seborrheic dermatitis dreadlocks
I have read on Wikipedia that it can be treated with Apple Cider Vinegar rinses after washing. Diluted 1:1 with water. Sunlight is also helping to reduce the symptoms. But i guess you need to ask an expert for this tricky question. Panterra Caraway is a member on here and she is a professional hair dresser. She might know an answer to your question. On her profile page here is also her facebook link. Feel free to ask her, she is very cooperative!

hi, like was asked what method, what you wash with an how often are all important
my initial suggestions
1 wash with either the teatree or patchouli from dreadlockshampoo.com try both to see which is most effective
2 wash only with cool to cold water rinsing as cold as you can stand (in winter wash with just ever so slightly warm just enough to not be cold still rinse cold)
3 was every 2 or 3 days weekly is a minimum but if you start seeing symptoms on day 3 wash on day 3
4 skip the honey for now to see how effective this is honey, medical grade honey is great on burns sunburns that sort of thing but its possibly going to clog pores and while it provides some relief to itches i'm not sure its the most appropriate treatment tearea and rosemary are great for dandruff and dermatitis and patchouli for psoriasis. however you may just be dealing with nothing more then common dry flaky scalp which hot water alone can cause.
