Dreadlocks Shampoo bar (tea tree and rosemary)


Dread Products

Hello everyone, I just would like to give a heads up about the dreadlocks shampoo bar. The bar lathers wonderfully and smells great. There are very few dreadies around here so the smell of rosemary has become a trademark Justin thing to my friends. Unfortunately I have had major flaky scalp issues and, although the bar cleaned out the body of my dreads (a quality not to be ignored), it left my scalp awfully flaky! It was as though my scalp was back to square one. As such I am returning to a mix of peppermint dr bronners, tea tree dr bronners, and lots of rosemary essential oil. I'll use the bar occasionally on the body of my dreads to keep them cleaned out, but that procedure will be followed by the shampoo mix that I had already been using.

Cheers,

~Justin

EDIT

Hey everyone, Sorry to resurrect the dead, but I wanted to update this thread with my shampoo bar experience.

I kept on using the bar, and things began to even out, especially after I began to use cold water to wash my hair. My head was always a little itchy and flaky six hours after washing though. This past week (after looking up some advice on the forums) I began to wash my hair with very hot water through the entire washing process, rubbing the soap in with my palms. After all the soap was out I began rinsing my hair with drinking-level-cold water. I have had nearly NO FLAKES. It's wonderful, and the itchies are all but gone as well.

I highly recommend the tea tree and rosemary bar to any and all dread heads. It has fairly much solved my scalp problems, just use hot water to wash/rinse, then rinse again with cold water and I have found this stuff to be great.

Cheers

-Justin

Dreadlockshampoo.com Shampoo Bars

Hello everyone, I'd like to open a discussion on the difference between the shampoo bars (disregarding scent), ie. do they lather differently? have different effects on your scalp? different effects on how knotty your hair is? Is the teatree rosemary bar trading off a benefit in favor of the t/r oils?

If anyone has used multiple types of bars your knowledge would be most welcome. I'm considering using a bar on my head because of flaky scalp (even after teatree bronners, peppermint bronners, rosemary mix), but want to make sure there isn't a particular bar I should get above the others.

Wow that's a pretty rave review you've got there. So your dreads were less than half a year? Amazing :) If people say the bar gets rid of flaky scalp problems I am definitely getting some :)

General Questions

Hi all, I just have a quick question if someone has a minute to talk to me :) I am considering buying the lockin up dreadlocks shampoo and I was wondering if this would be the better choice over the bar as someone who has been dreading 4 months? I'm just curious if this is more for people that have just begun dreading or anyone before the one year mark. I want the shampoo because I heard that it gets scalp flakes out of the body of your dreads and solves flaky scalp quite well. As of now I am using Dr bronners tea trea/peppermint and rosemary oil (all diluted) in my shampoo.

Thanks all you lovely people

~Justin

Caked up flakes?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Well if it's normal I can deal for a while I suppose. How extreme is normal for baby dreads?I have soft water here in the city. I started out with twist and rip (I needed things to get neat-ish fast- business and lab conditions and all)I had heard of rosemary, do you order that online or pick it up at a particular kind of store?

Caked up flakes?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Hey all,I'm new about these parts (hopefully I'll throw a picture out here of my baby dreads soon) but I was wondering if someone could help me out with a bit of a puzzle. I wash my past-my-shoulders length baby dreads with about 1:20 dilution Dr Bronners tea tree every third day but my scalp is putting out these nasty flakes nearly every day and itching like a banshee every couple days or so. There's also caked up areas of flakes as I run my fingers across my scalp. Has anyone else had this problem? Should I change dilutions, soaps, frequency?Thanks for your help~Justin

So what were you using on your flaky scalp before, and did it stay away with the shampoo bar or liquid?

Bar or Liquid Shampoo?


Dread Products

I twist & ripped my hair. I've only had my dreads for 3.5 months but the roots are all real tight- some of the roots actually came undone and then re-dreaded already and I have some long loose hair along the edges of my hair line but not too much. would you all recommend the bar? I like the sound of the bar because I've been using peppermint&teatree doctor bronners with rosemary oil and it helped my flaky scalp but didn't completely solve the problem. It sounds like the bar does a better job.
