Hi frank hope your journey is going well. I have finally found the patience I need for my journey.
all the best.
read the ingredients in www.dreadlockshampoo.com shampoos the clay is why they clean so amazingly well
Well, after using the clay powder as a rinse for one month now, i am very happy with it! I mix one tablespoon with 1/2 liter of water. I let it rest for 15 min and massage the scalp. After that you have to rinse it out very very good to prevent builtup, because the powder is very fine... You can use an acv rinse once a while to prevent your hair getting too dry, but the powder is ph neutral, so you don't have to do it often. After the test month i washed with baking soda /Acv rinse. There was a little bit of a rest of the brown powder on my head, but not too much i guess. So i think i will keep washing with the natural clay and once a month i will do a baking soda deep cleaning.
After 2 month i quit using Dr. Bronners as a shampoo. Lately my hair felt gross, like waxed after the wash with Dr. Bronners twice a week. Seems that it will not work with the water type at home... As an alternative i have BS/ACV at home, but first i will try out a natural powder from Marocco called "Rhassoul" which is really helpful with having skin issues like neurodematitis or just dry skin. On an other website they use this as a shampoo, too. One part of rhassoul mixed with two parts of water, then massaging the paste to the hair roots and rinsing it out afterwards. Also they use an ACV rinse once a while after the wash... I will try that powder out today and will report back how it worked out for me. In europe we can buy it in drugstores or direct at an arabic store. Its an all natural powder from the ground without any chemical additional. Have a nice week!
i had the same problem with bronners and found the only way to avoid the waxy feel is to use soft bottled water, for me that meant spring water bottled at source in Scotland, a pain but it worked.
it worked out around £1.80 for 5 litres I'd use about 15ltrs to rinse with. As for the Bs/Acv I now only use that once a month as it left my head so dry and sore with regular use.
What I now use and I'm sure I will get some grief is T-gel. I use a teaspoon of it in a 250ml bottle topped up halfway with water then shake,this will last me for 2 washes.
I know it's got some bad things in it but until I find a more natural and cost effective way I think I'm going to have to stick with it.
I know all the usual suspects knotty boy dread head hq and the like try to peddle wax which we all know is bad. I found out the hard way 12 years ago. What I don't know is weather any of their shampoos are any good it would be nice to know.
soaring eagle swears by the dreadlockshampoo that you can find links to on this site but for me yes if I was in the states I'd buy the lot but the shipping to the UK plus import tax makes it out of my reach now due to changes in my life. It's very hard to get good advise for us in Europe. And while on the subject of Europe I am one of those from the UK that doesn't want to leave personally I'd prefer there to be a much more united Europe than the one we have currently.
good luck with your journey.
