hello dreddies!


Introduce Yourself

Hey good luck on your dready journey :) for baking soda I just add a tablespoon or two into the bottom of a plastic cup fill it up with water and tip it over my hair. Then leave for 5 mins and rinse. I add salt in sometimes, prob the same amount as the baking soda. An apple cider vinegar rinse is helpful after to. Just a capful in the bottom of a cup filled up with water as a final rinse :)

Hey thanks for the link I will check it out. I've found some on eBay that's fair trade and says it authentic. You never know though. how often do you use it on your dreads? I'm stil on 2 and a half weeks into naturals so I don't fancy conditioning my hair to much as it's knotting up lovely. :)

i love AFB and have used it for years. i use it as my only soap {besides bronners lavender for nighttime bathes}. I get it in block form, but you can always just put it in a container and add water and that makes a liquid. I don't use it on my dreads often--i just use ACV rinse {no BS for me either}, but when I do use it on my dreads it is fine. just be careful--most ABS isn't true ABS. I get mine from here--http://www.agbangakarite.com/

Lush so have some amazing products. If you have never tried Olive branch shower gel and get a chance to do! Smells divine :)

I went to the Lush store in Chicago about a month ago, and yes, their products have at least a trace of SLS in them. Also, the one shampoo bar that *doesn't* have SLS and I was considering buying is loaded with coconut oil, which is fine but not real great for dreads. I was also disappointed because I went there with the full intention of buying their henna but they told me it will NOT cover grey hair( I have several throughout). I love Lush and their products and mission are outstanding,though--so I'm not knocking it at all.

It is yes, they have some really nice shampoo bars but last time I checked they had SLS in. I will recheck actually as that was a few years ago.

Thanks for reply :) I'd love to try maylees nag champa its just that i'm in the UK so its 8 pound just forshipping which is a bit out of my price range at the moment. I basically have an option of Dr Bronners, Knotty boy, Dreadhead or African black soap. I have been using Baking soda and ACV but would like a bit of shampoo to use in between. Lou x

Hey :) I've pulled upsome old posts up about African black soap but I'm finding lots of different answers so I thought it's best just to ask. Is it ok to use in caucasian hair? I was thinking about getting a bar but apprently it comes in liquid form aswell. If I do buy a bar do I need to just rub it on like a shampoo bar or dilute it in some water until it turns to liquid. All help appreciated. Lou :) xx

Hey and welcome :). I wouldn't curb the urge to headbang. I really don't think it will hurt them. I love headbanging and it hasn't hurt mine, they are knotting up fast :) Lou x
