I just tried washing with 7th generation (natural) dishsoap today, and it worked quite well, and left no perfumey smell like some shampoos do. What was really interesting, though, was the bottle. I learned that most dish soaps have petroleum in them! I'll never put regular dish soap in my hair now. And, if we all switched to veggie soaps like 7th gen, we'd save a butt load of oil as a country. Just an interesting thought. If y'all want dread VIDEOS, you can check out my you tube. I've been blogging all month for National Blog Posters Month (NaBloPoMo), and my dreads are there everyday (except today's video...I had just washed.) Cheers.
