Welcome to the community Matt. I see you are getting good use from this site already!....Peace
I usually don't like to push a product, but the stuff from dreadlockshampoo.com is really the best. It works in hard and soft water. And the way they fix their shipping is that you can buy 5-6 bars/bottles and the shipping doesn't go up.
Or, if you have the drive to do it, you can use Dr. B's and distilled water. It can be expensive it you buy it. Or you can make your own. It's not that hard. But the set-up can take a bit of time to build.
There is also the BS/ACV wash. But you'd have to use distilled water for that too
Nah, not pressure. Hard water is water that has a lot of minerals in it. Places near coastlines, mining areas, mountains, etc, tend to have hard water. Soft water has less minerals.
Castile soaps don't rinse out well in hard water and leave residue. I only ask because if you don't wash that often, you may not notice if it is leaving residue yet. It's more apparent when you wash more often
lol. Yeah, it can be a big deal. Out of curiosity, do you have hard or soft water? That can effect how will Dr. B's works.
I hear you. That's why my first set rotted off my head from wax and not washing for 2 months.
My second set was at least wax free, but I still had no one to tell me better, and I palm rolled the first 2 weeks, and it destroyed my roots on 4 of my locks. I interlocked and weakened a number of them in different places. And I tied knots in those weak spots trying to make them stronger, and 2 weeks ago, one finally snapped off at that point. More will come in time.
That's a big reason I try to help. I've made a number of mistakes. So I feel like I know what works better for locks. I'm by no means an expert, but what I can help with, I try to.
welcome but why arent u washiung u should wash 2 or 3 times a week
Welcome. Who told you to wash thatinfrequently? Whoever did boldfaced lied to you. No matter what your hair type, you should never wash less than once a week. 2-3 times a week is best for new locks. Mature locks can handle once a week. Less than that and you are asking for dirt and residue to build up in your hair and weigh it down. If enough oils and residue build up (you won't be able to get it all with just one wash), hair can begin to rot on the inside
