Shampoo Questions


Dread Products

don't  see ingredients on either 1 but the aloe 1 is like washing with pure conditioners

now dreadlockshampoo.com is beer based too (liquid and bar) with the microfine clays that bind to dirts and oils

the beer from what i understand is why it works so well in hard water beer also makes the hair very healthy

without full ingredients on both cant say more though

the beer 1 iss probly safest...without knowing full details

1 week in, question about scalp


Dread Products

that's entirely typical of salon dreads

1 of 2 things can happen

1: you go back to the salon over and over and that gets worse and worse the tightening by force causes traction alopecia and balding

2; you leave them alone except to wash and separate..in weeks they get looser and less scalp showing..

eventually new growth covers the scalp and they dread on their own

do not retwist!

Dirty Jobs and Washing Frequency


Dread Maintenance

yes its fine i mean ..i have spent weeks in the wilderness, dragging mine in the mud till they were caked to 3 times the normal thickness in mud, then 'washing'  by jumping in a muddy river daily to get off the worse only to be covered again  only a hundred feet down the trail from the river. then didn't get an actual wash till i got home 

and although yea i was muddy for all that time 1 good washing and all was fine

now i was miles from a dirt road,. 25 miles from a paved road and 45 or maybe 60 to anything that resembled a shower.. so i couldn't wash often but even so getting dirty right away again  there was no point in washing till i was home ..

your hairs not going to suffer from a lil dust for a day.. yes you want to wash when you frel you should and no less then weekly ..

but you don't need to overthink it like wash just cause the pollen count was up that day or cause you leaned against a tree or a dirty car door..

rule of thumb .. wash as often as you feel you should.. but if you can't remember if you washed in the  last week its certainly time to wash

sometimes its when you just feel like you really got to wash your hair, sometimes when  "tomorows a better day then today' just cause its more convenient or cause your busy with something ..

nobody should feel like they have to be locked into a schedule but let it be flexible according to how they feel and whats convenient, as long  as your keeping to a "no longer then" sensible schedule .. typically that's weekly

sorry that was long and rambling haha

point is ..if you feel like you want to wash today or tomorrow it doesn't matter .. just being around dust doesn't  matter..it washes out.. and wont hurt ya if its today, tomorrow or the next day.. but .. after 5-7 days of dust or mud you'll be at the  'god i wish i could wash my dreads today" stage and that's really the limit

it depends on the  degree of dustiness too ..if its real heavy and a lot.. scrub it away!

1 day either way isn't going to make much difference .. just i know with winter approaching you don't want to be cold and damp all the time

ok lets put it this way.. if you got dusty today and will be dusty tomorrow .. and the day after that.. wash on Saturday morning.. and if you feel the need any day during the week that feels right

1 month old dreads and bald spot


Help! Save My Dreads

you presectioned in rather big sections in a fairly rigid pattern right? that's what caused that

down the line new dreads will fill in the gaps caused by the pattern and size of the sections

Threw out my comb today!


Introduce Yourself

yes all hair is so if you must use use sparingly

if you have hard water don't use bronners!

you can get teatree bronners

or lavanders anti mildew

www.dreadlockshampoo.com teatree rosemary is awesome

given your length id switch back and forth between liquid and bar..after using the liquid you'll have to separate lots more (it will dread faster or over dread... so switching to the bar will keep it manageable then you can balance speed with controllability
