911need help.....otherwise i'll have to take out my dreads
Here is what helped me:
I am dreading now for 6 mounth (this days is anywersary).
I have had in that mounts all kind of scalp issues and conditions. on my shower there is weak water stream, so it never rinsed out complite dandruff. You need strong water stream, if you don+t- like me... I use bucket, or a bottle for risening with clear water.
I had pain of scalp, itch, dandruff. I am washing my hair 2-3 times per week. when it was worst I have used shampoo with mentol against dandruff (it is for man- and it is against itch)-it worked for me perfectly.Ones I coud not sleep from itchyng, I must go under shower and it always helps.
I made also bottle of water with mentol, good amount of drops of pepermint oil and rosemary, to put on spots where itched most :D
I tryed to wash soda/AC, but sometimes from AC it was worse for me...and my soul mate (love) hates AC smell so I am back on regular shampoo.
Lately, I started to look closely to SEPARATE them regularly - it looks that it helps for pain, becouse they don't take some far away hairs, so there is no pooling and tension.
And I started to use that rinsing with huge botle to produce strong stream of water.
Dandruff- Some of typs are yeasts. yeasts like to live on acid, dark, wet spots. It has also something to do with eating lot of meat (ti makes your body be mora acid, and our blood must be little soda like- that unbalance can produce lot of issues related with sweating, dandruff and so one). Try also to dry your scalp with hair dryer after washing(so your scalp is not wet for long). Other typs are like seborrhea, it comes from inside of body.
Now I am washing my hair with cheepest huge botle shampoo for grasy hair and it works for me best for now...
Lately my dreadlocks find peace, and start to feel good on my head.. I can imagine that hair must accomodate on new ways of growth, scalp must to weare all that weight- be gentle and polite with your body, and give him time to learn new ways.
It is jurney, One bed day, or week is not make me run home and hide under blanket. I knowe that my body will accommodate... I just need as mouch is posible not to think about my dreadlocks.
Separate them, keep them cleen and waith, I see on photos you are doing great job!
