Moving Forward With Nature: My Dreadlock Journal

Thanks! I do still sort of see a slight gap, but I am thinking I may be
I am seeking people's opinions on the Tea Tree Tingle Shampoo from Trader Joe's. I have posted about it before, I still currently use it on my dreads and have yet to get the scalp issues that are potentially possible with it. What are other people's impressions of this shampoo? (those that have actually used it I mean)
I mean so far for me this shampoo is much easier as it already contains sea salt, so I don't have to mix up any kind of spray, and it leaves my hair feeling soft but not overly conditioned so my roots tighten and my hair feels nice and clean for a number of days after.
P.s. if the ingredients are needed I can provide them.
I used just water on my hair today (only because it had been 3 days since my last wash) I wanted to do something to combat the itchiness I felt. Oddly enough it worked quite well to fix the itch, I even used a cold water rinse to close the hair follicles...but I felt like a heavy or odd feeling on my roots, I have been using the tea tree tingle shampoo from Trader Joe's for a while, and I am wondering if that feeling I felt was the leftover bits of the shampoo (although I am very careful to wash it all out), if there is any, as for some reason my eyes really stuck a bit as the water ran off my hair, which in spite of the ingredient listed in the shampoo claiming to irritate the eyes, this doesn't happen often (which is sort of why I am wondering if I can stick with this liquid soap, since it would be a much simpler means to wash my hair.)
I guess the question I am left with from this is, was it the warm water I first used or just the act of getting the oil off my scalp that helped the itch? I am attaching a picture of my now dry dreads as further documentation of how my parting is probably fixed :D
Ok, I'll keep that in mind, in regards to the ingredients in the Dr Bronner's bar soap, since it states that the peppermint bars (the only ones I can currently readily find to buy locally), would it help in tightening up my roots, or would it be better to stick to adding sea salt to Dr Bronner's liquid and or using the tea tree shampoo?
I re-checked the ingredients recently from a package of the soap, the bar soap does in fact, contain sea salt, not sodium chloride. The ingredients are as follows: organic coconut oil, organic palm oil, sodium Hydroxide (but it claims that none actually remains in the soap after saponifying oils into soap and glycerin), water, organic olive oil, Metha Arvensis, organic hemp oil, organic jojoba oil, Metha Piperita, Sea Salt, Citric Acid, Tocopherol.
It seems like it's pretty good.
