tea tree oil works for me! Not too much though, it seems to much will feed the problem. I put some in my bs/acv rinses and the problem lessens with every rinse :)

I grew dreadlocks for years and didn't even know about no residue shampoo. Do your best to rinse it out really well. Keep looking for a more suitable solution. Dreadlockshampoo cleared my scalp too.

There is actually a dandruff shampoo called clear, that is what I got, worked great, didn't loosen up things too much. My first time I was a little too vigorous as it was the first good wash in days. Moderation, if you ar a purist then don't do it. But my scalp was hating me I had flakes, crust, scabs, it was not fun at all, I settled on the clear because it leaves the least residue, and has tea tree oil and ginseng. Over all not too shabby.

bs/acv didn't work for me either. it just made my dandruff worse. using dandruff shampoo once won't hurt your hair but over time it will probably leave residue. when you can afford it, dreadlockshampoo liquid or bars work wonderfully. i use the bars and my dandruff is pretty much non existent.

Definitely follow up with ACV. Then finish off with a cold rinse dandruff is just dryness of the scalp and when washing your scalp with hot water it will make the problem worse. Try to wash every two days and use cold water. I rinse my scalp everyday because I am a workoutaholic lol. I just do a quick rinse in the shower after every work out and wash my dreads with shampoo. I do the bs/acv twice a month just to get that extra junk out, honestly I am amazed that the bs/acv rinse is not grotesque. Just do the cold water and it should help immensely.
