Very simple  one but I find it useful" : I pour to a small plastic bottle (half liter), the desired amount of shampoo,

then add worm water and shake it. Effective for me, and prevents large amount of shampoo (as I used to do in the past, with my curly hair.

When I use liquid shampoo I've started out bent over so all my locks fall forwards and then put a tiny bit into the roots at the back of my head, then flip over a few locks and put a tiny bit of shampoo in the roots there, and so on and so forth, until the shampoo's in tiny bits all over my roots, then I massage into a good lather that I squeeze into the locks themselves. 

When I've had a shampoo that's more viscous I've actually done what you're describing and watered it down into a squeeze bottle before I've done the same thing as above.

I don't go through a lot of shampoo, needless to say. 

Hi Hans,

thanks.

are there non-liquid shampoos? I use herbal- Nettle Shampoo+ Rosemary. BTW- i am not sure whether to apply Coconut oil before/after shampooing.  my hair is dry.

 

yep there are

Just got some of them dreadlock shampoo bars that smell so awesome that puppy wants to eat them!

:-) I assume it's impossible to get here.

i just did some coconut oil on mine yesterday. my tips were getting very brittle. i only used a very small amount on each one and left it in after my wash. so far so good. it seems to have soaked in and my tips feel better. good tip about the bottle. i usually start out with most of mine pinned on top of my head. i wash the bottom few, then let down a few more and do them. in sections if you will. 

washed my hair yesterday - but got the  c. oil  a few hours later. worth a try to use some now.

 do you wash them at the sink/basin? I prefer the bath; latgering 2-3 times.
