Totally Jumping Into This


Introduce Yourself

I have wanted dreadlocks my whole life and I was always too much of a chicken to get them but now that I am nearing 30 it's time to do me. For reals. I am so tired of coloring my hair, so tired of worrying how it looks, so tired of products, blow dryers, curling irons, straighteners ultimately to feel frustrated because my hair either gets too oily, won't hold a curl, or a straight and frizzes I am just so over it. So here I am Day 3 of not brushing or conditioning my hair. Frustrated already but not by the progress/process or anything more by finding the right shampoo. But I am excited because I know its all part of the process.

Shampoo


Dread Products

Day 3 of Natural Dreads. My hair is knotting more but my hair feels very oily and soft. I have been having shampoo issues. At first I was going to use Dr. Bronners but we have hard water so it made my hair feel like I didn't wash it at all. So I bought this Jamaican Castor Oil soap and mistook castor for castile.... felt great after wash but feels too soft. I woke up with an oily head this morning so I mixed some baking soda, ACV, tea tree oil, lemon oil and lemon juice together and washed my hair with that. It feels better but now that it's ending the day it feels oily again.... I ordered some from dreadshampoo.com per the advice on this site. Will this help my naturally oily hair dread easier?
