I have had issues with dreading my hair in the past. I had about 10 inches of long locs, but for some reason they would not form. A year later, I am again on this journey with about 5-6 inches of hair. I went to a local guitar shop and met a guy with awesome dreads. I asked him basic questions about dreads. He told me to not use Dr.Bronners until my dreads have matured. He said to wash my hair as soon as it felt oily or dirty. I looked online and saw that many who have just started their journey are using Dr.B. I wait 3 days to wash my hair, but by the first day I have not washed my hair, it is already oily. Could my oily head have to do with a slow dreading process? Would I have to wash my hair everyday to have nice locs? Which shampoo should I switch to if Dr.B is not the way to go for the first few months?
