why am i getting scabs on my scalp? dreadlocks are approaching 2 months old now. I have almost no itchiness anymore, so i don't feel like it is from me itching. they aren't tight at the roots, so that can't be it. i do have dandruff after a few days of not washing, but when i was with BS/ACV rinse it goes away. When i was i massage my scalp to stimulate it.

i am wondering if it is the baking soda. I make tooth powder for toothpaste and use baking soda and sometimes if i use too much (get the mix too baking soda heavy vs peroxide) i will get raw gums. I have heard that baking soda can be caustic for some people. Does anyone else have this issue? if it is the baking soda---what do i wash with instead? i have dr bronners, but it leaves residue in my hair and doesn't clean the way the baking soda does.

i'm sad :( i love my dreadlocks, but i have light blonde hair and def don't want people to see red wounds on my scalp and don;t want them to be there!

How much do you use, how do you use it and how often?
1 cup in a 2 gallon vinegar jug with EO--I have a TON of hair--I wash 1x a week--sometimes 2x a week if I have been outside or swimming a lot.

it isn't left over from when i was super itchy--they are new. I am doing th ACV rinse. I am going to use less baking soda and maybe add a wee bit of doc bronners peppermint soap to it and see if that helps.

Hmmm seems like a lot to me. Of water and BS. I use two table spoons of BS in 2 cups of water. I have a ton of hair too. Its to my waist and hella thick and curly. Maybe try using my ratio???

thanks for the response--that wouldn't even get 1/4 of my hair damp though. the scabs have gone away now--so--i will try something different next wash :)

I was getting the same thing on my scalp, and also using bs/acv. Turned out it was too much bs for my skin. Maybe try half that amount of bs in the same amount of water followed by cold water rinses and see if that improves things. Since I did that I haven't had a single issue with my scalp.

I wash in the shower, so two cups of water with baking soda, over my already wet hair is plenty, you really should try something different if its leaving scabs.

I found a scab yesterday but that was it. I think it must have been from the first time I used bs/avc. I used way too much but all the itchies and scabs are gone. some dandruff here and there but I think thats just from my bad aim with the sea salt spray
do you use tea tree? My hubby gets some scalp problems with this dreads if he doesn't use tea tree on the regular.
I do, but minimally because TTO is very harsh to me because I have sensitive skin. I use a combo of TTO, peppermint and lavender EO in my wash.
