Rainbow Gathering 2012


Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures

Ah, there's hope for somewhere close enough to SC...with running my shop, I wouldn't be able to take full advantage, but I'd sure love to come get a feel for it...

Dr. Woods Shampoo?!?!?!?


Introduce Yourself

I read over the ingredients, I'm not sure about new dreads, but it should do well on established locks. The coconut oil should work better for those with hard water also. It's definately worth a try, because if it doesn't work well on your dreads, it would make a great body wash.

Bonus for dreadies...they add sea salt.

WHAT INGREDIENTS SHOULD I STAY AWAY FROM


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

stay away from coconut oil if you are allergic to coconut...it's the most cleansing of the oils and works best in any type of water...olive oil is usually too heavy for newer dreads, but seems fine if it's less than a third or so of the oils used. cocoa butter is definately too heavy unless you have very corse or ethnic hair, or unless it's used as less than about 5% of the total oils in the soap, same goes for shea butter...Natural soaps should never have to add glycerin, the saponification process creates it, mass produced soaps remove it during manufacture which is why they have to add it back ...

almost forgot, castor oil makes nice bubbles, but it's very conditioning. it should be way down on the list of ingredients also...

Organic Root Stimulator Products


Dread Products

i'm not sure why you couldn't 'freshen' with a witch hazel/essential oil mix after some thought...even the vodka formula i've seen used as a root stimulator actually likely works because it would lift the scalp's production of sebum...just sharing the thoughts that hit later...
