rosemary oil and cold cold rinse

if u use tearree dont use too much use 3 times more rosemary then teatree

i thik lil lemongrass can help too but rosemary is best

 

oh and try the baking soda deep cleanse with the traatree rosemary pepermint

follow with acvg rinse and the jojoba or better yet aloe

ive tried everything also lol i just said screw it and went back to using sulfur 8 products like the shampoo and scalp conditioner cream. works for a few days for me :) but if you prefer the natural approach its not the best thing for you. My dry scalp would wake me up out of a sound sleep so i decided what was more important lol

What do your flakes look like? If they're small, white and loose with no odor then the the type of dandruff you have may be pityriasis capitis and is cause by the dead skin on the scalp shedding quicker then you can wash it away. This type of dandruff is commonly treated with over the counter dandruff shampoos* and regular acidic rinses like apple cider vinegar.

 

If your flakes are thick, greasy and yellow or off white then it may be seborrhea dermatitis which is caused by heavy product build up, especially if there is a musty smell in th hair that lingers even after washing.  Using a clarifying rinse and staying away from heavy products is the best way to treat the scalp.

 

If you have been using some sort of medicated shampoo or rinse in your hair for more then 3 weeks without any result, you should really go to a dermatologist so they can see if you really do have dandruff or some other skin condition like psoriasis which is commonly mistaken for dandruff and has be treated with a prescription.

 

*Be careful with the dandruff shampoos, many of them will dry out your locks.  Any of the rinses mentioned in the other responses would be good alternatives.

ive found the bs acv and herbs work well for both types bu t im betting its the heavy buildup type

but thanks thats some great info

 

Maybe evaluate what is in your diet as well.  Heavily processed meats,cheeses,and wheat can have an effect on the condition of your scalp.  What you put on the outside could illeviate the symptoms for a while.  But maybe you need to also look at it from the inside out.
TRINA THANKS I REALLY WANT TO GO ON A DIET BUT ITS SO HARD TO CHANGE WHAT I EAT ..........I SUM HELP IN THAT AREA THANKS MRH I REALLY NEEDED THAT INFO AND I WILL BE GOING TO THE DOCTOR ..THE DANDRUFF I HAVE IS WHITE LIKE SNOWFLAKES ......OH N SOARING EAGLE BUT WAT IS ACV? ............AMANDA THANK YOU ALSO AND IDK WHAT IS DRYIN MY HAIR OUT SO I WILL BE HEADIN TO THE DOCTOR ........MONTE IVE USED SULFUR 8 AND MY SCALP DRYED SO FAST LOL
how long have you had dreads. I found some of the "potions" work but time worked as well for me. at the beginning it's like your scalp is fighting with you and your new approach on hair care. if you haven't had dreads for a couple months don't worry too much your scalp will get used to it and things should mostly resolve themselves for the most part.
i have had dreads 4 almost 2 yrs

acv apple cider vinegar

try this drecipie


1 gallon water 1/3 cup baking soda 10 dreops teatree 30 drops each of rosdemary pepermint


pour on soak 10 min rinse

next 1/3 cup acv in a galon add a lil aloe very juice or jel (lily of he desert i thik its called makes a o\pure aloe it needs to be refridgerated) pour on soak 3 min or so rinse (if u want do acv 1st rinse then aloe and only 1/2 rinse  leave some in)

a cold cold cold after or final rinse helps too
