The wonderfull Drealockshampoo Lockin' Liquid


Dread Products

For along time i have been using sulphate shampoos. It was alright but i wanted better. Then i started using Baking soda and a shampoo and when i washed with that, afterwards it made me feel really, really greasy! yuck i hate that feeling! :P Then Heather of Esty Sent was very nice and gererous and sent me a sample of her Vital goods and was very very amazing!It ran out a few days ago and was out of shampoo besides the baking soda which didnt do much for me. So i went to the Wonderful dreadlockshampoo.com to buy their hand made products. I ordered Patchouli Locking liquid a few days ago and came today with a sample of gel Karma. When i smelled the bottle it smelled kind of strange along with the Gel Karma. i was soo exited to use it so i used it today. It was fantastic stuff i gotta tell ya! 1st of all it was basically an eraser that erased all of the dandruff on my hair instantly and probably way better than the dandruff shampoos. Then Because the bs would make my hair soo greasy i could use it as glue, it nom nomed all of the grease in my hair instantly to! Then finally my hair now weighs alot less then it did about 3 pounds less to be exact. Now i just gotta figure out how to use the Gel karma, when, how long, how often, and how frequently. Wonderful stuff! im definitely ordering from them again and maybe try something different. either peppermint, nag champa or dragons blood. I recommend this to anybody who has not ordered from them yet and buy their products. a bit pricey but the stuff is amazing and is organic, vegan friendly and good for the environment and well worth the money!

Ps: i think they should expand their franchise and sell other things like tshirts, tams, jewlery, and beads andthings like that.

Explain how do i Dilute Dr. Bronners shampoo?


Dread Products

i know, i have the same problem to and literally nothing works and the natural oils dont seem to work in it either. :P

Heather said:

i personally could never get dr. bronners to work for me because of our hard water. i would start off with only about a tsp or two in a cup and then fill that with water. i think the ratio might adjust depending on your water so its probably going to be a bit of trial and error the first couple of times. make sure you rinse, rinse, rinse.

Explain how do i Dilute Dr. Bronners shampoo?


Dread Products

Ive never used dr. bronners shampoo but i hear it doesnt wash out good for people with hard water. they say dilute 1 to 18 radio but what does that mean? could someone explain the process of dilution to me in an easier way because the shampoo looks like a great product to use (besides soap from shop.dreadlocksshampoo.com):)

Shampoo/Soap... HELP!!!


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

that anti residue formula? i currently have that stuff and it washes out pretty good but the smell is terrible and doesnt smell organic at all and it contains sulphates.

Heather said:

target sells dr. bronners in the cosmetics section. if you have hard water though is isn't going to work for you. dr. bronners liquid won't rinse out. the bars work a bit better though. i personally would just get a good clarifying shampoo. neutrogena makes one that says no residue. i'm currently using a shampoo bar from lush and i really like it. there's lots of options. you kind of just need to try some things and see what works for you:)
