I just decided to start natural dreadlocks, but I dont want to mess up so I don't know if I can use the shampoo I have at home its suave Natural Shampoo, tropical coconut it says it has vitamin E. Because I'm new to this I'm a bit iffy about using it, here's the link http://www.amazon.com/Suave-Naturals-Shampoo-Tropical-Coconut/dp/B0002FCCH2/ref=sr_1_11?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1364470890&sr=1-11&keywords=suave+shampoo
It has all the ingredients in there
I am planning on buying the Locking Up Liquid Dreadlocks Shampoo Dragons Blood. What is all your opinions, should I use that coconut shampoo until i order the Dragons blood one, and is that the best starter shampoo out there?

So today is my third week of my long journey of natural dreads and well, reading a lot and thinking a lot, and just having conversations with friends(notspecificallyabout dreads, but life, faith, religion, spirituality). I finally realized that my dreads will just happen and that time really isrelativeand we all just need to be ourselves and live for what we believe is right. As a Christian I believe my purpose in earth is to glorify God and I want to achieve that through changing the world and making it a better place, and my slowly growing dreads will be part of my journey. We, humans, were made for worship and its something that is inside us all and I read about it today in a book, which i would recommend to anybody, the Explicit Gospel by Matt Chandler. Even though the book is made for Christians who want to keep growing, there are many points that I believe not only Christians would agree on but anybody. Right now I'm just blurting out my mind and I hope everybody feels what I'm saying and maybe it could brighten up somebody's day because I feel and believe that Jesus Christ is with me and that he is there for anybody who accepts him and that even in the toughest of times he is there with you and I. Even if we have discouragement or doubt in our life that discouragement or doubt were made by our own choice and that we can as well choose to keep believing in our faith instead of doubting or choosing joy instead of feeling discouraged. Life is good. I actually just wanted to say that I got a job interview at Subway which is literally in front of where I live and I was worried about my head bcuz its starting to look a bit messy, but the manager likes me and my friends because we go to Subway at least once a week. So yeah hopefully I'll get that job which will help me be able to afford college and that I'll keep strong on my journey and faith, and that even in the worst of moments it will always be better at the end of times. So just wanted to share with you guys, I would really appreciate prayers and just good vibes and I'll try to get photo timeline of my hair. I'll post the first pictures when I hit three months. Peace to all of you.
Really random question for anybody that reads this. I was thinking about mixing some of the lockin up liquids shampoo with some baking soda method wash, just to get a little of that baking soda in there. So my question would be is that gonna be a bad mix or should that be alright?
