Too much sebum/ scalp grease.
Help! Save My Dreads
i know most locticians act like they got a liscence so they can't possibly learn anything from anyone ever again.
but i am always learning new things, and then able to pass them on. ..when i started all i knew was "throw away the comb' that was it, nothing more at all
everything else ive learned was from the community, either what works, or, what should be avoided.
i never stop learning and would never have the arrogance to claim i know everything.. this, for instance was a case where i was using my best guesses based on all i learned, and even our best experts, 1 with almost 4 decades in hair care, couldn't figure it out
i was strongly leaning towards body chemistry, but never even considered being vegan might be the cause (and missed that in the discussion)
