Hi! This is the wrong forum for your questions. This forum is for natural dreadlocks without special maintenance, just washing and separating, thats all we do and that's all you need to do. Just stop your maintenance routine and go natural, it's way healthier!!!
Check out the dreaducation section of this website, there is all you need to know!
she has different sizes to offer, from small to large, which is waist lengths... its probably way to small for u i guess?!
Well i payed her 25 Euro which is around 30 Dollar? Since wool is kind of expensive over here it think the price is ok, but i don't
know what it would cost to ship stuff to the US... She is living in Mafra, Portugal
Today i got a nice handmade tam in the mail. It was handmade in Portugal (Europe) from 100% organic wool. I really like it and i want to share some pics and the link if someone is interrsted. Gritt is a very nice and friendly lady and does custom tams and hats for everybody!
You can find her work here: www.dawanda.com/shop/grtt-design or here www.etsy.com/shop/grttdesign
This is the tam a bought from her ah and btw it is size small for short to shoulder long hair...
I have used both, the liquid in the beginning of my journey (1st 2 month) and the bars right now. The liquid only works in soft water! If you have a different water type like in my case it leaves residue and the hair feels oily and sticky after a few washes. The bars don't relate to the water type, so that is way better. I use the teatree bars and i must say they last forever and i am very happy how this soap cleans my dreads. I have tested around a lot in the phase where the bronners liquid did'nt work out, but now i stick to the bars and i am happy.
I also live in europe and i wash with dr bronners bar soaps. I buy them from the Douglas website, but you can get them through amazon, too.
I is a good shampoo for dreads and i does'nt leave any residue!!! The liquid bronners is only good in soft water, the water type does'nt matter for the bars.
If you want to get rid of that sticky layer fast, i would use baking soda once in a ratio 1:10 (100mg in 1 liter of water) It's no problem to use baking soda only once!
End of the week i will try the Bronners Teatree barsoap. The liquid Bronners did not work out in the beginning of my journey because of
the hard water types in my area. I will leave a reply in this post how the barsoap works on my dreads. I am having the same problems of finding good available or local products for washing my dreads. For the last 2 month i have been using plain white soap, but it is way to harsh to the skin for using it a long time. So, the search is not over yet, but i hope to find affordable alternatives soon!
So I have washed my hair twice with Dr. Bronners Teatree barsoap and i must say that i really like it so far. The soap seems to rinse out very well and it doesn't leave a sticky feeling at all. I feel that this change of my washing product has speed up my dreading process at least a bit. I am very happy with the Bronnes barsoap and will continue washing my hair with it, And it is a product which is easyly available in Europe, too! Over here in Germany i could order it over amazon.de or get it at every Douglas perfume store for the same price (5,99 Euro). So i can fairly recommend it for washing dreadlocks!
