Sometimes I find scabs on the back of my head

Hello. I mostly wash my hair with the Baking Soda + Sea Salt and ACV rinse. Sometimes, though, I will scratch the back of my head and find a scab back there. Has anyone experienced this?

I have no experience with this, but how close are your dreads to your scalp? It could be because the hair is pulling on your scalp. You may also be scratching too much.

my hair isn't dreaded much yet, so I don't think it's hair pulling on the skin

I don't really scratch it much either

It could be scalp blemishes, too, LordMoe. You can get zits on any skin surface on your body.

You might scratch one and then... scab. It sucks but I've gotten a few.

Oilier skin types, drier skin types, doesn't matter. Anyone can get a zit, even on their scalp.

If it's not a blemish then it could just be clusters of dead skin cells; natural exfoliation. Since we don't brush our hair any longer our scalp doesn't get the exfoliation that it used to.

When I do my BS wash I make sure that I rub gently but thoroughly in my scalp all over. Also, I use a fine tipped squeeze bottle to get the BS solution all in my roots.

I get them sometimes if I wait a little too long between washings. I think it is actually built up skin cells, not from an injury to the skin.

Maybe try easing into the BS/ ACV routine by doing a weak shampoo wash every other time? Give it time to adjust. Ive found that my scalp is a lot happier with me in doing this.
