dandruff shampoo


Introduce Yourself

bs/acv didn't work for me either. it just made my dandruff worse. using dandruff shampoo once won't hurt your hair but over time it will probably leave residue. when you can afford it, dreadlockshampoo liquid or bars work wonderfully. i use the bars and my dandruff is pretty much non existent.

these are my dreads


Introduce Yourself

they look really good! you might want to do a baking soda deep clean though. ivory is known for leaving soap scum. you really don't want that building up in your dreads.

Time span of natural locking?


General Questions

i started to get my first knots around 5 months. at 2 1/2 years my locs are finally mature. it's a long journey but i kind of miss all the crazy knots, loops and bumps that would show up in the beginning. just embrace the process and the end results will be glorious:)

Any regular shampoo users?


Dread Maintenance

i used regular shampoo exclusively for well over the first year of dreading. having really hard water made it impossible to use bs/acv, dr. bronners, etc that other dreadheads were using. in reality almost anything we use to wash our hair will leave some sort of residue. the trick is to find something with the least amount of ingredients and no conditioners or silicones. also make sure you rinse the shampoo out really well. if you tell me which vo5 shampoo your using than i can look up the ingredients. i would suggest getting a natural shampoo instead of vo5. natures gate, kiss my face, and bentley organics makes some nice ones. better yet, order the locking up liquid shampoo from dreadlockshampoo.com. great stuff. i personally use the shampoo bars and will never go back to store bought shampoo.

A strange worry


General Talk

i'm at 2 1/2 years now and most of the craziness has stopped. i do find myself missing the beginning stages. as for the new growth, I've noticed that a lot of it is remaining loose which i kind of like. I'm sure the longer it gets the more likely it is to dread up but for now I'm embracing the wisps of softness :)

Bucks Co Dreadlock Products


Dread Products

the bars actually lather a ton but in hard water you really need to use quite a lot and your hair has to be soaking wet. once i figured out how to make them work for me i will never go back to any other shampoo. oh and goddess is my favorite:)

DANDRUFF!!!


Help! Save My Dreads

bs/acv wrecked my scalp. i tried all the combination of oils and none of it worked. i finally switched to a ph balanced shampoo and my dandruff got better but my scalp would still itch.. i then tried the dreadlock shampoo bars and my dandruff is 99% gone. they really do work. my scalp hasn't been this calm and not itchy in over a year. if your dreads are new then i would bet the locking up liquid shampoo would work just as well. good luck!

Scalp help


Dread Maintenance

bs/acv caused me intense itching and ton of dandruff. switching to a ph balanced shampoo or using the dreadlock shampoo bars is the only thing that got rid of it for me.
