I moisturize with my scalps natural oils, or water? I'm not one to follow hygienically elaborate practices so I simply wash my hair with the dreadlockshampoo bar and maybe do a follow up rinse with some diluted essential oils. Good ways to naturally moisturize your hair however seem to be plentiful. Drinking plenty of water will hydrate your hairs from the inside out. You can also spray water on them and then use oils to seal the moisture in. Honestly though, how moist my hair is never crosses my mind :P
I've used mango and lime shampoo before, but stopped once I found out there was sodium lauryl sulfate in it. I'd watch out with that mango and lime stuff, that company is not trustworthy and will put some bad stuff in their products.
Your moisturizer reportedly used to contain: Cactus blend extract, cactus blossom, cactus seed extract, cactus root extract, cactus flower oil, carrot oil, tea tree oil, shea butter, aloe, jojoba oil, essence of lime, essence of mango, methylparaben and fragrance.Now, here's the ingredients from the new formula: Deionized water, mineral oil, gylcerin, glycol disterate, polyquaternium 37, propylene glycol, diazolydiniyl urea, methylparaben, propylparaben, fragrance.
Even in the original formula, they included methylparaben which is a preservative. Though it's relatively safe ,studies indicate that methylparaben applied on the skin may react with UV light, leading to increased skin aging and DNA damage. Just keep it natty yo!
bekieve it or not thats how most that go to salons believe it should look they call it tidy or fresh
its not untill it gets to this stage that they worry]

salons make u believe that only this is appropriar-te and if u have hair between dreads its dirty and nasty
they use shame tactics to take your money and destroy your hair and scalp
those dreads will get thinner and thinner the scalp wider and wider till dreads fall off and shes bald
