    My hair is still really greasy even after washing my hair with dr. bronners since the begining of april. The roots are the greasist. Ive tried the spraying my hair with lemon juice and salt but that just seemed to damage my hair.

    A thought ive had is that maybe it isnt grease but its residue from the shampoo. But i usually spend like 5 minutes rinsing my hair after i shampoo.

    any suggestions?

    Also i know dreads take patientice but i havent had any knots other than when i did some twisting and rip and most of those fell out. My hair is also just clumping up but thats just from my hair being greasy right not it starting to knot? So do i just need to keep waiting or what?

    no, I know exactly what you're talking about.

    Do you dilute? You need to dilute Dr. Bronners...or else it'll gunk up on your scalp and in your hair. Especially if you have shitty water pressure or hard water.

    no i havent been doing that, should i just put a couple of drops in a cup or something?
     
  5. ok, its definitly cause your using it strait, you really need to dilute it quite alot. i do like 12 parts water to one part bronners.

    Yeah. I figured that out the hard way too.
    Ya' gotta dilute it a LOT.

    It even took a few more washings before all the residue was completely gone. Get in there deep, use your nails on your scalp to get off the residual crap - that helped me a lot.

    is this with the liquid soap? or are you meant to dilute the bar stuff too? I seem to be having the same problem, using the peppermint bar soap...

    ya its with liquid soap
     
  10. hmm... how do you use the bar? do you rub it directly on your scalp? i lather my hands up and then rub them in my hair.

    yeah, rubbing anything directly at full strength on your dreads isn't good...

    I chopped the bar up into a billion tiny pieces with a swiss army knife... astonishingly, one piece lasts three or four washes... just lather it up in my hands and rub it into the hair. pretty cool :)
