Hard water = Dandruff?

I've been dealing with a bit of dandruff problems ever since I have had my dreadlocks. I'm starting to think it's because of the hard water?

Atm I use the 'Kiss My Face Whenever' Shampoo, until my dreadlock soapbar and liquid soap arrives.

Now.. I have a shampoo which i KNOW will get rid of the dandruff, but I would like to keep that as my last option.

Am I right when I say that hard water causes dandruff or?

I would have to say yes it causes dandrufffrom my experience. I just started using dreadlockshampoo a couple days ago and my scalp is already getting better.

How long have you had your dreads? I know that during my first two months my scalp tok a little while to adjust to the changes of having dreads, but in time my scalp adapted. Tea tree oil also helps.

im not so sure hard water does but dreads do at least early on

the only way u can test this theory is wash in softer water for awhile (couple months) then go back to hard a couple months and see

I have hard well water & never get dandruff. Since day one of dreading (1yr), I have used the baking soda, acv rinse, finishing with a cold rinse. Have you tried doing a deep cleanse with baking soda to lift all that away from your scalp? Certain essential oils will help for extreme dandruff, my mouse is not working well to post the recipe link, but type in the search bar "essential oils dandruff Soaring Eagle" and this page will certainly help you.

Do not use regular dandruff shampoo as a last resort, it WILL leave a residue

Peace

Is your hard water from a well or the city?

I used to use the baking soda and ACV, but it never worked with me. I used cold water, and essential oils.

So try that page I recommended, it makes a paste to leave on your scalp, that should help it out. :)
