Really need help now BS not good :(

3 weeks into dreads and I've been washing my hair twice a week with BS and ACV. It was great at first but then about 3 washes in my roots started to feel really weird and when i itched my scalp i had like white stuff under my nail.

Ive read a few more discussions with people with the same problem so i tried diluting my mixture even more but still had white stuff under my nail when i checked. I live in an area which has really hard water so I'm guessing thats the problem and the BS just isn't working properly or its not rinsing out :(

I was going to try the dreadlocks shampoo that is recommended loads on here but unfortunately I'm allergic to some of the ingredients so thats a no go and also i was going to buy somedr. bronzers but apparently that doesn't work to good with hard water ither :(

There also really really dry, some are even prickly to touch and I've used jojoba oil on them but it just leaves them feeling really oily :(I live in the UK and just cannot find a shampoo safe for dreadlocks anywhere and I'm in desperate need of something good that will work asap

I get that too, I'm pretty sure it's dead skin/dandruff or whatever that hasn't washed off properly. I don't think it's the baking soda. Try doing one of those deep cleanses and see if that gets it all out?

hmm then you have alkaline water too im guessing try heating the water?/

a drop of lemon juice will do the trick too but not the best option

okay i normally wash with warmish water but ill try mixing it in some hotter water see if that does the trick :D Thank you!!

Do you know anything that might help with the dryness? I've been mixing jojoba oil with my ACV rinse but its just feels really oily then the next day its just mega dry again :( i dont know wether this is normal or not but if its not do you know of anything else that will help?

Aloe gel or juice?

i can only find 99.8% aloe gel in my town so ill have to buy of the internet. Do i just mix it in with the wash or do i put it on my hair separate (sorry if this is a daft question i dont want to do anything wrong so I'm just double checking)
