Super Itchy Scalp!! *UPDATE: help!*
My dreads are 5 months old. The past few days my scalp has been incredibly itchy. So so itchy! I have tried adding tea tree oil, eucalyptus oil and peppermint oil to my shampoo and flaxseed gel and it hasn't helped at all. I just discovered that my dog has a few fleas but there is no infestation. plus 90% of my house doesn't have carpet. I have had my husband go through my dreads thoroughly several times to see if by some strange chance I have gotten fleas from the dog... Nope. no fleas or lice. Plus SE said fleas won't infest human hair. I just had him check my scalp again about 5 minutes ago and nothing. no bugs, no redness (not even from me scratching,) no bites, no eggs. he did say that he noticed at my roots that there was some dandruff type stuff with a slight yellow tinge. He said it looked just like dandruff other than the yellow tinge.
well, I live in Florida and my husband says we have hard water. somehow i'm clueless and didn't realize that fact. I have been washing my dreads with castile soap. do i have build up on my scalp? and if so, is that what is causing this awful itchiness? and how can i get rid of the build up?
