Dawn Ultra Dish Soap


Dread Maintenance

Lol. Well i guess it worked then? I generally recommend no ultra because it's a lot more harsh. Oh well. Hopefully it resolved your issue. Oh and the extra dreadiness is thanks to the super stripping you just did with the wash. Your hair will return to normal in time.

Help! My Hair Feels Sticky and Gritty


Dread Maintenance

Don't bother getting the neutrogena shampoo. That stuffs crap. Go pick up a small bottle of dawn dish washing liquid. The regular blue one, no ultra. That stuff will work better at removing all the residue in your hair and not leave it silky soft like the neutrogena will.

Stinky/Sour smelling scalp


General Questions

Could be fungus. It smells a bit like sour cheese. You might need a medicated shampoo to clear it. Also you only shampoo every 2-3 weeks? I would definitely bump that up to at the very least once a week especially with all the activity she's doing.

What do you wash with?


Dread Maintenance

I'm going to chime in here. I love the dreadlock shampoo bars but i too get build up after a few uses so that's why i alternate with the lush bars. In the beginning i wasn't using enough then i was told to really get a big lather going. No amount of rinsing resolves it. I've kind of just dealt with it because i really love the scents of vicki's bars and i have about 8 of them that I'd really like to use up. It just goes to show that not all products work for everyone.

shampoo in Australia


Introduce Yourself

i remember someone in australia mentioning thursdays plantation tea tree shampoo. also there's a website called weirdsistas. they have a shampoo bar that looks pretty good. they're located in australia. lush shampoo bars are good and sold in australia. you could always just go with dr. bronners if you don't have a hard water issue. i believe they're sold worldwide.

moisturizing/conditioning dreadlocks


Dread Maintenance

Yeah, I've heard soak n' float is pretty harsh so I've avoided that one. I have a tendency towards a dry flakey scalp no matter what i use but I do find seanik to work quite well for me. I have the jumping juniper one too but i ended up giving it to my daughter because she has an oily scalp and its been working wonder for her.

Really, it's all just trial and error. What works for one person may not work for someone else. Case in point "Dr. Bronners". Experiment a little. I promise your dreads will not fall off if you use the wrong shampoo:)

moisturizing/conditioning dreadlocks


Dread Maintenance

I generally stick with the ones that have the least ingredients. Seanik and jumping juniper. Seanik has sea salt in it. Jumping juniper is great for oily hair/scalp. Squeaky green is nice too but fragrance is listed near the beginning of the ingredients so it could leave a bit more residue than the others. They are sls based and i know some people have an issue with that. Also these aren't made specifically for dreads but with a lot of rinsing i haven't had any issues. I do find that my dreads knot up a ton more when i use these. I alternate though with the dreadlock bars because they add the softness that i like.

Cool, I always used to use Lush bars. Which ones do you like best? I've not used them much since dreading.

moisturizing/conditioning dreadlocks


Dread Maintenance

Thanks for all the new advice guys but this posting is from a year ago and i currently don't have issues with dry locks. I switch off between the dreadlock bars and lush bars and haven't had any problems. I don't do bs deep clean because it makes my scalp itch like mad and make my hair feel like straw. Anytime i feel like I'm getting a bit of a build up then i grab a lush bar and it takes care of it.

Dreadlocks Shampoo Bars


Dread Maintenance

I've tried almost all of them. My personal favorite is the sandalwood/Tonka bean. It leaves my hair cuddly soft and smelling super yummy. I use the tea tree rosemary when i feel like my scalp needs some extra cleaning. The bars get my hair really clean but still knotted. I have about 10 bars in my bathroom and i rotate depending on my mood.
