Shampoos and Soaps ~ Maybe get a list started


Dread Maintenance

just wondering. does anyone use dish soap to clean their hair? i saw some natural ones at target today and they don't have any crap in them. i remember when i was a teenager we would use dawn on my hair when hair dye would come out too dark. i remember it stripping the color a bit and making my hair super clean.

Does long hair lock faster?


General Questions

in my case my long, soft, white girl hair is taking FOREVER to knot. lol:) i probably should've cut some length off before starting. oh well.

Burt's Bees Conditioners


Dread Products

i tried the burt bees conditioner when i had brushable hair and it wasn't very conditioning. that might be good though for dreadlocks since you want some softening but not so much that things start to come undone. i don't know how old your dreadlocks are but if they're pretty established then i think you could get away with using any conditioner. does kiss my face make a conditioner that goes with the shampoo your using? a friend of mine has had dreadlocks for 3 years and she will occasionally condition them and she hasn't had any problems. just soft dreadlocks:)

Dread Maintenance

thanks hendrixmama! i think it looks like crap right now. lol:) hopefully someday it will actually resemble dreadlocks.

Thank you Heather! After trying a few different shampoos, I have come to the conclusion that I may have hard water. I am going to test it to find out for sure, but seems like that's my problem, cause I just can't seem to get my hair clean and my scalp feeling and looking ok. Will try the natures gate tea tree kind, I think I just saw that the other day at the store! If anyone else has any recommendations, I would love to hear em!

PS Heather, I think your hair is looking great, I think I'm just a little behind you on the journey!

lol! that should DEFINITELY be the question. i go back and forth between different shampoos. i haven't found the perfect one yet. what works pretty well for me at the moment is neutrogena anti-residue. i wish it didn't smell so bad though. i also like natures gate tea tree shampoo. it's really hard finding something that washes completely clean with hard water but these seem to do pretty well and don't leave my hair super soft.

This question is for those of you with hard water.... What shampoo works best for you?

Very, very slow dreadlock progress.


General Questions

pictures??

i'm on a very slow natural journey also. i started with very soft healthy hair so it's taken some time todevelop hair with more grip to it. i don't have very many knots yet either and i'm almost 7 months.

maybe the shampoo your using has conditioning ingredients? sea salt sprays in between washing and wearing a wool tam to bed every night are some of the things that i do that seem to help. i'm still trying to find the right washing routine too since we have really hard water. other people on here also recommend drying hair with a blow dryer to damage the hair a bit and increase knotting.

My Dreadlock Odyssey - TnR

14 hours?? i would not have the patience for that. it looks good though and i'm sure it will lock up fast since your hair is a bit damaged from the bleaching.

I know everyone has a natural hair part but..


Help! Save My Dreads

i think they're dense because of the crocheting. you could definitely do a conditioning with probably whatever you want to use. at 4 years you don't really need to worry about anything coming apart. i tried to loosen one of my sections with conditioner the other day and it wasn't going anywhere. mine are only 6 months. its really soft now though. lol:)
