you might be able to find the ingredients that are in vicki's shampoo (the site I said) individually at an herbal shop near you, then you would be able to make a spritz or even your own shampoo and possibly for even cheaper depending on the cost of said ingredients, just a thought. Other than that, I would use your hair to guide you, but don't sacrifice your dreads due to the price of the shampoo, meaning that, yeah give that product a try but if you notice that its harming the process or you feel excessive weight added to the lock (i.e. residue) then immediately stop using the product because its really not worth the sacrifice for the buildup over a few extra dollars if that makes sense, thats my logic anyways. Id rather sacrifice the extra cash for clean hair than save a few bucks and have residue built up which will inevitably slow down or even halt the dreading process.

FemalePheromones:

I was washing every Sunday but my hair has always been really greasy and I used to have to wash it every day so I washed it again yesterday and now intend to keep doing it every Sunday and Wednesday. I'm using Dreads UK shampoo at the moment. As soon as it runs out I'm gonna switch to something else but just can't bring myself to throw away a nearly full bottle. As for the water it is really hard in my area.

Im actually washing at a somewhat similar rate, I recommend getting a shampoo from Dreadlockshampoo.com because (although im not familiar with that particular company) alot of shampoos that claim they are for dreads and low/no residue actually have many conditioning agents in them that prevent the dreading process, but as for that gunk in your hair (seeing as that you havn't used wax) its possible that its a buildup of the shampoo you're currently using  because another downside to A LOT of shampoos that claim to be for dreadlocks and low/no residue don't wash out completely when using hard water. The shampoos I reccomended on that website have a beer base and are made from distilled water and other natural ingredients that allow it to work in all water types, it really really really is amazing stuff and it smells fantastic too. Its also all natural, not animal tested, no palm oils, etc. The bars on there are for more mature dreads I hear, but alot of their liquid shampoos smell like somthing straight out of a holistic or hippie shop its really great stuff and will help your hair lock in no time. Also, the water in my area is incredibly hard as well and I was having a very similar problem as you where my hair just did not want to lock, despite using a dreadlock shampoo and as soon as I switched to those shampoos I saw the difference after one wash, because what I thought was my hair dreading was really just the product building up which further prevents dreading

alot of people will try to push you away from dreading, just because they dont completely understand how it works themselves. Theres nothing wrong with that, just dont let their discouragement or opinions get to what you yourself values. what are you washing with, how are you washing etc? Is your water hard or soft? All these things can play a role in the dreading process

itchy scalp and dandruff


Dread Maintenance

I would grab the rosemary + teatree shampoo off that website like SE said and like dreadstpauli said use cold water at the end of your wash and when your using the shampoo dig your nails into your scalp to get rid of all the dead skin and dirt

Would dreadlocks be a good idea?If so what style would be most appropriate?


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

You gotta go into it with the right mindset in my opinion, like anything. I highly suggest the neglect method because when theyre mature you'll appreciate them more because they'll be unique to you. Btw, you should get some of the shampoo from vicki's  at www.dreadlockshampoo.com its the best products you can find for dreads imo, and everything she makes smells amazing
