I don't know if i washed my hair wrong as my scalp is itchy and full of dandruff though it seems this is common at first but i think i just stabbed a guess at what to do. I scooped some soda into luke warm water in the sink and dunked my head and half let it soak and half lightly massaged my scalp over about five minutes then used fresh water to rinse it. It got rid of most of the grease. No ACV. I havent found any yet but should this make a difference and how do i use it? I'm also interested in oils as i have a place i can buy them...

So i mix up baking soda, water and diluted acv together and pour over hair then wait...then rinse? Sorry i need it spelled out so much :D

acv will help yes
mix a rinse with diluted acv pour in over the baking soda without rincong 1st wait a couple min then rince

oils for danfdruff teatree rosemary more rosemary then teatree
Ok so i got my oils today not got the chance to get acv yet so il see how it goes tomoro but not much itching today so thats good. Once iv done the wash with my soda and oils i rinse with diluted ACV and im good to go?
Another oil question..someone said use teatree sparingly, is one wee drop enough or a few?
Peppermint oil in my baking soda wash is doing a great job for my scalp!
pepermints more a tingle to cool itches i dont think it actualy treats dandruff but could be wrong

teatree and rosemary help most
what i find is ..cold cold rinse works wonders u use a freezing rinse and dandruffs gone (i use a cool but bearable wash freezing rinse)

i usualy use acv or white vinagar after the baking soda but not every time
It's treating mine and I have had it for as long as I can remember.
I have bad dandruff, caking, flaking, itchy, clumpy, dandruff but not since the peppermint treatment.
Makes sense because rosemary, lavender, sage etc are part of the mint family.
Feels good too.
I have used rosemary and it doesn't come near the results that peppermint is having.

i didnt know lavander and sage were i knew basil was..interesting story we had so many varieties of mints and basils growing that they seemed to interbreed and recombine into the original ancient strain they all split off from, chewing it tasted like basil, but putting it in water to make a tea tasted like mint..was interesting

sorry off topic
ill have to try it

Ohhh I love mints and it is fascinating how they all work. I used to stay away from them(with the exception of rosemary) , duh, but not any more.

A side note about crazy herbs is I found wild Grandfather Sage growing in my yard!
So stoked I've wanted some for awhile and was thinking of building a sweat (non traditional to native sweat but a sweat) and I was by the fire drumming yesterday and I see this tall red flower and I walk over to it and right next to that is Grandfather sage!!!! (sorry totally not related but I'm so happy about it, well being its a mint I guess it ties in LOL)
I thought it only grew in southern climates.

I love mints in cold water especially with cucumber, wow, talk about hydrating freshness, it cools ya right down in high temperatures!

I think oregano is a mint to ya know, but heres a little copy paste on peppermint from a web site on oils and dandruff Peppermint Oil

//Peppermint oil contain anti-inflammation and antiseptic properties, which work together in treating the redness or irritation caused by dandruff on the skin of your scalp. It also creates a cooling effect, which help in fully eliminating dandruff problem. However, peppermint oil is a bit too strong so you need to be wary about using it, especially for those that are sensitive to menthol since you can develop adverse reactions.//

I did use a bit too much I was feeling weird but my head felt awesome LOL
Its been about 5 days since I washed my hair a record for me, I usually have to wash frequently because of flaking and itching.
Oh heres a link from where I got the above info from http://hubpages.com/hub/dandruff-treatment-with-essential-oils you can find lots on peppermint and dandruff in google.

Hey island mamma thanks for info bout peppermint. I might try that as te tree and rosemary arent removing anything. In fact my sister said she thought i had nits it looked so bad :/ ew i looked in the mirror after and i think she was exagerating :) but caking dandruff is getting to me...
Ouch, let me know how it goes...
