Soap question, homemade nettle/milk bar


Dread Maintenance

Absolutely. Your right, but the lye matter a lot. Therefore the number from the whole combination is more important than these oils in this case. I believe dr bronner have a lot of olive of coconut too?

Soap question, homemade nettle/milk bar


Dread Maintenance

Thanks for your answer. Maybe anyone know the perfect condition number for a dread bar soap? If, I will make a new receipe just for my hair. It's just how less conditioning for dreads it would be I'm not sure about for be able to make my own..

Soap question, homemade nettle/milk bar


Dread Maintenance

I wonder if this soap I've made for my body can be good for my hair too? What are you think?

Ingredients: Coconut oil, olive oil, sunflower oil, rapeseed oil, milk, green tea extract, nettles, rosmarin and some essential oils.

The milk (3%) isnt calculated in the picture, but it's mostly there for the foaming and for a less itchy skin.

My dreads is 9 month and almost matured, but there is also some babies from loose hair and a bit in the ends which still loose without knots. I have soft water.

Dreadlock shampoobar


General Questions

I'm a swede too, and when I bought shampoos from dreadlocksshampoo it was an issue with the payment trough the Paypal link, but I used the contact form and asked if I could get help to place the order and Vicki sent me an invoice to my email which I could pay trough Paypal. It was very easy and a week later my order arrived :) I will never buy any other shampoo again.

The shipping cost for 2 items like liquid shampoo and a locking up gel is around $20.

Scandinavian dreadlock progress


Dreadlock Picture Gallery

Ah, one more tips if you want a shampoo anyway. I bought shampoo from dreadlocksshampoo.com. The shipping is expensive, but I love the shampoo and have to say it's worth every dollar, cent and penny. But we also have Dr. Bronners shampoo in some health stores here, or from dreadspullen in NL with lower shipping costs and no other fees. Personally I prefer dreadlocksshampoos locking up liquid to my baby dreads or BS wash.

Scandinavian dreadlock progress

Hi, from another dreading scandinavian :)

Baking powder is NOT the same as Baking Soda. In sweden where I Iive BS is named Bikarbonat. Maybe it's the correct name in Denmark too?

Good luck with your dreads!

Just a Hi from sweden and thanks for this site :)


Introduce Yourself

Hi.

First I have to say I'm so happy for this site :) I'm from sweden and started my dreads 2 weeks ago with TnR. After my second wash where I used acv for the first time (after the baking soda) all TnR was gone. Therefore I'm so glad for this forum, because without it, I haven't understand it's normal. I let them be..

Now I'm on two weeks tomorrow and today I found my first knots.

Shampooooooooo


Dread Products

I knit bags to my soaps. To my shampoo bars I made them in wool andhang them up to dry after every use. I got a nice foam trough the bags and my soaps seems to be fresh until nothing is left from them.

I got a test of Goddess when I bought Locking up Liquid and love the smell. Should try it out soon.

First crochet tam


Dread Accessories

Awesome!

Me to crochet and knit and it makes both me and my dreads happy ;) For my dreads, I've made some towels in 100% wool to squeeze out them with after washing and to have on my pillow when I sleep. It's nice to be able to made things in the material you want.
