i heard baking soda takes the residue and chemicals out of hair or something. idk if its true or not lol
I found something that really works (for me) - I woke up this morning scratching so bad I thought I was going to make my scalp bleed. I came on here and found a discussion, that I cant seem to find now, where SE suggested a few drops of rosemary and peppermint(I think)oils in a water spray. I must admit I was very sceptical that a bit of mist was going to stop the unbareable itchyness, but it bloody worked! I didnt have peppermint so I put a few drops of rosemary, a few of lavendar and one of tea tree (same ones I use to wash with) in with clean water, I sprayed a little mist from afar onto my head where my partings are, shook my locs about a bit and it hasnt itched since! - Btw I didnt spray much, my hair wasnt damp or anything.
Was it the placebo effect? I dont care, it stopped the itching and me scratching it, so it works for me : )
t gekl if u want residue that causes mold and if u want tio smell like tar
the baking soda and herbs (rosemary/teatree) are a way better option
i used t gel while woi=orking in an office and the boss started complaining about the tar smell and my hair felt like it was coated in sticky gross tar almost like wax..i would not recomend t gel for dreads ever
