Dr. Bronners Liquid shampoo. How to wash with this shampoo?


Dread Products

This sound intresting..so you dont wash your head, but you spray that on your hair often, and it removes dandruff's and oil from heir....?

Also, using bc/acv without rubbing would be totaly useless for me...i rub little bit my head when i use bc and i still have dandruff''s...if i wouldn't rub my head would probably look like old man with white hairs..

I make my own mix and put it into a spray bottle. I use this 2-3 times a week and have been since the very beginning of my dreading journey. I never found that it made any locks loosen. I only do the baking soda and acv soak 2-3 times a month.

1/4 Cup Water
3/4 Cup Doctor Bronner's
4 teaspoons of Apple Cider Vinegar
6 Drops Tea Tree Oil
6 Drops Lavender Oil
6 Drops Rosamary Oil

Some people add a teaspoon or so of glycerin too. I've never done that.

Good luck!

Is this shampoo is ok for my new dreads??


Dread Products

dude, i wrote before that baking soda/ acv is b ad for my scalp. it doesnt remove dandruffs at all, and my head is so itchy, thats why im going to use liquid shampoo :/ I would be ok with soda/acv, but it doesnt help me i those aspects, only good for removing oil + its 100% natural, so i know i dont get any chemicals on my hair, but that all :/

beckbeck said:

have you tried the baking soda wash? I find I prefer it, and a lot of dreadheads use it only, and don;t use shampoo

I feel like the more mature your locks are, you can use bars. Liquid is much gentler on baby locks. And like you'd normally wash your locks, don't wash the hair itself. Just wash your scalp and let the soap rinse through your hair

I found dr. bronners soap bars and liquid soap to buy in my country!! So what should i buy? i would be better with liquid soap or soap bars? Also, if i have itchy scalp with dandruff, what soap is best for me? Some one sayd before tea tree and rosmery are best for dandruff and ithy scalp, but maybe there is something better??
Baba Fats said:

Purecastilesoaps are NEVER meant to to be used in 100% concentration. That would definitely damage your hair and scalp. Dr. Bronners is meant to be diluted anywhere from 1 part soap-12 parts water, up to 1 part soap-40 parts water

I think if i will use castle soap bar, the pure soap, i will have even more dandruffs....pure soap is very bad for scalp because if you wount wash it exelent, it will dry scalp so much, and how i can wash it very good if i cant rub my scalp..well, idk, it so much troubles with my dreads..

beckbeck said:

coconut oil conditions hair, probably not great. go have a look at some pure castile soap bars, or make them yourself! the only ingredients in those are Lye and Olive oil. they're pretty much super mild, super pure soap. (when people say Dr bronners, they are talking about a big brand manufacturer of castile soap, so if they have that where you are, thatmightmake your search easier). I am in Australia so Can't get dreadlcokshampoo.com either unless I want to pay $30 per bar for some soap. to me, that defies the whole concept of dreadlocks. you may find some dreadlock shampoos in your area, if you do, just post the ingredients on hereandsomeonewill help you! but I use plain castile soap and find it works great (my scalp took about a week and a half to adjust,so I had oily hair for a short while but now it's all fine and works a teat :)

I done half cup of bs for 5 cups of water. After rinse, my scalp was not clean at all, i rubbed my fingers throw my scal and it was very slippery and some kind of white thing, i think that white thing was wet dandruff's. And after white vineger wash scalp was still slippery with that white stuff (there was very little of that white stuff). And ofcourse its still itchy. I didnt had apple cider vinager but i dont think that there is so huge difference between acv and white vineger..

Baba Fats said:

What are your ratios of BS to water? That'll make a bi difference in how well it works. And are you doing the ACV rinse after you wash out the BS? BS is base, it'll fry your hair and scalp if used alone. ACV is an acid that will reset your natural pH balance. You shouldn't get dandruffy or flaky if you use ACV afterwards?

BS is only good for removing oil from hair...but after BS my head is still itchy and theres alot of dandruff, bs dont remove em...

Baba Fats said:

Oh, I know that Europe has high taxes for shipping from the US. That's part of the reason to buy multiple bars at a time. But if you don't have the cash to drop on 6 bars, the BS wash is probably your best bet. I don't know if you can get Dr. Bronners there. If you can, and have soft water, that works great too

Bar cost 10$ + shipping to Lithuania will be probably like 20$+, moreover there is duty payment or how is caled when shipping from usa to europe, so it will cost even more....

Corn sugar is High Fructose Corn Syrup, so it's not actually all natural. Companies have been pressing for HFCS to be changed to corn sugar, on packaging, because of the bad rap that the name has with it.

Aloe Vera is too conditioning, andGlycerinwill condition your hair too. If you have african textured hair, both are ok. But if not, stay away from them in shampoo.

The BS wash is great. I'm not sure where in Europe you are, but they may call it Bread Soda around you. It's NOT the same as baking powder.

Why can't you get the soaps from dreadlockshampoo? They ship overseas. If you by 5-6 bars at a time, the shipping is the same as for 1 bar. Then you don't have to buy it over and over
