when wrapping is there any specific type of wrap that may work better? Or just anything that holds some of the section together for a while? I have 3 different ways i know to do it (& i imagine possibilities are endless) just wondering if any are "better" than others.

not scrubbing at all. for the paste i just let it lob off a spatula onto my head so i don't touch anything, for the shampoo/bs i just let it run through, & for the bar i lather around my hair line & then let the water run it through. I use a jar to pour the water/shampoos onto my head, or i mermaid swish in the tub/bowl so i'm not actually touching or scrubbing the hair. trying to do as minimally invasive washing as i can.

to dry i just squeeze out some, shake lightly, drip & air dry for however long it takes.

i use sea salt sometimes a bit before i wash in a spray bottle, or in the baking soda when i use it. i also use the locking gel. i've been using it a bit more now because the sections are slowly becoming easier to pick out.

not a problem, i can give that a try. i only did it so that i wouldn't drip all over the bathroom floor, i actually wiped out in there yesterday & screwed up my knee...so ouch. but yeah i'll just throw a towel over my shoulders & go :)

i'm not too worried about things, it'll happen, it just might take a bit more time <3

thanks for the responses SE your input is always appreciated!

So wait. With the Dreadlock Shampoo you pretty much just squeeze the soap into your hair and not scrub?

i add some to a jar with some water & shake it, then pour it over my hair, half on top half underneath so i make sure it gets everywhere (i use my bs the same way). i think most ppl either just massage their roots or their hairline tho.
