I used faith in nature yesterday, usually it dries my hair out unless I condition. Yesterday it left it fluffy and soft ☆slaps forehead☆ haha

Borax is no longer available on the uk market due to its mild toxicity... even with a the 'borax sustiutate' it's adviseable it doesn't come in contact the with you skin. I believe it is suggested that borates in themselves have an ability to leave leave a residue still as borates are not entirely water soluble..

Bronners- I've been reading mixed reviews about using it on dreads  utility if you have to then heavily dilute...

I think the only way to over come residue build up due to hard water is periodic Apple Cider Vinegar Rinses. But I am lucky living in the South West as the water is soft here...

Yeah that ingredients mix doesn't look so great now looking closer at...

Aqua- Water, 

Ammonium Lauryl Sulphate - (an ALS not an SLS or SLES technically, I gues this is how they can market it as containing 'No SLS/SLES or parabens'...??? Does it make it any better than them... my thinking is perhaps no...

Cocamidopropyl Beltane - derive/ originates from coconuts. Deemed 'safe' could be considered sidereal natural, known to cause irritation...

Coconut Diethanolamide - Coconut once more, used to make the product foam, diethanolamine is the stabaliser.. in some can cause irritation.

Polyquaternium-7 - this is how theyou keep frizz to a minimum... possibly linked to demetitis issues...

Silicone Quaternium-22 - used for conditioning purposes, no linked effects yet...

PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Triolate - links to cancer...

Propylene Glycol - toxic effects dependant on grade and level of contact with product... 

Phenoxyethanol - can cause allergic reactions with the skin...

Oh this leaves me no closer on what to wash my hair with????. Haha

I'm UK bound also, new into this journey and have been attempting to look up options when it comes to washing. I'd love to buy from dreadlockshampoo but cannot afford the shipping cost sadly, so am wondering what alternatives I can work with here. I use faith in nature shampoos as a standard so will conline with that and see how it goes :)

Day 1


Introduce Yourself

So this morning I awoke and just new it was time to start this journey...it feels liberating to know I can put down the hair brush and never have to embark on getting a hair cut once more I'm excited to see which direction this organic process may take me... where ever it may lead me and can feel in  your heart it's the right way...

So one day down of no brushing, tangling is commencing ... what's next ...
