Residue-free soap?

by Emma Newman

I want to make my own bar of soap for washing dreadlocks, but I don't know where to start. It has to be residue free - do you have any advice that you could offer?

Many thanks!

Sorry but I don't know what type of soap would be appropriate for dreadlocks.

Often people complain about residue from shampoo bars but they tend to use a vinegar rinse to help reduce it.

I'm posting your question so others can contribute.

Good luck,

Another option to avoid residues is to use the foam insted if rubbing the soap/shampoo against the dreads. I use this trick when washing my hair, the results are better.

I grate my cp soap into boiling water and let it dissolve (about 10mins) then it is ready to use.
