Dr. Bronner's Tutorial?

Hola folks :) I'm dreading my hair in a week. I went and got some Dr. Bronner's so I could start using it and work out how much dilution I like and such. I've used it a few times now and I'm kind of stumped. The first time I used it I diluted it 1:4 and it left my hair feeling like nasty residue for days. Today I tried 1:8 and it still felt so icky that I had to wash it out with my old Herbal Essences.

I must be doing it wrong :(

Is there some technique I'm missing? I've never used anything so liquidy to wash my hair before, so I've just sort of been dumping it on my hair and scrubbing like crazy. But I end up getting it in my eyes and mouth... and it stings quite a bit.

Also, maybe I'm just using too much? I figured like 2oz was fine because it's quite diluted, but would less be better?

Any tips, really, are welcome. I want to get it figured out before I dread so I'm not having the residue feel with the dreads. Thanks so much!!!

mod post on a quiet day: tattoos et.al!

hey everyone! this is one of those special BREAKING THE RULES posts that comes with being a mod.

please feel free to use this thread to post pictures of any bodyart you want to show off. you don't need to post dreads pics; you don't even need to have dreads. the pics must stay in this thread alone - don't start a separate post unless you follow the usual community rules.

so you go ahead & show off that new piercing, fresh tattoo work, your first tattoo, a crazy dye job (on dreads or not!), whatever you've done to yourself that you feel like sharing. track this post, comment as much as you like, & enjoy!

faeries do it better

old dread set

I found this picture on my computer. This was my "neglect" in 2006....one month in. all i did was wash my hair every other day with dr. bronners.

old set

last night two of my friends sectioned and backcombed my hair.....no pic yet. need new batteries.

quick question :)

I checked the memories, but couldn't find anything specific to waterparks - only swimming pools and I feel like they're pretty different, cause swimmin in a pool and splashin down a water slide are 2 different experiences. So does anyone have dread waterpark experience? Can they stay that wet all day long? Is the "yucky" water there bad for them, or does it matter?

Also, I went to the Mt. Dora art festival today and saw some cute dreadies. :)
So, hi if you were there too and I saw you. haha :)
