apple cider vinegar


Dread Maintenance

I have a bar of bucks bar shampoo on the way, I was wondering if in the early stages of dreading would it be recommended to still use an apple cider vinegar rinse? Oh, and I have hard water.

That sounds like a fabulous idea to just soak and be clean. Unfortunately, I have hard water making Castile soap a bad idea. Does your hair just look greasy if hard water is used w Dr Bronners? Or is it deeper than that?

Yes, I agree. I've heard, read, and researched terrible things about SLS. I've just recently turned my house natural. I make our cleaners, detergents etc. Also - side note - 2 weeks now of not smoking cigarettes!

Thank you so much. So only the slsulafates leave residue? Fragrances and other ingredients are fine?

Thank you! I'll have to try it! I have a lush gift card and was unsure.

Is lush's squeaky green desirable for dreads? Area their liquid shampoos safe for dreads?

Thank you SE and everyone for your help! I'm starting the babies the first of the year and I can't wait. Absolutely excited, I feel like this is what I'm supposed to do :-)

Say I have my locks for a year or 2 and I decide I no longer want dreads, will soaking in conditioner and olive oil work? If it does, whats the condition of hair like after its all done?
