That is nice to hear! I'm also from europe and have the same problem with the high shipping costs for Vicky's shampoos. Shipping doubles the price of the order and that is way too much for me, too.

What shampoo are you using if you don't mind me asking?

I am using Dr. Bronners Teatree bars for almost a year now and I'm pretty happy with it. Before i have tried out a lot of shampoos with not good results (Baking Soda/ ACV, Bronners liquid, Soap from Marseille etc.) I live in an area with medium to soft water, but it seemed not to be soft enough for the liquid bronners. The bars work really great for me and they are easy to find in stores. Should be no big deal to get them as well in the UK.

FemalePheromones: Everything seems to be going alright for now though. Definitely no residue so far.

itchy scalp and dandruff


Dread Maintenance

cold rinses are very good for the scalp. After shampooing i rinse with cold water, it closes the pores and your hair gets less oily.

No problems with itching or dandruff at all after changing my washing routine. In winter i wash once a week, in summer twice.

Dollylocks shampoo bar


Dread Maintenance

☮ soaring eagle ॐ:

are you ordering bar or liquid are you washing with hot or cold water

Well I'm ordering liquid because a lot of my hair is still undreaded, as for water temperature I'm usually washing with something in between, lukewarm water I'd say. 

I used to wash my hair with bars since month 4 of my journey and never hat a problem with that. Maybe the dreading would have been a little faster with liquid shampoo, but i did'nt care about time. No sections have been falling apart because of using bars, so i went on and i am still happy with it after almost 2 years. I think most important is to find something residue free no matter if bar or liquid shampoo.

Question about drying


Dreading Methods

Daniel2:

I usually air dry mine. I do squeeze them to get all that water soaked up. Sometimes when I'm going out I do use a towel to squeeze them. What's this micro towel I hear about though? Is it like the one's you see at walmart or something, or a specific one? 

Microfibre towels are normally for travelling or hiking with a backpack. They are super small when packed and dry super fast when wet. I bought mine in an outdoor shop for hiking and rockclimbing. Maybe you can get them at walmart, i don't know... The pros for using a micro fibre towell is that you don't get lint into your dreads while drying them. It works really good!

How much will my hair shrink?


General Questions

☮ soaring eagle ॐ:

mine i started short, they now are  almost twice my body length. 

longer hair often shrinks more but dreads faster. after 1 year its shrunk as much as it can, and from there grows and grows and grows.

heres something to look forward to.

if you haven't cut in say 7 years, your at your max length possible (every hair is shed every 7 years) so it will never get longer then it grows in 7 years..unless.. those shed hairs are locked in dreads. then  in 14 years its 2 times that length  28 years 4 times..    one day you'll think wait how is my dread on the other side of the room, did it break off? and realize no, it just grew that long.

very interesting! So i guess it will take at least 15 or 20 years till dreads will get close to touch the floor? Will weight be a problem at certain points of the growth? Do people trim their dreads at a certain point because they have become to heavy?

How much will my hair shrink?


General Questions

There a a few people on the natural dreadlocks group on facebook, their hair did'nt shrink at all while forming natural dreads. But i think most of the people's hair will shrink a certain length. I started mine short two years ago and they did not shrink, but did not grow eather, so kind of a shrinkage, too. But they grow now a lot and they will grow forever if i let them... And your lenghts isn't gone, it's just not visible for quite a while Wink

New Dreads


Help! Save My Dreads

After your hair starts to section itself while leaving it alone, you can split a too big section in 2 or 3, the size you want it and then separate regularly to prevent that they combine again to a big one. In the beginning the sections are so loose that it is very easy to split them.

Question about drying


Dreading Methods

Awaseru: I too squeeze out the water with a microfiber towel. In summer I just washed and went outside, can't do that anymore, my head would freeze of.

Yeah, it is winter over here, too and that sucks! I wash only once a week in winter and twice a week during the warm months
