just got some natural soap, ing are: olive oil, palm & coconut oil, glycerine shea nut butter, patchouli,lavender and pine needle oil, cocoa powder and rosemary extract. Will this stuff be safe for my dreads?? Am unable to source any 'dread shampoo' per ce and didn't know if this would do the job? The guy that sold it said it would be fine, But he was the guy selling it lol Any help (as always) will be much appreciated

if you have african hair maybe but theres a lot  lot lot of conditioners in that

dr. bronners is safe for dreads when diluted and the one u found has similar ingredients (oils), so maybe try diluting it some?

well except bronners i s super concentrated this isnt this has shae  and glyceerin bronners dont and bronners doesnt work in hard water!

I make soap, with that many oils, it all depends on his it cold process lye soap? and how old are your dreads? (I bet it smells wonderful.) I've found that olive oil as the largest percentage of oils makes a soap too conditioning for dreads most of the time. A good way for you to make a guess, when you use it on your skin, does it rinse clean or does it leave a filmy feel?


exactly or  if it leaves anything on a glass

bronners rinses super easy for me but i use the www.dreadlockshampoo.fom shampoos which are awesome

ifg u make soaps  do u havbe a shop in our shops yet?

Na, you got a great selection already out here! Fabulous crafty it. I run a small hippie type shop, barely have enough time to keep the family supplied anymore. It would be a terrible thing to make them use 'store bought'!


Thankyou all once again, I tried using some diluted, butmy dreads are still very young ( hardly constitute as dreads lol) Yeah the stuff smells awesome, however it did not have the same effect as when I use S.e's baking powder method which has had excellent effects. Believe this is a bit to oily and has left my hair uber soft and much loser tahn before! I think I may try some of this bronners stuff, thanks once again for the advice. This really is an excellent community! I hope that one day I can contribute too instead of just asking all the questions lol. Much Love! Xx

I guarantee you will be able to help other's with new dreads almost immediately!
