Castile soap?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Thanks SE. They don't but the locking gel does, I didn't realise until after I'd ordered it!

Castile soap?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Thank you for the reply Tim! :)

Ahhh noooo. Castile soap was my last hope at finding an alternative to BS and ACV washes. I am allergic to soy, which rules out products like Dr Bronners, and most other SLS free items - as most organic companies use it in some form because it is cheap and natural. I am UK based, so it is quite hard to find products that are safe to use, work in our water and won't cause build up. Doh!

Haha, thank you. I just sometimes feel like I'm going round in circles :)

Castile soap?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Hi guys, sorry for the surge of messages I've been posting about this lately, but what is everyone's opinion on castile soap as a shampoo base? I have found some very basic, minimalistic shampoo concoctions with this as the main ingredient, but will it cause build up?

EG: Nothing Nasty - Organic tea tree castile soap.

Ingredients: Organic Liquid Castile Soap*, Sea Salt, Tea Tree Essential Oil*

I promise I'll shut up after this!

Thank you so much for your help everyone. I guess the benefit of the shampoo bars is that they won't explode in transit! :)

I didn't know that about castile soaps! Everyone always raves about the Dr Bronners! x

Dreadlock shampoo?


Dread Maintenance

Hi SE, I thought they might be, on closer look I noticed the word "moisturizing" used quite a lot. I am thinking of making my own liquid shampoo instead, with raw coconut/sunflower based castille soap, and essential oils/avocado oil.

Dreadlock shampoo?


Dread Maintenance

Hi Christina :)

Thank you for replying! I've actually been using the Lush squeaky green bar along with the BS, but I've found it makes the dandruff quite bad (eeew). I used to use the Faith in Nature Chocolate shampoo, but I was worried about the ammonium laureth sulphate! It seem to be impossible to avoid in the UK!

Do you find the Faith in Nature good for locking up?
