    Anyone here have dreadlocks and make shampoo bars?

    Have you used any salt base products? You really don't say what it is that you use. I'd be very interested in knowing. How about baking soda?

    Anyone here have dreadlocks and make shampoo bars?

    Salt Soap, Baking Soda, and ACV! Hi! I posted earlier (years ago) about what I wash my dreads with. They are no longer babies, about 2 1/2 years old and for the most part they are behaving quite well. I've never cut open one of my dreads to check for build up of any kind, but I'm pretty sure...

    Disadvantages of using too much cocoa butter?

    My brother carried Cocoa Butter in his tanker....he cleaned out the 'pipes' of left over and provided me with a bunch of 'free' cocoa butter. :p I want to use a large portion of this cocoa butter and get some soap made so I want to make a 'luxury cocoa butter bar' using 50% CB. Other than...

    Don't touch my junk.

    Oh, Ian, how I have missed you. I'll never forget how you dogged my Shaggy....said he was mainstream. :crazy: How long ago did you have dreads?

    Anyone here have dreadlocks and make shampoo bars?

    Absolutely!! I've been there and done that! I'm a white women with thick hair. I currently use my salt bar made with coconut milk and rinse with vinegar and water mix. I often wonder if there isn't something better. Oh, and my dreads are only 8 months new..... :thumbup:

    Dreadlock Wax

    I was wondering if anyone here has any experience or ideas when it comes to making dreadlock wax. I have 'baby' dreads...they are only a little over 3 months old....not locking yet (well, in spots they are). I want to make a wax for rolling them after they are clean and dry. I have plenty of...

    Coconut Milk/Lye

    Well, I doubt anyone was holding their breath waiting to see how this worked out, but I've been meaning to let you know for awhile now. :oops: So. I added some water, just a bit....warmed it in a hot water bath and stick blended the coconutmilk/lye solution. It worked! Amazingly...

    Coconut Milk/Lye

    I had started out using my coconut & goat milk (and tomato juice) like this, BUT...I want to use all coconut milk, not 1/2 water. I still haven't done anything with this yet but added about a tablespoon of water and warmed it in a hot water bath. It loosened it up some, but not enough I don't...

    Coconut Milk/Lye

    Oh....I didn't realize HP had anything to do with a crockpot. :oops: First I'm going to try a hot water bath, see if it works...I doubt I could make it any worse anyway. If that doesn't work I guess I'll add more liquid and stick blend the crap out of it....and if THAT doesn't...

    Coconut Milk/Lye

    Oooooh, I didn't think about the fat in the coconut milk....ugh. But your logic there does make sense. HP means hot process, right?? Never done that before (though I've thought about it on several occasions) so I'm not sure. How would doing the soap HP be different than CP? I guess what...

    Coconut Milk/Lye

    Hi All! I have a problem I'm hoping someone has a solution to. I froze my canned coconut milk then added my lye slowly, it was fine until I had to abandon the process due to an emergency. So it sat there on the counter overnight and the next day. Now my lye/milk mixture is the...

    Goats milk

    I believe the raw milk keeps longer. In fact....I buy raw milk in the carton. I have let it set out on the counter for days then used it to make soap. Worked fine. I believe I learned way back when that a certain person on this forum kept it in buckets, unrefridgerated. I've never tried...
