do you feel oily or sticky after washing if so yea do a residue removal then use www.dreadlockshampoo.com wich is made for hard water
Hi. I use dreadlockshampoo from Bucks County Soap, in the USA. I don't know about Australian made dread shampoo, I know there are some, but since finding this one and it works so goo, I am not trying anything else. It is an awesome shampoo, I have no scalp issues at all anymore, a normal scalp. Vicki, she makes the soap, is great to deal with. She makes liquid and bar shampoo, I use both, but mostly bar shampoo at the moment. I tried baking soda wash with essential oils, I didn't work for me, my scalp became itchy and dandruffy. I recommend Vicki's shampoo, that is all you need, it has everything in it for healthy hair and scalp. I have used the Sandalwood and Tonka bean, Nag Champa and Dragons Blood, they are all excellent. if there is anything else i can help with, please ask. I have a nag champa bar in the cupboard, so if $ is an issue, I could send it to you, I would just want to cover my cost is all. Peace and blessings.
Hi Kato, you started your dread journey November 2011, so by now it is best that you wash once a week. The 2-3 days is for the beginning months of the journey, and then you slowly go to every 4, then 5, then 6, then once a week. Were you using the right ratio? 1/2 cup BS to 5 cups water...ACV 1-2 capfuls to 5 cups water.........Finishing off your dread wash with cold water, as cold as you can take helps many people with dry scalp. I believe you have dry scalp now because you are washing too often with the BS at this stage. Use the BS wash ACV rinse once a week only and use water only if you want to wet it inbetween. This should solve your problem. There is a member here also from Australia, Tim-his profile pic has him holding a banjo & he is wearing a red shirt (there are a few Tims on here). Ask him what he uses as he has the same type of water as you would, also, he may know where to purchase a good dread shampoo in Australia. Good luck, let us know how it goes when you get your scalp all fixed...But yeah, contact Tim for help, he is a great soul.....Peace
