Must try
I had heard such good reviews on this deep cleansing wash that I thought I'd give it a go. I'm sure you could use this wash on non dreadlocked hair but I don't think the results would be as good. If you have dreadlocks this is a must try, my head feels much cleaner, my hair looks cleaner and after soaking your dreads for a couple of minutes the result are instantly clear once you see all the dirty and residue in the water.

Yah but some people see them as dirty and that's not really fair to people who keep them clean
