So I've decided to wash my hair with Dr.b for the second time...And my hair got sticky and cloudy... I don't know why this happened(we have soft water) but I was totally grossed out and fed up!So I got dressed and went to local professional hair care supply store to grab my favorite clarifying shampoo from pravana...After one wash.... My hair felt no longer sticky, and got its color back! My scalp feels good too!! I think this is what I needed... Deeeeep clarifying shampoo!So I have decided on my hair regimenWhich is:Pravana clarifying shampoo(3x per week)Followed byApple cider vinegar rinse with tea tree oil and rosemary(3x per week)Spray mixture of sea salt, honey, lemon, lavender and chamomile tea few hours before wash.And let it knot up!!!!I'm so happy my hair finally feels 100% residue free and clean.

Valerie: I hope so! :)Heather: Yes, that's the one thing I'm worried about... I think I'll wait till I'm able to buy dreadlock shampoo to color my hair.Leah: I definitely understand :) Dr. Bronner had made my hair cloudy in color, and sticky. So I most likely won't be using that to wash my hair anymore...

I found Dr. bronners over-rated. I used to use the bar soap and found that it left my scalp yucky no mater how long I rinsed my dreads. I'm a strong beleiver in using what works for YOUR dreads and nothing else!!!

glad you found something that works for you. one thing though, if your going to color your hair that clarifying shampoo might strip that new color out really quick:/

Hair color wise, I think I will do copper red, and I'll let my hair grow out and keep my natural hair. So just the tip will be colored :)

Thanks everyone for the suggestions :)I have no money to get dreadlock shampoo right now, sadly... And washing my hair with bs dried out my scalp really bad and made my scalp sore. So I rather not go that route anymore. And it didn't clean off my scalp that well...(I'm very oily on the scalp).So as of now, all I've got right now that hasn't caused me issues was clarifying shampoo.I'm definitely wash my hair less with it. But that's all I have for now.

Oh yes, Dr. B's is a concentrate so it must be diluted for all of it's 18-in-1 uses. :) With shampooing it should be 1 parts Dr. B to 12 parts water.

And you are right about the clarifying shampoo drying out (I just didn't think about it because I used to use clarifying shampoo regularly on my son because he would sweat and his hair was extremely oily and dirty after 1 day of play.)

Also, when I was using a shampoo at the beginning I was diluting it heavily with water so that it was easy in, easy out (this was before I got my Dr. B's in the mail.)

Be careful using the clarifying shampoo 3 times a week. Although Pravana is a great line (and is actually what I use in my salon) I would not recommend using any clarifying shampoo that often. Your scalp will get overly dried out, and your hair just wont that dirty that often because you aren't using any products that can tend to build up. (hairspray, pomades, dust powders, root lifters, etc) You could do the clarifying every other week or even once a month and I'm sure your scalp would be okay.

I have recently started using the dreadlock shampoo lockin up liquid and I love it! I've never used Dr. B's but I have read several times that most people end up having to dilute it.

At the end of the day though you have to do what is right for your own hair. I just hope I could help somewhat. :)

Red would look good on you and I think it would be better to do the color now than later when your locks are thicker.

Do what makes ya feel good :)
