Have you tried using the bars from Dreadlockshampoo? I'm not sure why, but my progress started speeding up once I started using the bars instead of the liquid. You could at the very least try it. :D My progress has been pretty slow myself, so I understand how that feels.. IT has been almost 2 years now, and my hair looks like some people's who have been locking for only 3 or 4 months... Everyone is different.. But yeah, I recommend trying the bars.. Dragon's Blood is my favorite.. :D (not necessarily just scent wise, but also the way it lathers and washes.)
I think ima try some blue dawn dish soap.. See how that works.. I would generally prefer to use something more natural / a more natural method but I just don't know.. I feel like dawn isn't something that would undo a whole lot of progress, and would do well at getting residue out.
lol.. I sent that reply before I refreshed the page to see you had already made a decision.
Yeah, generally speaking, salons just want money for something you could do yourself. If you want to get locks, twist and rip generally works well.. Natural/neglect is the most simple way to do it though, and it doesn't require much work. If you don't trust your friends to do it (people you know) why would you trust someone you don't even know to do it for you? Unless your friends aren't really into the idea.
Ah.. Yeah.. I was wondering about the patchouli one...

I've heard people say that they've had their hair turn that lighter white color from over using baking soda. For me personally it was really drying and now I'm faithful the dreadlockshampoo too. I have noticed that of all the different scents I've tried that 1 (Patchouli) leaves a build up over time (about a month)...of course it's my favorite. It's sticky for me though and not light in color. I use Pantene Clarifying and I think it works great. Before I found that 1 I was suggested to try the blue Dawn dish soap and that really stripped it...frizzed it and tangled it good too. I wish you luck in getting it out
