Shampoos and Soaps ~ Maybe get a list started


Dread Maintenance

i used to use conditioner but i never really had to. i could do just shampoo and it would be fine. i don't even own a brush. lol. thats how soft it is. i'm trying to find a shampoo that will clean my hair but still leave it knotty. kind of hard to find. i like this post though because i'm always curious what others are using and getting results with.

Shampoos and Soaps ~ Maybe get a list started


Dread Maintenance

i feel like i've tried them all because our hard water makes it so hard to get even brushable hair clean.

here's my list:

*dr. bronners - bar & liquid (leaves a residue no mater how much i dilute it)

*prell (smells like floor cleaner and makes my hair super soft)

*neutrogena anti-residue shampoo (doesn't clean my hair very well and it has a weird scent)

*giovanni's tea tree triple treat shampoo (really nice and leaves my hair clean but super soft. big no no.)

*kiss my face whenever shampoo (love this shampoo but again i'm left with super soft hair)

*desert essence organics lemon tea tree shampoo (like this one alot. tends to dry out my scalp a bit though so i'm saving it for summer time use)

*fantasia 100% pure tea shampoo (wonderful shampoo that i'm currently using. removes all residue but doesn't leave my hair super soft or feeling like straw. i purchased it on amazon)

*bs/acv (i can't use acv at all right now because it softens my hair too much but i still play around a bit with the baking soda because it does help my sections separate and hold together)

*sea salt (okay, i'm not sure if it's just me but my hair feels softer after doing a sea salt spray. weird)

*maylees dreadlock shampoo bars (leaves me with a waxy residue. i use them on my body instead. love the nag champa!)

*natures gate tea trea shampoo (meh. it just okay. plus it has sls so i'd rather avoid it anyway)

wow. i sound like a total product whore. lol:)

Surviving the "firsts"...


General Talk

unfortunately, people don't always have filters that would keep them from saying things they shouldn't. since i'm doing my dreads the natural way it's a lot easier to hide whats going on with my hair just by wearing a scarf or hat. i still have a bunch of unknotted hair. i have a friend (and i use that word loosely) that i still haven't told about my hair journey. she lives a few hours away so i rarely see her but we talk on the phone regularly. she's very close minded. i think she was born with a silver spoon up her butt. lol:) anyway, i know exactly how she'll act and she won't be nice about it. i know she will see my hair at some point in time but i'm hoping it will be when they're mature dreads and i can feel proud of them.

Another fricken dandruff thread


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

i just saw on your profile that you use knotty boy shampoo sometimes. i would stay away from that since a lot of people complain that it makes their dandruff worse.

Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

i think washing more often will definitely help. i've also heard others recommend neutrogena t-gel. i'm one of the lucky ones that doesn't have this problem. sorry:(

DREAD BEADS!


Dread Accessories

so far i can only us small beads so they don't bother me when i sleep and i don't even bother taking them out when i wash. just move them up or down so the hair underneath will dry.

I think dread beads are cool ideas. though the affect my sleeping. and when i go to wqash my hair io have to take them out. they reallly help to round a dread though.
