i would recommend washing with a dread shampoo. not just any shampoo though
or especialy not just any bar soap!
and water alones not going to get ya real clean .. you want something natural .. even soap nuts if you want to stay closer to a water only wash
ut dreadlockshampoo.com is most highly recommended around here (you'll see lots of raving going on haha people reallllly like em)
anyways welcome and cant wait to see how the dreads are progressing
