Just looked into the ingredients. The Glycerin, and the petrolatum are not good for locks. Glycerin is fat, and will leave a nasty residue over time. And petrolatum is derived from petroleum. It's like petroleum jelly. It's very slick and may delay progress while leaving more residue. It is also extremelyflammable. It's likeParaffin. People use that to start camp fires. It also burns longer and hotter than wax does. So you might want to look into another soap, or steer clear of open flames like bon fires or candles. Anything made from petroleum is a hydrocarbon, and does not wash out in water. Your hair might be nice and shiny after you wash, but that is because this product is still in your hair making it feel conditioned.

Yardley London also uses EDTA, which is VERY hazardous to your health. It was approved for use in many cosmetics, but that doesn't stop it from being dangerous.

I'm not sure which scent you're using. Not all of them have the Petrolatum, but all the ones I see use glycerin and EDTA

That's good. Most soaps do leave a residue, but if that one works for you, then great. It's hard to find dreadlock friendly soaps. I know of 2 companies, but this brings it up to 3.

Welcome. What kind of organic bar soap are you using? Just because it's organic doesn't mean that it is dreadlock-friendly. It may still leave residue

Again, I'm glad you dropped the crochet hook (as per your discussion post.) Check out the dreaducation link at the top of the page for more information on methods, what to expect from each, and maintenance and welcome to the site!
