Whatever the normal amount of shampoo you would put in your hand, put that same amount in the squirt bottle with water instead. This is if you are using the liquid form of DreadlockShampoo. Then you can concentrate putting it all over your scalp, hairline, earline, neck line etc, you can slowly squirt it all over. For me this works better, then I just gently scrub the scalp with my fingertips....Peace
If you use the DreadlockShampoo bars instead, you can still use this method, just cut a little piece off of the bar and dissolve it in the water. Oh yes, if I have boiled water laying around, then I use it for her shampoos, but it is not a necessary step because they do work fantastic in hard water. I just do it anyways....With the bars you can also just lather up your hands and then gently scrub the scalp, but I think my way ensures it gets all over..

Also, when you say regular amount of soap, you mean what kind of ratio?

If this does not work out, then go back to the dragons blood shampoo (that is the liquid I use too). It was created to work in hard water, all of Vickies shampoos and soaps are one of the few ones that will. I have a squirt bottle that I fill with previously boiled water & add in the regular amount of shampoo, then I squirt this all over my wet scalp. When I rinse it out it runs through my dreads... Peace
