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.

Combining Dreads


Introduce Yourself

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

Crotcheting damages hair


crochet and dread tools recovery

One of my dreads right in the middle of my forehead was too big - the section was almost an inch and a half and I was worried that in time it will grow fatter and then I'd have a big horn to deal with.

It took me three hours to undo it because it'd been so tightly crocheted. I couldn't have been more careful and yet I lost a lot of hair. And the hair I lost was in little pieces because it'd been broken by the crochet hook.
