I've tried both brands and prefer Dreadhead HQ, but it would be most environmentally friendly to use a soap or shampoo made locally, if you can find one.  I can't Wink  I use different shampoos all the time and Dr. Bronner's.  None of them seem to affect my dreads as far as being knotty, but I do find that some brands seem to sort of repel water better than others so i dry more quickly.  Also, some of them make my hair sort of droopy.

droopy eh? do u think there may be some type of conditioning agent in them too? Yeah I get mine at the local, not really a health food store, no food is there, but health store I guess. Anyways, I like to soak my dreads in epson salt water every now and again while I takea bath, cleans then and helps them bind together!

My dreads are a year and a half old and i try to scrub a bar of soap across my head about once a week, but that's pretty much it.  i think i have it way easy compared to all you folks, with a whole head of these monsters.  my 14 are enough.  I like tying them on top of my head though.

I've always used Dreadhead Hq products, but i was wondering if anyone here has used knotty boy products, and if they work or not. I was thinking of switching to them because they seem to be more environmentally friendly, but do they actually work?

i much perfer knottyboy... (i still use the shampoo even after i cut my dreadies.)dreadheadhq is gross =P but what do you mean "do they work"...?

also, the cooling sprays that they have, the tightening gels, and the teas, do these actually help?
