Hey everybody! Here I am looking for some good advice about my dreads again. I am currently torn between whether I want to buy some essential oils to add to my bs wash or if it would be better for me to buy one of the organic shampoo bars that are linked above. I have 1 month old baby dreads (if they can even be called that yet). I have been using bs and water for washing my hair up to this point. The only problem is my hair must be transitioning to my new ways of maintenance because my roots become oily yet is also a bit itchy sometimes, with a slight dandruff problem. Also I really want my hair to smell fresher. So I have been set on improving my shampoo with some tea tree oil and rosemary oil and see how that works out for me. I have browsed the shampoo bars that are availableand there is one that is tea tree and rosemary for pretty much the same price as what it will cost me to buy the oils, which is where the problem of choosing one over the other comes in. Another factor that has me torn is the fact that in about a month from now I will be living on the road for a while, so I wonder if buying a shampoo bar would be easier and more convenient for me than continuing with the bs method. I have been trying to come to a decision for several days now and I would love some advice from any of you experienced dreaders. What do you recommend for my situation and what do you feel is the healthiest option for my hair?
