What do you wash with?


Introduce Yourself

well, i've tried prell, dr. bronner's (bar and liquid), bs/acv and maylees all of which left waxy or grease residue in my hair. i've also tried lush shampoo bars but i hate all the little pieces of crap it leaves in my hair. right now i'm using fantasia ic 100% pure tea shampoo. works really good at cleaning my hair and scalp. i found it on amazon. i want to try desert essence lemon tea tree organic shampoo. it gets really good reviews online. i'm still in search of something that cleans well, rinses away and doesn't leave my hair soft. my hair is soft enough.

How would i know if something would leave residue in my hair?


Dread Maintenance

oooo....that sounds like a good one. i've yet to find something that really leaves my hair and scalp squeaky clean.

so would've i said:
I just got Kiss My Face Whenever Shampoo in the mail a couple days ago... I don't like the way baking soda/acv makes my scalp feel and it doesn't make me feel clean, and when I used a natural shampoo bar from Burt's Bees, it left residue. But this KMF liquid shampoo... is definitely better than anything I've ever used before having dreads. Highly recommend you check it out: http://kissmyfacewebstore.com/detail/KMF+1101103

Heather-I ordered a couple of the salt/earth bars as well as a few others.I would be happy to send you a chunk( I don't use it often now that my hair has begun to lock.I use a couple of her others.)This way you could try it out to see if it was for you.It is a bit pricey but worth it.Her Sacred Grounds is to die for!I'll friend you and you can give me your address-if you want.

i noticed on your profile that you use salt of the earth soap. what is it and where do you get it? maybe its too drying for your hair (which would be perfect for mine since its too soft). acv is really conditioning. maybe try rinsing with that after you wash.

New to dreadlocks, advice?


Introduce Yourself

pictures? i have thin, fine hair too. its super soft too. backcombing and t&r doesn't stay in my hair. i think the best thing to do is keep your hands off your hair and keep it clean. i'm finally seeing some knotting on the ends of my hair and i'm 4 months in. it's definitely a longer journey for people with our hair type.

separating natural locks


Dread Maintenance

maybe you could separate your dreads to make them not so thick and easier to rinse? i know knottysleeves did some to hers recently. just a thought.

Heather said:
well, if your coming out to cali then your definitely going to need something to wash with because the water here will leave more build up in your hair than any shampoo would. i think the whole build up thing is a little over hyped anyway. maybe a natural shampoo bar or even a dr.bronners bar? at least they're easy to travel with.

Dorothy said:
i wash my hair 1-3 times a week, just water in the shower. the occasional acv/baking soda rinse. but lately ive been trying to soak my dreads once a week with essential oils and vinegar and plain old hot water to really get em clean. they re so thick that i gotta soak and squeeze and repeat process to get inside em. but i only got a month to get them the healthiest i can before i travel. otherwise, id prally be doin a soak 1 every mo. i like bronners but am super paranoid about soap buildup.

Heather said
what do you wash with and how often?s

Dorothy said:
