Medications that are interfering with the locking process
Dreads Hair and Scalp Health
So, I haven't seen too much on dreading and medication interaction with the process. I am currently on several steroids, now don't think the worst, these are not for personal gain of physical structure. Lol. The steroids are for a tumor issue I have inside my body, but the side effect of one of the medications is giving me some trouble. EXCESSIVE OIL everywhere, particularly my scalp, not the dread ends themselves. I have followed suggestion and performed the BS/ACV wash/rinse to help every 2-4 days or so and kept the oils in the mix minimal. But each time I do this, I only find relief for maybe 24hrs before I am an itchy, oily mess again. Not to mention each time i wash, i am loosening more and more. Which is not really a big deal, as this is part of the journey, but I will be on this medication for some time and I would like a long term solution to help this. Is there a better method to "dry out" my scalp without having to wash my ends each time, as they are much drier then scalp. Overall, my baby-locks are coming along very nice, the ends have locked well in a short period of time and shrunk several inches in only a few weeks. Some have pulled smaller ones into them leaving little congos I have to split at the root. I am more excited to see the length return again in time. Thank you all for your advice.
