i know that you need to use shampoo that doesn't leave any residue and i was told that you could figure out if it left any if you wash your hands and then smelled them and then if you could still smell it then it left a residue. well what if you have nonscented shampoo? does it still leave a residue you just cant smell or no?

thanks for all your help

    one of the best shampoos to use would be Dr Bronner's. way cheaper than purchasing online from a dread supply place, and it does have a few sents you can use, the main issue with Dr Bronner's, is that it will dry out your skin some... the drying out is good for your hair anyway...

        Wed, May 30, 2007 - 2:58 PM not find Bronner's in Cali...sounds crazy. - There is a toll-free number under the 'contact' link. I'm sure they'll be able to hook you up with someone in your area! Good luck!

        Suave clarifying shampoo is good and CHEAP and in my opinion is comperable to DreadHead's shampoo. I'd dilute it a bit though cause it's thick and might be hard to rinse out. Dr.Bronners can be found at natural health stores or earth stores. Really any shampoo should be ok as long as it doesn't have conditioners (should say "deep cleansing" or "clarifying") and you rinse really really well!
