organic shampoo base


Dread Maintenance

yo i got neutral shampoo base. it's like a shampoo but without the usual fragrance nor conditioning agents, or whatever else usually found in there. it's odourless, transparent and not viscous. non residual and organic (has an expiration date lol) . supposed to be mixed with whatever essential oils of your choice. i'm going for that so if anyone here has already done it feel free to share your experience :) the only thing to be wary of is to put just a few drops of oils, otherwise your hair gets too greasy and slower to lock. although i don't know the proportions yet :/ kinda reminds me of how bs+acv damages hair and scalp. bs is very basic while acv is acidic, so are the natural human oils of the scalp. it s like pouring on a surface hot then right after that cold water.also 1 table spoone of bs in a huge quantity of water still makes for a very basic mixture. you ll find more details in the links below if you're interested (posted em before on another thread)

starting journey. 4th week already. hair too short to dread?


Introduce Yourself

Yo so i had an afro before, and it looked like my hair was long enough to dread easily. But now, 4 weeks in, i don't know if it actually dreads. looks way too short since it twists so much. i'd like to post some pics, and hopefully read some of u guys' thoughts about how it is going. imo i don't think i got to the baby dreads stage yet. btw my last haircut was in july 2016. 
so how's it dreading?? 
replies much appreciated :)

Definitely got afro hair. Forgot moisturising was good for that. Thanks for the reminder SE. I ll think about the filter when I get to travel later on. Especially when it is for a lengthy period of time.

Maybe I should also rinse it more thoroughly. Gotta try that too

on second thought, i was right in being spooked of baking soda http://blog.kanelstrand.com/2014/01/baking-soda-destroyed-my-hair.html http://generalhamfannery.blogspot.fr/2014/02/no-feels-only-reals-ph-and-dilution.html i did some pretty hard chemistry too so i kinda trust that. the water in paris has a lot of limestone and whatnot, and i think that s what caused the layers. i ve been here for 3 weeks and i'm going back to my clean water country side town pretty soon. i did have residue that i mistook for dandruff before, but not sticky white layers. i'll use a cleansing shampoo for a little time then go for a dread friendly one when i feel the scalp is clean and dreads are forming

It s the third week since I decided to let my dreads start.
I bought a shampoo bar and it just makes my hair kinda sticky and leaves layers on my scalp
Or so I think...
Here It is. Pic attached
Did I f**k it up?
I'm in Paris so I couldn't buy this site's products..I just went to a shop for afro and dreads and the guy recommended this
What to do? Can't wash it off for sole reason
Baking soda spooks me

Glasses ???


Dread Maintenance

well the only problem i see is that the hair in that area might have a hard time to form up as dreads, with the glasses in and out frequently. it makes sense that in the end if you wear glasses that hair will end up in other free dreads and make them bigger. guess it's all about the personality of your hair, might be a good way to see it :)
