This is the ingredients I found on their site for rockinglocks shampoo:


Aqua, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Decyl Glucoside, cocamidopropyl betaine, cocamide DEA, Sodium Chloride, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, methylisothiazolinone, Benzyl Alcohol, Citric Acid

Ingredients of Dreadlockshampoo locking up liquid: : distilled water, decyl glucoside (natural corn oil & natural plant sugar), lauryl glucoside ( natural coconut oil & natural plant sugar), beer, calendula, rosemary & green tea infusion, essential oil, sea salt.

Look at all the technical names in the first one, now look at the names in the second,,,,,you decide

Alcohol dries out the hair, citric acid eats the inner core of the hair slowly over time, that is why lemon juice should not be used.

This is from the web, info on Sodium Laural Sulphate:

Can 16,000 Studies About SLS be Wrong?

According to the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep: Cosmetic Safety Reviews[6] , research studies on SLS have shown links to:

  • Irritation of the skin and eyes
  • Organ toxicity
  • Developmental/reproductive toxicity
  • Neurotoxicity, endocrine disruption, ecotoxicology, and biochemical or cellular changes
  • Possible mutations and cancer

If you visit the SLS page on the Environmental Working Group's (EWG) website[6], you will see a very long list of health concerns and associated research studies. In fact, you will also see their mention of nearly 16,000 studies in the PubMed science library (as well as their link to that list) about the toxicity of this chemical.

There are clearly grounds for concern about using products containing this agent. Yet, skeptics abound who claim that these concerns are overblown and unfounded. It's no wonder that consumers are completely confused about just how much risk this chemical poses.

Since most of the research studies are done on SLS itselfnot on products containing itthe EWG states:

"Actual health risks will vary based on the level of exposure to the ingredient and individual susceptibility."

Many of the studies on laboratory animals have involved applying SLS directly to the eyes of the animals and feeding them straight SLS. As would be expected with ANY chemical, eating it or putting it in your eyes would be bad news!

Even natural substances applied in high concentration (for example, cinnamon oil or oregano oil) can have harmful effects.

But high levels of SLS intake, either orally or through the skin, are not ordinarily experienced in normal cosmetics useit's the gradual, cumulative effects of long-term, repeated exposures that are the real concern. And there is a serious lack of long-term studies on ALL of the chemicals in these productsso we don't really know what the long-term effects are.

It's not just repeated exposure to one chemicalit's the combined effect of thousands of little chemical exposures, day in and day out, that is of concern.

Sorting through the evidence is even more complicated when research findings are exaggerated and misquoted, and then circulated around the Internet as if it were fact.

And the methylisothyazolinone and methylchloroisothyazolinone are EXTREMELY toxic. They are 100% known to cause cancer in multiple organs. The factory workers who produce it are required by the FDA to wear full-body hazmat suits when handling it in the shop.

And coamide DEA has been listed as an IARC group 2 carcinogen, which means it can potentially cause cancer in humans.

Cocamidopropyl betaine is a know allergen, and causes skin irritations
