Hi- I'm pretty sure I'm going to get dreadlocks soon. Not totally sure, but mostly, but I'm waiting till I definitely know. This is kinda a big deal for me, because I've never done anything really drastic to my hair, but something about the dreads really interests me; just their history, how they've been around for so long, and of course, I like the look.
I'm going to do it the backcombing way, partially because of my own impatience, and a lot because my mother is being so nice about it that I feel I should make them as neat looking as possible.

What I wanted to ask you guys, who all seem to know what you're doing, what kind of soap you use to wash your dreads. I read that you can't use perfumes or anything that leaves a residue. Can you get soap like this at a regular store, or do you have to order it?
