shampoo reviews


Dread Products

Angeleyes:

Regarding shampoo, somewhere I saw @soaring-eagle mention a charcoal shampoo that isn't listed on the dreadlockshampoo.com website and also that baking soda can weaken hair.

I've seen elsewhere, that dreads should be soaked once a month in baking soda to prevent mold.

Does this charcoal shampoo do this?

Or is it necessary to use anything as a monthly soak, if you're already using a great shampoo?



I wouldn't recommend soaking in baking soda. That's a sure way to end up with severely damaged hair.

The charcoal shampoo is a deep cleaner. If your hair feels especially dirty, you were using shampoos that left residues or some such as that. That's when you use it.

The best way to prevent mold is to make sure your hair is dry before putting anything over it like a hat and before you go to bed. You can also put mold inhibiting essential oils in your hair or shampoo. If you get mold or worried you might Dreadlock Shampoo has a mold preventer and treatment called Rot Knot.

Washing too often due to itchy oily scalp


Help! Save My Dreads

Hello welcome to the forum. We are both 6-7 months along. I'll third(?) the suggestion to dreadlockshampoo.com. Before dreads I fought an itchy, flakey, yet oily scalp forever. I though I was just going to have to live with it. I was allergic to every shampoo I ever tried no matter how natural they claimed to be. And believe me that was allot. Those problems are now gone.

So far I've tried all the liquid shampoos from Vicki. I still have a total of about two bottles leftbetween all the scents. The only one I don't like is the Nag Champa. For some reason it makes me feel nauseous. The Dragons Blood is my favorite for sure.

I'm wondering if even though the bottom of the back of my head is still loose I might need to change to the bars some of the times. My dreaded hair is starting to feel a bit dry and I've got loose hairs trying to attach theirselves to areas they shouldn't be. Kind of hard to explain but like bridging from an area two inches away across three dreads to the center of a mature dread.

me N my dyed And bleached dreads


Introduce Yourself

In regards to #4 while I don't go to school I do fly a lot. And since I started dreads I have gotten pulled from the security line and had both my bag and my person searched. At first I thought it was my bag but this last time I was pulled even before my bag went through the X-ray machine for a "random check". Not so random when it's every time. Don't let it get to you.

Remember just be you and your dreads will reflect that. I learned years ago even before dreads that my hair is my hair and will never look like someone else's. And it shouldn't because it's mine not theirs.

That said my dread envy is for Castaway J's lovely dreads. I hope my hair turns out as awesome as his.

AMP,

I am extremely jealous of your curly and quickly dreading mane! (i have stick straight and I feel like I've just begun what many, like you, experience in a couple of months!...but it's getting there. I mean, takes awhile, but it is doing it's thing.) Anyway, It's just awesome your progress and looks great! :)

Not sure why I didn't see this earlier. Thanks. Believe me it's not totally dreaded up at all yet. The whole back of my head is just starting to knot and I have one stubborn clump right in the middle of the left side of my head that is a compleatly loose curl. It looks lost. The good thing with it going slower is you have more control of separating.

It really does still amaze me how hair shrinks when it's dreading. I measured my front two dreads today. They are 5 inches, that hair started out as my longest at 16 inches. The shortest hair to start was 6 inches and is the longest dread at 6 inches. So odd.

I can understand the small town crowd.  Here in Eastern NC we are really rural.  But I have to remind myself that I chose to do dreadlocks because it increases my sense of beauty, not everyone else's.  People will always judge what is different to them.

I for one think they look awesome for 4 months and you are on track to have some really killer looking dreads in the future.  

If you ever feel judged come see me at the beach before you go!  We can frolic in the ocean and let the sun dry our hair.  My dreads will hit 1 year come May, my husband will be at 2.5 years, another guy at church has had his for 15 years, and I just connected with another cool chick in Jacksonville who is about 2 months in now.

I will be posting some updated pics soon to show my progress.  We can be dreadlocked "freaks" together!

Thank you guys. I apriciate it more than you realize. I feel a bit better today. I was stared at but got my first ever compliment. Felt pretty good.

I'm feeling a bit bummed today. I went into town and got looked at with disgust all day by judgmental people. Hawaii was easy with its relaxed aditude and open thinking but small southern towns are hard. Makes me want to get out of here even more.

I'll be staying in North Carolina at least until June for work. I'm still working out the details but I'm hoping my next destination will be Washington state. I do want to go to the national rainbow gathering but we'll have to see how things work out first. It sure will be a long drive.
