I used Dr bronner's and my hair was soooo greasy afterwards! like it was just unbearable and my hair stank really bad :/ I don't know why, everyone was telling me my hair smelt disgusting. I diluted it 12-1 like you said and washed it out thoroughly. I don't know what else to try cause I really don't wanna mess around with baking soda. anyone know any soaps I can buy on a budget that will get my hair clean without any residue? I'm from the UK so I need something I can buy here. and I don't have a lot of money to spend on soap! thanks for any help.

Baking soda wash... Cheapest and best in my opinion.... Sooooo easy too, only downside is that it takes about 20-30 for the whole process :)Amazon.co.uk u can buy 1kg baking soda for 6 quid or u can go to any super Market get the bicarbonate soda pot from baking isle for about 83p :) then u can just buy 2 little pots of oil from holland and Barrets or amazon again! Get lavender and tea tree to start with... If u like the wash u can then try more :)I used to use dreadheadhq soap but man this is so much better... Uk water tends to be fairly hard water so baking soda one is really good.... If u got questions bout the wash SO many ppl here will help :) hope that helps

i've heard people in the uk mention "simple" soap. not sure what it is but they talk highly of it. also another one called vosene.

I've been using Burts Bees shampoo and it works great. Smells awesome and leaves no residue. Seems to be helping the loose hairs knot up too
