Lockin Up Liquid Dreadlocks Shampoo Nag Champa

$15.00

This liquid shampoo doesn't lather as readily as the bar shampoos. What I do is I wet my hair thoroughly, and then work a small dime-sized dollop into my scalp and rinse. Then I repeat the process, with a little more shampoo, and the lather that results is a lot nicer.

The first time I used this shampoo, my dreads were noticeably more locked-up, but they also got a lot softer. This shouldn't be a problem, since it won't prevent them from locking because they didn't get silky/conditioned, but the second and third times I used this shampoo, I noticed that my dreads were also starting to puff out and frizz more, so they look less locked-up. (I wash and separate about once every four days.) For new dreads, though, this is definitely better than the bars, because all my dreads are still intact. The bars were really great, but for some reason they completely undid some of my dreads and I didn't see much progress with the ones that stayed in.

I've also noticed that the liquid shampoo is a lot gentler than the bars, without losing any cleaning power. Whenever I wash my hair, some of the product I'm using will always get on my face. The bars would make my forehead sting and feel kind of stretched and dry, but the liquid is really pleasant. I even got some in my eye the other day, and although it didn't feel good, it was more of a minor irritation that went away after a few blinks rather than a painful experience that made me scream.

The nag champa smells fantastic. I'm ordering the patchouli next, although I'm a little scared, since I don't know what patchouli smells like and I've heard some bad things.
