Hello,so i have wanted locks for a veryyyyyy long time.i have now started my long journey! my locs were started with a plastic comb and wax,a very dumb and impatient way.but after watchin youtube videos a came to this site and inspired for natural dreads.i have had them since december 8th and they honestly look like natural dreads of people that have had them a few months.all loose and everything.there is wake holding the tips together but not much and all the rubber bands have been out a for a little bit.i want to resort to all natural now if posible.i want my dreads perfect and am very such as types of natural soaps or shampoos to wash my hair,sleeping in bandanas,home made spray such as salt and lemon or anything i could use is asked for.thank you very much and am looking for some great responses!

Wish I could recommend a shampoo to you but I don't use one. Well, not one that many others might suggest. My son has eczema and I bought him a bottle of California Baby tea tree/lavender shampoo/body wash. I use that sometimes... shame on me. lol. It smells lovely, though. Works well. It doesn't strip my hair and my hair doesn't feel oily or sticky after using it and not washing for a few days. I alternate between the CB stuff and the bs/acv rinse when I wash. :)

Sorry, but.... Ew. Lol. Not washing your hair for that long is unhealthy. It needs to be washed often, just not TOO often. :)

You may get lots of different opinions on what people agree with most. Everyone's hair and scalp health is different, and everyone's hair acts differently. What worked for some may not work for others. But there are a few things most people would suggest and agree on. It's all trial and error, though, remember that.

Oh and don't wash too often, try to gradually get to every 4-5 days. Some people can only go 3 days without washing but if your scalp can handle it a week is best. I usually do every 4 days and that's because I play with my hair a lot, even though it's much less than I used to. Once my hair is more matured it will be easier not to mess with it and I am sure I could go a week w/o washing. It's a 50s beauty secret, too, haha. [going a week between washes I mean]

I would recommend some serious stripping to get the wax out. SE has some good suggestions, I have never been steered wrong by him. When you are confident all the wax is out and you are comfortable with officially starting the natural journey, use a shampoo that is non-stripping, or use a baking soda+water/ACV+water rinse. The general recipe is 1 tablespoon of each to every cup of water. Just make sure your hair is rinsed out before switching from the b.s. to the acv. :) I don't know much about anything else. I started "no-pooing" before I decided to let my hair lock up, and it just so happens to be a healthy way of letting your hair do its thing.
