Hi all. I've been letting my dreads do their natural thing while cleansing them with SE's BS recipe. More specifically 3/4 cup baking soda, 10 drops tea tree oil, 20 drops lavender oil, 20 drops rosemary oil. After letting it soak for 20 to 30 minutes I rinse my dreads out with cool water. After that I do the AC rinse ( same amount of oil as BS recipe, with 1 gallon of water and a "glob" of cocoa butter). I also spray with water and sea salt after each wash. I also tried 5 drops of lemon, 1 drop of tea tree oil and 1 drop of rosemary with a 50/50 mix.I'm having two main issues with my dreads and scalp.
1.The main issues i'm having is dandruff. It goes away after the wash but comes back within hours. I can't seem to stop the dandruff no matter what. In my line of work this is unacceptable, both to me and my job.
2. A few of my dreads are too loose at the roots. I know that 3 to 4 inches is normal for a loose root, however a few of my dreads are coming undone and are halfway loose while the other half is dreaded.
Please, I DO NOT want to take my dreads out, but if I can't at least fix issue number one I'm going to have to take my dreads out.
