I used a crochet to tidy up my front dreadlocks and I think my edges are being effected by traction alopecia, I had a stinging pan and itchyness on the left side of my head and now I'm worried it's irriversible. Is there something I can do to recover? I've been told before jojoba oil or castor oil with coconut oil is good for you roots.

step 1  throw crochet hook in trash

step 2  use jojoba on the roots to loosen them up

step 3  massage the scalp  in that area vigerously daily to get bloodflow  to the scalp, usean oiu8l that stimulsates bloodflow i think pepermint will do it maybe cinimon  look up  essential oils that  stimul.ate bloodflow to the skin/scalp 

step 4 optional take biotin daily  15,000 mg a day

step 5 wait  it will recover even if you only do steps 1 and maybe 2  as long as the roots loosen up  and stay loose it will recover

 

for the time being avoid tight  updos or pulling them back tight..or any tension on the scalp   as long as the roots loosen   it will be ok  u have an issue yes but nothing that several months of letting them be wont  recover

Okay, I've trashed the crochet needle. I forgotten I had this bottle of dreadlock shampoo, do you think it will help?

Thank you Soaring Eagle. :)

i would not use any ofthose jamaican mango linme crap 1st off they are made for african textured hair but they  (some) can cause such horoble buildup they turn blsack dreads grey to white  many contain waxes and petroleum products even plastics

i have no idea why they are so popular except the  "jamaican' and "rasta' branding

Okay, I'll toss that out too. I had it laying around my bathroom and remembered why I didn't used it again. I have Dr. Bronner's castil soap, and I also have bakin soda and essential oils too, Rosemary oil, lavender oil, eucalyptus oil, and tea tree oil. Would those be okay for now?

It was tingly to the point it became irritable and flaky as if I dumped my head in leomonade. How long does shipping take to Australia?

it takes a lil bit like 2 weeks i tyhink  they are shipped the next morn though

and yea the sulphates are skin iritants   they cause sandruff psoriasis dermatitis  even cancer well at least the sls does but its recomended to avoid all sulphates sulphides etc

they just make foam thats it but are toxic and  iritate the skin
