Had my dreads for about a month now and I was advised that until I could get my hands on some proper dread shampoo (I've ordered Dollylocks), that Faith In Nature would be okay. I wanted the tea tree one but my health shop only stocked the blueberry one. These are the ingredients:
Aqua (Water), Ammonium laureth sulfate, Maris sal (Sea salt), Cocamidopropyl betaine, Polysorbate 20, Vaccinium angustifolium (blueberry) fruit extract, Glycerin, Parfum (Fragrance), Anthocyanins, Sodium benzoate, Potassium sorbate, Citric acid.
Obviously this isn't permanent but are there any ingredients that seem harmful? Luckily I'm only a month in and my t&r sections are pretty loose so rinsing hasn't been too bad. I think the sea salt though is causing the back dreads (older ones) to lock faster, my hair is super knotty after a wash and some of them are knotting towards the roots.
look good but is left pic after the thick ones were reduced in size or before the sections in left pic do look big
lazy is very respectful ,, theres been a couple times he wasnt 100% accurate, but then again ive made some mistakes in recomendations too.
so u picked 2 of the only ones that really can be trusted
which means you are off to tye best start opossible
Hey guys. I'm 24 and from the UK. I've wanted dreads since I was a teen but always got told not to (because of misconceptions) but I've finally decided to start the journey and I'm so excited.
I started with loose t&r on the bottom layer about a month ago, but gave in and did my whole head 2 weeks ago. Other than washing and separating I am letting them be and do their own thing. A couple of sections I realised were too big and had to be combed out and split. They look braided and messy right now but I've read that eventually goes away.
I've been using this site and LazyDreads as inspiration. Any advice would be great ✌
