  digestive aid too..hmm  odd ingredients for shampoos its a dietary additivfe

phenethyl alcohol  prevents bacteria from growing in the shampoo

glyceryl caprylate,  conditioner  it would be a miracle if your hair dreas washing with neary 100% conditioners

citric acid penetrates inside the hair if strong enough dissolves it from the  inside out

the last 4 ingredients are good for hair

but they all wil make it silky smooth and tangle free

That's all I use, is the dreadlock shampoo SE recommended, and only a couple times a week at most. I don't really find it necessary to 'wash' them a lot, just rinsing my hair daily if needed, it feels nice.

#1 thing I saw is phenethyl alcohol.......ALCOHOL. It's not good for your hair, it dries it out, which seems beneficialin the beginning, but long term effects are horrible. Soaring Eagle knows some really fantastic dread shampoos to use!!
