Conditioning.

Should I be conditioning my dreads? I've only had them for 8 days.

its good for removing existing residues i sometimes recomend it as a dread prep to remove conditioners
i wouldnt use it otherwise personally
id try the baking soda
i think it will be good for me to use at least for a little while then. i had to soak my hair in a couple bottles of conditioner before i could brush it out to do my sections. i've used the neutrogena about three of four times now. i'll probably keep using it until i'm done making my dreads. that should be in maybe two more washings, then when i'm done do the baking soda... you think that will be ok?
Start with baking soda washings. The Neutrogena "Anti-Residue" shampoo has a residue of it's own.

If you have washed your hair with it more than once a week, you have used it too much. Neutrogena themselves recommend using it once a week.
my sister uses this stuff, so there's a bottle of it in the shower, but i haven't tried it in my dreads.

I think you should be safe with using just non-residue shampoo. "non-residue" means that it will not stack any residue on top of what is already there. this is labelled as "anti-residue," which implies that it will remove such existing residue. as long as you dont introduce any residues, there's no need to remove them.

that said, if you like the way it makes your hair feel, keep using it. this shampoo is rather expensive though. maybe use it every 3 or 4 washings
You could maybe use it every once in a while. Like a deep clean. But I wouldn't use it as a regular washing shampoo
i dunno, that bottle was like 4 or 5 bucks at target. it's not worth it. the baking soda wash is so much more amazing. this stuff is ok, but really does leave an obvious residue compared to the baking soda. i'm not using it on my dreads anymore. my son is finishing the bottle. haha

It depends if you want chemicals and petroleum (BP oil) products in your dreads or on your body.

I personally prefer no chemicals or crude oil but to each their own.
