why would you use a cleansing conditioner on hair that you want to knot?
I have tried the new Kiss My Face Peace soap and love it. it has similar ingredients to Dr. B's and lathers less than other shampoos, but smells good and cleans, doesn't leave a 'coating' on hair.
Never attached pics before so sorry if it's huge! I'm a bit nervous about the bleach damaging them too but I make sure they're rinsed very thoroughly. On the downside it does make them quite dry for a week or so after, can you recommend anything to soften them up a bit? If you fancy lighter dreads you could try lemon juice? I know it works for "normal" hair so I don't see why it wouldn't for dreads!
i guess this discussion isn't over since my forum post... http://www.dreadlockssite.com/forum/topics/i-dont-get-it
