Dollylocks shampoo bar


Dread Maintenance

Dollylocks bars have salt in them. Good for locking up faster, not so fun on scalp. I do think Dollylocks shampoos are good, but I personally have had better results with dreadlockshampoo.com. Dollylocks and dreadlockshampoo are opposite as far as where the salt is. DL is in the bar while DS.com is in the liquid. I didn't like the way my hair smelled 2-3 days after washing with Dollylocks. Now with DS.com, after some time, I wash once a week (every Sunday). This has been very convenient and my scalp has been better and I had some serious scalp issues for a while. It is so hard to figure out what works best for you, just really have to be patient. Patience is the key to healthy dreads. Good luck my friend.

Should I Convert To Another Soap/Method?


Dread Products

Is the detox in liquid or bar? and is it a soaking deep cleanse or just basically washing like shampoo?

Too much sebum/ scalp grease.


Help! Save My Dreads

So this came to me at work today. When you have long unlocked hair, your scalp is producing the amount of oil that it needs. Your scalp slowly adjusts this amount as your hair grows. So when your hair is short it produces however much oil and as it grows it slowly adjusts that amount. 

If you are to lock up naturally or slowly, your scalp oil will adjust slowly to the needs of your hair and scalp naturally. If you are to lock up quickly, like crochet or other quick procedure, your scalp will still produce the same amount of oil as it was unlocked. your scalp will produce that same amount for however long until it finally gets to the proper amount, or until you shave your head because you can't take it anymore. 

So in other words, your scalp is producing the amount of oil it needs for longer unlocked hair and not the amount it needs for locked hair.

This is the thought process I had today. Seems to make sense to me.

Im with soaring on this. LOVE LOVE LOVE dreadlock shampoo bars. just got the herbal one in the mail. first time I've tried it and it smells great as the other ones I've used. I do think there is something good about a deep soaking cleanse though. But if baking soda and ACV is a no go, im wondering what would be a great method for a good deep cleanse?

Help! Save My Dreads

My 2 cents: I had similar issues at the beginning as well. I did not crochet, only light back combing one time. Looking back, I believe it was from using crappy shampoo and hoping to have locs very fast. I tried several types of shampoo at the beginning trying to fix the issue, but nothing seemed to work. Once I found Vicki's shampoo and stopped worrying so much about them, things slowly took a turn for the better. This all didn't happen over night. I started locking going on 4 years now and I would say just in the last 2 years it has been amazing. I had always heard of some going a whole week with out washing and I just couldn't understand that and now I can go a whole week with no problem.

My personal opinion is, you should get one of Vicki's bars, probably the cedar/sage bar, and wash with that every 3 days or so and quit worrying about them so much. The sooner you can forget about dealing with them the better they will take care of themselves. Take it for what its worth, but it worked for me.

I swear, thinking back on it how tough it was for a long time.

Hope this helps and good luck buddy.

Mature dreads - thin at the roots! D:


Introduce Yourself

As i always say, just let them go, they will be fine and work themselves out. Once i finally stopped worrying about everything with my dreads, they seemed to be perfectly fine. They do look fine though, I wouldn't worry about them.

Considering removing dreadlocks


General Talk

Mine shrunk ridiculously too! When I started my hair was as long as my dreads are now and they shrunk up to my ears! Check out my 3 year timeline. It was a tough stage. Be patient and try not to worry about them and let them do their thing and it will all be ok. Stay away from the salon!
