Another Dr. Bronner's Soap Post

I've read the memories on this but my question still isn't fully answered (and I still would like opinions from the members who have joined since the past posts). I've been using Dr. Bronner's soaps for years on my body, but since I put in my dreads I've been considering using it as shampoo since a lot of you guys have positive feedback for it.

My baby dreads are 5 days old so I'm not going to wash them quite yet, but I still have brushable bangs that I've washed a few times with 1 squirt (tbs-ish) of Dr. Bronners peppermint soap to 1 regular sized shampoo bottle filled with warm water. There was no lather (after the inital foaminess after adding the water) or real clean feel afterwards so I'm willing to assume I either didn't dilute it enough or diluted it too much, or I just don't like it as a shampoo on my brushable hair.

My question is, if you use their liquid soap, how much (if any) do you dilute it? If you don't dilute it, do you notice an excess of soapy residue in your hair (or other problems)? And how do you like it in comparison to their bar soaps and other shampoos you've tried?


(Edited to reword it due to sleep deprived stupidity and broaden the original question.)
