It s the third week since I decided to let my dreads start.
I bought a shampoo bar and it just makes my hair kinda sticky and leaves layers on my scalp
Or so I think...
Here It is. Pic attached
Did I f**k it up?
I'm in Paris so I couldn't buy this site's products..I just went to a shop for afro and dreads and the guy recommended this
What to do? Can't wash it off for sole reason
Baking soda spooks me

I also live in europe and i wash with dr bronners bar soaps. I buy them from the Douglas website, but you can get them through amazon, too.

I is a good shampoo for dreads and i does'nt leave any residue!!! The liquid bronners is only good in soft water, the water type does'nt matter for the bars.

If you want to get rid of that sticky layer fast, i would use baking soda once in a ratio 1:10 (100mg in 1 liter of water) It's no problem to use baking soda only once!

on second thought, i was right in being spooked of baking soda http://blog.kanelstrand.com/2014/01/baking-soda-destroyed-my-hair.html http://generalhamfannery.blogspot.fr/2014/02/no-feels-only-reals-ph-and-dilution.html i did some pretty hard chemistry too so i kinda trust that. the water in paris has a lot of limestone and whatnot, and i think that s what caused the layers. i ve been here for 3 weeks and i'm going back to my clean water country side town pretty soon. i did have residue that i mistook for dandruff before, but not sticky white layers. i'll use a cleansing shampoo for a little time then go for a dread friendly one when i feel the scalp is clean and dreads are forming

if your not African American that's way way too moisturizing

water can suck..a in shower head water filters  ideal  if you travel you take it with you and simply replace whatever shower head your using with the filtered 1

Definitely got afro hair. Forgot moisturising was good for that. Thanks for the reminder SE. I ll think about the filter when I get to travel later on. Especially when it is for a lengthy period of time.

Maybe I should also rinse it more thoroughly. Gotta try that too
