Dry Scalp, bit itchy


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Thanks SA

Teatree oil makes my scalp more itchy I find.

I was using Dr Bronners up until about two months ago and I'm pretty sure that's how my really bad case of itchy scalp/dermititus started. Because I wasn't diluting it (and the water here is really hard), and I think I was using far too much of it as well.

Doctor gave me Betacap, a steroid lotion, which worked great at eradicating the itchiness but as soon as I stopped using it the itchiness would come straight back.

So then I found Nizoral shampoo (over the counter in the pharmacy) and it's working REALLY well. But it's a medicated shampoo not to be used often and it really dries out the scalp and hair.

So I will put place and order with Vicky for the dreadlock bars ... are the bars better than the shampoos? My dreads are six months old.

Dry Scalp, bit itchy


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

What can I use on my dry scalp - preferably something that isn't greasy and something that won't loosen my dreads? Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

Show Us Your Recovery Pictures

Dmitry, thank you so much for these before and after photos. I found this site two days after I'd had mine made the crotchet way. I'm seven weeks into my crotchet recovery now and what I love most is finding before and after photos of people who went neglect after having started the crotchet way. Because it gives me hope! So thank you! What a big difference between your Day 1 photo and your Day 374 photo. Was so happy to catch this post yesterday in the feed. GREAT!!!

Combining Dreads


Introduce Yourself

I want to combine some of my dreads, Is sewing two together as damaging as crotchet?

the spirituality of dreading (regardless of religion or lack of)


History and Religious Significance

My favourite bits are:

There's also a dedication to self, to be true to te self

and I can't find it now, I think it was in one of your comments, but something about how

ultimately the dreads are within.

I would be totally gutted if I had to shave my head or cut my dreads and I wish I'd had the confidence to dread when I first wanted to ten years ago. But if my head was shaved that for me would be the real test of my spirituality - could I still love and feel full, or is my connection to Love and fullness dependent on my hair. The real dreads are within and that can never be taken away. I know this intellectually but in actuality I'd be miserable and so I've got a long way to go. I'm not going to get rid of my dreads, never! But the real dreads are within.
