Smelly dreadhead - Cause and Prevention
Hi wonderful dreaddy community,
I just want to get your inputs regarding the subject. I know I've read a lot of thread about the topic but I think I'm missing some points.
I'm on my 6th month of neglect/freeform dreading. I'm using TeaTree & Nag Champa Liquid shampoo and Tea Tree bar from DLS + TeaTree EO rinse(sometimes). The trouble I'm having is now is sometimes being kinda smelly dreadhead. I can't actually explain the exact smell to name it, but after my wash day or in between wash day, my head become smelly like a smell of wet/damp hair for long period of time/kinda sweaty smell? maybe?
I noticed this issue when I'm using the liquid one but sometimes when using the bar one, I too got the smell but not that too much like when in the liquid. I know drying your hair is a big factor so sometimes when the time permits I sit/stand under the sun to dry but often times I just sit in front of a fan and wait for like an hour or two for drying. I also do some Tea Tree EO+water in a spray bottle and use in between wash but maybe I'm missing the correct amount or procedure to apply.
What do you think about this logic? - Residue(becomes dandruff) + Sweat + Not so dry hair after wash = Smelly dreadhead(also itchy)??
Would appreciate any inputs, thanks in advance.
