Shampoos and Soaps ~ Maybe get a list started

Dread Maintenance

Maybe we should have a discussion that has a list of all the shampoos and soaps people use and recommend.

I've been using/trying:

Desert Essence Organics Lemon Tea Tree Shampoo for oily hair.

Kiss My Face Whenever Shampoo

Neutrogena Shampoo Anti-residue formula

Dr. Bonners peppermint soap

I give a thumbs up to all of these except we have hard water so Bonners isn't working so great.

What other soaps and shampoos have you used?

Dread Maintenance

I have this 'messy, pre-dready, knotty' thing going on here and was wondering what I should do with it. It's now starting to stick straight out.

Thanks in advance.

Hi There!

Introduce Yourself

Hey there, like a lot of you, I was ready to buy the DHHQ kit and go for it.

And like all of you THANK GOD I didn't.

My son, altho he is mortified by his mother getting dreads, sectioned my hair and i twist & rip, put rubberbands in the ends and palm rolled every day once or twice.

I wash every third day.

beginning of week 3 i took bands out and left them alone.

I tried the BS & ACV wash.

Didn't like it as well as Dr. Bonners but it cleaned them. They are started to come out a bit at the ends and at the scalp but i have no worries because you all said it would happen.

It is killing me not to touch them..... but I'm trying.

All my family and my church friends think I'm nuts and I have already heard every negative comment there is.

[camera phone does weird things to my photos when i upload them]

Iwantto thank all of you for the advice and information!!!
