Hair at nape of neck won't dread.


General Questions

that's funny..the hair at the nape of my neck was what dreaded first! lol but the rest sounds the same..around my ears and face is what's taking the longest to lock up..i'm going all natural though...but the back of my neck is where my most mature dreadies are..x]

interesting and good to know, thanks again! ^-^

dr. woods is a castile soap like bronners. if you have hard water than your probably not going to want to use it since you won't be able to completely rinse it out. vitamin e has sudsing capabilities so thats probably why that added it to the soap. large amounts of vitamin e are actually drying.

Katie Kendall said:

ooo, that shampoo looks nice..i just worry if the vitamin e would make my hair too soft..? do you have a list of the other ingredients?

Whatever you do is your choice. I used to add some tea tree oil to peppermint flavored Dr Bronners. And when I could not afford that I used Dr. Woods Peppermint castille shampoo with the same ingredients(as Dr. Bronners peppermint soap) for like

8 dollars for a 32 ounce bottle.

I got it that cheap at a wholesale store in Queens, NY. You can find it for a few dollars more online:

thank you so much! that was all really helpful..i have pretty hard water at my house, so i'm always trying to hear other peoples experiences with the same problem..but yeah, my dreads are far from mature..i'm only a month, maybe two, into letting them form on their own..and while they're much further along than i ever would have expected, they still have a long way to go...i'll most likely just stick with using my black soap and doing a baking soda rinse every now and then..

Heather said:

the tea tree shampoo sounds nice. it hasSodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate andDisodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate which are both mild coconut derived cleansing agents. it does have aloe high on the list which i try to avoid because it makes my hair too soft. i'd be interested to see how well it works in hard water.

the shampoo bar might be good for someone with really mature dreadlocks. the shea butter could possibly leave residue though. also its a palm oil based soap and i try to stay away from palm oil products because ofdeforestation issues.

I liked this one:

The choice is yours. I would rather just make it myself. You are welcome to check out my oil. I sell it at cost so that everyone can utilize the beauty of ingredients that come from mother nature.

Ok..I've been using, and will probably continue to use, 100% natural black soap on my hair/dreadies..but I keep my eye out for shampoos that would work..Stumbled upon a site, kind of expensive, but the stuff looks decent...here are three things i was looking at:

http://www.ethicalocean.com/product/shampoo-bar

http://www.ethicalocean.com/product/flame-forest-oil

http://www.ethicalocean.com/product/peppermint-tea-tree-shampoo

what do you guys think..?

[that second one i was looking at because i tend to have dandruff]

A question


General Questions

i consider just letting them go as being natural...i like the term natural surrender for the ones that started with a method and then surrendered to going natural..
i, for one, wanted to start with t&r and then surrender to nature..but i combed them out because i wasn't happy with them...after a few months i just quit brushing and conditioning and am only washing with black soap..the dreads that have formed are more beautiful than i ever could have asked for..i'm so amazed at how fast i started to see progress...i do have one t&r dreadie in the very front, just for comparison's sake to see how different it looks from the others when mature...=]
