I'm about 1 1/2 months in to dreading my hair (neglect). I have a couple matted sections on the back of my head (most likely from friction when sleeping), but the rest is just starting to section. Couple questions/concerns.
I've read to shampoo whenever they feel dirty. But at the same time, to work towards shampooing less frequently. I am a competitive powerlifter and I train at least 5 times a week. After each training session, my hair feels and looks dirty. Obviously that equals washing my hair 5 times a week. Every where I've read says thats too much. Also, I use an organic shampoo from a place in Florida called DollyLocks (contains essential oils), and when I'm out of that, I picked up a Tea Tree Tingle shampoo from Trader Joe's (I found it recommended on another site). Any input?
I've been experiencing dandruff on my scalp and into the matted sections of hair. Not sure if this is due to the amount of shampooing (above) or something else. The shampoos I use don't really feel like I'm getting my hair clean (maybe it because they don't lather due to essential oils being the base).
I just started and don't want to quit now. But I also don't want to walk around with dandruff all over my head.
