Oily hair


Introduce Yourself

Wash less frequently, the conventional shampoos usually strip the hair of its natural oils, so the scalp overproduces it, jut in case you decide to strip it off again ;)

i used to have oily hair too, and keeping a steady washing routine and dreads itself treated the problem; i now wash every 3-4 days and my hair is rarely oily.

Shampoos and Soaps ~ Maybe get a list started


Dread Maintenance

If you have hard water i would definitely suggest Lush shampoo bars. Just watch out for those with hair detangling effect, the salesperson should know all about it.

But if you don't have hard water i believe better solution is baking soda, since it's all natural and cheaper as well (: good luck!

I need some tips about henna!!


Dreadlock Styles and Dread Styling

I believe henna wouldn't hurt dreadlocks (altough i haven't tried for myself), it might only slow down the natural process of dreading, since i believe it's a bit conditioning.

I would suggest buying natural henna blocks, that most natural stores have. Those don't have any additives, that the pre-made ones may contain. Good luck and keep us updated with the results (:

Shampoos and Soaps ~ Maybe get a list started


Dread Maintenance

I have tried Lush's solid shampoo puck called Squeaky green just a few days ago. We have hard water and i was almost desperately looking for something that wouldn't leave gunky stuff on my scalp and clean it really nice. I've found that in Squeaky green, and it smells really nice and herbaly. Their shampoos are a bit pricey (they vary from 5-8 euros), but the saleswoman have told me that one shampoo puck usually lasts as long as three normal bottles of liquid shampoo, so the price isn't that exaggarated. After one use, one can barely see that it has been used. Though it lathered really nicely.

Which brings me to the one really negative point in deciding to buy this product. It's SLS, sodium laureth sulphate, it's a detergent used for cleaning floor and other surfaces... also put in most shampoos, tooth pastes and other body cosmetics. It is said to cause cancer.

Though i will keep using it, because it makes my scalp really clean and good smelling. At least until i get a water softener.

I'm Confused?


Introduce Yourself

It could be that you're having hard water in your area

testing for hard water?


Dread Maintenance

  • "Take a clean empty plastic bottle having a cap (such as a clean, clear pop bottle);
  • Remove the cap;
  • Open your tap water faucet and fill the bottle with about a half-cup of water (8 to 10 ounces);
  • Add 10 drops of dish washing liquid;
  • Shake well;
  • If the soapy solution foams up quickly you are good and the water is not hard;
  • If it does not foam up but instead creates a milk-curd-like or soapy film on the water surface then the water is likely hard."

I believe this works if your water is really hard. Our water is somewhere in the middle between extremely hard and soft, and as i tried that experiment, the dish washing soap foamed, but not as much as one would expect it to foam.

I hope this was helpful!

Which method should I use?!?!


Dreading Methods

None of the methods will make them look "socially acceptable"/neat, but they aren't supposed to be that way. They should be going wild and mingling with fellow neighbouring hair.

I suggest you to just take it easy and go neglect (:
