Ok so before growing my dreadlocks I want to clear some doubts. What can I use to clean them? I'm already aware of the baking soda method and the besan method which both seem to be very effective. But, for example, is it ok to wash them with coconut soap? I've got a friend that uses it, but I'm not sure if it's healthy for his dreads. What are the ingredients that my shampoo or soap bar shouldn't have? In my country I don't have access to Dr. Bronner's or dreadheadhq soaps/shampoos, so I want to know some alternatives.
Just so you know, I'm going TnR and my hair isn't african.
