Mildew worries, how concerned should i be about dread-rot? and what do you think of Dr. Bronners?
Ok so when i started dreads for the very first time i bought dreadheadhq shampoo, i had to cut my dreads cuz of school, but kept the dreads and put them on a tam to make it look realistic and then used them as extensions when i got them again ... I've said this before, but just recapping, anyway I still had the dreadheadhq shampoo, and i liked it and although i had the dreads for about a year, i still had plenty in there so I've been washing my hair more frequently cuz i wanted to buy some new stuff and since I'm disgusted that DHhq's wax was still in my dreads I decided to buy Dr. Bronners. Unfortunately I still looked at that dreadheadhq.com from time to time for hints (lame- i should stop) and KJC says that all other shampoo's except his leave residue and that can cause mildew, including organic castile soaps. I know its lies that he says wax is good and all, but the things he says about shampoo make sense, cuz you don't really want residues in your hair. I used Dr. Bronners today and i don't feel any residue, except they smell nice, I'm pretty sure that he's full of crap and I'm sure you guys will agree, I just want to hear it from someone who has had dreads for years, say it. I don't want to have mildew ever show up in my hair. My hair takes awhile to dry, even when i blowdry, it still takes a while to get completely dry, no problems yet, I'm just a little concerned. I put just enough Dr. Bronners soap to layer the bottom of a plastic empty ketchup bottle and then put water in the rest and wow!!! it still felt like too much cuz it felt really tingly on the scalp.
