Hello people. I'm kind of new to this site again after several years. Currently on my second dread journey since cutting off my two year old dreads in 2014. I'm almost 1 month into this set and my scalp itches furiously and I have alot of nasty dandruff. I use vicki's shampoo and it's great but does nothing for my scalp problems. The last time I had dreads I used vicki's bars and maybe once a month I'd do the BS/ACV and essential oils method and I rarely had scalp problems. I'm gonna try this method once my next wash day to see if it helps. I've tried using just spray bottle with water and tea tree, peppermint and a bit of sweet almond oil. It helps for maybe a couple hours but then the itching comes back. My dandruff remains tho.
I find the only thing that helps the most is tying my hair back pretty tight.
Anyways it's extremely annoying and I'd prefer avoiding seeing a dermatologist and or brushing them out, taking care of the problem and starting over again. Then again I'm only 1 month in.
Long story short. Anyone have any advice? Much appreciated. Will try and post pics later on
