Painful scalp


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

I moved the big dready to the other side of my head and have been rearranging it everyday for the past couple days and it's wonderful! It has really helped my head feel better. I think that and massaging my scalp was what did it. Now I just need to keep this up so I don't end up in the same position again. Thanks for your help everyone!

Painful scalp


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

It's not sore like a pimple, it's a dull pain.The sensation is kind ofhard to explain.I slept with it flipped to the other side and it already feels better! Wooohoo!

Thank you Taye!

Soaring Eagle, what's all of this stuff I'm hearing about apple cider vinegar? What should I be doing with it?

Painful scalp


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Hello everybody! I have been naturally dreading for about a year and a half (I stopped brushing my hair in December of 2009 and have never used any dreading methods or products) and within the past several months the top of my scalp has been extremely painful. I havea big mama dread up there and that's the area where most of the pain comes from. I don't have a lot of dandruff but it's so fucking painful. I think it's because of lack of stimuation since I don't do any maintenance and obviously don't brush my hair. I'm going to try salt water and apple cider vinegar and see how that goes. I'm also going to flip that dread so it falls to the other side of my head. Any suggestions are welcome!

Shampoos and Soaps ~ Maybe get a list started


Dread Maintenance

Soap on dreads has never seemed like a good idea to me. I think it's too hard to get out and the bubbles and residue that get soaked into the dread makes me nervous. Soaring Eagle's recipe is the best: baking soda, tea tree oil, lavendar oil and others for smell. It works great and I also use it as body wash, hand soap, and deodorant.

sensitive scalp problem?


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

The top of my head is also extremley sensitive and hurts so bad. I think it's because dreaded hair doesn't get much blood flow to it because you're not brushing it and stimulating the scalp as much as you would with undreaded hair. I really like Dee Dee's idea though, that could definitely be the case and I'm going to switch my part and see how it goes! I'd like to know if that has helped either of you (:

Amount of times you should wash your dreads and the amount I want to wash them.


Dread Maintenance

Wash your hair when it gets dirty. I mean DIRTY. If it's too clean it won't dread up.

Fleas and hwatknot


Dreads Hair and Scalp Health

Eucalyptus oil is excellent for fleas. They don't like it so they will hop off if you dab it all over your scalp. We used it when my dogs had fleas and it worked, plus I never got them and I think it was probably because I dabbed eucalyptus oil between my dreads.

Gardening


General Talk

At my mom's house we have a HUGE garden with everything, tomatoes, a LOT of spinach, too many pumpkins, potatoes, and just recently I planted some peas that my science class had been watching grow. At my dad's we have a mulberry tree which is great, a plum tree and a pepper garden. I'm trying to grow some moss in the shade under some trees too!
